12-day western & central cuba

HAVANA, VIÑALES, BAY OF PIGS, SANTA CLARA, TRINIDAD & BEACH RESORTS

Cuba expert and motojournalist Christopher P.  Baker has designed the perfect 12-day motorcycle tour itinerary of Western & Central Cuba, including the Bay of Pigs, plus Santa Clara–with its close association with revolutionary and motorcyclist Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara (remember Motorcycle Diaries?). We’ll also visit the Comandancia de Che (his former headquarters), plus Cuevas de los Portales (a giant cave where Che headquartered during the Cuban Missile Crisis), along with the enchanting colonial city of Trinidad,  the snow-white beaches of Cayo Santa María and Varadero, and the exquisite tobacco country around Viñales.

Fly in early and/or extend your visit using an individual “people-to-people” license to explore Havana in greater detail on your own self-guided itinerary.
