Trekking Highlights of Cuba

Trekking Highlights of Cuba

Overall, this was a great trip. We saw a lot of Cuba, our group was great and got on well, and Cuba is a fascinating country with a lot of very interesting post WW2 history. Cuba is already changing fast and in Havana in particular there seemed to be more tourists than locals - however elsewhere we were often off the beaten track and I really enjoyed that. There was one big negative - I felt that some of the hiking was well beyond a Level 3. I try to avoid extended steep descents and always intended to sit out the 'optional day' (very much the right decision for me), and I found Day 6 (3km of continuous steep descent) too tough to be enjoyable. If you are a good solid "level 2 walker" who occasionally enjoys a Level 3 day, you might find some of this too tough.

I chose this trip to see as much of the island as possible and to walk in its various lanscapes, even if this did mean some long bus journeys. The trip lived up entirely to my expectations and it was great too to see the colonial architecture, faded though it often was, and to visit some of the historical sites (the visit to the armoured train museum in Santa Clara had been deleted from the current trip notes [though it is mentioned], but we persuaded our guide to take us there anyway). It was good to be able to immerse oneself in the history of the country and to interact with the locals.

Great trip and an amazing country! It is sunny, friendly, vibrant with bright colours, music and art, delicious papayas and mangos, pina coladas served in a pint glass, streets full of Rickshaw taxis and palms tree adding to the tropical holiday feel.

The trip was all that it promised to be, visiting all the places we had read about and finally all 16 in the group managing the 2 day ascent of Turquino. It was a good group and we all got on well togerher. Our biggest thanks must go to group leader Tony and bus driver Luis. They could not do enough for us and took good care of everyone.

A fascinating but hectic experience of both nature and culture.  The walking becomes increasingly more challenging despite relatively modest distances.  I found the trip to be quite expensive with a good proportion of meals not included and little opportunity to fend for yourself.

A trip incorporating some very tough walks, early mornings and long days. Unfortunately, for me, not as enjoyable as I had hoped although Cuba as a country is great. Whole trip felt quite hectic - read the trip notes carefully!

Amazing introduction to Cuba - its people, history, scenery, music and rum! Couldn't have been a better mixture of walking, eating, drinking, chatting, sightseeing - perfect!
