This delightful discovery holiday highlights Cuba's colourful history, whilst also providing a taste of the vibrant culture that makes the island so special today. Sightseeing in Havana in a classic American car is a great way to start, with visits to museums and a rum factory. Heading west, we spend time in the ‘garden state' of Pinar del Rio, with its fields of tobacco and pretty fishing villages, such as Puerto Esperanza. Short walks enable us to make the most of the places we visit, such as the Sierra del Escambray, Parque Guanayara and Topes de Collantes. During our journey, we have the chance to see the mausoleum of Che Guevara at Santa Clara and to take a boat ride on Lake Hanabanilla. A day's relaxation on the tropical white sand beaches at Playa Ancon, followed by a city tour amongst the Spanish colonial architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Trinidad, rounds off a very special experience.
