This two-and-a-half-week itinerary goes beyond the Havana-Viñales-Trinidad touristic trinity to offer a more in-depth experience of this dynamic island.
Cuba is the Caribbean’s largest island and the diversity amongst its landscapes, towns and people is one of the most rewarding elements of travel in this vibrant country. This comprehensive itinerary combines nature, culture and remote beaches for a unique experience of Cuba, going beyond just the crowded must-sees of Havana and Trinidad. Spend time hidden away in the hills of Viñales enjoying the relaxed pace of rural life, before exploring the deserted cobblestoned streets of lesser-visited historic cities such as Camaguey and Santa Clara. Delve into the rugged tropical scenery of the Escambray and Sierra Maestra mountains, trekking to the hidden command posts where Cuba’s revolutionaries coordinated their battle plans and soaking up the verdant forest vistas. Finish your journey in the blissful seclusion of Baracoa. Facilities here certainly are not top-level, however for those seeking an immersive cultural experience of Cuba’s forgotten southeast coast, there is nowhere better.
