Day 1 Havana

Arrive in Havana, Cuba’s vivacious, fun-filled capital. Head out on an orientation walk of the city. The crumbling colonial buildings, street-side baseball games and classic old cars will make you feel as if you've stumbled onto a 1950's movie set. For fantastic views of the city against its ocean backdrop, take a short cruise across to the Cabana Hill Fortress.

Days 2-3 Vinales

Drive through an exotic landscape of cane fields, tobacco plantations and swaying palm tress on the way to Vinales. Before arriving in this sleepy rural town, stop for a splash in a waterfall near Soroa. In the evening, watch as thousands of bats stream out of the limestone caves on a tour of the picturesque Vinales Valley.

Days 6-8 Trinidad

Soak up the amiable atmosphere of Cuba’s best-preserved colonial town, declared a World Heritage site in 1988.

In the evening, why not check out a local music or salsa performance.
