If you only intend to visit this intriguing island once then you should go on our Best of Cuba trip, which combines history, with culture and politics.
During this tailor-made trip, you'll stay in a combination of hotels and Casas Particulares (B&B). If it's too long or even too short, then we can change it to suit all your requirements.
You’ll be going on a proper road trip, as this is the ultimate self-drive holiday where you will be circumnavigating the whole island.
The route takes you from Havana to the eastern region of Viñales with its Mogotes (limestone rock formations) and the Las Terrazas eco-village, along the Bay of Pigs to Cienfuegos.
You can continue along the coastal road to Trinidad or drive through the Tropes del Collante mountain range and visit the el Nicho waterfalls. Drive further south and you’ll end up in one of Cuba’s oldest settlements Camagüey. From here it’s a long drive to Villa Santo Domingo in the Sierra Maestra mountain range, close to Fidel Castro’s base during the Cuban revolution.
Leaving the mountains behind, you’ll head for Cuba’s second-largest city Santiago de Cuba. Continue along the southern coast and you’ll enter the Guantanamo region, which is well-known for all the wrong reasons. From Baracoa, you head north again and drive via Gibara, Ciego de Avila and Remedios back to Havana.
