La Vida Real

Traditions define countries, and are compiled of people´s everyday life. On this tour of the entire island, you will feel the deep pride locals take in being Cubans.

Start in Havana exploring the New7Wonder City inside out, from a stylish scenic tour in a classic car to an insightful walk through the colonial streets and alleys. Learn all about Cuban tobacco in the farm of a renowned veguero, listen to interesting stories told by local farmers in Viñales, and visit a modern art studio in Matanzas, the Venice of Cuba. Admire the only Cuban city founded by the French, and its architectural differences with the city of Trinidad, a colonial gem that remains essentially intact, where you will enjoy a relaxing day at the beach.

As you head east, immerse yourself deeper in Cuban history. Discover Camagüey, a labyrinth of little, irregular streets once trodden by pirates and privateers; then Bayamo, the first villa declared free from colonial Spain.

Take it to the next level in Santiago de Cuba paying your respects to the independence war heroes in Santa Ifigenia Cemetery, the last resting place of countless luminaries, including Fidel Castro. Discover much more than history in the charming city of Santiago de Cuba. The legendary city is home to the best Cuban rum, popular rhythms like Son, and the Patron Saint of Cuba: the Virgen de la Caridad. People here speak with a distinct cadence and are unable to remain still to the beat of Conga.

Head for Baracoa, the first villa founded by the Spanish in Cuba. Surrounded by a plethora of mountains, rivers and hidden beaches, revere nature in all her glory.

At the end of the tour, you will have the opportunity to relax in a beach resort in Guardalavaca.
