Self drive Cuba family holiday tailormade
With everything taken care of, just pop your kids and your bags into the car and go. As the itinerary is tailor made, there are no age limits; bring your toddler - and his granny.
Cuban culture is particularly welcoming to children, you may find your kids end up learning more Spanish than you! There are guided walks, and horseback rides, waterfalls and boat tours - and free time factored in for building sandcastles on the beach. You'll also have the peace of mind that assistance - if needed - is just a phone call away. Find related sample itinerary in the next tab.
Our top tip:Homestays are recommended over hotels - particularly if you request to stay with families with children of a similar age to yours.
Cuba holiday, small group tours tailormade
Meeting the authentic Cuba, with activities as walking in the mountains, beach life, salsa classes, horse riding, snorkelling, diving, catamaran trip, nightlife and learning Spanish.
Cuba is a beautiful island surrounded by sandy beaches, coral reefs and blue waters. It has a very specific vibration of its own - the Cuban people show a playfulness and a joy which is remarkable. They celebrate life with humor, love and passion. The nature on Cuba is still very pure, the people a discovery, which make Cuba the most interesting destination of the Caribbean.
Roundtrip over Cuba from West to East, with expert tourleader and mainly with private taxi transfers, staying in boutique homestay in Havana at beginning and end and the rest local casas particulares to connect with the real Cuban life. Private Minivan transfers with your own driver have as great advantage that we will make beach & snorkeling stops along the way, that we can enjoy more of the real Cuba and that we have more freedom than with a regular bus trip. We drive eg. via Bay of Pigs where buses drive over the highway.
This is a holiday of 19 days traveling from West to East Cuba with your tourguide. Departures can be on any day with a min of 4-6 pax, with the travelparty organised by your own. It is a roundtrip out of thousands where you can still see and experience the authentic and sensual Cuba before it is too late to experience it as it is. You are taken into the real Cuba by your tour guide, meet locals on our day walks, excursions and we will enjoy the Cuban nightlife with salsa. We go one day in the mountains at Sierra Escambray to have the experience of being fully in the subtropical Cuban nature and see the local coffee culture. In Baracoa we will visit local farmers and their cacoa and coconut plantations while we walk through the amazing landscapes. Daywalks are easy and only when there have been tropical rain showers the paths in the mountains may become slippery and the level may change from easy to easy/moderate depending on your walking skills.
This itinery or an adapted version is also possible for 2 persons (or more) in selfdrive format, with or without a guide, or with a guide and driver, all with local guides waiting for you at each location.
Extra activities are organized by your tour leader as salsa classes, horseback riding, gourmet dinners at the best paladares / restaurants with the best lobster, mojito or veggie foods, cooking classes and going out at night, it will be an amazing Cuba holiday. You may improve your Spanish at the same time as you will have plenty of opportunities to chat with the locals and homestay families. Your tour leader has guided around 40 trips over Cuba the last 12 years and is an expert on nature and culture of this fascinating island in the Caribbean. Cuba has become like a family for your guide and it is not unlikely that you might experience the same. It is a special opportunity to travel with your guide and to be invited to take part in the Cuban rhytm and musica cubana on all parts of the island! This trip is for all ages from young to old, families with children, couples and singles alike. We have several free moments and the program can always be modified to specific needs and wishes on location between the traveling moments. This trip is mostly with private minivan taxis but can also be done all in style with classical American cars out of the 50's on one stretch of the itinery or through the whole of Cuba ! The quote will have to be adapted then a little as only 3 - 4 persons enter in a Vintage car with luggage.
In case of a specific request for a tailor made Grouptravel the itinery can be made according to the travel wishes of the party involved. Holiday extensions with beachlife and/or scuba diving before or after the trip are possible at eg Maria la Gorda, Isla de Juventud, Varadero, Havana, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco or Cayo Largo. This trip or an adapted version is also possible as individual holiday for 2 persons (or more) as selfdrive, travel by taxis or by regular bus, all with local guides waiting for you at each location. PREMIUM TRAVEL: same or different itinery with a PRIVATE GUIDE - DRIVER, please contact us for a chat on Skype or Viber and ask for a quote.

Most common travel options on Cuba for individual travelers are: 1) selfdrive with rental car, 2) travel by bus Viazul / Transtur with use of local taxis, 3) all transfers by private taxi transfers (for larger travelparties up to 7 persons these are with minivan taxis); it is possible to have a guide traveling with you all the time in this way but this is not necessary as local guides can be arranged waiting for you at all the locations of the excursions, this depends on your preferences; some larger trajects can be done by regular bus if requested to save on costs; further on some trajects we can arrange taxi transfers or day excursions with American Vintage cars, 4a) rent your own car and have a private guide as guide - driver, or 4b) rent your own car, drive yourself but accompanied by a guide. All guides who accompany you on a travel are official licensed guides.

Scuba diving & Cuba roundtour tailormade

Throw in a catamaran excursion, a tobacco farm, a mountain trek and some communist history - and that's Cuba all wrapped up. Find related sample itinerary in the next tab.

International Festival De Coros - Santiago De Cuba
