Don’t go on a cycling holiday in Cuba if…
… you’re not happy in tropical weather. Midwinter offers cooler, drier air, but this is still the Caribbean – and cycling is sure to keep you warm.
… you’re a diehard foodie. Cuban cuisine gets a bad rap - and it's certainly not a destination you'd choose because of its food. Hotel buffets score lowest for inedible cuisine, closely followed by state-owned restaurants. However, the homecooked casa meals are delicious - with fresh seafood, black beans and tropical fruit - as are the locally-owned paladar restaurants. All the more reason to keep it small, responsible and local!
… you’re racing to the finishing line. A Cuba cycling holiday is just as cultural as any other trip here – it’s just that you’re cycling from highlight to highlight instead of driving. So take your time, stop to chat, keep your camera close by and enjoy the ride.
