Self-drive Cuba: Best of the west

13 days from £1209pp
 

Private Journey

 

If you are adventurous in spirit, the most rewarding way to travel around Cuba is to drive your own hire-car. Take your family - children, parents or other relatives - and you will relish the flexibility and the ability to choose how fast and how far you travel before stopping to enjoy a sight or chat to the locals. This two-week private tour of Cuba’s highlights is an explorer’s delight. Your hotels are all pre-booked for you. Walk round Havana’s historic centre; drive through limestone landscapes in the Viñales valley and forests around Las Terrazas. Move on to Cuba’s historic cities, Cienfuegos and colonial gem Trinidad.
