Arrival to Havana’s International Airport.
Welcome to Cuba!
A member of Cuba 360 will pick you up at the airport, look for our logo with your name on it (or the name of the person who booked the holiday). Next, you will be transferred to your accommodation where you can relax for the rest of the day, or walk around the city, if you prefer so.
Walking tour of Old Havana, escorted by your guide. Discover the magic that hides in every corner of this audacious city. More than 500 years of history make Havana the perfect place to unleash your curiosity, especially for those who enjoy architecture. Hundreds of buildings from the 19th, 18th, 17th, and even 16th centuries spread around the narrow streets of this romantic city.
Jump in a classic convertible car and visit the highlights of the more modern part of Havana, with stops at points of interest.
Head to Viñales Valley, one of Cuba’s most magnificent natural settings. Known for its fertile soil, which along with its natural micro-climate, make the land suitable to grow some of the finest tobacco in Cuba, hence, the world. Visit the Prehistoric Mural, stunning wall painting on the side of a mountain, discover the Indian Cave with a boat trip through a subterranean river and try some zip lining whilst enjoying the beautiful views around.
It’s time for some action. Prepare for some horse riding around the valley. Stop for a nice lunch in the countryside, accompanied with some fresh, invigorating “guarapo”, Spanish word for sugarcane juice. Adventure inside Palmarito cave and have a swim in the subterranean river that runs free a couple meters away from the entrance.
Viñales-Bay of Pigs
Head to Bay of Pigs, the same place where more than 50 years ago an invasion carried out by Cuban exiles and organized by the US government took place.
Bay of pigs is located in Zapata Swamp, the biggest natural reserve in Cuba and a place that boasts with wildlife.
In the afternoon, relax on the local beach, maybe have a drink or two. Here, restaurants have their tables, literally, in the sand.
Bay of Pigs
Go in an excursion around Bay of Pigs. Visit Punta Perdiz, an excellent spot for snorkeling and diving, near the entrance of the Bay.
Bay of Pigs-Cienfuegos
Head to Cienfuegos, one of Cuba’s youngest cities, founded in 1819 by French emigrants from Bordeaux and Lousiana, its elegant classical architecture earned it a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing in 2005.
Visit El Nicho, a refreshing waterfall on the the mountains of Cienfuegos, reached by a short trail that passes two natural pools (where you can swim). Just beyond the falls is a mirador offering views over lush mountains and the distant Hanabanilla reservoir.
Continue to Trinidad, a perfectly preserved Spanish colonial settlement where the clocks stopped in 1850 and other than by the watches of tourists have yet to restart. Have a walking tour around the city with the opportunity to visit local museums and art galleries.
It’s time for some adventure. Prepare for some horse riding around the mountains and valley. A place that once, long time ago, used to have the most important sugarcane plantations in Cuba. Stop for a nice lunch in the countryside, accompanied with some fresh, invigorating “guarapo”, Spanish word for sugarcane juice. If you are still eager for some action, maybe having a swim at a crystal clear isolated river it’s the answer.
Free day. Refer to us for optional activities.
On your way to Havana, stop at Santa Clara, a city with a very close connection to Che Guevara. At the final days of the fight for the Cuban communist revolution, back in 1958, a series of combats happened here that decided the course of history.
Visit Che Guevara’s mausoleum, where his remains are kept, along with the ones of his comrades in arms.
Santa Clara is also known for being kind of an “edgy” city, with a local cultural scene that contrasts with the rest of the country. Santa Clara has the first drag show in Cuba and also one of the most prestigious rock festivals in the area.
Visit a cigar factory to learn about the globally renowned and iconic Cuban cigar production. Havana is the birthplace of premium cigars, and the city is dotted with cigar factories of all shapes and sizes.
Visit to the Rum Museum to learn about the origin and development of the rum production in the island and enjoy a Cuban cocktail. Shaped by Cuban climate, geography, history, and people, rum is an essential part of the nation’s culture.
