Tour Overview

A journey into the Western provinces of Cuba offers a taste of both Cuba's rural and urban life with some spectacular scenery along the way. We visit some community art projects in Havana and then the mountain communities of Las Terrazas and Soroa, that are surrounded by some of Cuba's lush forest. Viñales offers a charming village atmosphere, and some stunning mountainous scenery, sprawling tobacco fields and friendly locals. We include a visit to a tobacco farmer's house and learn how to roll the perfect Cuban cigar. There are also opportunities to experience Cuba's famous white sand beaches of Cayo Levisa and Cayo Jutias near to Vinales.

Highlights

Location:

  Havana


Accommodation:

  You will be staying at a casa particular a licensed and professionally run guesthouse that has been vetted for cleanliness and comfort


Meals Included:

  No Meals


Arrive in Havana at any time. Today is the arrival day of the tour so there are no planned activities and you can check into the arrival guesthouse and relax or go and explore the city. One of the oldest cities in the Western Hemisphere, Havana was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Adventure among the splendorous crumbling architecture of the streets of Central and Old Havana, and sit on the famous sea wall (El Malecon) to take in the view and some fresh air, and to socialize with the colourful and friendly 'Habaneros'.

icon Day 2 : Soroa via Jaimanitas & Las Terrazas
Location:

  Soroa


Accommodation:

  You will be staying at a casa particular a licensed and professionally run guesthouse that has been vetted for cleanliness and comfort


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


On the way to Soroa we stop by at a couple of street art projects as well as the eco-community of Las Terrazas. The first street art project is the Callejon de Hammel where local resident Salvador Gonzáles Escalona has decorated, and painted in vibrant colours, a pedestrian alleyway with scrap objects like bathtubs, hand pumps, and pin wheels, with many works being dedicated to various Afro-Cuban deities. It has now become a cultural focal point with workshops for young Cuban children to learn painting.

Then we visit the fishing village of Jaimanitas and the home of the famous artist Jose Fuster. Fuster has made his entire home, and much of the surrounding neighbourhood, into an artwork using tiles in mosaic forms. Now referred to as Fusterlandia, it is a unique work of public art with over 80 houses decorated with ornate murals and domes to suit the personality of each of Fuster's neighbours. He has built a chess park with giant boards and tables, a theatre, and public swimming pools. Nowadays, Fuster’s art is a cherished part of Cuban culture and joins the rank of other public artworks such as that of Gaudi in Barcelona or that of Brâncuși in the Romanian city of Targu Jiu.

About lunch time we reach the mountain community of Las Terrazas which was built as a reforestation project in the 1960s and is now a Unesco Biosphere Reserve. You can take a walk around the town to meet the friendly locals. In Las Terrazas there are also art, woodwork and pottery studios that are open to the public.

We eventually arrive to the mountain resort town of Soroa where we stay in the homes of the local humble residents. There are quite a few attractions around this heavily forested area including a short trek to a waterfall, a steep walk to a lookout, and an orchid garden.

Reaching Viñales we find ourselves surrounded by picturesque limestone pincushion hills - called (“mogotes”). Vinales is one of the more agriculturally productive areas, so an abundance of local seasonal fruit and vegetables is always on offer such as enormous avocados and mangoes, pineapples, papaya, guava, and a several varieties of sweet potatoes. It's one of the cooler areas of Cuba, so it's also a nice escape from the hotter parts of the country. The nightlife is very active in this village with the local residents more than willing participants in dancing to the local live music.

This afternoon we include a visit to a tobacco farmers house to learn how to roll a perfect Cuban cigar.

I still keep in contact with our tour guide because he became a close friend during our stay there.

They go the extra mile to make sure that you get the most authentic Cuban experience possible.

Don't overlook this company because you won't find a better one.

This was honestly the trip of a lifetime!! Cuban Adventures was so helpful in terms of pre-trip information like visas, travel insurance and more.

Once we arrived in Cuba, every detail was perfect from our spacious vehicle to our fantastic guide Karell & friendly driver Raoul to the charming casa particulars we stayed at during the trip.

Viñales and Havana were all equally beautiful destinations.

Everything about the trip was amazing: the people, the accommodation, the food.

.

we loved it all! If I could give 20 stars, I would! Thank you Cuban Adventures! less....

They support people locally and their extremely friendly and professional guides will make your Cuban experience a true pleasure.

What a great company.

They took care of everything from start to finish.

I didn't have to worry about hauling my luggage around from city to city.

I didn't have to worry about where to catch a bus, rent a car, or negotiate a taxi.

I didn't have to worry about accommodations.

I didn't have to worry about where I was going to eat any meals.

Our guide, Yunior, (Junior) was excellent.

He know his history of Cuba better than most books would.

I highly recommend Cuban Adventures and Yunior.

"There are many tour guides at each temple waiting to give you a tour on a tuk-tuk. You can explore by yourself too. Rent a bicycle to get around easily. I'd recommend a motorbike, it's faster!"

Must pack items for Angkor Wat

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

@tiffanyswindow's Top Tips

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
