Revolutionary Trails of Cuba CU

Visiting: Cuba
Trip Duration 15 Days
 

Walking In Cuba

Join us in Cuba as we uncover the island's revolutionary history. We explore colonial cities including Havana and Trinidad. We discover Fidel Castro's headquarters in the Sierra Maestra Mountains and visit Che Guevara's mausoleum in Santa Clara. We swim under waterfalls, climb forest trails and trek to the summit of Pico Turquino - Cuba's highest peak.

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.

Tour Highlights

  • Havana - Experience the faded colonial splendour and vibrancy of Cuba's capital
