Western Cuba Discovery Adventure

On this exciting introduction to Cuba, we explore the captivating capital of Havana and wander through the twisting alleyways of colonial Trinidad, where we stay in privately run casas particulares. Along the way, we absorb the country's lively culture by learning salsa and how to make Cuban cocktails. We also discover Cuba's spectacular natural beauty, taking in pristine beaches, unspoilt forests and the dramatic landscape of Vinales. Learning about Cuba's fascinating history, we visit Che Guevara's Mausoleum and the infamous Bay of Pigs.
