Self-drive eastern Cuba: Havana to the Sierra Maestra

12 days from £1,929pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 

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 Cuba’s other historic cities, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Sancti Spíritus and Camagüey. Visit Bayamo and hike in the Sierra Maestra, Castro’s pre-revolution hiding place. Finally, visit Cuba’s second city, Santiago, with a very different vibe from Havana.
