Have you always longed to master Salsa or Latin dancing? Where better to learn than in Cuba, with fun and professional lessons taught by the leading dance school in historic authentic venues.
Ever dreamt of travelling back in time and cruising through the streets in a gleaming, brightly coloured convertible? Bring your favourite music and we can provide your amazing car, complete with private driver and perhaps ice-cold drinks.
Head to the south coast and museum city of Trinidad. We can whisk you away to the beach as the heat of the day eases. Perhaps enjoy a picnic and ice-cold drinks, swim in the warm waters and settle down to watch the sun slowly sink over the Caribbean Sea, a perfect end to the day.
Visit Santa Clara, a city of major revolutionary significance in Cuba and spend time at the symbolic Mausoleum of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara and the museum dedicated to his life. Next, head to the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery in Santiago De Cuba, the final resting place of Fidel Castro, one of the world’s most recognised leaders. Stay for the regular and unique changing of the guard ceremony and also take in the ornate Mausoleum of Cuba’s national hero Jose Marti, as well as other revolutionaries.
Head to the beautiful island of Cayo Jutias, remote, peaceful and tranquil, a perfect place to escape the stresses of modern life. Visit from Vinales and enjoy a rustic seafood lunch, snorkel in the crystal-clear waters where you can see many star fish congregating, and spend time wandering along the beach.
Learn how to make the perfect mojito, daiquiri or Cuba Libre cocktails in an authentic local Havana old town bar with a talented local mixologist and perhaps a small crowd of friendly locals to cheer you on.
Trek through the Escambray Mountains and swim in beautiful clear natural pools. Take lunch at a farmer’s house and as the day cools, settle down at your mountain cabana style hut with dinner, relaxed chat, or your favourite book. Slip into your sleeping bag on the terrace and enjoy the beautiful night sky as you drift off to sleep in your mountain retreat. Awaken at dawn and tuck into a hearty home-cooked Cuban breakfast. An awe-inspiring experience.
Take a guided trail through one of Cuba’s national parks and search for the Zunzuncito! The bee hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world and the size of a bee, with bright colours and a darting flight, it can be a challenge!
Visit the revolutionary camp at La Plata, situated deep in the Sierra Maestra mountains and see how Che, Fidel and their followers started the Revolution, before climbing Cuba’s highest peak in the footsteps of these Revolutionary heroes. At the summit, you will have completed your pilgrimage and a Cohiba cigar could be your reward as you look down over Cuba.
Watch the sunset over the Malecon promenade with your mojito in hand, then dine in a private restaurant with fresh lobster. Move on to a performance in your chauffeured old American car, perhaps with world-class ballet, jazz, salsa, or classical music on the menu.
As the night owls emerge, head to a late bar for cocktails before your chevy takes you to the sophisticated dance clubs and mansion houses offering late night chat and dancing. Emerge in time for the sun rise over Havana and slowly slip in to bed before the heat of the sun welcomes another day in this unique city.
