Enliven the senses on this overland
journey through Cuba with its blend of
colours, flavours, aromas and sounds.
Discover the faded colonial grandeur
of Havana and Trinidad, the delightful
rolling countryside with its tobacco and
coffee plantations, the historical sites
of the revolution and the ever-present
rhythms of the son and mambo styles of
music. Cuba is changing fast, so this is
a great time to visit while its exotic and
distinctive style remains.

Difficult to choose! Seeing the beautiful colonial buildings, some beautifully retsored and others, often still inhabited, crumbling around us. Also, visiting the Monumento Ernesto Che Guervara and hearing the passion in our guide's voice as she explained about the battle of Santa Clara. My husband would say the old cars! Mrs Jane Jowitt
