Important Notes
1. A single supplement is available on this trip. 2. Following a change from the airline operating the flight from Baracoa to Havana, we have had to change the itinerary slightly from what was brochured for 2014. The trip will now spend 1 night in Camaguey and 3 nights in Havana rather than 2 nights in each location.

Itinerary

Day 1 Havana
With music in the air, crumbling colonial buildings, iconic 50s cars and a unique and often chequered history, Havana always rolls to its own fabulous beat.
Day 2 Cienfuegos
A delightful city referred to as the 'Pearl of the South', Cienfuegos was designed beautifully by the French but emits a definite Caribbean vibe.
Days 3-5 Trinidad
Colourful houses, cobblestone streets, wonderful people, great food and breathtaking vistas over cerulean seas make Trinidad a firm favourite among visitors.
Day 6 Camaguey
Built to stop ongoing raids by pirates, the maze-like streets of Camaguey are slightly confusing, but nevertheless an amazing place of colour, culture and discovery.
Days 7-8 Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba has a revolutionary history and an exciting mix of cultures, which results in a vibrancy in the air and an artistic flair in the streets.
Days 9-11 Baracoa
Remote, unique and arguably one of the most beautiful places in Cuba, Baracoa has a wealth of natural gems to discover and swoon over.
Days 12-15 Havana
Havana has a tenacity that has seen it through 500 years of ups and downs, along with an infectious love of music, food and life in general.
