What to expect on your Cuba Road Trip
Far from the all-inclusive resorts, our custom designed itineraries travel the back roads to rarely visited farming communities and hidden fishing villages nestled between virgin beaches and colonial towns. We take pride in making sure that each step of our journey is as socially conscious as possible, using 100% locally sourced private transportation, accommodation and dining establishments. Each night is spent with a local host, sharing family cooked meals and personal stories that bring home the Cuban experience.
We cruise the backroads in a classic 1950 Chevy Clipper tourbus driven by it's owner and restoration mechanic. Every meal is taken in a family home, served with pride and the freshest farm-to-table ingredients available. It's not quite camping, but this is not your mothers all-inclusive Caribbean holiday. This itinerary is strictly intended for spirited and experienced travelers with a wanderlust for out of the way people and places.
Our unique road-trip style tours run through the rural heart of Cuba and her culture. Journey from the colonial streets of old Havana to the turquoise Caribbean Sea. From the sands of Playa Giron and historic Trinidad's UNESCO World Heritage - to the Majestic Viñales valley and secluded playas of Cayo Jutias.
We explore tropical waterfalls and mountain villages from of the Escambray highlands to the northern cay beaches of Playa Pilar. Down rural lanes, through sugar plantations to the cathedrals of Camagüey and the fortress city of Santiago.
Along the way we offer optional on-demand local translator/fixers to go with you if decide to break from the group for a while.
We cover a lot of ground in a relatively short time, so please be ready for some early mornings and at least a couple of hours driving on most days. You should be physically fit enough to go on hikes or horseback through historic sugar plantations on hot sunny days - swim/snorkel for up to an hour in the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Our pre-selected family home stays are safe and extremely clean - but basic - with air conditioning, hot running water, and flushing toilets.
We travel as a small group of 5 or less persons. Price includes all costs on your trip:
All Meals & Accommodation - All Ground Transportation including airport pick-up & drop-off service. We also help guide you through visa requirements and make sure you have all of your paperwork in order.
