Gay Cuba Tour

Day 1 Havana

The best way to explore this world of colonial buildings, elegant plazas, vintage cars and cigar-smoking musicians is by foot. Visit the Plaza de la Revolucion and pass giant monuments to legends Che Guevara and Jose Marti. The striking baroque facade of the Catedral San Cristobal de la Habana is a must-see.

 

Day 2-3 Vinales

One of Cuba's most attractive areas, the fertile valleys and distinctive limestone 'pin-cushion' hills are well worth exploring. Mix with the friendly Vinales locals and dance the night away after enjoying a tobacco farm visit and dinner under the stars.

 

Day 4 Cienfuegos

Head to the Casa de la Cultura Benjamin Duarte, where it's possible to climb a tower for stunning coastal views over this important port city. Stop by the Palacio de Valle, the architectural pride of Cienfuegos. For a local pick-me-up why not try a Cuban coffee - just be warned it's served strong, black and super-sweet.

 

Days 5-6 Trinidad

Take time to explore Trinidad's Spanish-style churches then head to Playa Ancon, a white sandy beach where many hours will no doubt slip lazily by. Snorkel over Cuba's colourful underwater world or hire a bike for a relaxing pedal around town. Practice your best salsa moves at one of Trinidad's famous music venues or admire the rhythm of the locals while sipping a minty mojito.

 

Days 7-8 Havana

Tour the vibrant orchid gardens of Soroa and also stop in Santa Clara to visit the Che Guevara mausoleum and learn about his legend and life - be sure to see the impressive bronze statue of Che bearing his rifle. Back in Havana, there is time for a final night of salsa.
