Experience the real Cuba on two wheels

Reiserute

  • Day 1: Start Havana
    The group flight arrives in the afternoon and we transfer to our accommodation. Those on Land Only arrangements should join us at our accommodation in the evening. Accommodation: Casa Particulares
  • Day 2: Havana cycle tour; to Playa Larga and the Bay of Pigs
    After being fitted with our bikes we have a cycling tour of Havana with members of the Cuban ‘Masters’ Road Cycling Club. This club is made up of veteran Cuban cyclists who regularly compete in races in their respective age groups and will give us an insight into competitive cycling in Cuba. Arriving into the Old Town, we’ll stop for a visit to a community cycling project run by an inspiring group of Cuban women. As well as renting bikes and promoting cycling as the best form of transport, they teach children of ‘La Habana Vieja’how to ride and help fix people’s bikes up so that they are roadworthy. Later we transfer to Playa Larga and stay overnight at the Bay of Pigs and have dinner at a small beachfront restaurant with a large Cuban welcome. The speciality here is fresh fish caught by local fisherman just off the coast. Accommodation: Casas Particulares
  • Day 3: Coastal cycle ride; to Cienfuegos
    Our day begins with a coastal cycle ride from Playa Larga to Playa Giron where we visit a museum to learn about the Bay of Pigs invasion and the region's historical significance. Afterwards we cycle to the coast and a place called Caleta Buena for lunch and a swim, before transferring onwards to Cienfuegos. Today’s riding will be along a flat road that clings to the shimmering Caribbean coastline. The city of Cienfuegos is full of architectural delights, with a beautiful main square and restored buildings. One of the best ways to get around is by Bici Taxi, a fun tour using Cuba’s eco-friendly and typical city transport. Each Bici Taxi can accommodate two people and will be pedalled by a local resident (most of whom like to introduce their guests to reggaeton music!) The Bici Taxi tour is a great time to talk to local Cienfuegos residents and have a go at practising your Spanish. Afterwards we check into our casas for the night. Casas will be located close to the town centre, and to some great paladares. The malecon coastal road is usually a lively place to soak up the atmosphere with locals. Accommodation: Casas Particulares
  • Day 4: Ride from Cienfuegos to Cumanayagua; to El Nicho Waterfall
    On today’s cycle ride we are joined by members of the Cienfuegos Cycling team, there will be plenty of time to chat before and during the ride at the various pit-stops. This morning we cycle from Cienfuegos to Cumanayagua before transferring to the El Nicho Waterfall. We have a short walk to the waterfall, where we can relax and enjoy a swim in the natural pools.  Lunch will be taken at Paladar, just next to El Nicho Waterfall. In the afternoon we'll return to Cienfuegos by bus. For those who are interested, there is the option to do a more challenging ride and cycle all the way to El Nicho Waterfall (52km, 946 m assent, 532 m descent). Accommodation: Casas Particulares
  • Day 5: Cycle to Playa Ancon and back; salsa class
    We cycle to the fishing village of La Boca which is a popular spot with local fisherman going about their daily business, before continuing our ride to Playa Ancon, a classic white sand Caribbean beach where we have some time to relax and enjoy the sea. Our cycle continues to Casilda where our lunch will be taken at La Marinera, a private family run paladar. We will have a short cycle to get back to Trinidad, where this evening we take part in a salsa class with Cuban dance partners. There will be one dance partner for each member of the group, to assist with teaching the correct salsa moves. Trinidad is known for its nightlife, so after we’ve learnt the basics of salsa we’ll go to the town’s ‘Casa de la Trova’ live music venue to listen to local musicians playing authentic Cuban music. This venue is always lively and sociable, with plenty of local Cuban’s keen to let us practice our dancing with them! Accommodation: Casa Particulares
  • Day 6: Cycle to Rio Seibabo; transfer to Hanabanilla
    After breakfast we cycle to Rio Seibabo in the heart of the Sierra del Escambray mountain range. On route we will stop at the Manaca Iznaga textiles market where we will meet traditional textile makers and sellers. Our next stop will be at a farm where we are introduced to a local farmer and his family who make delicious honey. Hanabanilla is situated on the shores of Lake Hanabanilla and surrounded by lush tropical hills. This is one of the most beautiful days in terms of scenery. Afterwards we transfer to Hanabanilla, where we eat at a private paladar for a taste of authentic Cuban cuisine. Accommodation: Casa Particulares
  • Day 7: Cycle to Manicaragua; transfer to Che Guevara Mausoleum in Santa Clara; to Havana
    This morning we have short ride from Hanabanilla to Manicaragua, stopping along the way to visit a tobacco factory before transferring onwards to Santa Clara. Santa Clara was the first major city to be liberated by Castro's army in December 1958. Today several monuments commemorate this important period of Cuba's history, including the mausoleum of the legendary Che Guevara, where we'll stop for a short visit. Afterwards we transfer back to Havana. There is no better way to see Havana than by classic car, travelling in immaculately looked after classic cars in vibrant colours. Visiting both the old and new areas of the city, we discover the distinct neighbourhoods of the capital, stopping at points of interest for explanations and stories. Feel free to ask questions about why the streets of Cuba are filled with classic American cars manufactured in the 1950’s and how on earth the owners manage to maintain them! This evening we have dinner at a private paladar in Havana. Accommodation: Casa Particulares
  • Day 8: Sightseeing in Old Havana; transfer to the airport
    This morning we'll have a walking tour of old and new Havana, Cuba's capital and the largest city in the Caribbean. Havana is a busy, bustling, energetic capital. It is one of the finest colonial cities in the Americas with narrow streets, spacious plazas and glorious architecture. There is an air of faded grandeur about the place with paint peeling off buildings. The area of Old Havana is often described as a living museum, with its marvellous monuments, cathedrals and palaces. During our tour we visit a ration store, food market and artisan market for a chance to buy some souvenirs. Those on group flights will transfer approx. 30 - 40 minutes this afternoon to Havana airport for the return flight to London. Everyone else is free to make onward travel arrangements.

Viktig Informasjon & destinasjonsvideo

The trip destination
— 7 nights Casas Particulares — 6 days cycling with full vehicle support — 90% tarmac roads, 10% unpaved tracks
Food
7 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 4 dinners are included, allowing the option to try some local restaurants on the other evenings. We provide packed lunches during the day and there are plenty of water and fruit refreshment stops. 3 litres of water per person is included on cycling days. You may wish to bring some of your own energy snacks, as food shops, cafes and restaurants are scarce in many of the rural areas we visit. Cuba is not renowned for its culinary excellence (although it is improving). Food can sometimes be relatively unexciting and expensive - in no small part due to the long trade embargo implemented by the US. Vegetarians will find the food choice limited. Meals will be more varied for everyone in Havana and seafood is available on the coast. We recommend that you allow CUC 20 to CUC 30 pp per day for the lunches and evening meals on the days where food is not included. If you need more bottled water than provided, it is available for approx. CUC 1.50 per bottle.
