ITINERARY

Day 1 -Havana 
Welcome to Cuba! You will arrive at the international airport in Havana where we can arrange to have a car waiting for you to take you to Hotel Comodoro (or similar). 

Day 2 - Havana 
After breakfast, Pick up Rental Car. But you must not forget to take time to experience the wonders of Havana. Stroll through Havana's colourful streets, bursting with grand architecture, classic American cars from the 50s, and the rhythm of salsa and cha cha cha. Spend the night at Hotel Comodoro (or similar). 

Day 3 – Havana - Playa Larga 
After breakfast, drive to Playa Larga. This beach has historical importance as it was one of the two beaches invaded by US-backed exiles in 1961 during an attempt to overthrow the country's leader, Fidel Castro. Now it is a paradise for divers. Try scuba diving or simply bask in the sun. Spend the night at a Casa Particular.

Day 4- Playa Larga - Trinidad 
Drive to Trinidad. Trinidad’s old town is wonderful to explore on foot since there are no cars - it's a pedestrian only area. Trinidad is known for its brightly coloured houses and timeless neighbourhoods. Enjoy cobbled streets and colonial mansions built upon the former riches of the sugar trade and relish the timeless and charming buzz of trotting horses, and bicycles. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, this is truly a fascinating place to explore. Perhaps even explore stunning botanical gardens. Spend the night at a Casa Particular.

Day 5- Trinidad - Camagüey 
Drive to Camagüey. Walk around the beautiful preserved old town and discover one of Camaguey's highlights: big clay jugs decorating gates all around the city. Stroll down narrow winding alleys and discover hidden plazas, dotted with baroque and catholic churches, galleries and charming bars. Spend the night at Hotel Camino de Hierro (or similar). 

Day 6 – Camagüey - Bayamo 
After breakfast, drive to Bayamo. Bayamo is the capital city of Granma Province of Cuba. Bayamo is the birthplace of the revolution and predates both Havana and Santiago. Soak up the easy-going, slow-paced, trapped-in-time atmosphere and enjoy the plentiful sights of horses, chess players and colourful vibrancy. Spend the night at Hotel Royalton (or similar). 

Day 7 – Bayamo - Santiago de Cuba 
After breakfast, drive to Santiago de Cuba. This drive will take you past the Sierra Maestra Mountains, infamous for their rugged terrain, bushy woods, hilly landscape and thriving wilderness as well as the backdrop of some of Cuba’s most important historical stories. Eventually you will reach Santiago de Cuba, also known as the second capital of Cuba. This vibrant colonial city is beautiful and exciting. This pulsating city is famous for literature, music and Afro-Caribbean culture. We recommend that you visit the famous Castillo El Morro, an immense 16th-century citadel, the remarkable cemetery Santa Ifigenia, and the Moncada Museum, one of the best museums in the country. Spend the night at a Casa Particular.

Day 8 - Santiago de Cuba - Holguín 
Drive to Holguín, known as the ‘city of parks’ with its many central squares, teeming with authentic bars and restaurants devoid of the tourism focus that is prevalent elsewhere in Cuba. Return your rental car and head to Holguín airport, for a domestic flight to Havana. You will spend the night at The Comodoro Hotel in Havana.

Day 9 – Havana
Spend the day as you please. You will spend the night at The Comodoro Hotel in Havana.
