Day excursion to Guines by train and Classic Car including lunch

Havana – Guines - Havana
During this excursion you will experience one day the pure world and real life of the Cuban people. You will travel together with Cubans – shoulder to shoulder and under the same conditions in train. Afterwards you will drive into a small town with a trishaw taxi, on the same way as Cubans. You will have lunch in a small private restaurant and get in touch with the real Cuban cuisine. To conclude the day you will drive with a nearly 60-years old American taxi back to Havana and to your hotel or particular house. It will be one day Cuba pure, one day with many unforgettable impressions.

Schedule of the program:
09h00 in the morning: Your German-speaking travel guide will pick you up in your hotel or particular house and accompany you by bus or taxi to the railway station Havana.
There you will interchange into a scheduled train which drives the Cubans from Havana to one of the suburbs and further to one of the agricultural cities. These cities in the East, West and South of Havana are approximately 30 to 60 km away from Cuba’s capital and surround it like a far belt. All these small cities are very typical Cuban and very rarely visited from tourists so far. These cities supply the capital with grocery. 150 years ago, all those cities were very rich as they lived mainly from sugar production and exportation. These times are over. Nowadays, sugar production plays a minor role in Cuba as all facilities are completely out-dated and to modernize them, there is no money available. Further, the sugar price has decreased significantly. This is shown by many big, formerly very rich and nice houses which today look much unattended or appear tumbling down. Today the offspring of these former workers lives between these houses. Organized in a socialistic way, they try to survive by small privately-owned initiatives which nowadays are allowed.
10h00 (approx.!!) The train will be set in motion.
Quickly you will realize that the train is about a slow train due to its stops at small and smallest railway stations and other stations to get on and off the train. Meanwhile, your neighbors in the train are wondering if you have no money for a car or at least for an air-conditioned bus. Due to this they will try to start a conversation with you – in case of need with hands and feet – to find out for which reasons this obviously rich stranger decided to sit together with Cubans in a train in Cuba.
It will be an interesting ride. If needed your travel guide will help you to communicate with the native passengers.
The train can consist of a Russian diesel locomotive combined with TAINO wagons of Cuba’s own production or the Russian locomotive pulls used wagons which have been imported from Germany or Mexico. It also can be a rail car, either of the Cuban brand TAINO or a second-hand one, which many years ago was imported from Canada or Argentina or Spain. Let it be a surprise!
Depending on availability of the trains and railway tracks the train journey lasts one to two hours.
In most cases the train drives to the city Guines, located approximately 60 km in the South-East of Havana. But, if the railway track to Guines is closed or the train has technical problems, another route, for example to the small towns San Antonio de los Baños, Bejucal, Artemisa or Hershey, will be planed on short notice.
The schedule of the day program will remain unchanged by all means.

Cuba is the oldest railway country in Latin America and inaugurated its first railway track in 1836, earlier than its mother country Spain. This track leads from Havana via Bejucal to Guines. You will drive on Cuba’s oldest railway track!



12h00 (round about!!) Arrival by train at Guines. In front of the very old railway station, ¨your¨ trishaw will wait for you. With this very typical and common Cuban means of transport you will make a round trip through the small town.
Feel like a Cuban in your town. You will see that there are only a few motorized means of transport.
13h00 By trishaw you will drive to a small private restaurant, the so-called Paladar. Here, they cook traditional Cuban food. Your lunch is included in the excursion package, also one drink at your choice.
14h30 After lunch you will have time for a walk at your own speed to explore the city or you simply sit down under one of the shadowy trees at Plaza Central and take an hour of muse to watch the Cuban Sunday around you.
15h30 With a very old American classic car taxi you will be brought back to Havana. Depending on your wish, you will be dropped off either in the centre of Old Havana in front of the former seat of the government CAPITOLIO (final station of all regular taxis) or at your hotel respectively private house. Arrival approximately at 16h30.

End of day program.
