Our selection of escorted tours are an excellent way to have the privacy of your own room throughout you trip, at the same time as meeting new friends and experiencing Cuba together with likeminded travellers. You will be accompanied throughout by a friendly and knowledgeable English-speaking guide and why not extend your escorted tour with a beach stay or more days elsewhere exploring independently.

Coming to Cuba

Fly Virgin Atlantic  direct to  Havana with our excellent  Premium Economy or Economy fares. Use your local airport in the UK and save the journey to  Gatwick and fly via Paris , Amsterdam or Madrid.

On arrival to Havana International airport, we’d recommend the services of our airport fast track service, with a welcome directly from the aircraft , a fast track through airport formalities and enjoy a Cuban coffee or cocktail while your bags are collected by the porter team .

At the arrivals lounge, look for the Captivating Cuba Representative carrying our branded sign. After a very brief meet and greet our representative will take you to your transfer so you can start enjoying your holiday straight away.

Your Stay in Havana

There’s no place quite like Havana for taking some time out and escaping the pressures of common life. This is a city that seems frozen in time, disconnected from the outside world. Walking the cobbled streets of old Havana or seating on the Malecon, Havana’s iconic seafront drive, feels both relaxing and energising.

A paradise for solo travellers – safe, energising, friendly, utterly different – Havana is a welcoming city for peaceful contemplation, mind-opening experiences, and rich culture that many solo travellers appreciate.

We’ve picked some of the best hotels for solo travellers. However, for an even more enriching experience, we do recommend a stay in a Casa particular, a privately run bed and breakfast, to enjoy the well-known friendliness and hospitality of the Cuban family.

The city has much to offer to solo travellers. We’d recommend a shared guided city tour of Havana and see all the sights of this amazing city in a small group, or  a fun but professional salsa lesson in an iconic Old Havana venue and learn the steps to help you salsa throughout your holiday.

Have a private guide to show you ‘real Havana’ and immerse yourself into the Havana way of life. Listen to world class Jazz at our recommended jazz club with the option to be accompanied by a guide and add some bar visits this evening, and Enjoy a day in the countryside at the UNESCO heritage site of Vinales Valley on our daily group tour

Experience Trinidad

After enjoying Havana and before heading to our recommended beach hotels , take the chance to visit Trinidad travelling there  privately  on our exclusive sightseeing transfer with your own private guide and visit some fascinating sites en route.

Alternatively, we’d suggest the Iberostar Grand Hotel in the town centre, or the Brisas Trinidad del Mar if you’d prefer to stay by the beach (30 minutes from the town centre).

Join a catamaran and spend the day on the Caribbean Sea. Swim, snorkel, relax and spend time on the beautiful, unspoilt island of Cayo Blanco

Idyllic Cayo Santa Maria

If you are searching for isolation, a quiet beach surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife, a peaceful place that inspires harmony and balance, then Cayo Santa Maria could be the right choice for your time at the beach.

Cayo Santa Maria is a group of small islands connected to the mainland by a causeway. Unspoiled and virtually untouched, these island attract all sort of wildlife, from the pink flamingos to large groups of lobsters and colourful fish that make snorkelling in this area a really exciting experience.

The island boast some of the best beach resorts in Cuba. We’ve included in our selection only the best for solo travellers.
