Cycling Cuba

Cycling through Cuba and it's history

5
A fantastic holiday for those keen to experience the delights of this vibrant and happy country. The cycling is tough, lots of hills and a strong headwind much of the time, not to mention the potholes and exhaust fumes! But in the saddle you get to see the real Cuba, off the beaten track, the smiling Cuban faces, the simple Cuban homes and the wonderful Cuban music - all in warm weather and clear skies. We did however not expect the fantastic history lesson that we received from our leader, who left no stone unturned in his explanations of the events prior to, during and post the Revolution of the 1950s. By the end of the holiday we had all gained a much better understanding of the Cuban way of life and we found ourselves being intrigued as to what the future might hold for this amazing country.

Excellent trip cycling around the Caribbean island of Cuba. It was like going back in time to the 50s with the old American cars and basic lifestyle. Free from phone and Wi-Fi for 2 weeks was a bonus for me!

Not the greatest cycling holiday we have had

Cuba is very 3rd world. The standard of the accommodation was very variable and at times frankly unacceptable. Much of the cycling was on very busy roads with ancient lorries putting out thick black exhaust fumes. The island had its prettier parts but on the whole was flat and uninteresting.

Unforgettable

This was our first group cycling holiday and our first trip with Exodus and it did not disappoint. The cycling is really well planned with great backup and the places we visited combined to give us a varied taste of this unique and fascinating country. We found ourselves in great company - the group really gelled and we had a ball.

Having wanted to visit Cuba for many years I'm convinced this was a great way to do it. It is a fascinating country with a turbulent history. The people and their ability to 'make do' when they have so little is inspirational. Never having been on a guided, group cycling tour before I was unsure what to expect and it took a few days to settle into the format. Apart from the opportunity to see and learn about the country the other great aspect of the trip was the other people on it. They were a lovely group of people each with an interesting life story to tell and cycling presents a great way to chat to people during those hours in the saddle.

Overall good experience with some interesting cycling towards the end of the tour . Cuba is a big island and a lot is crammed in resulting in the tour having an attritional feel with some tedious transfers and insufficient time to explore places such as Camaguey, Bayamo, Santiago de Cuba and for those not staying extra days, particularly Havana.

I would definitely recommend this fabulous trip! Cycling through Cuba is one of the best ways to see the country and its people along the way. The trip ambitiously covers large distances over a sizeable island but the mixture of cycling and bus transfers just about works. There is a good mixture of accommodation-types from larger, swankier hotels (either modernist government hotels or beautiful colonial-style buildings) to staying in a local's home (Casas particulares).

The best holiday ever.

You exceeded my expectations for this trip. Everything was handled smoothly and well. We had a variety of accommodations, some Obviously better than others, the the owners of the casas we stayed in were very accommodating and made up for in kindness what they may have lacked in amenities. We had a variety of tours and th MOST DELIGHTFUL tour leader whose memory for dates and details was beyond compare. He was also encouraging and supportive for those including myself who struggled on a couple of rides. (Due to my lack of cycling ability). I believe the rides were exactly what I expected...challenging for me but not beyond my capabilities.....although there were a few times I questioned that!!!! The drivers were kind and funny. When I mentioned we really liked pineapple...Alexis went and got more! The rooms varied a lot in each hotel and I noted that everyone had "the best room" at least once....I have to think that was intentional....it was the extra little touch that made this trip so truly memorable and special. I am already looking at my next Exodus cycling trip! I would highly recommend it!
