This eight-day sailing tour starts and ends in vibrant Havana, then welcomes you onto our spacious catamaran to head down the southern coast. Along the way visit plenty of beaches, explore the colonial city of Trinidad, and snorkel right off the comfortable catamaran that’ll be your home away from home.
