Day 1 Havana

Arrive in Havana, one of the most spirited, rhythmic cities in the Americas. Experience a unique mix of faded Spanish architecture, vintage American automobiles and streets that are bursting with Afro-Hispanic beats of rumba.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Days 2-3 Trinidad

Shuffle from the narrow streets of Havana to the open highway, making tracks for the mausoleum of the legendary Che Guevara in Santa Clara. Then it's onto Trinidad, a World Heritage city that is known for its deep voodoo culture, colonial wealth and incredible music-filled lifestyle. Jump straight into the swing of things with a Cuban dance show, then bust a few moves in a saucy salsa class. There's also a chance to get into the groove with a group percussion lesson, visit the famous 'disco in a cave' or grab a ticket to the hottest event in town – a cabaret show.
ACCOM: Homestay - 2

Day 4 Camaguey

Swap the dance floor for the pavement and navigate the winding streets to the home of one of Cuba's most esteemed dance companies – the Ballet de Camaguey. Enjoy a tour of the ballet school and be treated to a live performance from these masters of dance.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Days 5-7 Santiago de Cuba

A revolution needs noise, and that's certainly the case with Santiago de Cuba – the loud and proud music capital of the Caribbean. Once a hotbed of revolutionary activity, these days it's known more for being the home of sol, a hybrid musical style that combines the tribal sounds of African percussion with the passion of Spanish guitar. After being treated to a performance by a traditional Cuban band, take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put your skills to the test. Take to the stage by dancing with professional local salsa dancers and join local musicians to record a song in a professional music studio.
ACCOM: Homestay - 3

Days 8-9 Havana

Return to the capital and perhaps celebrate the end of the trip by showing off your new dance moves at one of Havana's many salsa clubs.
