This private family holiday opens up a new range of activities and adventures in Cuba, a country where the friendly and welcoming people adore children. We take you beyond the resort hotels further into the heart of the country to discover the colonial splendour in many of the towns, spectacular countryside and its joyous Caribbean heart.
The trip is jam-packed with new experiences. You’ll explore by vintage car, jeep and bike. The trip begins in Havana, Cuba's inimitable capital, with its faded grandeur and pulsating rhythms. Impromptu concerts suddenly pop upon street corners and in cobbled squares. Visit forested Las Terrazas, an eco-experiment that really works, then head west to discover Viñales, a fertile valley with limestone mountains in the tobacco-growing region. Come face to face with hundreds of crocodiles on a wetland breeding farm. You’ll also discover two more of the country’s contrasting cities, Santa Clara and colonial Trinidad, each with a story to tell. There’s time to absorb it all and have fun on a sugar-white beach on one of the loveliest Caribbean cays, Santa María.
