Viva Cuba!

Viva Cuba! We started off in Style, followed by Active and Self-drive and the last one to be added was the Best.

I am of course referring to our latest destination Cuba. But that’s not it though, as there will be more to come in the next few weeks.

It’s amazing what this small colourful island has in store for travellers. From beautiful beaches and majestic mogotes (limestone outcrops) to revolutionary rebels (Ché and Castro); there’s enough to create intrepid itineraries for everyone.

How to get around

If you want an in-depth feel of the country, then I suggest you have a private driver, who’ll also be your personal guide and hopefully at the end of your trip, your friend. Our drivers will know where to stop, where to eat and will tell you all you need to know about their country.

For the independent travellers I can recommend our self-drive trips and sorry, but other than your pick-up from the airport and your Havana sightseeing tour, driving around in a classic American car will be off limits. If you have all the time in the world and are of the adventurous kind, you may be tempted in doing our trips by public transport.

What to visit

Then there are of course the beaches. Like any other company we can of course send you to Varadero, but why do you want to stay there if you have the island of Cayo Santa Maria or Baracoa on the south coast. Of course, it’s unavoidable to bring politics into this, but surely wouldn’t you be interested in visiting Comandancia de la Plata (Castro’s jungle hideaway) or Ché’s mausoleum, or what about a bit of history and culture in Trinidad, Cienfuegos, and Santiago de Cuba. And I haven’t even touched on the music, salsa, rum or cigars yet…

Where to stay

Let’s face it Cuba has lots to offer for young and old, whether you stay in a Casa Particulares (much like our B&B) or a historical building that has been converted into a Spanish colonial-style hotel. One thing is for sure Cuba rocks.
