Cycle Cuba! CCC

Visiting: Cuba
Trip Duration 15 Days
 

Cycle Cuba

Cycle with us through Cuba as we tour the colonial capital of Havana, explore tropical forests and pedal past the striking limestone landscape of Viñales. In Viñales and historic Trinidad we go local and stay in privately run Casas Particulares. We also ride through the forests of Topes de Collantes Nature Reserve and along the Caribbean coast to Trinidad, stopping to swim in tropical pools and see the infamous Bay of Pigs.

Now is undoubtedly a fantastic time to visit Cuba to see and experience the island. Visiting Cuba is like stepping back in time as little has changed over the past 50 years. However, the recent relaxation of US sanctions is making Cuba an ever more popular destination placing increasing demands on the local tourist infrastructure. As a result, all tour operators to the island are experiencing occasions where previously confirmed accommodation is changed at short notice. To fully enjoy the Cuban experience you should travel with a willingness to expect the unexpected and, above all, an adventurous spirit. In our opinion go now and experience this unique destination before it changes.

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 277 km over eight days (an average of 35 km per day) with further optional rides available. The terrain is mainly on flat, tarmac roads, although the surface can be in poor condition in places. There are some uphill sections particularly in the Viñales and Soroa area. A support vehicle accompanies the rides throughout the tour except where not possible on days 3, 6, 10 and 13. Road conditions are ideal as Cuba has little traffic. We have graded the route as moderate.
