Overview

Book
Experience the splendour of Cuba – a cobblestoned Caribbean gem where the rum is plentiful, the smiles infectious and dancing is essential. Join our Hola Cuba adventure and wind your way from sultry Havana and its crumbling churches, through the valleys and farms of Pinar del Rio, and on to the Afro-inspired beats of Trinidad. Along the way we’ve assembled a cast of Cuban characters to give you a proper welcome – tobacco farmers, expert chefs, local artists, historians and salsa dancers that understand where Cuba came from, where the country sits now and, more importantly, where it’s going.

Highlights

    • Learn the local customs, folklore and beliefs behind Afro-Cuban religion as you’re welcomed into the homes of devoted residents on a colourful and unconventional Urban Adventure in Havana.
    • Relish a real garden-to-plate dining experience at a privately-owned organic eco-farm in picturesque Vinales – indulge in a variety of fresh produce all while gazing across sweeping views of the valley.
    • Receive a fascinating insight into the rise and fall of the charismatic and highly celebrated Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara at his mausoleum and museum in Santa Clara.
    • Experience Cuban hospitality and old-world charm in the coastal town of Trinidad. Wander through cobblestone streets among colourful colonial buildings and relax on the picturesque Playa Anca.
    • Support the Cuban community by staying at privately-owned guesthouses, dining at home-grown restaurants, and gaining insider knowledge into Cuba’s history, thanks to the expertise of local guides.

This was a wonderful experience!! Even though it was only 9 days, we did and learned so much. Mostly all meals are included, so budget for drinks for your meals and any shopping you would want do. Bring euros to exchange rather than US dollars. You get a better rate and avoid the 13% fees. Be ready to immerse yourself in Cuba!

Cuba far exceeded my expectations. The scenery was beautiful and the people friendly. The trip is busy and covers a lot is a short amount of time. It was great for me; but, is not for those who want to relax on vacation. Our leader Will and bus driver George made sure we had a safe, fun, and memorable experience. I can't wait to go back!

Fantastic, well organized trip. I saw various different locations (cities, towns and the mountains). I enjoyed the nature treks and the knowable local guides ( organic farmer, coffee farmer, cook and cigar maker, etc.) I liked seeing the colorful houses, horse pulled wagons and the well kept old American cars. So close to America yet so uniquely different.

In traveling to Cuba, it is highly recommended to bring basic essentials and share them with the people. US has sanctioned them to the point where daily items we take for granted are not everywhere...i.e. toilet paper, hands sanitizer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc.. I personally brought little packages of LEGOS, Baseballs, Dodger Hats, pistachios, cosmetics among other items. It was very fulfilling knowing I was able to give a little. Next time, I'll bring shoes and I want to start up a bicycle campaign to get the Cuban people more transportation. The Cuban people are warm, inviting and grateful for the tourism. They are self sustaining with the little they have.

The trip to Cuba was interesting. I expected Havana to be old and historic but I did not expect it to be so stuck in time. Travelers were welcomed by everyone and the people were friendly and accommodating.

Hola Cuba is a great way to learn about the history and culture of Cuba. It is a trip chock-full of activities and experiences. I don't think I could have travelled to as many places in Cuba as we went to without going on this trip.

It is a class act. I am not a person who travels with a tour group, this was my first experience. The trip was well organized, expectations clearly communicated by all on the trip, participants were considerate; on time. Transportation was very comfortable. Sites we saw along the way helped contribute to the overall flavor and culture of the country. Guide was incredibly knowledgeable.
