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.
Days 2-3 Las Terrazas
Journey to Las Terrazas, stopping en route at the Finca de Plantas Medicinales to learn all about local herbs and their medicinal properties. At Las Terrazas, hike through lush forest, stumble upon picturesque waterfalls and keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of some of the native birdlife. Perhaps take a canopy tour, relax in the San Juan river baths or explore the ruins of an old French coffee plantation. There are some incredible art and pottery studios in the area too.
Days 4-6 Vinales
Surrounded by a unique karst valley, tobacco plantations and atmospheric caves, Vinales is a peaceful, charming town with some of Cuba's most welcoming people.
Days 7-8 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.
