8-day western cuba

Havana, Viñales, Bay of Pigs & Trinidad

A perfect week-long motorcycle tour of Western Cuba, this people-to-people program combines the best of Havana, tobacco country, and the Bay of Pigs, this sublime itinerary takes you through some of the most quintessentially beautiful of Cuban landscapes. We’ll visit the tobacco farms, of course… plus ride to the site of the 1961 CIA-sponsored invasion by Cuban exiles at the Bay of Pigs. Then visit the exquisite El Nicho waterfall at the base of the Sierra Escambray mountains… the giant monument, mausoleum, and museum dedicated to Che Guevara in Santa Clara… and on to the charming colonial city of Trinidad. Other highlights include a visit to Ernest Hemingway’s former home, Finca Vigía–now the Museo Ernest Hemingway.

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.
