Cuba - solo but definitely not alone

Yvonne Ramsey works in Explore's Operations team and recently travelled on our Cuba Solo Adventure.

Cocktail classesThis was not my first experience of Cuba however it was my first experience of an Explore trip. Travelling on my own I thought the solo option would be interesting as I'd be travelling with a whole group of individual travellers. I had a fantastic group of 15, all except one travelling for the first time with Explore. We broke the ice in style on the first night with a fantastic dinner in a local palada, followed by making - and drinking - our own cocktails.cubasalsalesson

We spent the first three nights of the tour in Havana, a city full of contrasts with modern and old, from the old Cadillacs driving along the Malecon to the modern Mercedes taxis. As well as the great city tour we experienced some great group activities such as salsa and the cocktail making classes – a lesson I have put into practice here at home.

We headed to the west of the island for a walk in Vinales country, a land of limestone outcrops and tobacco farms. Here we took a walk through the farms, getting an opportunity to get to know the locals and their produce by spending some time with the farmers, tasting some of the coffee and sharing a cigar.

Relaxing aboard the catamaran - despite the rain!

It was then time to head to the southern coast via the Bay of Pigs down to where we spend the next three nights in the tranquil colonial gem of Trinidad. Trinidad gave us time to relax and wander the cobbled streets looking for bargains at the local markets. We spent some leisurely time on a day out on a catamaran to Cayo Blanco where even in the pouring rain we had a fantastic time snorkelling and eating Paella!

Overall, I'd say the tour leader Jose Luis was great helping us all get the most of the Cuban experience - the eating, drinking and dancing… This holiday was a fantastic experience in fantastic company. I would highly recommend this as a great introduction to Cuba.
