There is much to reflect on in Cuba, a lesson in cigar making, a trip in a 1950s taxi or the time warp experience of Spanish colonial cities. Or maybe muse on Cubas unique political experiment, the facts are well known but always worthy of further consideration whilst taking a reflective Mojito at the end of the day. Then let the music catch your attention, it is never far away, an essential part of a Cuban night. We fly into Havana and have an evening to€quaint ourselves briefly with the music, sights and atmosphere of one of the most distinctive capital cities in the world. Then we head east to walk in the mountains at Topes de Collantes before reaching Trinidad, one of the best preserved colonial cities in the Americas. Whilst here we stay in Casa Particulares, Cuban houses, to get a good idea of local life. We have along drive to Holguin, great for people watching in the town square after dinner and continue to Baracoa at the eastern end of the island. From here we walk to tropical beaches for a swim and perhaps some fresh fruit from a local farmer. Coconut milk just tastes better when you are sat under the tree where the coconut grew. We have a long day stopping in Santiago for lunch and sightseeing and then on to Bayamo. We walk to Castros command centre during the revolution. A fascinating insight into what happened. Continuing west with a night at Camagey and a cycle taxi tour of the town. Next to stay by the Hanabanilla Reservoir, a lovely relaxing place to walk and unwind. Finally we arrive back in Havana for our final night with plenty of time to enjoy the magnetic attraction of this lively city. The perfect place to end a unique holiday. This is a holiday for the traveller and has a pioneer status to indicate the spirit of adventure, as things may not always go as expected its the Cuban way! Visit soon with the new spirit of entente, Cuba is changing fast and isnt going to remain like this forever.
