Description of Mexico & Cuba Tour

Take your time to really get under the skin of Latin America as you experience the very best of two of the region's cultural heavyweights on a tour of Cuba and Mexico.

A winning combination of historical settings, sun-drenched beaches and cultural encounters make this three week tour of fun really something to write home about with Mexico City, Oaxaca and Palenque all blending into one amazing Mexico tour prior to heading to the highlights of Cuba.

Traditional market places, iconic pyramids and temples, plus the downright hedonistic ambience of Playa del Carmen help to create a very well-balanced itinerary with a flight to Cuba providing an efficient means of swapping locations as you get to compare and contrast one Latin American country from the next.

Havana has it all with fading façades and classic cars creating a film-set type feel as you discover Cuba's revolutionary past and travel to beach settings such as Trinidad to ensure you get to experience the very best of both worlds.

This Mexico and Cuba tour gives you every chance to immerse yourself in the essence of Latin America with a fantastic blend of landscapes, cultural sites and fun in the sun ensuring you'll never look at this part of the world in quite the same way, ever again.

Important to note for 2017:

From the 1st February 2017 this Cuba and Mexico tour itinerary will change as per below. These amends have come about as a result of traveller feedback and our desire to offer travellers the best experience possible over the course of three weeks.

We will now stop in Puebla on the journey to Oaxaca.

The journey from Oaxaca to San Cristobal de las Casas will now be taken on an overnight bus. This means that we will no longer be spending the night in Tehuantepec or Campeche.

Thanks to the itinerary changes mentioned above we will now have more time in Mexico City, Oaxaca and Playa del Carmen meaning the final schedule will be as follows:

Days one and two: Mexico City
Day three: Mexico City to Teotihuacan
Day four: Puebla to Oaxaca
Days five and six: Oaxaca
Days seven and eight: San Cristobal de las Casas
Day nine: Palenque
Day ten: Palenque and Merida
Day eleven: Merida
Day twelve: Chichen Itza and Playa del Carmen
Day thirteen: Playa del Carmen
Day fourteen: Tulum and Playa del Carmen
Day fifteen: Playa del Carmen
The remainder of this 22 day Mexico and Cuba tour itinerary will be left unchanged.

Mexico & Cuba Tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

Travel with us from Mexico City to Havana and you will experience a Central American holiday that will engage you in a region rich in culture and history, dotted with ancient temples, stunning landscapes and friendly locals. This holiday with will enliven your senses and engage your mind, while at the same time journeying in a manner that minimises our cultural and environmental impact on tour whilst maximising the economic benefits.

We support small, local business by using family run restaurants offering fantastic regional specialities; we stay in comfortable local hotels and guesthouses, including using homestay accommodation for the four nights we spend in Vinales and in colonial Trinidad. This gives travellers a genuine insight into day to day Cuban life in addition to providing an additional regular income for the home owners.

Operated in close collaboration with our partners based in Mexico and in Cuba, your support team on the ground will all be locals, recruited from the regions through which we are travelling; from the drivers to the specialist site guides that will be used to explore the sites of Teotihuacan, Monte Alban and Chichen Itza. Your group leaders will be locals; they will be English speaking and trained to our own high standards. On this tour, groups will have two different leaders, one during the Mexico leg and the second joining you in Cuba. Working in this way not only provides stable long term employment opportunities within Central America, but we believe gives our travellers the best holiday experience possible. The saying goes ‘a little local knowledge goes a long way’ and we believe when travelling this is invaluable.

Throughout your trip you will be encouraged to join us in ensuring your holiday is as environmentally responsible as possible. Whether exploring the jungle shrouded Mayan sites of Mexico or discovering Cuba’s tobacco region on foot, we ask that you treat the landscape with respect, sticking to marked paths and trails, and disposing of rubbish appropriately. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with this throughout the trip, recycling where ever possible.

For those opting to try snorkelling in Trinidad, we ensure that groups are fully briefed before entering the water on the dos and don’ts of this activity. We want to ensure that delicate environments are preserved for the creatures who call them home, as well as for the traveller who will come after you.

When travelling through hot, often humid regions, hydration is important and we encourage all of our travellers to use refillable water bottles alongside available methods of purification rather than purchasing regular small supplies of bottled water. Even buying a larger bottle and decanting it between group members is preferable to purchasing copious smaller bottles.

The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in the bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. A large proportion of the bottles then end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments and so we aim to keep their use to a minimum on our trips.
