Family trip to Cuba

Explore Havana by Oldtimer - Cienfuegos: pearl of the south - Historical Trinidad - City of Che Guevara
Unique about this tour:
  • Go back in time and learn about Cuban history
  • Relax on the white sandy beaches of Varadero
  • Experience the kindness of the Cuban people firsthand by staying in casas particulares (Cuban B&B's)
  • Create unforgettable memories before going back to the future

Cuba is home to some of the best-kept colonial cities in the Caribbean. Think of the cobblestone streets in Trinidad, the beautiful Spanish architecture found in Cienfuegos, and the lesser known town of Sancti Spiritus. Not only will you learn about the colonial history of the country, you will also experience its more recent history first-hand when you arrive in Santa Clara: the final resting place of national hero Che Guevara.
This trip brings you back in time in the most unimaginable way. Cuba has opened its borders to the modern world, but the magical charm of traveling back in time is still there. Top off your trip by spending several days at the beach of Varadero, and catch your breath after this amazing journey through time and the this most unique and beautiful country.
