Tour Highlights


Sancti Spiritus & Trinidad

After a welcome at Cayo Coco Airport the tour will start with a short stop at the picturesque colonial town of Sancti Spiritus, one of the only towns in Cuba with a river running through it.

Enjoy a short, guided tour of this typical Cuban town before continuing on to the amazing UNESCO World Heritage city of Trinidad which many say resembles a living museum and one of the highlights of any visit to Cuba.  Upon arrival at your accommodation, the remainder of the evening will be spent at leisure to relax after the flight.



Take a tour of the centre of Trinidad including a visit to the History Museum focusing on a family’s life in Cuba in the 1800s. Sample the unique Trinidad rum and sugar cane cocktail at La Canchanchara, an old house dating back to the 18th Century.

After lunch, the remainder of the afternoon and evening will be free to relax in the city, or perhaps take a taxi to the nearby Caribbean beach of Playa Ancon and enjoy the beach.


El Nicho & Cienfuegos

Visit El Nicho National Park, a marvel of nature with dozens of waterfalls and natural pools in an area virtually untouched, hidden among the mountains and one of the most beautiful spots in Cuba. See The Black Creek waterfalls, where water plunges more than 30 meters. Swim in the cool natural pools before a rustic lunch is served in a restaurant in the national park. During the tour, you can walk up numerous walking paths with a gentle hiking trail of 2 km.

Continuing after El Nicho to the French influenced small colonial city of Cienfuegos, which sits overlooking a picturesque bay. En route there will be a tour of the famous Botanical Gardens, one of the largest in the Americas with an abundance of species of plant from tropical regions.


Santa Clara

Stroll through the picturesque colonial centre and along the seafront ‘malecon’ promenade to Punta Gorda, with amazing views across the bay.

Continue to Santa Clara, a city of major historical significance and the final resting place of Che Guevara where on arrival there will be a panoramic tour of Santa Clara. Visit ‘Tren Blindado’ the train that was attacked by Che Guevara and the turning point in the Cuban Revolution, as well as the final resting place of Che Guevara at the very symbolic mausoleum.
