Old Havana & Vinales
Havana boasts some of the most impressive colonial architecture in the “New World”. We discover its secrets on foot and on bike, absorbing the atmosphere of the old quarter and touring the Plaza de la Revolucion. We travel west into the countryside to the community of Soroa and Las Terrazas, located on the edge of the Sierra del Rosario, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Taking to the backroads for 2 days and we then spend time amidst the mighty 'Mogotes' in Vinales, a dramatic backdrop of huge limestone outcrops, hemming in the ochre tobacco fields below.
Caribbean Shores & Colonial Trinidad
No visit would be complete without time on the Caribbean. We drive to the infamous Bay of Pigs, site of the ill-fated US-backed invasion and then spend 2 days cycling along the Caribbean coast. Here we have the chance to stop and swim - to dive into caverns and be surrounded by tropical fish. There's time to enjoy the sleepy town of Trinidad where faded, painted houses and quiet streets reflect the laid back atmosphere.
Wild Mountains & Untouched Valleys
After driving up into the densely forested Sierra Escambray to Topes de Collantes NP we get back onto our bikes for the most spectacular descent out of the jungle, hopefully stopping for a snack in a local coffee farmer's family home. Later we travel by bus to Santa Clara, home to Che's mausoleum. Our last stop is the unknown Yumuri Valley near Matanzas - a beautiful landscape ready to be explored. At Bacunayagua we can indulge with views across the Gulf of Mexico and one of the best Piña Coladas in the country, before heading back to Havana.
