Colonial Cuba Multi Centre Holiday

13 days from £1539 per person

Cuba is the perfect destination if you are in search of a holiday with a time-worn twist. Discover the fascinating history of this communist country as you visit colonial heritage, revolutionary tributes and character-filled cobbled streets. You’ll start your colonial journey of Cuba by experiencing the colourful plazas and energetic atmosphere of Havana as you whizz around the city in a classic car. Delve into the rural countryside of Vinales where you’ll cycle past limestone peaks and explore the dramatic red-earth tobacco fields. Amble past waterfalls and visit derelict coffee plantations in the eco village of Las Terrazas before moving on to the French colonial harbour town, Cienfuegos. In Trinidad the laid-back lifestyle and lively music halls await you - it’s the perfect spot to let your hair down and loosen your hips as you get into the rhythm of the Caribbean beats!

Route: Havana – Las Terrazas – Vinales – Cienfuegos – Trinidad – Havana
