Overview & Highlights

A leisurely outdoor holiday in Cuba: cycle round Havana, hike in the Escambray mountains and around Las Terrazas, kayak to a colonial fort and bike through exquisite Vinales valley.

  • Havana: Private guided cycling tour of the old city
  • Trinidad: Hiking in Topes de Collantes
  • Cienfuegos: Shared kayaking adventure to Jagua Fortress
  • La Terrazas: Private guided walk to Taburete hill and coffee plantations
  • Viñales: Private guided cycling tour of the countryside

Most activities in Cuba are done at a slow pace: there aren’t many cars on the road; cycling and walking are the principal ways of getting around for the patient, laid-back population. This private holiday takes you to the highlights of the scenic western half of the island, which you will be exploring at a similar leisurely speed. The activities are gentle, by no means hard-core, but you'll feel you've had some exercise come the evening. Stay at small hotels with an authentic Cuban feel.

Cuba is unique and inspiring; a socialist stronghold, with a rebellious history, colonial splendour in many of the towns, spectacular countryside and a Caribbean heart. Its vibrancy and friendly people will make a lasting impression.  Cycle round Havana’s historic centre; then travel by bus to colonial Trinidad for some hill-walking among cool mountain pines. Kayak through tranquil Cuenfuegos Bay to survey the monumental Spanish-built Jagua Fortress. More walks await you at Las Terrazas, where sunny slopes are blanketed in coffee plantations. Hop back on a bike to cycle through the magical limestone country of the fertile Viñales valley.

Easter Island extension should be recommended to all. it was magical. The moai were amazing. Torres del Paine was also awe inspiring.
Excellent as with the trip we did with you to Mexico last year. We have been to many countries in Latin America but only this trip and Mexico with JLA. I wish we had discovered JLA before.
