Itinerary summary

Day 1: Arrival in Havana

The guide greets visitors on arrival and accompanies them to the hotel, with quick stops at major landmarks along the way. The only place in the world where you can find vintage American cars running off Russian Lada engines, you will see ration shops juxtaposed against gleaming colonial palaces, and revolutionary sloganeering drowned out by all-night parties. Before dinner, enjoy welcome cocktails on a rooftop with a direct view of incredible UNESCO World Heritage sites. Afterwards, spend your evening at a mythical, underground jazz club.

Day 2: Havana

Begin the day with a panoramic tour of Havana in one of Cuba’s famed, open-top vintage cars. From this unique seat you will be taken on an exploration of Old Havan’s architectural and urban development highlights. Enjoy lunch in a spot nestled in the heart of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and take part in a Cuban cigar and rum tasting experience, where master rollers will teach you the delicate art of cigar rolling. Before dinner, enjoy cocktails and live music in a world-renowned bar, one that happened to be one of Ernest Hemingway’s favourite drinking haunts. Finally, end the day with a sophisticated dinner and enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure.

Day 3: Havana – Viñales Experience

On day three you will head west out of lively Havana, into the tobacco-growing region of Pinar del Rio. In the verdant Viñales Valley you will visit a tobacco farm and learn about the entire production process, from seed to smoke, and enjoy a mojito cocktail on a hotel terrace with a view of the vast valley. From here, we will drive through the picturesque countryside to explore its “mogotes,” or rock formations, and discover an ancient mural and caves. After a lunch of traditional Cuban dishes with another brilliant view, you will have time to meander through the historic town of Viñales, before driving back to Havana aboard a beautiful classic American car.

Day 4: Havana – Art and Entertainment

This day is all about creativity and entertainment. Start out with an intimate, curated art tour to the homes and studios of three visual artists. After lunch, discover incredible art and unusual trinkets at Havana’s largest crafts market, in a 19th century shipping warehouse known as Almacenes de San José. From here, continue onwards for cocktails in the lush gardens of a historic hotel, before enjoying dinner in a lighthouse-style restaurant. End the evening at Havana’s premiere nightclub and art gallery, where music, fashion, food, drinks, art and social life all collide in full force.

Day 5: Havana – Varadero

Drive to Varadero for a final day of relaxation with an all-day beach pass. All food and drinks are included, as well as some beach and pool activities. End the day with dinner in a unique, 1950s-built seaside restaurant and return to Havana.

Day 6: Havana Departure

Enjoy breakfast and the morning at leisure before check-out and private transfer to Havana’s International Airport.
