Hand-crafted Travel to Cuba

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and has so much to explore. It has a fascinating revolutionary history which you will learn about and relive during the excursions on your trip, as well as a vibrant music and dance culture. The scenery in Cuba is varied and beautiful – from rolling hills full of tobacco and sugarcane plantations, impressive mountains and forests to tropical lowlands and white-sand beaches, many of which are dotted with picturesque towns with attractive colonial architecture. Cuba is also home to many species of birds and is a good place for those who are interested in birdwatching to spot hummingbirds, trogons, parakeets among many more. Its beautiful coastline offers great opportunities to snorkel or dive, or simply relax on the beach, go for a romantic walk or a sunset boat ride. The warm, laid-back and charismatic Cubans will welcome you with open arms!
