Eastern Cuba has historically been the most remote part of the island, yet it has inspired rebellion, revolution, the arts, music and dance. On our journey, we visit 4 stunning colonial cities, traverse the island's highest mountain range, hike and boat in the most diverse national park in the Caribbean, swim in a natural pool by the ocean and visit 2 UNESCO heritage sites.
Learn about Cuba's history as we visit the colonial gems of Santiago de Cuba (1515), Bayamo (1513), Baracoa (1511), and Gibara (1817) on foot, horse and carriage, and bicycle-taxi.
Learn about Fidel Castro's revolution and the man himself, as it is impossible to understand Cuba and the revolution without understanding Castro. Visit important revolution sites and the birthplace of Fidel Castro and his brother Raul in Birán.
Enjoy a local cooking lesson in delicious authentic Cuban cuisine and visit the Humboldt National Park (UNESCO) close to one of the most eastern points on the island of Cuba. Visit this virtually untouched part of Cuba to enjoy colonial architecture, natural beauty, learn about Cuban society, politics and experience the warmth and charm of the island of Cuba and its people!
