Explore Havana &  Trinidad From the Inside

 
 

Colorful vintage cars, mesmerizing architecture, salsa's living roots, a proud spirit of communitarianism, white sand beaches, and gorgeous countrysides provide endless inspiration.

Led by charismatic and helpful local guides, daily activities include a walking tour of Old Havana, visits to renowned museums and cultural sites, private gallery tours, a vintage auto and architecture tour, day trips to the gorgeous Vinales tobacco valley and Cuban beach towns, dance and art coaching.... and of course mojito-making lessons! 

 
Havana is an artist’s paradise: full of bright pastel colours, crumbling facades and beautiful people.

Casa Accomodation

 

Accommodation is in Cuba's classic "casa particulares" bed & breakfasts provide an authentic look into Cuban life.

Run by local families, these private homes are clean, comfortable, and equipped with kitchens and air conditioning. Bathrooms have showers and hot/cold running water. Casa breakfasts are typically tropical fruit, eggs with or without ham, rolls, coffee/tea, and fresh fruit juice.

Cuban Friends & Family

 

Our guides for excursions are knowledgeable and give personal as well as historical experience. 

Our hosts are elegant and welcoming casa owners. Our salsa teachers make it easy to relax and have fun in Cuba. The Cuban friends who join us for meals will share their life experience and views, and be eager to hear your impressions of the country they love. Most of our travelers to Cuba tell us that in a country of beautiful and compelling sights and experiences, it's the people who leave the strongest positive impression. Here, it will be easy to make Cuban friends and begin to see the country through their eyes.

 
It’s a rare privilege to have passionate and articulate locals on hand to guide you in a complicated place like Cuba. The tour schedule provides something to scratch every curiosity itch.
