What's included in this trip
Cuban Highlights Ride SummaryAdd to Shortlist
With music in the air, crumbling colonial buildings, iconic 50s cars and a unique and often chequered history, Havana always rolls to its own fabulous beat.
A delightful city referred to as the 'Pearl of the South', Cienfuegos was designed beautifully by the French but emits a definite Caribbean vibe.
Guajimico's laidback vibe, azure waters and dense tropical forest make it an ideal place to swim, snorkel, dive, hike or simply relax with a book.
Colourful houses, cobblestone streets, wonderful people, great food and breathtaking vistas over cerulean seas make Trinidad a firm favourite among visitors.
Located in the Cuba's gorgeous Escambray Mountains, Topes de Collantes National Park has a wealth of caves, natural pools, waterfalls, plant species and native orchids to enjoy. Lake Hanabanilla's deep waters are teeming with trout and the forest reserve that creeps to its banks has great walking trails, pristine waterfalls and beautiful flora.
Santa Clara is where the final days of the Cuban Revolution played out and is now a cultural university town and the final resting place of Che Guevara. Havana has a tenacity that has seen it through 500 years of ups and downs, along with an infectious love of music, food and life in general.
