In this tour, you’ll learn about the history of the country’s architecture while visiting the cities of Havana, Matanzas and Cienfuegos.

Cubans take enormous pride in their cultural heritage and clearly consider throwing a great party to be part of that tradition. Carnivals are lauded as the most long-standing and most popular festival of this jovial and musical nation, and they go all out in the months of July and August with parades, street parties, colorful costumes, wild dancing, conga lines, fireworks and traditional music. The fun and frolics reach high levels over weekends when the locals put their toil and troubles away and bring out the rum. Carnival comes with some fun traditions, like the carrying of huge effigies of well-known people paraded along the coastal road, the Malecon, and the gaudy ‘faroleros,’ decorated lamp posts carried aloft by dancers.
Varadero is known for its beautiful beaches and natural attractions such as caves and cays and there are more than fifty species of coral and hundred species of fish thriving here.

Trinidad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, is the fourth of the seven cities founded by Diego de Velasquez in 1514 as a base for expeditions into the “New World” and it’s the second city you’ll visit during this tour. Today it is maintained as a living museum, just as the Spaniards left it in its period of greatest opulence. It is the crown jewel of Cuba’s colonial cities.
