We will be visiting Castillo de San Pedro del Morro, this fortress is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. This huge fortress, at the entrance to the Bay of Santiago, lies about 10 kilometers southwest of Santiago de Cuba. This fortress was designed to protect against pirate attacks, but it also served as a prison in the late 1700’s. It contains a small naval museum with displays on piracy and the history of the area. We will then be visiting Cementerio de Santa Ifigenia cemetery to observe some of the most beautiful burial crypts in Cuba. We will learn about Jose Marti, a Cuban National Hero, and witness the changing of the guard at his tomb. We will then experience the Diego Velazquez House and Museum, this structure is the oldest still standing example of colonial style architecture in Cuba today. We will have a light lunch at a local Palador. (family restaurant) After lunch there will be plenty of free time to explore Old Santiago on your own.
Depart by coach to Trinidad. A meticulously well preserved Spanish colonial city, with its rich architecture, cobblestone streets, palaces and plazas, Trinidad is sometimes referred to as the “museum city of Cuba”. Walk through the town with a representative of the Office of the City Historian, interacting with artisans and visiting with locals. At the Romantic Museum, we envision life in the 18th century through its furniture and decorative arts. Enjoy lunch in a Paladar,(a family owned restaurant with homemade Cuban food). In the afternoon, there is time to explore on your own.
Cuba's so-called Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South) has long seduced travelers from around the island with its elegance, enlightened French spirit and feisty Caribbean panache. If Cuba has a Paris, this is most definitely it. Arranged around the country's most spectacular natural bay, Cienfuegos is a nautical city with an enviable waterside setting. Founded in 1819, it's one of Cuba's newest settlements, but also one of its most architecturally interesting, a factor that earned it a Unesco World Heritage Site listing in 2005. Geographically, the city is split into two distinct parts: the colonnaded central zone with its elegant Paseo del Prado (commonly shortened to Prado) and Parque Martí; and Punta Gorda, a thin knife of land slicing into the bay with a clutch of eclectic early 20th-century palaces, including some of Cuba's prettiest buildings.
Note: arriving in Havana early evening.
World known rhythms such as Mambo and Cha-cha-cha originated in Cuba; as well as the first known Salsa called “Echale Salsita” (Spice it up a little) recorded back in the 1930s. Following breakfast, guests will disembark and begin their cultural exploration of this beautiful city by foot through the atmospheric squares of ‘Havana Viejo’, calling on artists in their studios as we pass. Visit Hotel Ambos Mundos, where Ernest Hemingway kept a room for years. The hotel served as a refuge for writing such works as “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and a base for frequenting his favorite bars. At the end of the tour guests will check into hotel in Havana for an overnight stay.We encourage guests to enjoy an evening performance at the historical Tropicana Theater or alternatively stroll to nearby Café Taberna, where one can enjoy Cuban music by the famed Buena Vista Social Club.
