Itinerary

Travel to Havana on our Cuba Group tours

Day One: Havana

Known as the capital of fun during the 40’s and 50’s, this spellbinding city immediately captures the curiosity of her many visitors. But where do you start? We recommend those booked on our 15 Day Cuba Group Tour put on your walking shoes and take in Havana’s rich history, grand monuments, world famous cigars and scrumptious cocktails. You can easily get lost in Havana Vieja (old Havana), the old city of cobble stoned alleyways and colonial buildings, ancient squares and noted churches. The perfect day to get your bearings and meet your guide and group for an optional evening meal.

Please note that the first day of the tour is a joining day with no formal activities planned. We do organise your accommodation for this evening and a optional dinner with your guide and group.

Visit Cienfuegos on our Cuba Group Tours

Day Two: Cienfuegos

Stop off at Playa Girón/ Bay of Pigs, long associated with the USA’s first military failure in Latin America. The natural beauty of this area is stunning, with cave systems, coral formations and an abundance of sea life making it a must for snorkelers, divers and ocean lovers alike.

If Cuba had a Paris then it would probably be Cienfuegos, which stands out for its rich French-influenced architecture. A harbour city by location, the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean’ has seduced Cuban travellers for years due to its elegance and beauty. Founded in 1819 by Don Luis de Clouet, Cienfuegos luckily managed to remain free of pirate attacks, allowing this popular city to prosper. Explore the wide streets and promenades or enjoy a walk by the Malecon, the longest promenade on the island.“Cienfuegos is the city I like the best”, wrote Beni More, one of Cubas most important musicians in the first half of the 20th century. Check it out for yourself and see what you think.

Visit Trinidad on our Cuba Group tours

Day Three, Four and Five: Trinidad

Stop at the Che Guevara mausoleum and memorial in Santa Clara, where Che’s remains are immortalized following their discovery in Bolivia in 1997. Santa Clara holds a special place in Cuban history, where in December 1958, Commander Ernesto Che Guevara led his revolutionary rebels in the derailment of the armoured train carrying the ammunition Batista had sent to defeat Fidel – the revolution was won.

Then it’s on to the favourite destination of many a traveler to Cuba. Trinidad was founded in 1514 by Diego Velázquez and is considered a jewel in Cuban colonial architecture. For some, Trinidad is a living museum, stuck in the time of Cuba’s first War of Independence when local sugar plantations were devastated by fire. The vibrant colours and soulful music littered along cobbled streets will simply take your breath away.

Take the opportunity to visit a local waterfall, historic sugar mill or one of Cuba’s best beaches – Playa Ancon. An evening at one of Trinidad’s effervescent music venues is a must!

Travel to Camaguey on our 15 Day Cuba Group tour

Day Six and Seven: Camaguey

Don’t get lost in “La Ciudad Confusa” (the maze)! The labyrinth of winding streets and alleys of Cuba’s third largest city shouldn’t be enough to put you off visiting the beguiling city of Camaguey – a city built to confuse pirates.

With its large number of squares and parks, colonial architecture and enriched spiritual persona, Camaguey is a mecca for Cuban arts and culture. Plan a visit to a famous historical landmark or  explore a myriad of art galleries and handicraft exhibits – it’s entirely up to you! There are also some of Cuba’s best beaches close by at Playa Santa Lucia.

A guided tour on the back of a bicycle taxi is our gift to you!

Travel to Santiago de Cuba on our 15 Day Cuba Group tour

Day Eight and Nine: Santiago de Cuba

The second largest city in Cuba is surely its most dynamic. With a myriad of ethnicities calling Santiago home, it’s hard not to get swept away in its joyous and prepossessing surroundings. Plus its music and dance scene is quite possible the best in Cuba.

As the most Caribbean of Cuban destinations with a backdrop of mountains and rugged terrain, Santiago de Cuba has many things to show off and be proud of. It is the hub of most of the music genres in Cuba and the locals are hospitable, resourceful and virtuous.

Make sure you visit one of Santiago de Cuba’s famous tobacco factories when in town and take in a famous music venue or two in the evening on your 15 Day Cuba Group Tour.

Travel to Baracoa on our 15 Day Cuba Group tour

Day Ten, Eleven and Twelve: Baracoa

Cuba’s first colonial capital, Baracoa is set amongst a mixture of palm, chocolate and banana tress. It is a land blessed with many rivers and a healthy annual rain fall, that has worked to create some of the most lush vegetation and rainforest you will ever encounter. The town has remained relatively unchanged over the years, with several houses dating back to the 19th century and a system of colonial fortifications that includes Matachin Fort and La Punta Fort.

From Baracoa there are many outdoor excursions to go on, each making use of its beautiful surroundings. Explore the bountiful rivers in the area or go boating between the tall cliffs at the mouth of Yumuri River. You can also see over 900 species of endemic flora, including around 360 that are found only in this area.

Baracoa’s cuisine is world famous in Cuba and a BBQ group lunch is the best way to sample the delicious local produce.
