OUR TOUR

Tour Cuba - PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Cuba is an exotic island that will develop all your senses. Rumba and samba, the smell of cigars and rich culture accompany you at every corner.

Our Cuban adventure begins in the capital, Havana. After a morning landing at Jose Marti Airport, drive to downtown Havana. We will start the day with a full day of discovering authentic colonial buildings, squares and other city attractions such as Central Park, Revolution Square
Visiting the city will be enhanced by driving in old American cars. With the wind in our hair, we will drive through the endless streets of Havana and along Malecon Avenue. After the tours we will have a cocktail with original Cuban rum. It will be enjoyed at the Havana Club Rum Museum. A visit to the museum will take us back in time to the creation of the most famous Cuban drink. In the evening, we indulge in Havana nightlife and learn the first salsa dance steps. If you wish, you can visit the famous and colorful Tropicana Cabaret. Havana will not leave us indifferent with its colonial and revolutionary past and with its communist present.
The next day we head to the fishing village of Cojimar, where Hemingway's hit "The Old Man and the Sea" was created. At one of Hemingway's restaurants, we order his most popular Daiquiri cocktail. Then we visit his estate and villa Finca la Vigia.
From Havana our journey continues to the picturesque Karst landscape of Vinales. The valley will fascinate us with its simple beauty. The road to Vinales will lead us past coffee and tobacco plantations over which stone masses of might rise. On the way, we stop and drink some freshly brewed coffee with the locals and see the hand-rolling of cigars. After arriving in Vinales we ride our horses and ride through the beautiful countryside to the prehistoric Mural and the Indian Underground Cave with driftwood. We make another full day trip there to the sandy beaches of Cayo Levisa Island. We'll let the white sand caress our feet gently and enjoy the crystalline Caribbean sea. After a full day of relaxation, we return to Havana, from where we move south of the island to the second largest city of Santago de Cuba.
Santiago de Cuba is the most African, the most musical, the hottest city and is the place where the Cuban revolution began. We will get to know the city with its beautiful colorful colonial buildings, Caribbean tradition and culture. We will visit the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery with the Mausoleum of Jose Marti, the tomb of Fidel Castro and the Fortress of Moro. In the evening, we dance to the rhythm of Cuban music and salsa (joining the traditional carnival in July).
From Santiago de Cuba, the route will take us to Camaguay. We will take a look at the cowboys on innovative wheels and refresh ourselves with Cuban beer Bucanero. From Camaguey we will embark on an all-day excursion through the white sandy beaches of San Lucia and Caya Sabinal. We will sail in the turquoise sea and discover the beautiful coral sea. The Cayo sabinal is also home to deer and the largest colony of tribes in Cuba.
On the way to Trinidad, we stop at the lookout point with a great view of the Valle de los Ingenios. The valley is known for sugar cane plantations, so we will visit the estate of former Barons of Manac Iznag, where we will taste freshly squeezed sugar cane juice.
Trinidad is one of the most beautiful colonial cities in Latin America under UNESCO protection. In a relaxed atmosphere, we will stroll along paved roads between colorful houses and get the feeling that the city has not changed much since colonial times. If you wish, we will visit one of the museums or sunbathe on Playa Ancon Beach, where we will expect a sunset. When we start we jump back to Trinidad for fun and dance.
From Trinidad we will ascend the hilly Escambray to Topes de Colantes. We will do a short trek, aiming to swim in pools under falling waterfalls. We will walk through the tropical forest and admire the diverse plant and animal ecosystem. 
After a visit to the National Park, drive to Santa Clara, where the Che Guevara Mausoleum stands, dedicated to one of the greatest revolutionaries of all time. We will walk around the city and try typical Cuban food.
The next day, an all day trip to the Cayo Santa Maria Reserve, where we snorkel and enjoy the Caribbean Sea. We will also have a close encounter with the dolphins. We can caress them and take pictures with them. After enjoying all day, we return to Santo Claro, where we have a little more fun.
On an all-day ride from Santa Clara, we will drive past the city of Cienfuegos to the Bay of Pigs, which is known for its latest showdown between Fidel Castro and the anti-revolutionary army. On the way, one last jump into the sea on the Playa Giron or check our courage by jumping into the 70 m deep natural pool of Cueva de los Peces. Before returning to Havana, we visit a crocodile farm to admire a rare Cuban crocodile. We will have a day left for Havana to spend on our last experiences and souvenir purchases.
The order of the views may be switched, but the content remains the same. The program is recommended for those who want an adventure, travel and free way to discover the world.

DETAILS

About the country

Cuba is a charming island country located in Central America. It is an archipelago in the northern Caribbean between the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, consisting of the island of Cuba, Isla de la Juventud and some 1600 islands. The closest neighboring countries are Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Haiti, The Bahamas, Florida, and Mexico. Cuba is only about 145 km from Florida. In terms of surface area, Cuba is five times larger than Slovenia. It is a socialist republic and its president is Raul Castro (brother of the late Fidel Castro). The official language is Spanish and the national currency is Cuban Peso (CUP) and Convertible Peso (CUC). Cubans are happy people and know how to enjoy themselves despite their poverty. When celebrating together they like to dance salsa (it comes from this island), rumba and mambo. The average July temperature on the island is 26 degrees C and the average January temperature is around 21 degrees C. The climate is tropical. Everyone who goes to Cuba is excited about it. Those who choose to dive along the island are also thrilled, as the underwater world is simply beautiful. The crown of all Cuban attractions is precisely its capital, Havana. It is one of the first cities established in the New World and with its compact city center represents the heart and soul of Cuba. At the other end of the island lies the second largest city of Santiago de Cuba. The city is also called the cradle of the revolution, as Castro rebels landed here in the 1950s. The most famous rebel who became one of the symbols of the revolution and Cuba is certainly Ernesto Che Guevara - Che.


Visa and vaccination

Slovenian citizens need a visa to enter Cuba. A minor cannot travel to Cuba without an adult escort. If the minor is not traveling with his or her parent or legal representative, he or she needs the authorization of the parent or legal representative certified at the Cuban Consulate. An adult who has entered Cuba with a minor must also leave Cuba with him. If a minor is traveling with only one parent, he or she does not need the authorization of the other parent.

We recommend that you obtain travel and health insurance before traveling. See if there are any restrictions and that your insurance policy covers all the services you would like to use. There are no mandatory vaccinations for Cuba. Normal travel vaccinations (hepatitis A, B, tetanus ...) are recommended - as desired.

IMPRESSIONS

Vtisi

Če na kratko povzamem moje vtise o potepanju po Kubi se sliši takole - zame je bilo nepozabno. Ker sem že nekaj časa sanjala o Kubi je bila ta tura super in sem jo doživela tako kot sem si predstavljala po prebranih potopisih in po pripovedovanju tistih, ki so jo že doživeli. V spominu mi bodo ostali sigurno domačini, ki so kljub revnemu načinu življenja prijazni, gostoljubni, predvsem pa vedno pripravljeni pomagat in seveda s ponosom pokazat svojo domovino. nepozabne so vožnje s starodobniki, glasba in ples po ulicah.... Tudi naša skupina je bila super razpoložena, za kar je seveda odgoren tudi Marko, ki je bil super v vseh pogledih- prijazen, vedno na voljo, dobro podkovan o Kubi, potrpežljiv, kljub utrujenosti vedno dobre volje.... torej vse je bilo ok. Seveda bom vsakemu, ki bi ga zanimala Kuba priporočila potovaje s Charom, pa ne samo Kuba tudi druga vaša potovaja sem že večkrat priporočala znancem.
lp, Saša
