Day 2: Havana
Today morning, get ready to enjoy a private 2 to 3-hour tour of modern Havana, riding in a vintage American convertible.
Havana is often considered as being trapped in a time zone, thanks to the stylish retro cars roaming the streets and the pounding blend of colonial and art deco design. While we love the classic vibe of Havana, the city also offers so much more to explore in the here and now. Embark on a Havana city tour that will introduce you to Afro-Cuban religion, showing you the broken beauty that defines the city’s splendid, UNESCO-listed architecture, while also teaching you about what remains today of la Revolucion. Later finish it all with a mojito in La Habana Vieja.
Day 3: Cienfuegos
Located on the Caribbean coast of southern-central Cuba, Cienfuegos is an enthralling place to visit. With its vibrant facades, wide streets and quaint French colonial architecture, it rightfully deserves the Pearl of the South title.
Founded in 1819 by the French, Cienfuegos is one of the latest Cuban settlements and feels a lot different to the rest of the country. So make sure to include this scenic town in your must-see list when planning a Cuba tour.
