Small Group Tour

Havana • Soroa • Las Terrazas • Viñales • Cayo Jutias

Travel to Cuba for a relaxing week-long adventure exploring its natural beauty and colonial elegance. The unusual history and cultural atmosphere of this rhythmic Caribbean island is unique and you’re sure to be charmed by the friendly locals and vibrant nightlife as you soak up the spirit of this beautiful country.

Day 1: Havana

 Upon arrival in Cuba’s capital, a complimentary transfer will take you to your guesthouse. This evening join your group leader and fellow travellers for a welcome meeting followed by an evening at leisure to soak up the culture, tastes and sounds on Havana. (B)

Day 2: Havana - Soroa

Head to the Callejon de Hamel, a lively street and centre of Afro-Cuban culture, located in Havana’s working class Cayo Hueso quarter. Next, visit Jaimanitas, a neighbourhood where artist Jose Fuster has rebuilt and decorated over 80 houses with ornate murals and domes. Continue to the tiny mountain resort of Soroa in the heavily forested Sierra del Rosario. Make a stop for lunch and a tour of an orchid garden, which boasts 700 species of orchid. (B)

Day 3: Las Terrazas

Visit the nearby community of Las Terrazas, stopping at the Finca de Plantas Medicinales to learn all about local herbs and their medicinal properties. After, enjoy a relaxing afternoon exploring the lush forest.

Day 4: Soroa - Viñales

Today drive the short distance to the small rural town of Viñales. Surrounded by limestone cliffs, the scenery in this area is some of the most picturesque in Cuba. Join your group leader for a short orientation walk of the town followed by an afternoon and evening at leisure. (B)

Day 5: Viñales

See Viñales during a half-day walking tour, after which, you will visit a local farm and experience first-hand the ‘Guajiros’ way of life as you take part in optional farm activities such as toasting and grinding coffee or harvesting yucca, corn or tobacco. In the evening, enjoy an informal salsa lesson and dinner at a local eco-farm. (BD)

Day 6: Cayo Jutias

It’s an early start in the morning for your trip to Cayo Jutias, a tiny mangrove-covered key situated approximately 65kms northwest of Viñales. Your destination is one of the area’s most ‘undiscovered’ stretches of beach at the key’s northern tip. Enjoy a day soaking up the sun on the sandy shore.

Day 7: Viñales - Havana

Travel back to Havana for your final night in Cuba. Spend your last afternoon of the trip enjoying a guided tour around Old Havana. This well-preserved part of the city is a designated World Heritage site. The streets are lined with colonial architecture, 16th Century fortresses and countless churches. Spend the evening at your leisure enjoying the city’s varied and lively nightlife. (B)

Day 8: Depart Havana

The tour ends with an independent transfer (own expense) to the airport.
