Depart or Continue Your Journey
Today you may return to the airport in Holguin in time for mid-day flights home, or continue with us for one of our extensions to explore Havana or Cuba’s natural and revolutionary history in our signature, active style.
HAVANA EXTENSION (ADD $990 PER PERSON):
For those choosing to extend their time in Cuba, we offer a 3-day continuance that includes a visit to Havana. In such cases, we board an early morning charter flight that transports you from Santiago to Havana. Upon arrival, we claim our bags before heading out into the city. After our time in Cuba’s wild and agricultural east, Havana’s palpable energy offers a completely different view of Cuban culture.
PART II – Your choice of two itineraries that are offered on alternating trips.
We offer two versions of Part II, alternating between trips. Both are 6-day/5-night adventures. We call one of these Cuba’s Wild East, as our focus is on hiking and exploring Alexander Humboldt National Park as well as the town of Baracoa. This itinerary follows the perimeter of the island, circling back to two nights in Santiago de Cuba. Our other option is the Origins of the Revolution, and visits the Castro’s birthplace and the mountains of the Sierra Maestra where the Revolution took hold. This trip also includes time in Santiago de Cuba. Both end in Holguin and both offer an extension to Havana if desired.
Note: The listed activities and itinerary below may undergo some changes as they are contingent upon factors such as the availability of guest speakers, weather, and transportation. In such cases, we always attempt to substitute similar activities that maintain our tour’s focus of Educational Exchange and People-to-People encounters and further your Cuban experience. Also, in regards to specific accommodations listed below, due to the easing of travel restrictions for US citizens traveling to Cuba, and continued visitation from the rest of the world, hotel demand exceeds supply. This is most acute in Havana. We provide our rooming lists to our Cuban partners several months in advance of each tour and update them as people add. We are never assured of final confirmation of hotels until 30-60 days prior to trip departure and even then, reservations may change. While we realize this uncertainty is not ideal, it is beyond our control. We do our best to secure quality accommodations that are of moderate quality, but note that we are not using any Cuban-rated 5-star hotels.
