Welcome to Cuba

Experience Cuba in all its beautiful forms with this varied journey through city and coast. Sink into the history of Havana, walk on the soft sands of Varadero, soak up the colourful town of Trinidad and discover that Cuba is much more than its delicious rum and traditional Cuban cigars. Relatively untouched by the modern world, a trip to Cuba is a step back in time; from the classic 1950s cars rolling along the streets to the ornate buildings of Old Havana, this country will leave you wanting more. Join Traveleyes on this journey through Cuba and we’ll let you decide whether it’s the history or gorgeous coastline that makes Cuba a must-see destination.

Tour Highlights

  • Relax on the sandy white beaches of Varadero, a popular coastal resort in Cuba
  • Visit a rum museum and cigar factory on a walking tour of historic Havana
  • Discover the eclectic palaces and colonial-era buildings in Cienfuegos, Cuba’s “Pearl of the South”

Once we’ve landed in Havana, we’ll transfer to the Hotel Inglaterra where we’ll have dinner and rest for the next day.

Dinner included. Overnight in Havana.

Friday 3rd May

Today begins with a sightseeing tour around the historic old quarter of this wonderful city. San Cristobal de la Habana, founded in 1519, is a multi-layered treasure trove of historic significance. We wander through San Francisco de Asis Square, the Old Square, and the Arms Square, winding our way to Cathedral Square and to the Palace of Cuban Arts and Crafts, where many artefacts of Cuba’s cultural history begin to unravel their fascinating stories of human existence and historic strife. As part of the tour we will enjoy a traditional Cuban lunch.

Breakfast and lunch included. Overnight in Havana.

Saturday 4th May

Today you may wish to join us on a visit to a local blind school for a cultural exchange. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure in Havana. One highly recommended option is taking a stroll to the end of Calle Obispo to Floriditas bar. Perch in the same spot along the bar as Ernest Hemingway once did, enjoying one of their refreshing and delicious daiquiris.

Breakfast included. Overnight in Havana.

Sunday 5th May

A free day to relax, wander and develop your own must-see list as you immerse yourself in the exotic sights, sounds and rhythms of Havana.

Breakfast included. Overnight in Havana.

Monday 6th May

En route to Trinidad we stop off at the quaint city of Cienfuegos for an afternoon tour. This includes a varied programme of visits to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, the Bulevar (Boulevard) of Cienfuegos, the Terry Theatre (founded in 1890 and now a national monument) and the Bay of Cienfuegos. From Cienfuegos we continue our journey to Trinidad City.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Trinidad.

Tuesday 7th May

Today, we take a tour of the charming city of Trinidad and have an opportunity to admire the beautiful colonial architecture that has remained unchanged for centuries. We’ll also visit a local museum and enjoy a welcome drink in the La Canchanchara bar. This house of hospitality is named after the famous concoction made from raw rum, water and honey. After we’ve quenched our thirst, we can enjoy a lovely local lunch in a traditional Cuban restaurant.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Trinidad.

Wednesday 8th May

Today is free for you to relax, explore and enjoy the many facilities in our all-inclusive resort. Alternatively, wander the city’s historic centre or head out to a colonial plantation in the nearby countryside where sugar cane has been grown for centuries.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Trinidad.

Thursday 9th May

Today’s tour of Santa Clara provides the opportunity to visit the Museum of Che Guevara. It was to him and his militia that the former Cuban dictator Batista famously surrendered at the very climax of the Cuban Revolution. Displayed here is the very same armoured train which Guevara’s troops derailed during that pivotal moment of history. The train wreckage was subsequently preserved and declared a national monument. After pausing to relive this colourful episode, we continue our journey to Varadero, not before enjoying lunch in a local restaurant.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Varadero.

Friday 10th May

Varadero has one of the finest beaches in the entire Caribbean. It offers 12 and a half miles of perfect white sand, which sweeps down to meet warm, lapping, turquoise sea water.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Varadero.

Saturday 11th May

Today offers some free time to relax and to explore Varadero at leisure, and a chance to discover the true meaning of the expression ‘beach culture’. This evening, join us for a farewell get-together as we enjoy live Cuban music and relive the highlights of our fantastic Caribbean adventure.
