Take an unforgettable two-week Latin American adventure starting in Cuba, detouring into Costa Rica and then coming to a relaxing conclusion in Cuba's Caribbean Sea coast. A three day stay in Havana is where your journey will begin.
And as you savour the delights of the Cuban capital; the Malecon, the intriguing ruins of Old Havana, the scintillating nightlife, you will have a cosy Comodoro bungalow to call home. Its location is perfect for convenient forays into Havana's hottest tourist spots. Up next will be an eight-day excursion to the tropical jungles of Costa Rica. Prepare yourself to become one with nature as you mingle with exotic plant species and different kinds of wildlife underneath a vast forest canopy. Lastly you will get a taste of city life with a tour of San Jose, the Costa Rican capital. You will then return to Cuba to partake of the leisure and abundant sunshine provided by the scenic beaches of Varadero. And while you enjoy the beauty of this resort (preferably with your loved one), you will be staying at the luxurious Blau Varadero where impeccable service and plenteous recreational facilities are a given.
