Starting and ending in Havana, the "Taste Of Cuba" trip is a guided cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Trinidad, Havana and Santa Clara in Cuba. "A Taste Of Cuba" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Explore Cuba, a land known for revolution and rum, salsa and cigars, classic cars and crumbling colonial towns. The whole truth, however, is far more eye-opening and evocative. Guided by an expert tour leader, we unpack it all. Of course, there’s the essential experiences: dancing salsa, making mojitos and relaxing on the Caribbean sands of Playa Ancón. But it’s through our countless interactions with the local people and nightly stays in Cuban guesthouses that we truly understand a culture forged under unique circumstances: welcoming, sociable and resilient, despite daily adversities.
