You’ll get the chance to support the local community through various avenues, like choosing to stay in casas, using the services of the local guides, visiting local artists and buy their amazing paintings. It is a great way to positively impact the places you visit to. You may even find that you get to meet the people your stay supported, like the family of the casa owner, or the painter… and whilst you are there, feel free to have a chat! They are more than happy to tell you their stories and listen to yours.
Cuba is an amazing destination with a rich culture and heritage that has been preserved throughout time. When you join a small group tour, you get to explore several places. You will learn in depth history from your guides. They will take you to places on and off the beaten track for a great experience. You can enjoy the gorgeous (and at places crumbling) architecture of Havana, the colourful streets of Trinidad, the tobacco fields of Vinales, the mountains of Soroa and so much more.
Cuba has some of the best food in the world. Forget about bland and predictable tourist fare!!! Anyone who tells you that Cuban food is horrible, ever experienced any real Cuban food. Cuban cuisine is a vibrant mix of different cultures such as Spanish, African, Caribbean. You can expect to have a lot of pork as it is one of the staples. But imagine… that roast pork having been cooked on charcoal and just melting in your mouth. – I’m sorry my vegan friends! – There will also be rice, plantains and some form of salad with each meal.
