Cuba is a fascinating and unique island located just 90 miles south of the United States. Known for its rich culture, colorful history, and stunning natural beauty, Cuba is a special destination for travelers looking for something different and a bit undiscovered.
The blend of African, European, and indigenous influences, makes for a vibrant and eclectic mix of music, art, and cuisine. On The Nomadic Network’s Cuba tour, we will take you into the homes, restaurants, farms, and patronize small businesses of Cuban people. We’ll stay in bed and breakfasts called casa particulars run by Cuban families. We’ll take you to locally-owned cafes and even join some local farmers in a backyard pig roast! Our itinerary is packed and carefully planned to ensure that what you’re doing directly impacts Cuban businesses and families. During your tour, you’ll make friends with Cuban artists, musicians, farmers, homestay hosts, domino enthusiasts, and salsa dancers.
We’ll stroll the streets of Havana taking in 5 centuries of unique architecture, vintage cars, and a lively music scene. We will also visit the gorgeous Viñales Valley, a stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to tobacco fields and farmers, rare limestone rock formations and caves, and the charm of small-town life in rural Cuba. Here we will see the countryside on foot and horseback, join a traditional Cuban pig roast and visit farms to learn about tobacco production as well as crops in this region. You’ll even get to hand-roll your own cigar!
And certainly no trip to Cuba would be complete without trying all the local foods! As part of our tour, we sample all sorts of delicious Cuban dishes, from traditional favorites like ropa vieja and lechon asado, and of course we’ll drink some world-famous Cuban rum!
Our Cuba tour is a once-in-a-lifetime trip that you absolutely don’t want to miss out on!
Casa particulares are like bed & breakfasts. They are locally-owned simple, but well maintained, and boast welcoming hosts, AC, mini-fridges, (slow) WiFi access, most have porches or garden areas. Our group will be divided among houses within a block of each other.
During the trip, we’ll travel via a private van throughout the country. You’ll get the chance to ride around in classic cars, bicitaxis (bicycle with a passenger trailer), private taxis, shuttles, and on horseback.
Daily breakfasts, four lunches, four dinners are included (including one alcoholic beverage or specialty non-alcoholic beverage at dinners). Due to visa restrictions, we include nearly every meal during your trip.
We are here in “Support for Cuban People” so local communities will benefit from our trip every step of the way. We aim to offer as sustainable an experience as we can. Trash is recycled whenever possible.
This tour will have 8-16 travelers on it so we can provide a great small group tour experience. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy unique, rewarding activities that would not be accessible with more people.
