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 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.

Rolling through Tobacco Hills

Horse ride through the rolling hills of Viñales, Cuba’s rustic cigar region. You’ll stay in a Casa particular and explore the valley on horseback or by foot. You’ll learn about the art of cigar-rolling and meet the local guajiros. If you’re looking for an authentic Cuban countryside experience, you’ve found it. Life isn’t staged in Viñales, it simply unfolds.

Cosy Cayo Levisa Island

Cayo Levisa Island is a little nook of beach bliss off Cuba’s northern coast. Heading for the island, you’ll be following in the footsteps of Hemingway, who discovered this archipelago on a fishing trip from Cayo Paraiso – the next islet along.  You’ll spend two nights in a basic resort on Cayo Levisa, without a care in the world. It’s sun-drenched, secluded and downright dreamy.

Overnight in Havana

You’ll return to Havana and stay in Havana Vieja. This is your chance for a final wander and to visit any sites you may have missed previously. The many art galleries and local craft markets mean you can stock up on any last minute souvenirs. Maybe you’ll have time to visit some of Hemmingways’ old haunts as well.
