Day 8: Camaguey & Bayamo

This morning there will be a panoramic walking tour of Camaguey with the chance to learn about the history of the city and explore the colonial centre which is an UNESCO World Heritage site.

After the tour of the city we will continue our journey east towards Bayamo, a small town known locally as ‘La Heroica’ due to its long history of revolutionary battles against the Spanish in the 19th Century and Batista’s troops during the last revolution.

On arrival into Bayamo, lunch will be available at the hotel and there will be time to settle in, relax and take a stroll around the picturesque and friendly town.

In the afternoon, you will begin a short orientation tour of Bayamo which will focus on the leafy square of Parque Cespedes. Named after the ‘Father of Cuba’, Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, born overlooking the square, in fact he announced Cuba’s first independence from Spanish rule in the same square in 1868!

Dinner tonight will be at the hotel in Bayamo.
