Tour description

Would you like to visit the well-known "hot land" of Cuba? It is here where the Taíno roots are mixed with the African and the European, to give identity to the Creole.
Would you like to walk through the streets of the first capital of the New World, more than 500 years ago? Come discover the mysteries and ambitions of the first discoverers of America .
Here Bacardi Rum, Trova, carnivals and the Fire Festival were born. The remains of José Martí and Fidel Castro rest here. Here is the Great Stone and Türkiye Peak, the highest elevation in the country.
