If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

Cuba, the place where the rhythm is contagious, the colors are vibrant, and the culture is immersive. Get ready for an enchanting experience!

This is the time to visit the island of Cuba, while the colonial ambiance of the 1950s remains and cities appear to be frozen in time. Colorful vintage cars roam the streets, facades of old buildings transport us to timeless atmospheres, and we still hear the sounds of La Revolución coming from old phonographs, mixed with shades of salsa and joy.

On this trip, we will visit the historic Havana and several landscapes of great beauty like the Sierra Maestra. One of the distinctive features of this trip is staying in “local houses,” which allows us to have rewarding interactions with the local population.

Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of “La Isla Grande,” where music, beaches, and people stand out.

Dia 2 Havana - Cienfuegos

Breakfast and departure to Cienfuegos.

One of the interesting things about Cienfuegos is its European charm; there are many houses and "boulevards" in colonial style, with an elegant Parisian atmosphere. There is even a Cuban composer and singer who referred to Cienfuegos as his favorite Cuban city.

During our stay we will have time to assimilate the atmosphere of the city through a stroll along its streets and its main square.

Dia 3 Cienfuegos - Camaguey trought Santa Clara

Breakfast and departure for Camaguey.

On the way, we will make a stop in Santa Clara, the place where the last battle of the Cuban Revolution took place in December 1958. Che Guevara and his troops ambushed a train carrying weapons to Santiago de Cuba, and this feat was a major step in bringing about the Cuban "Revolución". In this sense, we will visit the huge statue of Ernesto Che Guevara and the museum that portrays the life story of "Che Guevara".

In Santa Clara, we will also find a mausoleum with an "eternal flame" that honors the revolutionaries who died with "Che" in Bolivia.

Arrival in Camaguey, the third largest Cuban city that since the creation of its current layout in the dawn of the 17th century has aimed at defense against pirates and privateers, hence the maze of streets and alleys in its historic center. Today, we can find several landscaped parks, art galleries, among other places of interest and inherent to a university and cultural city like Camaguey.

Breakfast and check-out. Before heading to the Holguin region, we will take a guided tour of a ballet school in Camaguey.

The province of Holguin has a lush nature, with long white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Holguin is also known for its 19th century architecture, and also for many other sites of historical interest.

Today the day is free in Holguin so we can explore the city and visit its main points of interest, such as museums and gardens, or walk through the "Loma de la Cruz" and enjoy beautiful views from its top.

Holguin also has numerous locations referring to its hero, Calixto Garcia, as well as many other places to listen to live music, as well as restaurants and bars for all tastes.

Dia 5 Holguin - Havana. Flight from Baracoa

Baracoa, the first settlement founded by the Spanish on the island of Cuba in 1512, was for three years the capital of the Kingdom of Spain on the island. Its privileged location allowed it to hold the pirate attacks, smugglers, and English raids until the mid-18th century, as evidenced by the three existing forts.

Baracoa has only been accessible by road since the 60s of the last century and since then we have seen an increase in tourism in the region, not only for the old part of the city but also for the beauty of the surroundings, whether for the surrounding mountains or the transparency of its waters and golden sandy beaches. This region is also known for its chocolate production. To the northeast we can also find the mountain "El Yunque", described by Christopher Columbus in his navigation diaries at the end of the 15th century.

Today we will fly to Havana to fly to Baracoa, where we will arrive mid-morning to spend two days exploring this beautiful region. There are numerous options for outdoor activities to explore the region and get to know its mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and beach and sea.

Around here, gastronomy is also delicious and based on fish and seafood. Don't miss out on the excellent chocolate that exists in the region, due to the numerous cocoa plantations.

After breakfast, we will check out and at the appointed time, leave Baracoa for Santiago de Cuba. The road that connects Baracoa to Santiago is spectacular! It traverses the mountainous region of eastern Cuba, also passing through a beautiful coastal section that surrounds the famous "Guantanamo Bay."

The city of Santiago is known as the "city of heroes" because of the important role it played in the episodes of the country's independence. Santiago rivals Havana in the areas of literary, political and musical production, and is also very rich in traditions, folklore and legends.

We will not fail to experience the "Noche Santiaguera", a unique music and dance experience between our group and the local population. Music and dance are in essence the true soul of Santiago, which is different from the rest of the country and may have its origin in the cultural heritage of French-speaking slaves from Haiti who in turn were influenced by Jamaica.

Dia 9 Santiago de Cuba - Bayamo via Sierra Maestra

Today we will head to Bayamo, a small, quiet town that will contrast greatly with the movement of Santiago de Cuba.

Bayamo, founded in 1513, was the second city established in Cuba, under the name Villa de San Salvador de Bayamo. During the 17th and 18th centuries, it reached its peak when the city's elite sent their children to study in other regions. Upon their return, these young individuals brought with them revolutionary and independence ideas. One notable example is Cespedes, who freed his slaves and formed a small army, leading Bayamo to isolate itself and initiate a war against Spain. Thus, Bayamo's history is marked by a three-day revolt, where the city refused to surrender to the Spanish and chose death instead.

The city of Bayamo is located at the foot of the Sierra Maestra, where we will take a hike in mountainous region, known for its natural beauty and also for being the place where Fidel Castro took refuge during his guerrilla attacks in the troubled times of the Cuban Revolution. High above the Sierra Maestra is the once secret hideout of Fidel and Che Guevara, used for the revolutionary leaders to plan their strikes and tactics during the years of the "Revolución."

If you don't want to do this hike, you can stay and relax in Santo Domingo, the starting point of the hike, which is located at the entrance to the Pico Turquino National Park and on the banks of the Yara River, where you can bathe and relax.

Dia 10 Bayamo - Trinidad

This morning we will proceed to Trinidad, classified as a World Heritage Site by Unesco, in 1988, and is undoubtedly the best preserved colonial city on the island of Cuba.

Exploring Trinidad is like a trip back in time: we'll get lost in the narrow streets, traversed by horse-drawn carriages and adorned with colonial facades. It's an experience you won't want to miss. There are plenty of highly interesting sites, such as museums located within old buildings.

With the magnificent sunset, comes the night and the city transforms into musicality and dance, so we recommend a visit to the "Casa de la Trova" to have fun dancing to the rhythm of salsa and Cuban music.

These days we will spend in Trinidad will be unforgettable as there is so much to see and enjoy, such as appreciating its churches and colonial architecture, the "Valle de los Ingenios" and Ancón beach, diving or snorkeling activities, bathing in waterfalls, or horseback riding, among other optional activities.

The ensuing battle between militia and revolutionary forces resulted in the first American defeat in Latin America.
The guide accompanying us will explain this episode in more detail and if the weather helps, we can stop for a swim in a place of great beauty and where there will be diving masks for rent at a very affordable price.
