Overview

Book
The largest of the Caribbean islands, Cuba is a uniquely fascinating adventure travel destination that really lends itself to exploration by bike. The island came under communist rule, headed by Fidel Castro, in 1959 and effectively stepped aside from the world of economic development and consumerism. Sixty years later, Cuba is still defined by its classic American cars, crumbling Spanish Colonial architecture, sun-kissed tobacco fields, endless white beaches and the ever-present iconography of Che Guevara.

One of the best ways to experience its special magic is to travel by bicycle between the countrys highlights and this new holiday allows you to do just that. A tour by bike of Havanas faded elegance is a great way to start, before we head out to Vinales, home to Cubas most beautiful landscapes; striking limestone outcrops known as mogotes rising above emerald-green farmland. A mix of superb and never-too-challenging cycle rides on quiet backroads then takes us east to Trinidad where we have a day off the bikes to explore amongst its narrow streets and grand colonial buildings. Cienfuegos is our next stop, with its south coast location and malecon promenade, before we cross the island on our bikes to the beach resort of Playa Jibacoa for the chance of a final swim before returning to Havana. Known for its cigars, baseball, music and dance and for its beautiful people, Cuba is famously laid-back and this taste of the country on 2-wheels is hard to beat.
