A selection of Activities and excursions
We have hand selected a list of activities for you to enjoy while touring Cuba. We believe these activities will give you a good grasp at what Cuba has to offer. There is also enough flexibility for you to choose other options in order to fit your interests and expectations during the trip.
Where meals are included we aim to showcase the best of Cuban cuisine by frequenting the growing number of paladares (privately owned restaurants). Where meals are not included, your guide and our team will be happy to make recommendations and reservations as required.

Zapata Swamp is, undoubtedly, the best bird watching area in Cuba, and possibly the entire Caribbean region. It supports all but three of Cuba’s 23 avian endemics, as well as many other native species, both winter residents and transients, along with several summer and spring visitors (which breed in Cuba but return south in fall). Over 270 species have been reported in the area.

Welcome to the maze! Camaguey (originally named Puerto Principe) was the 4th village founded by the Spanish crown on the southern coast of the region where it’s settled now. It was relocated in 1528, after some native rebellions and pirate attacks, being the last the reason why the city was designed like a maze, in order to confuse the attackers.
Continue to Moron, Moron, a small town founded in the first half of the 16th century that stills preserves buildings that match its age. Moron is only 30 miles away from Cayo Coco, which makes it the perfect base to for our birdwatching adventure in the area.
Main targets in the area:Plain Pigeon, Palm Crow, Cuban Parrot and Gundlach’s Hawk.
Main targets in the area:Cuban Gnatcatcher, a race of Zapata Sparrow, Piping Plover, Key West Quail-Dove and Oriente Warbler.

Adventure into western Havana and discover Fusterlandia, a huge tilework masterpiece built by local artist Jose Fuster over the last 20 years. If Gaudí reincarnates and decides to go for a tropical spin, this is it. Fuster’s work has covered several suburban blocks with whimsical but highly stylized public art. The centerpiece is the artist’s own house, which you can explore as you check on the different galleries where some of his art is sold, including ceramic tiles and paintings.

Spending money on tour
Everyone spends money at different rates, and in addition to that, many of your major expenses such as accommodation, private transportation between destinations, airport transfers, entrance fees to activities, tour leader and lunches are already included. You’ll just need enough money to cover the rest of your meals, drinks, tips and souvenirs.
If you are looking at the possibility of booking some extra activities you should bring some additional money for that too. Also, some souvenirs are more expensive than others, you might want to bring some nice cigars and rum back home, make sure you include those in your budget calculation as well.
All in all, we recommend bringing around 50 CUC per person per day. The CUC (Cuban Convertible Peso) is valued 1:1 with the US dollar (not taking into consideration exchange fees, which tipically take the exchange rate down to 87 cents of a CUC for each US dollar).
Accommodation on tour
This tour is priced to stay in Casa’s/ B&B’s. The Casa’s we have hand selected are not exactly as the standard Casa’s you will find in Cuba, we have chosen to partner with them because of their excellent, friendly and reliable service. They are run more like your traditional B&B’s but still offer a unique cultural experience. While they shouldn’t be compared to modern Western hotels, the rooms will have air-conditioning, private en suite facilities, hot and cold water and have generally been recently renovated to a beautiful standard. Location is another important factor; The Casa’s we use are always within walking distance of the city centers, which will give you easy access to restaurants, bars , museums, etc.
Staying in cuba’s casas particulares is an ideal way to gain an insight into the country and its people.
Not sold on staying at a Casa?
That’s OK, we can certainly look to upgrade your accommodation to 4* or 5* properties, depending on your budget. It is worth noting some accommodation providers in Havana are to be found in older buildings without elevators. If you believe that your physical capabilities will make it difficult to climb stairs, simply let us know. We will be able to find you a suitable alternative.
