Colonial Cuba

In 1492, when Christopher Columbus set foot in Cuba, he described it as “the most beautiful land that human eyes had ever seen”. He probably wasn’t wrong. A colonial period dominated by the Spanish had just began. This direct influence and a controversial slavery left a crucial mark in the development of the culture, music, dance and religion of the island.

Immerse yourself in the culture and history of Cuba in this fantastic 12-day trip. Visit the main defense fortresses, get lost in the labyrinthic streets of Camagüey or walk around Trinidad, probably the best conserved colonial province. Discover the cosmopolitan cultural mix of Santiago de Cuba and enjoy a great combination of expert-led visits, art, gastronomy, museums and architecture among others.
