What better way to round offa trip to Cuba than by relaxing for 2 days on the beach? We’ve added a beach extension onto our 3 shortest (8 day) trips, encompassing cycling, walking and discovery.
Whether you choose our cycling, walking or discovery departures, you’ll enjoy two extra days on the beach near Playa Jibacoa, at an all-inclusive 4* resort hotel. With an outlook over the golden sands of Playa Arroyo Bermejo, you’ll be ideally situated for a bit of sun and relaxation after your busy tour!
Being an island, Cuba has hundreds of miles of coastline, so it was really tough to narrow down our options to Playa Jibacoa. Many people will have heard of the busy resort town of Varadero, but we felt that the natural setting and relaxed atmosphere of Jibacoa was more appealing to travellers wanting something a bit different, and its proximity to Havana (only 1 hour away) makes it the perfect place to extend your stay.
The best thing about Jibacoa is its impressive coral reef located just a few metres from parts of the shoreline, giving you the opportunity to do some great snorkelling right off the beach. Behind the hotel are lush hills, with easily followed trails for keen hikers after some spectacular views over the Caribbean. West of Playa Arroyo Bermejo you have 4km of beach, which means that it’s a great place for a coastal walk, and as all beaches in Cuba are public you’re guaranteed to come across locals from the surrounding villages enjoying a swim.
