Days 1-4

Classic Cars in Havana

Havana has a distinct, exotic personality that you won’t find anywhere else on the planet. During this trip, you’ll stay in a local Casa particular near the heart of timeless Old Havana and take a city tour by classic car and foot. It’s the perfect way to explore the mix of crumbling colonial beauty, peeling bygone glamour and colossal Caribbean soul.

Las Terrazas Eco Experience

Days 4-6

Las Terrazas Eco Experience

Las Terrazas, Cuba’s pioneering eco-village is a beautiful natural playground just begging to be explored. Walk to hidden waterfalls, get to know the forest on foot and discover a unique biosphere saved from the brink of destruction. It’s a great place for families too, with lakes to swim in, zip lines to fly down, and a lovely friendly atmosphere. You’ll spend 2 nights tucked away amongst the forests and lakes of Las Terrazas, staying in a truly unique resort built around a giant tree. The area is an example of eco-tourism at its very best.

Cienfuegos and the El Nicho Waterfalls

Days 6-7

Cienfuegos and the El Nicho Waterfalls

You’ll spend the evening in the attractive port city of Cienfuegos, staying in a charming casa particular. The rest of the day you’ll have time to relax and explore the city.

The following morning you and your family will take a scenic 1-hour drive by hire car or private transfer into the nearby hills, and on to the El Nicho National Park. After paying a small entrance fee, you’ll have plenty of time to explore this beautiful area, take a dip in a crystal clear natural pool, and grab a spot of lunch before heading off to your next destination.

Days 7-10

Cuba, the Cuban Way

Get lost in a colonial daydream and dust off your dancing shoes on the cobbled streets of Trinidad. You’ll stay with a family in a traditional Casa Particular, and also take a fascinating bici-taxi tour with a local guide, getting you into the groove of this creative, colourful and quirky city. There are also some fun workshops available if you’d like to learn something authentically Cuban, just ask one of our specialists to arrange this for you.

Sunset and jumps

Days 10-13

Lazy Days in Varadero

Sometimes called the world’s greatest beach, tourists flock to Varadero like flamingoes to a lagoon. It’s easy to see why. A classic tropical paradise, it’s home to swaying palms, powdery sands and shimmery sapphire waters. Whilst it isn’t quite the authentic Cuba you’ll experience during the rest of your trip, it’s a great chance to unwind with the family before you head home.

Get Behind the Wheel

Travel by Hire Car

  • Customer in a hire car in Cuba

For a little extra freedom, you can choose to travel by hire car. The signposts can be a little confusing at times, and you’ll have to avoid the occasional pothole on the rural roads, but there’s very little traffic around and we think it’s a really lovely and adventurous way to explore the country. You’ll have a modern car complete with a map and insurance cover, so you’re all good to go!

"One of my favourite things about travelling in Cuba is simply watching life on the streets; kids playing football, old friends having a game of chess, salsa music lingering in the air. It's not hard to fall under Cuba's spell."
