Description of Small group holiday in Cuba

This small group holiday in Cuba will take you from the buzzing capital Havana all the way to the far east of the island, before looping back again, discovering salsa beats, colonial towns, revolutionary history and pristine Caribbean beaches. You’ll be travelling with a group of no more than 12 people in total, with a tour leader throughout, in a private vehicle. This is a great way to see several of Cuba’s key cities, plus enjoy lots of optional activities, in just a 10 day holiday.

In Havana, a guided walking tour will help you get to grips with this fascinating city and discover its history and old-world charm. You can pay your respects to Cuba’s revolutionary leader, Che Guevara, at his mausoleum and museum in Santa Clara. Discover the Afro-Cuban heritage in Santiago de Cuba, home to a vibrant music scene – a three hour walking tour and a salsa lesson are included here. You can also learn a little Spanish, too, with a few informal lessons from your group leader dotted through the trip.

In Camaguey, take a bicycle taxi city tour to explore the city’s winding streets and discover its well preserved colonial architecture. Then make the most of more than two free days in Trinidad, enjoying a range of fun options, from trekking to El Nicho Waterfall to lazing on the beach before heading to a live music venue. You’ll be staying in Casas Particulares throughout, which are Cuba’s answer to B&Bs, and this is a great way to meet and chat with local people.

Responsible tourism: Small group holiday in Cuba

Environment

Our trips are known for being small group tours and in Cuba our maximum group size is 12 people. This not only allows our travellers to have a more authentic and intimate experience, but also means we’re able to minimise the impact we have on the local environment and the communities we visit. We always ensure that the transportation we use is of an appropriate size, meaning no 12-seater vehicles if only four people are travelling. Where possible we try to do without motorised transport altogether as with our bicycle taxi tour through Camaguey.

Our small group sizes also make it possible to stay in family-run guesthouses, which are a lot more environmentally-friendly than the bigger hotel chains. Cuban guesthouses or casa particulares are especially charming and contribute significantly to travellers’ overall experience of the country. Not to mention, they help to create jobs for the Cuban people and enable us to directly invest in the local economy.

One of the biggest problems Cuba faces is the inadequate disposal of waste and the government has now invested in a program to raise environmental awareness amongst the population. To contribute towards these efforts, we avoid using single-use plastic bottles and opt for refillable ones instead. During the initial welcome meeting, our guides will discuss this issue with the group making them conscious of the situation as early on as possible.

Community

All on-the-ground staff helping us to deliver this trip are Cuban and share our commitment to responsible travel. They’re also trained in our global responsible travel policies and practices. Plus, we use a range of other local suppliers for different activities throughout this itinerary too.
Promoting intercultural exchanges between travellers and local people is really important to us. We’re committed to broadening our travellers’ understanding of their destination and these sorts of interactions can really assist in that. By coming into direct contact with local Cubans, through activities such as salsa lessons, our travellers feel like more than just visitors here. Our guided tours of Havana, Trinidad and Santiago de Cuba also focus not only on exploring these beautiful places but giving a real insight into Cuban life too.
We also think it’s essential to gain an insight into the history of Cuba. Whilst our local guides will be a fountain of knowledge on this, visits to the Che Guevara Mausoleum and Museum in Santa Clara will help our travellers to gain a more in-depth understanding of why Cuba is the way it is today.
