Overview & Highlights

Relish the flexibility and decide how quickly you travel in a self-drive hire car, visiting less-visited but historically significant eastern side of Cuba. Hotels and some city tours are pre-booked.

  • Guided walking tour of Old Havana
  • Guided walking tour of colonial Trinidad
  • Guided walking tour of Camaguey
  • Guided panoramic tour of Santiago

This holiday takes you not only to Cuba’s highlights but also to areas less visited by tourists in the eastern half of the country. If you are adventurous in spirit, the most rewarding way to travel around Cuba is to drive your own hire-car. 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. Your hotels are all pre-booked for you.

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. Walk round Havana’s historic centre; then drive on to eastern region of the country and back, visiting Cuba’s other historic cities: Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Sancti Spíritus, Camagüey, Santiago and Santa Clara. Drive through the wild mountains of Sierra Maestra, Castro’s pre-revolution hiding place, and continue to the Caribbean coast, basing yourself at the unassuming little fishing port Gibara to explore the attractive wooded bays and glittering beaches of the unspoilt northeastern littoral.
