6. day: (Santa Clara / Moron / Cayo Coco - ca. 240km)

From Santa Clara you take the speed highway A1 to Ciego di Avila and from there you will go on to Moron. We recommend a beachday at the Jardines del Rey (The queens gardens). The two islands, Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, which build a part of the unique garden, are connected with a pedraplén (street on a stone dam over the sea) to the motherisland and are not only appreciated for the quality of their beaches, but also for their valuable natural elements like the interesting bird-fauna and the good condition of the maritime and earthly ecological systems. Overnight-stay at the hotel Moron. 



7. day: (Moron / Camagüey - ca. 130 km)

Camagüey – city of clay pots
First you go back from Moron on the Carretera Central and to Ciego di Avila and from there via Florida to Camagüey. The capital and the province Camagüey is famous for its clay pots. The city, which is home country for lots of eminent personalities, has the best extant historical centre of the island. The city has a structure of places, each with its own identity, that builds a design and lay-out of a road defined as a broken plate. You should also not miss the Cultural Centre „Marverde“.



8. day: (Camagüey / Las Tunas / Bayamo - ca. 210 km)

From Camagüey you go on at the Carretera Central via Las Tunas to Bayamo. Don´t miss a city tour of Las Tunas. Las Tunas is situated in the middle of the corresponding province of eastern Cuba, between the water of the Atlantic ocean in the north and the Golfs of Guancanayabo, in the south. A province where rural folklore and other folkloric elements of African origin emboss the traditional folk culture. From Las Tunas you go on through a grand landscape to Bayamo. In Bayamo you should visit the villa of the Spanish city founder Diego Velásquez. Tip: Go on a city tour with a horse-drawn carriage. Overnight-stay at the city-hotel Royalton.



9. day: (Bayamo / Santiago de Cuba - ca. 120 km)

From Bayamo you drive on at the Carretera Central through a nice and mountained landscape and over several lakes to Santiago de Cuba.
Santiago de Cuba – the capital of the Caribbean. 

Overnight-stay in a hotel of the city. 



10. day: (city tour Santiago de Cuba)

We recommend 2 days for Santiago de Cuba. One day is not enough to see all the sights. Santiago de Cuba – the capital of the Caribbean - nominated as cultural heritage of humanity by the UNESCO - is surrounded by wonderful mountains and bays. A site of expansive historical events. Here, the tutelary goddess, the virgin of the Caridad del Cobre, is worshipped. Santiago de Cuba is also called the most Caribbean city of the island and it´s also the place of two famous Cuban folk festivals, the unique carneval festival in july and the fire-festival.  

We recommend to visit: 
- The Céspedes-Parc
- Die fortress„San Pedro de la Roca del Morro“
- La Gran Pietra and the ruins of a coffee plantation 
- The history museum "July 26th”
- Tip: The famous music place “Casa de la Trova”. (The cultural heart of the city)

Overnight-stay in Santiago.


11. day: (Santiago de Cuba / Holguin - ca. 140 km)

With a heavy heart you will leave this coast and Santiago and go on crosswise through the country via Mella to Holguin . the capital of the correspondent province. 
The city Holguin is also called the „city of parcs“. The city shows a high Spanish influence with lots of wonderful buildings, it is astral and is characterized by lineal design and lay-out of the roads. There are several museums, very famous tobacco factories, and the music of Cuba is cultivated in a special way - we recommend a visitation of the Casa de la Trova. There you will find traditional forms of expressions of music and dance of the rural population. You should not miss the birthplace of Fidel Castro.
Tip for Holguin: Climb to the cross-viewpoint „La Loma de la Cruz“ with a breathtaking view. Beaches are in a distance of 50km at the northern beaches Guardalavaca, Playa Esmeralda and Playa Pesquero. For interested fans of the archaeological culture of Cuba, we recommend a visitation of the offshore cities Banes and Gibara (close to the landing point of Christopher Columbus 1492).  Overnight-stay at the very near-natural country-hotel Mirador de Mayabe, 8km outside of the city Stadt Holguin.



12. day: (Holguin / Ciego di Avila / Sancti Spiritus - ca. 400 km)

A territory with lots of lakes surrounds the by music and dance embossed city Ciego de Avila. The lovely Sancti Spiritus, today capital of the province, enchants with its colonial architecture and the nice flair. An excursion to the close-by lake would be nice. Overnight-stay in Sancti Spiritus.



13. day: (Sancti Spìritus / Trinidad - ca. 90 km)

From the historical capital of the province Sancti Spiritus to the colonial museum-city Trinidad.
At first stay on your route and drive through the Valle de los Ingenios and afterwards to the historical Manacas-Iznaga barracks or to the close-by mountains "Topes de Collantes" with beautiful views from the tops. Sancti Spiritus and Trinidad (Villa de la Santisima Trinidad de Cuba), are both world cultural heritage of the UNESCO. Trinidad has a medieval flair with arched bridges. This unique city does not only charm with its numerous sights and museums, timeless medieval squares, well preserved buildings with neoclassical and baroque influence, but also with the sea and the mountains. You will be excited!

Trinidad
Our Tip: In the afternoon you should drive to the beach Playa Ancon and discover the correspondent Pininsula with its small Cuban beachbars. In the evening go back for a ramble in Trinidad. Since Trinidad is located on a hill, it´s very romantical to spend the sunset with a Cuba Libre and Cuban live-music on the stairs at the market square. But if you prefer to stay at the beach, we recommend to spend the sunset also here in one of the Cuban beachbars. Overnight-stay in Trinidad in the Hotel Las Cuevas or Hostal La Ronda.



14. day: (Trinidad / Cienfuegos - ca. 90 km)

Cienfuegos- the pearl of the south offers its visitors not only the warm waters of the beaches Playa Inglés, Rancho Luna, Guajimico, but also the charme of a clean and lovely city. The nature of the close-by mountain mass of the Escambray with its cold waterfalls, invites to excursions. You will spend your last night of the journey in Cienfuegos. 



15. day: (Return-trip Cienfuegos / Havanna / Varadero - ca. 280 km)

Start very early in the morning. 
First you circle the bay of Cienfuegos on a distance of 38km and you get to the entrance of the sea, where the bay of Cienfuegos and the Fort Castillo de Jagua (one of the biggest colonial fortresses of Cuba) meet. From here you will go upcountry back on the highway to Playa Giron and to the Bay of Pigs. 

Bay of Pigs: Tip: Go for a swim in the crystalclear water of the sea-nature-pool „Caleta Buena“ at the coast of Giron. You should visit the invasion-museum at the Hotel Playa Giron. Very lovely are the Cenotes and fresh water-caves in the mangrove forests. From Playa Giron you go on along the bay of pigs, lined with interesting cliffy beaches and lots of sights, which commemorate the invasion of 1961

Tip: Guama, a place framed by lakes and canals. where the natives of Cuba had one of their most important sites, the village Aldea Taina. You should not miss a trip on the canals. Here you can also find a crocodile farm and a small zoo with rare animals. Later in the afternoon you will drive back on the highway A1 to Havana or Varadero. There you will drop off your rental car and either go on travelling or back home.
