Explore and Relax in Colonial Cuba and the Mexican Riviera

14 days from £2138pp

Private Journey

Cuba’s unique Latin American beat sets it apart from all the other islands of the Caribbean.  But it lies just a short flight from the coast of the Mayan Riviera on Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. We’ve devised a holiday which combines exploration of Cuba’s colonial heritage with the barefoot chic of one of Mexico’s finest beaches.

You will explore old Havana’s evocative historic quarters from a seat of one of the city’s many vintage cars. American vehicles from the 1950s have been beautifully preserved and maintained and now you can enjoy the experience of gliding through the streets of the old quarter in one of them. Head on to discover Trinidad, the most exquisite of Cuba’s colonial cities, beautifully conserved and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Fly on to Cancún on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. A two hour drive along Mexico's Riviera away from busy Cancun lies laid-back Tulum with its stunning, unspoiled beaches and low key beach bars and restaurants where the fish is fresh and the dress code relaxed.
