A full-on journey through an extremely interesting country, visiting historic towns, beautiful coastlines and stunning mountain scenery, liberally sprinkled with tremendous local hospitality always accompanied by rum, music and dancing!

If you want an overview of the whole island, including insights into the fascinating history and culture, as well as sampling the laid back Cuban lifestyle of music, salsa dancing and mohitos, then this is the trip for you.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Be prepared for a tough couple of days travelling on arrival, after that it's great. It's a wonderful country and those changes really are starting to happen, my advice is go!

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

An amazing adventure covering the many highlights this country has to offer. One of the best Exodus trips I have been on.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Cuba wasn't quite as I had expected. I didn't realise how big the island was, so there was a lot of time spent on the coach the first week, and how poor and run down many places are.  In retrospect, I might have just chosen the shorter tour and had a week relaxing on the beach and soaking up a bit more of the atmosphere in Havana. But I did love all the rum cocktails, we even had rum in the fruit juice drink at the rest stops en route, and we did see most of the island.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

You can't please all the people all the time, but this tour makes a good attempt at it.  A lot of mileage in order to cover as much as possible of this very interesting country, with a very good guide and driver in a fairly new, air-conditioned, comfortable Chinese bus.  The activities were good, we heard a lot of good Cuban music, most of the accomodation was good and the food very good (it appears to have improved a lot), especially in the paladares (private restaurants).  No complaints.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

It is the sum of the whole parts rather than any single aspect that makes this trip special. Witnessing how the island and its people have responded to Castro and the earlier colonial history is a real eye opener, and makes for a truly fascinating and rewarding experience.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

The light, the colour, the music, the sheer variety of the countryside - and of course those beaches.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

A fantastic introduction to this lovely country. We were well treated by friendly and welcoming people who wanted us to get the most from our visit.Is it necessary to add that this is one of the safest-feeling countries we have ever visited? You spend more time on the bus than many Exodus trips but the trip notes reflect that. We didn't have a problem with that.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Apart from the lovely weather, Cuba was not what I expected but turned out to be a unique and thoroughly fascinating adventure. The scenery in the east and south of the island, and at Vinales, is exceptional and the sheer variety of locations and activities on the tour means we were never bored. Open your mind, go with the flow and reach your own conclusions about the political system, the people, the music and all things Cuban.
