Get to know vibrant Havana by exploring the city in a classic car and ambling through its crumbling streets and historic old quarter. You’ll stay in a beautiful Cuban Casa in Vinales, providing an opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture. Tobacco fields, limestone rocks jutting out of the ground and quirky caves add to the awe-inspiring countryside here. Your journey takes you on to Trinidad next, where you will instantly notice the relaxed vibe of this colourful town. Your centrally located Casa is in the perfect spot from which you can soak up the atmosphere of the lively music halls, local galleries, selection of restaurants and cultural sights. From here you will spend the next 3 nights on a beautiful white Caribbean beach at the end of an expansive causeway; a secluded utopia for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. You’ll spend the last night of your holiday back in Havana, taking in the last of the city sights before you start your journey home!
