Active Cuba: Hike, cycle and salsa

16 days from £2,934pp
 

Private Journey

 
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 all over the island but you will be exploring at a similar leisurely speed.    

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 pines. Cycle through the limestone country of the fertile Viñales valley; go walking in the historic city of Santiago. Hike in the Sierra Maestra, Castro’s pre-revolution hiding place. Finally, finish off your adventurous holiday at remote Baracoa climbing a tabletop mountain and relaxing on the beach.
