Description of Cuba holiday, small group

This 15 day Cuba holiday, small group, takes you from Havana in the west to Baracoa in the east, giving a fantastic overview of this fascinating island. Iconic cars, fat cigars, rum, salsa and the Revolution – there is so much to see, do and learn about in Cuba.

This small group tour begins in the charming and historic capital, Havana, where a guided walking tour will introduce you to the faded beauty of the Old Town. Then you'll make your way east along the south coast of Cuba. Take a bicycle-taxi tour of the colonial city of Camaguey, and enjoy two days in Trinidad, relaxing on the Caribbean beaches, cycling through sugar plantations or learning Spanish. Delve into 20th century history at the Bay of Pigs, learn about the Revolution and visit Che’s Mausoleum, see the beautiful mountains that surround Baracoa and dust off your salsa moves with a relaxed dance lesson in steaming Santiago de Cuba, a city with Afro-Cuban roots and a lively music scene. You’ll be staying in locally owned and run Casas Particulares throughout, which is a lovely way to meet local people and learn about life in Cuba.

The most memorable part of the holiday was the friendliness and openness of the people - in the street as well as ones we met more formally through homestays and tours. The music in every bar - some cheesy - some excellent. Read full review

We had an excellent time and made some good friends. The leader was very good and did her best to advise, inform and enthuse us at every turn. She was honest, open and did her best to pass on her enthusiasm for her country, while being prepared to discuss its idiosyncrasies in an informative and thoughtful way. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We just can't get enough of the Amazon, not only as a jaw-dropping travel destination but also as a global treasure and this trip will help to ensure that the incredibly Amazon Rainforest is here for us to enjoy for generations to come! Our Amazon Fund will help support on the ground projects by the Foundation's long time partners Greenpeace and WWF. By booking your Latin American adventure with us you're helping us work towards a sustainable future for the Amazon.

People

This trip gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the culture and vibrant history of Latin America. There are numerous chances for local interaction as we cover so much ground using all means of public transport. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from a friendly local who strikes up a conversation during your journey.

Your leader and the occasional local guide will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some Spanish at the same time). All travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible.

Local guides are employed to help explain as much as possible about the cultural differences and the historically significant places that we visit. This also allows us to appreciate the importance of preserving and respecting these sites and to help us minimise the impact of our visits.

There are plenty of opportunities to support local merchants in the markets and stalls that we pass along the way. We can purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans and learn more about the importance of preserving these crafts.
