Experience Cuba's vibrancy, culture and fascinating history
Cuba is an increasingly popular holiday destination, and it's easy to see why. The music, beaches, old cars, striking architecture and revolutionary history all combine to make the perfect cultural destination with warm hospitality and a lively atmosphere.
Our relaxed cycle route allows us to visit all the 'must see' places that Cuba is famous for: the crumbling colonial buildings of Havana, the music of Trinidad and the revolutionary history of Santiago. Away from the coastal resorts, visitors are very much in the minority, allowing us to observe the genuine warmth and hospitality displayed by the Cubans.
Passing through stunning countryside with a patchwork of plantations, fields and jungle, we are able to appreciate the traditional way of life that continues today.
After a day of cycling you'll no doubt welcome Cuba's speciality - a refreshing mojito!
What makes this trip responsible?
Over the years we have got to know a number of local families who provide water, fruit and refreshment stops en route. This is a good way of providing much needed money directly to local people, as well as fostering a greater understanding of rural life in Cuba. On this trip we also make an effort to support small, family run restaurants known as Paladares. This helps to support local people and gives an insight into the realities of Cuban life where food rationing is prevalent.
