CUBA-ECO TOUR

 

Cuba Eco-Tour in Support of the Cuban People is the best of both worlds, with about half of your 7 days in Cuba splitbetween Havana and the Cuban

countryside.  Incuded are driving tours of Havana and walking tours of Old Havana, plus visits to private busnisses and small farmers near Havana.

All our tours may be modified, for shorter or longer duration, or itinerary changes.  Itinerary suggestions for a longer version of this tour include visiting Soroa near Havana, the town of Trinidad and neighboring mountains, the Banoa nature preserve, and the Zapata swamp and Bay of Pigs area.  Contact us via email for your custom tour or with any questions.
