On your arrival in Havana, we will greet you at the Havana's Jose Marti International Airport. We will transfer you to your home in Havana where you will get an authentic Cuban experience followed by an welcome meeting. It is essential to note that Cuba tends to be pretty different from other areas of the world you may have traveled in. Buildings and infrastructure are usually old and may not have been maintained to the highest standard. Elevators, internet, and A/C often out of work, things proceed very slowly and water pressure and hot water can be insufficient. Cuba is an excellent place to visit but to fully enjoy and relax, western expectations should be left at home and your sense of adventure should be your companion.
Today we will have a 4 hours journey to Vinales in a private car. Vinales is in the Pinar del Rio province and situated in a lush valley surrounded by the unusual mogotes, or limestone pincushion hills. Arguably one of the most beautiful natural areas in Cuba, we have many occasions here to explore the area, whether it be hiking or simply sitting back and enjoying the scenery. The ideal way to begin the day here is with the sunrise. There is something so pretty and calm about a sunrise, viewing nature stir from sleep while most people are still snoozing. In Vinales, there is an excellent spot to view the day begin. Walk down the main road that goes through the town in a south-westerly direction, and take a left turn to follow it up and away from the houses towards Hotel Los Jazmines. It’s about 3.5km to the viewpoint, so give yourself an hour. It’s true, that early start is so worth it. The hotel, along with some small restaurants on both side, is rested in a perfect position to watch the mist burn off the valley and uncover a lush green scene. You could view for miles.
Take a day excursion to charming Cayo Levisa, 3km of white sand on an island only approachable by boat. It is an excellent spot for snorkeling or just relax on the beach.
Today we will travel to Playa Larga. Halt for some time at the Bay of Pigs en route for a swim in the brilliant blue water, and opt to go snorkeling.
In the morning we will go for a 2 hours travel to Trinidad. Trinidad is a paradise for anyone interested in outdoor activities. If a beach seems like what you're looking for, try snorkeling or diving in nearby Playa Ancon, just 12 km from town. Also, enjoy a salsa lesson at a local center.
Enjoy a free day to explore the area. Enjoy traveling to beautiful unspoiled beaches
Stay by Santa Clara en route to Havana and explore important historical sites, including the great Che monument. Explore Old Havana on a short walking tour with the guide. Santa Clara is Cuba's most advanced city and not just because of its historical fascination with Argentine doctor turned Guerrillero Che Guevara. Smack bang in the geographic center of Cuba, this is a city of new trends and voracious creativity, where an excited youth culture has been testing the limits of Cuba’s censorship police for years. Unique Santa Clara offers Cuba’s only official drag show, a graphic artists' organization that produces satirical political cartoons, and the famous rock festival in the country: Ciudad Metal. The city’s enthusiastic personality has been developed over time by the presence of the nation’s most renowned university outside Havana, and a long relationship with Che Guevara, whose liberation of Santa Clara in December 1958 indicated the end of the Batista regime.
Today is the last day of your Latin America journey. We will transfer you to the airport for your flight back home.
