Havana Package

December 17 - 21 

Hello, 

Again thank you for considering traveling with us to Habana. It is truly one of our favorite destinations, and I hope it will be one of your as well.

 

I have put together a high level plan/proposal for your trip. A couple options for accommodation, and a list of activities that can be planned for a 4 nights/5 days trip.   With this plan, you will be able to experience the city and its art, visit tabaco plantations and a rum factory, and simply enjoy your time in Cuba.   

Possible Itinerary 

This is a proposal created based on your input. We can modify activities, combine them, or create complete new ones based on your interests

 

Day One - Monday - Dec 17th 

  • 01:35 PM - Arrival - Our driver will be waiting for you at the airport to drive you to your accommodation at Villegas 425 apt 9, entre Muralla y Teniente Rey, 50 m de Plaza del Cristo . Our host will be there to help you check in.

  • 04:00 PM - Classic Riding - Enjoy the beauty of Habana onboard a beautiful convertible American Classic car. This is experience is led by our favorite and most wanted guide. He knows about history and fun facts.  He will take you to multiple points of interest and some of his favorite spots too. 

Day Two - Tuesday - Dec 18th

  • 08:00 AM  - Viñales - Breathtaking views, prehistoric sites, coffee/tobacco fields, organic farms, and other natural wonders made Viñales an UNESCO World Heritage site. Viñales is a complete paradise ready to welcome visitors, and what better way to explore it than on a horse.  Leave the house early in the morning, and be welcomed in Viñales by our local guide who will have your horses ready.  Some of the options are visiting tabaco plantations, learn about beekeeping in the area, swim in a local lake, ride near the famous mogotes, and more.  You decide the route. Note: We can also do this in a car if horse back riding is not for you.
