Cuban Rhythms

For too many people, Cuba is nothing more than a beach resort. That’s crazy; the island practically buzzes with energy and you should do likewise—get moving. Journey through the culture-soaked streets of Trinidad and Old Havana for your fill of drinking and dancing. The music here pours out of open windows. Hit the beach and explore the outdoors then connect with the locals in homestays and make friends for life as you hit the sites with other young people like yourself. Boring? Impossible!

Arrive at any time.

Day 2-4 - Santa Clara/Trinidad
Stop by Santa Clara en route to Trinidad and visit important historical sites, including the famous Che monument. Orientation walk of Trinidad's beautiful centre. Learn some moves during a salsa dancing lesson and take in some live music at an evening out at the Casa de la Trova. Enjoy a home-cooked local group dinner hosted by one of the homestay families. With nearby national parks, a beach, bikes and more, there's plenty to keep you busy!
