Highlights of Cuba By Bicycle CSC

Visiting: Cuba
Trip Duration 8 Days
 

Highlights Of Cuba By Bicycle

Experience cycling on quiet roads through the verdant countryside and along the stunning coastlines of Cuba. En route we explore the colonial towns of Cienfuegos, Sancti Spiritus, Remedios and Trinidad - where we experience Cuban hospitality in Casas Particulares. We also visit the historic Bay of Pigs, the monument to Che Guevara in Santa Clara and the vibrant capital Havana.

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.
