DOMITILLE’S TRIP TO CUBA.

7 NIGHTS/4 STOPS 

 

Cultural highlights, Cuban lifestyle and discovery of unspoiled nature:
We were seduced by the “Cubans” and their way of life. They are welcoming as hosts and great cooks. They have been used to live in rather precarious live conditions and therefore they are very resourecful. We loved the nature and the landscapes, the colonial ambiance in towns. We also managed to do several beautiful hikes in a magnificent nature.

  • We stayed in a great B&B, Hostal Yelenis.  The owner is a good cook, so you can have your dinner there (Lobster perfectly cooked). Excellent breakfast and nice view over Trinidad and the sea from the terrace..  
  • Visit the colonial city of Trinidad and its museums.

    Take a day trip to Topes de Collantes, a nature reserve park in the Escambray Mountains range in Cuba

    El Valle de los Ingenios: Take a day tour! 

    Take a Salsa class. Just ask your hosts and they will indicate a place to take a class.

    We recommend to take a day trip out to Playa Ancon. This breathtaking peninsula is only 7 miles from the city center of Trinidad and well worth the ride.

GOOD TO KNOW
  • When you live in the US, you need to travel to Cuba under one of the 12 allowed categories. Check this website for more information:
    https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/country/cuba.html 
    You can also contact our team at discover@triptam.com
  • A visa is required. Check with the Cuban embassy in function of your nationality. As a French citizen, we bought our Visa directly at the airport. 
  • Car rental is a good idea. Book it before departure.
  • Don’t forget to bring CASH for your trip. € are more popular than $.
  • The Highway is in good very conditions and it is easy to go from one place to another. They are nearly no cars on the Highway.
  • The food served in the casa particulares is very good, especially the breakfast. There are plenty of fruit variety and seafood to be found.
  • Cubans will put a lot of effort to make the best out of your stay. They love to talk about their past history.
  • You drink Mojitos at any time of the day 🙂
