Not a holiday, more of an education, as expected. Cuba is gradually coming out of sanctions but the scars are still everywhere. The country is not ready for the growing number of western tourists starting to come.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Jaqueline for her feedback, although we regret that the number of clients in her group exceeded the usual group size. Instances of this nature are rare, however we would like to explain that towards the end of 2015 Exodus changed computer reservation systems and during the changeover process, all our bookings were migrated from our old reservations system to the new system. For the most part this has been a smooth process, but on this occasion bookings were taken in the cross over period before all the clients who had been booked on our previous system had been migrated across; as a result our new system did not show that the trip had reached full capacity so the group size was slightly larger than usual, for which we would like to apologise. We would like to confirm that this only impacted a handful of departures and we do hope that despite the group size Jaqueline enjoyed the trip overall.

This holiday included a variety of activities and locations which gave a flavour of the country. Given the pressure on the island as tourist numbers increase, without the accompanying infrastructure, the accommodation was better than I had anticipated. The range of trips was good with potential to choose other options. Plenty of advice was given regarding the best places to eat and visit in free time.

This tour, A Taste of Cuba, did what it said on the tin. It provided an introduction to the country, mainly the western part and La Havana.

A showcase of the contrasting landscapes this vibrant but rather relaxed island has to offer: - Vinales, the farmer seated on his cart drawn by horned white oxen along near empty roads, the musical vibes of the colourful houses of Trinidad spilling out onto intimate cobbled streets - the stately colonial style of Cienfuegos and the stunning sunset over the bay from the rooftop of the Palacio sipping the best Mojitos, the solemnity of the mausoleum at Santa Clara and the fine restoration work already extensively underway in Old Havana but so fascinating to see the juxtaposition of the crumbling, dilapidated but often still inhabited old buildings interspersed with the restorations, and, of course, old cars everywhere! I feel I should add that after much I have read about the repetitive nature of the cuisine, I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of dishes and the delicious seasonal produce. Lobsters were succulent and meaty and the chicken so full of flavour. potatoes, I was informed, were out of season so not available but yam and pumpkin were plentiful.

Taste of Cuba - Delicious!

I have been all over the world on many trips over the last 40 years or so but I think this was one of the very best I have been on. Cuba is a fascinating country and the Exodus itinerary really showed it off to it's best considering we had just 8 days on the island. The accommodation ranged from Comfortable to Amazing, the food, (despite what most people said before we went) was more than plentiful and of good quality, in fact we were fed too much!

The title of the trip totally sums it up: every experience you could want from this country is either included in the tour or available to add on. Cigar-rolling, mojito-making (and drinking!), salsa dancing, horse riding, Caribbean snorkelling, 1950s Caddie-driving... it's all here - and then some. Yes, the pace is full on - but hey, isn't that what a holiday experience is all about?

A Taste of Cuba

A great insight into a rapidly changing country

I'm really pleased I got to see Cuba before it changes too much. While you can see the commercialism is starting to creep in, it still feels like it has been stuck in a time warp. It is an interesting place, though I have to say that for me Havana was by far my favourite. It is worth seeing it before it changes too much, but you can also see some incredible buildings that are ripe for development.
