Day 1 Havana
Arrive in Havana at any time. There are no planned activities, so check into the hotel and enjoy the city. The guide will organize a short meeting in the evening. Additional Notes: It is important to note that Cuba tends to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and infrastructure are generally old and may not have been maintained to the highest standard. Elevators, internet and A/C often break down, things happen very slowly and water pressure and hot water can be minimal. Cuba is an amazing place to visit but to fully enjoy and relax, western expectations should be left at home and your sense of adventure should be your guide. Included Activities: Arrival Day
Day 2 Havana/Aguas Claras (1B, 1L, 1D)
Depart Havana after breakfast and a morning briefing from the CEO. Take a short journey west to Pinar del Río, the “Garden Province” of Cuba.

Due to the richness of the soil, Pinar del Río accounts for 59 per cent of Cuba’s tobacco plantation, with the first factory opening in 1760. The small village of Viñales sits in a fertile valley, lined with mogotes, making for some spectacular views. Test your cycling ability around here to get started, continuing on to Aguas Claras.
