Tour Overview

Cuba’s music, beaches, old cars, striking architecture and revolutionary history combine to make the perfect cultural destination with a lively atmosphere. Our cycle route passes through stunning countryside with a patchwork of plantations, fields and jungle, allowing us to appreciate the traditional way of life that continues today. Out of the saddle we can experience Trinidad’s vibrant music scene, the crumbling colonial buildings of Havana and learn about the revolutionary history of Santiago. After a day of cycling you'll no doubt welcome Cuba's speciality - a refreshing mojito!

Highlights

  • Cycle the length of idyllic Cuba through the country's key historic colonial and revolutionary areas

  • High quality, well-maintained bikes and mechanical support throughout

  • Full vehicle support throughout the trip with two vehicles for groups of 10 or more

  • Cycling leaders trained to UK leadership standards (CTC Bike Tour Leader Award)

  • Vibrant culture with its rum, mojito's and salsa beats!

  • Cuban Tourist Cards included for all UK residents

  • Direct flights with Virgin Atlantic usually available

Itinerary

What's Included

  • Meals
    14 breakfasts, 13 lunches, 10 dinners.

What's Not Included

  • Visas or vaccinations

  • Travel insurance

  • Single accommodation (available on request)

Accommodation

We spend 14 nights in casas particulares, traditional Cuban guesthouses that provide a warm welcome and, best of all, an insight into the local lifestyle and culture. Rooms are on a twin-share basis with air conditioning and private bathrooms.



Every property we use has been inspected and assessed by our local team. Some are large multi-room houses that are home to entire families, others are run by individuals, and in some cases the owners live elsewhere. We typically use several different properties in close vicinity to accommodate our full group. We always do our best to ensure those in single-room accommodation are within a house where other Exodus clients are staying.



The casa owners are usually happy to help with laundry for a small fee. Most casas do not have hairdryers. There are often pets (a cat or dog) at the casas - please advise at the time of booking if this is problematic.



Please note, power cuts occur regularly in Cuba and you should expect there to be blackouts for hours at a time. This is a part of daily life in Cuba and torches are readily available for evening
ight-time blackouts. Hot water supplies are not always guaranteed and water pressure can be temperamental. Cuba is not a luxury destination and anyone travelling to the island should be prepared for this.

Food


14 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 10 dinners included, allowing the option to try
some local restaurants on the other evenings.

We provide packed lunches during the day and there are plenty of water and
fruit refreshment stops. 3 litres of water per person is included on cycling
days. You may wish to bring some of your own energy snacks, as food shops,
cafes and restaurants are scarce in many of the rural areas we visit. Cuba is
not renowned for its culinary excellence (although it is improving). Food can
sometimes be relatively unexciting and expensive - in no small part due to
the long trade embargo implemented by the US. Vegetarians will often find the
food choice limited. Meals will be more varied for everyone in Havana and
seafood is available on the coast. We recommend that you allow CUC 20 to CUC
30 pp per day for the lunches and evening meals on the days where food is not
included. If you need more water than provided, it is available for approx.
CUC 1.50 per bottle.

Cycling Cuba 2014

Well organised, fun and safe trip

Well organised, fun and safe trip

CYCLING CUBA

The holiday was pretty much as described in the Tr

The holiday was pretty much as described in the Trip Notes - a chance to see beyond the beaches and bodegas and experience, as much as you can as a tourist, a little bit more of real Cubans living their lives, as well as visit some of the different areas of this fascinating country in a period of transition. The cycling was challenging but it certainly did improve my fitness. The food was rather unexciting and the lavatory arrangements unpredictable, but these had been well signalled by the literature. The weather was consistently hot and humid, so the excellent backup from the support team, whether water, fruit, local knowledge or just encouragement on the road, was very much appreciated.

A most enjoyable experience, an interesting destination and a well managed cycle tour - highly recommended for cyclists of all abilities.

Cycling Cuba - the holiday of a lifetime!

16 day cycling holiday in Cuba, covering most of the island. Cycling between 35-80k for 10 days, with back-up support and bus transfers. Staying in huge variety of accommodation, from 5 star luxury hotels, to Russian utilitarian hotels, to beautiful colonial hotels, and a couple of casas, giving insight into how the locals live.

Cycling through Cuba and it's history

A fantastic holiday for those keen to experience the delights of this vibrant and happy country. The cycling is tough, lots of hills and a strong headwind much of the time, not to mention the potholes and exhaust fumes! But in the saddle you get to see the real Cuba, off the beaten track, the smiling Cuban faces, the simple Cuban homes and the wonderful Cuban music - all in warm weather and clear skies. We did however not expect the fantastic history lesson that we received from our leader, who left no stone unturned in his explanations of the events prior to, during and post the Revolution of the 1950s. By the end of the holiday we had all gained a much better understanding of the Cuban way of life and we found ourselves being intrigued as to what the future might hold for this amazing country.

This was a fantastic trip and I highly recommend it. We saw so much of the country: cities, villages, beaches, mountains, rural communities, museums, and monuments. Was great to get so far east. Cars and trucks on the road are very considerate. We went end of April/beginning of May and it was incredibly hot.
