If you are adventurous in spirit, the most rewarding way to travel around Cuba is to drive your own hire-car. Take your friends or your family 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 takes you not only to Cuba’s highlights but also to areas less visited by tourists in the eastern half of the country. 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.
