cafe havana

After lunch you will be able to have a detailed tour through Havana in your vintage car.
On said tour you visit the Cementerio Colon, the second largest graveyard of all of Latin America. On a round trip through the approximately 100.000 graves, of which 90% are made of marble, you will learn about many stories this museum graveyard holds. After that, the way leads across the place where the revolution took place, Revolution Square, with its memorial of freedom, an obelisk in the late art deco style.
This is where Fidel Castro used to hold his famous speeches that influenced world politics in front of the masses. As soon as it opens again (currently still closed) we can use the elevator. From here you have a fantastic view across the city. We continue on to the village San Francisco de Paula, where Hemingway used to have soughing parties with many famous greats from the movie scene, the mafia and even politicians in the 50s. Hemingway acquired this manor, the ‘Finca la Vijia’, with his Nobel prize for literature.
The former residence and its furniture survived the test of time really well and is nowadays the Hemingway Museum in Cuba. It can’t be entered but you can even see the writing instruments, many souvenirs brought back from various trips, as well as personal things from the life of the famous author through the open windows. (Closed on Sundays, holidays and when there is bad weather).

From there we continue on small roads and the city highway until we reach the fishing village Cojimar. This is the place where the great US American novelist and author Ernest Hemingway used to stay and listen to the tales his captain called Gregorio told him and then used those to write his nobel prize-winning novel ‘The Old Man and The Sea’. There will be a short stop at the Ernest Hemingway bar (drinks optional) and during a visit at the memorial located here you will learn many historic details about this famous man. Now we drive back along the Playas del Este, the eastern beaches of Havana and its seaside paradise where the natives who come here in Summer spend their holidays, all the way to the place Casablanca with its impressive statue of Christ. The wife of dictator Batista wanted to calm down the agitated and protesting people by ordering the erection of a replica of the statue of Christ of Rio on the elevated eastern bank of the seaport. It was not as big as the original but could be seen from all of central Havana. The place Casablanca is located opposite to the historic city center on the other bank of the port entrance. Here you have an unforgettable chance to take some pictures next to the Cristo de Habana. On the elevated deck next to the Cristo, you have a fantastic panorama view over the entire city center and the outskirts, the port entrance and a part of the harbor, the fort El Morro and the Malecon and also the seaside promenade of Havana. Here you can also clearly see why the city was built in this location and why Havana is the most important Pass-Through-Port for the gold of the new world.

havana
We underpass the port in a tunnel and drive along the Malecon into the city center of Vedado and then stop at the Hotel Nacional with its gorgeous park. From the 33rd floor of the Focsa and the highest building of the city, we can provide a breathtaking view over the skyline of Havana. On a drive through the green lung of Havana with its many parks, we can show you the Miramar district in which 90% of the embassies are located. Most of them are situated in the countless beautiful mansions.
Here, we visit the famous artist Jose Fuster in his Mosaic-Street. He created a tribute to the Gaudí in Barcelona with his mosaic art. At the end of our tour we drive through the Sybone district, which is a suburb of Havana that is often compared to Beverly Hills. Afterwards we will reach your accommodation which is where the 5 – 6 hour long tour ends and also where you will be able to say that you experienced and got to know Havana for certain.
Note: The tour does not take place in a particular order and during Winter the program is subject to change due to the days being shorter. Please note that the statehouse, the Partagas cigar factory and the obelisk/tower at the Plaza de la Revolucion cannot be visited for an indefinite time due to renovations and reconstruction measures. The Hemingway museum, the Finca La Vijia, is closed on Sundays and in case of bad weather.
Accommodation: Casa Particular B&B, Dinner.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
Tip for the evening: Attendance of the famous cannon shot ceremony, port closes at 09:00 pm (Optional and can be booked on site).

Day 3: Havana - Pinar del Río - Viñales
Breakfast. At 08:00 am the trip towards west Cuba, into the province Pinar del Rio will start.
First we quickly drive the 150 km straight to Pinar del Rio, the capital of the province with the same name. Short tour through the town Pinar del Rio. Visit of the cigar factory Francisco Donatien and the liquor factory Guayabita a bit further outside the city (in case both are open, closed on Sundays and holidays). After having had a look at these sights the trip goes into the wonderful tropical landscape of Viñales.
You drive through the surrounding tobacco growing areas into the magnificent Viñales Valleys with the tropical mountains of the karstic valleys of the Sierra de los Organos. After that the way leads right into the tropical natural landscape of the mountain peaks of the Mogotes protected by the UNESCO.

They are remnants of gigantic collapsed caves of long forgotten times.

Short break
Afterwards and without a particular order, we will have stops to take pictures at interesting Mogotes and the lovely sights of the area.

Day 4: Viñales - Cueva de los Portales - Soroa - Havana
Breakfast. At 08:00 am we depart towards Soroa. First we will lead you through an impressively captivating landscape of the tropical mountain range, Sierra de los Organos, including breathtaking views from the heights of the foothills. Along the way we will reach another highlight of our trip which is the cave of Che, la Cueva de los Portales.

This is the place where Ernesto Che Guevara and his loyals were hiding during the revolution’s battles. This huge cave and rock labyrinth in an idyllic location is a very impressive natural monument which you will gaze upon.
As we continue we will pass through the national park La Guira towards San Diego de los Banos, which is a Cuban health spa with old healing springs that have been visited since colonial times. In the time before the revolution many mafioso greats and rich habaneros, as well as American tourists used to come here to relax and take cures. Today this remains an interesting place, still worth seeing but barely retained as the past greatly chipped away at it. From San Diego we head into the Sierra del Rosario, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, into the Soroa Natural Park.
Soroa is named after the Frenchman Jean Pierre Soroa who managed a big coffee plantation here in the 19th century. This nature park is famous for its fabulous tropical mountain landscape. Together, we will visit the orchid garden which holds more than 700 different orchid subspecies of which many are endemic and greatly photogenic. During May to October you can gaze upon the gorgeous waterfall Salto de Arcoiris (up to 21 m high) since it carries a lot of water.

After this lovely day amongst the natural landscapes of west Cuba we head back to Havana. Dinner will be at the accommodation of a Paladar (Private Restaurant).

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Havana, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

Tip for the evening: Attendance of the famous cannon shot ceremony, port closes at 09:00 pm (Optional and can be booked on site).

Day 5: Havana - Guamá - Cienfuegos
Breakfast. At 08:00 am, departure to the south coast of Cuba. First our way leads us to the highway A1. The country’s modern eight-lane main road called Carretera Nacional A1, or also Ochovia, goes all the way to Jagüey Grande where we take a turn to the natural park Montemar and the peninsula Cienaga de Zapata, which has a wide swampy natural reserve at the south coast.
From here we continue on to La Boca and the Laguna del Tosora, to the treasure lake and the biggest settlement of the natives, the Taino village Guamá. On a boat, you will then have an excursion on the lagoon’s lake Guama (treasure lake).

Spread across multiple islands in the lake, there is a village where the already extinct Cuban Taino Indians were recreated. The statues in their lifelike size will give you an impression of how the natives used to live on Cuba in this outdoor museum.
As we come back from this excursion, you will get to know the Cuban crocodile at the nearby crocodile farm. To increase the population of the endemic Cuban crocodiles again, they are raised here and then set free in the mangrove swamp.
Further down the road we will visit the south coast as well as the seaport Cienfuegos, the Pearl of the South. Short sightseeing tour through the city Cienfuegos.
The streets of Cienfuegos are arranged like a chess board. Enough space doesn’t seem to have been a problem 250 years ago when the city was founded. The beautiful and interesting architecture is a late French, colonial neoclassicistic style and is from the beginning of the 19th century. The most famous singer from Cuba, Benny Morey, was also born, and lived in Cienfuegos and you are reminded of his remembrance everywhere in the city.

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Cienfuegos, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

Tip for the evening: Evening stroll along the Malecon (Seaside Promenade) of Cienfuegos.

Day 6: Cienfuegos - El Nicho - Trinidad
Breakfast. At 08:00 am, right after breakfast we head to the 150 year old Terry Theater where you can take pictures. Then we go the promontory Punta Gorda where the city reaches far into the harbor of Cienfuegos and where a residential district for rich people developed before the revolution. There are still some old colonial wooden houses which could be ordered from a catalog in the USA around 100 years ago. The large old mansions still show quite some signs from that time. The former palace-like house of the rich colonial De Valle family really stands out here. For the construction of a building in the Moorish style, specialists from Morocco were brought in. We will also visit the Palacio de Valle which is a restaurant today. You have an unforgettable view across the port and the city Cienfuegos from the deck with your cocktail in your hand. From here you can also see the unfinished ruin of the only Russian nuclear reactor on Cuban soil in the distance. Even the rusted construction cranes can be seen from here. The USA is very worried about this reactor in their backyard even though it was never finished nor operated. There is a further great stop for taking pictures at the graveyard with the small Greek replica of the Parthenon.

cienfuegos

The drive from Cienfuegos to Trinidad leads down a very busy but narrow street and through the foothills of the ‘Montanas Guamuhaya’ mountains and Escambray. As soon as we will have reached the village San Francisco there is going to be an excursion into the tropical mountains.
On narrow and partly steep and curvy mountain roads we head into the heart of the Montanas de Guamuhaya, to the nature park and the waterfall in El Nicho. Lunch will be at a local restaurant.

We will go on a short walk into the cool climate of the flat waterfalls under which you can also take a bath. Enjoy the cool climate along the waterfalls and go for a swim in one of the natural ponds if you so desire. So don’t forget to bring solid shoes and your swimsuit. From here the way leads to Trinidad, a colonial city protected by the UNESCO as a Legacy of Mankind.

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Trinidad, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
Evening stroll through Trinidad and dinner will be at a local private restaurant.

Tip for the evening: In multiple restaurants and bars across the city Cuban live music is played. A visit at the Casa de la Trova is highly recommended as old and young bands play Cuban music there and Cubans as well as foreign visitors come here to dance. (Optional)

Day 7: Trinidad – Valley of the Sugar Mills - Trinidad
Breakfast. At 08:00 am we will visit the historic center of Trinidad. The streets with their old cobblestone pavements and the colonial buildings are some of the few things that survived the test of time in this well-preserved colonial town from the Latin America of the 1800s. This picturesque museum scenery basically invites you in for a wonderful walk with sheer endless opportunities to take lots of pictures. Time has completely stopped here. You indulge in a movie setting of a Mexican vintage movie about the revolution. The city became really wealthy during the 18th century as an export harbor for sugar when it was still located directly at the seaside. It used to thrive due to the fertile plain, the Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Mills), located between the Escambray mountains and the coast. We will have a short look at the museums for colonial architecture and art, the Alexander von Humboldt Museum for Nature Studies and the so called Museo Romantico, where you can see how Trinidad’s sugar barons used to live a long time ago.
In the city’s old center, we scale the rooftop deck in the municipal museum (Palacio Cantero) and from there we have the best view over the city and its surroundings.

museo romantico trinidad

Further down the road of our trip, the way leads us through the Valley of the Sugar Mills, Valle de los Ingenios, all the way to the town Manaca Iznaga and the 45 meter tall historic slave tower Iznaga. If entering is possible, we will climb up the tower for a breathtaking vista of the surrounding area. Alternatively, we can take a quick break at the overlook on top of a hill next to the street with a lovely panorama view encompassing the valley at the Mirador del Valle.

Subsequently, we return to Trinidad, where you can explore the city all by yourself in the evening.

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Trinidad, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

Tip for the evening: Stroll through the city and visit the famous bars around the market square. (Optional)

sugar mill valley

Day 8: Trinidad - Santa Clara
Breakfast approximately 08.30 am. Today we continue on to Santa Clara, the capital of the province with the same name. In the ‘City of Che‘ we visit the ‘Plaza de Revolucion‘ with the memorial of Che Guevara.
His mortal remains were conveyed from the Bolivian jungle and laid to rest in the mausoleum together with his last allies’ a few years ago. For the Cuban revolution, this has become a sacred place. Santa Clara is known as the City of Che. This is where the legendary guerilla leader Ernesto Che Guevara fought the battle, that lead the rebels to the victory over the tyranny of the Fugenico Batista, which was sped up when he blew up his armored train ‘Tren Blindado’ that was loaded with a lot of weaponry in 1958.

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Santa Clara, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

santa clara

Day 9: Santa Clara - Elguea - Jovellanos - Matanzas
Breakfast. At 08:00 am our trip starts in Santa Clara and we drive through the villages until we reach the Carretera Central. We drive along this road all the way to Colon and then continue on the worthwhile ramble route along the north coast to Sagua la Grande. From there the way goes on on the Carretera del Norte to the health spa Banos de Elguea with a beautiful coastal atmosphere. There are sulphuric healing springs and if requested, a specialist can tell you about the effect of the springs and what a bath or a fango pack can do for you. As a trial you can either take a healing bath in the spa hotel or you can have a pack made for you (exclusive, optional).
We continue on the Carretera del Norte to Maximo Gomez and there we also cross the highway until we reach the Carretera Central. After that comes Matanzas, which has us passing through Jovellanos. Before we reach the second largest seaport of Cuba, we travel through Limonar all the way to the town Guanabana. Here, a rural road leads right into the inside of the village Cidra. A very important memorial of the history of slavery in Cuba is located here. Beside an impressive memorial for the slave who led a slave riot, in which she died, you can especially see the well-preserved ruins of the sugar mill Triumvirato which was destroyed completely by the slaves during the uprising in the 19th century. Right before we reach Matanzas, we visit the unmissable limestone cave Bellamar in case it’s open. After the long drive, this is a perfect opportunity to cool down. In Matanzas there is a pharmacy and a fort with a slavery museum, both really worth seeing. Matanzas used to be the most important harbor for slave imports in Cuba and the new world. Here there were many slave riots that were brutally quelled by the Spaniards. Matanzas owes its name to the slaughtering of the slaves. We stay in Matanzas.

Accommodation: Casa Particular (Private Guest House) in Metanzas, B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

Tip for the evening: The Malecon at the huge Bahia of Matanzas basically invites you for an evening stroll. And a special program includes the highly recommended visit of the Tropicana Matanzas revue (45 CUC), located right beside the Hotel Canimao which lies 8km outside of Matanzas facing Varadero. (exklusive, optional, bookable on site)

Day 10: Matanzas - Yumuri - Jibacoa - Guanabo - Havana
Breakfast. At 8:30 am in the morning we depart towards Havana. Between Matanzas and Havana the fruitful and agriculturally active valley called Valle de Yumuri as well as the low mountain range Alturas de Madruga y Coliseo are located. Now we take a detour to the Montserrat lookout located on a hill at the edge of the seaport. From here you will have a beautiful view over the city, the port, the sea and the fruitful Yumuri Valley. A chapel to worship the black maiden of Montserrat was built on top of a hill above Metanzas by North-Spanish immigrants from Catalonia. To get into Yumuri Valley, we have to follow the way which goes between mountains, leads you down along a river and also the railroad tracks. Near the village Arcos de Canasi, we come back onto the Via Blanca, the so called main road that leads all the way to Havana along the coastline. Then we take a well-deserved break at the lookout of the largest and highest highway bridge in Cuba, the Bacunayagua. Not only is the view incredible, but also always freshly made Pina Colada. They say it’s the best one in all of Cuba! (Optional)
Lunch at a restaurant in Santa Cruz del Norte.

Santa Cruz del Norte is also where the biggest rum distillery in Cuba is located, it belongs to the Havana Club. During a short stop here you can have a look at the rum factory and take pictures.
As we continue, we will reach the Playas del Este, the beaches of Havana. Here we take a short detour to the feisty places Guanabo and Santa Maria del Mar. Already rather quickly we make our way towards the island’s capital La Habana now. Before reaching the entrance to the port of Havana, we pass through the tunnel that leads into the historic city center under the port’s entrance.
The tunnel under the port was built by a French company before the revolution and for many Cubans it is a landmark of corruption and unjust enrichment politics of the old rulers and the American mafia which used to reside here.
First, the almost worthless plot located north east of the port, which is only very hard to reach from the city that lies south of the bay, was bought up extremely cheap. Then, by the tunnel that was built, the plot gained in worth massively, whereof the rulers and mafias benefitted and a new coastal road, the Via Blanca, was built all the way to Varadero. After that a completely new city district was constructed for expensive mansions at wide Avenidas. The revolution stopped the project and it constructed a Cuban variant of social housing with multistory simple apartment blocks on parcels of land already prepared for constructions. They were a convenient home for many thousands of families right at the edge of the capital.
Now, multiple city districts emerged through the development of the tunnel in the north east. Today, these city districts are called Blanca, Alamar and Habana del Este.
Now you return to Havana.
Accommodation: Casa Particular B&B.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
