What Cuba lacks in high-end luxury facilities, it more than makes up for through its natural beauty and fascinating history. The thing that really makes Cuba such a great family destination is the warmth and character of its people, which you’ll experience fully by staying in family-owned casa particulares for most of your trip. You’ll also visit the pioneering eco-village of Las Terrazas, and the waterfalls of El Nicho. You’ll finish your adventure relaxing with a cocktail on the white sands of Varadero, whilst the kids enjoy a splash in the pool.

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.

Days 7-10 – Cuba, the Cuban way

This morning you’ll head east for around 4 hours, by hire car or private transfer, to the attractive port city of Cienfuegos. 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.

Days 10-13 – Lazy days in Varadero

Today you’ll travel for around 4.5 hours to Varadero, on the northern coast. 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.

Sadly, it’s time to pack your bags and head to the airport for your return flight. We’ll arrange a private driver to collect you from your hotel and transfer you to Havana’s international airport.

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!
