5 days / 4 nights
Destinations: Havana
Operated in: English, Spanish


Day 1
  • Arrive in Havana.
  • Transfer to your boutique casa particular Loft Havana
  • Special Reception
  • Dinner at paladar La Guarida. Having served as shooting set for the Oscar-nominated Cuban film Fresa y Chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate), La Guarida has found more than one way to reach celebrity.
Day 2
  • Walking tour of Old Havana. Past the Saint Francis of Assisi Square and the Old Square, find the Museum of the Automobile, which treasures an impressive collection spanning two centuries. Not to miss are a Ford T from 1918, a game changer at the time; as well as a V16 Cadillac from 1930 and an Oldsmobile made in 1959. Notably, the late historian of the city of Havana, Eusebio Leal, is counted among the most important individual benefactors to the Museum, having donated his DeSoto 1949.
  • In direction to El Templete, admire iconic sites such as the Arms Square, La Real Fuerza Fort and the Captains Generals Palace.
  • Hop on a dazzling Chevrolet 1957 (or similar) for a ride with lots of swagger. Visit NostalgiCar, a private business that has brought to its past splendor more than one almendrón. Meet Nidialys and Julio, the owners, who have channeled their passion for classic cars in a way that transcends the contribution to the precarious transportation system or changing the very urban scene. With their hard work they dignify a true piece of Cuban culture: the love for American vintage cars.
  • Back to your Chevy, cruise through the Metropolitan Park and the neighborhoods of Miramar and Vedado. After admiring the sights of the impressive mansions and the gorgeous 5th Avenue, chug along the Malecón all the way back to Old Havana.
  • Lunch at paladar Jama.
  • Rest of the afternoon at leisure.
  • Dinner at own at a paladar.
Day 3
At the other side of the bay
  • Circumventing the bay, head for the historic villa of Guanabacoa, former capital of Cuba and birthplace of luminaries such as Rita Montaner, Ernesto Lecuona and “Bola de Nieve”. A town of strong traditions, nowhere in Cuba is the African heritage so deeply rooted.
  • Visit Tomás Núñez’ Studio Corral Falso. Better known as “Johny”, the artist has broken with the tendency of establishing art galleries in rather lovable neighborhoods like Vedado, a bold move that has produced palpable results. Learn about the impact in people’s life of this oasis of arts and community initiatives; especially for elderly people and kids with autism.
  • Continue to the fishermen town of Cojímar, a favourite of Hemingway. Join Jeff Goodspeed for an insightful conversation over a delicious lunch at Ajiaco Café. An accomplished musician, Jeff has donated nearly 800 musical instruments for talented Cuban kids. Being a Canadian aplatanado (Cuban for settled) in Cuba, he has a unique perspective on Cuban society at large, not just the cultural side of it.
  • On your way back, stop at the iconic Christ of Casablanca, in the heavily Santeria-leaning municipality of Regla, to admire one of the most spectacular views of the city.
  • Rest of the afternoon at leisure.
  • Dinner at own at a paladar.
Day 4
An agriculture revolution
  • Just outside of Havana, visit Finca (Farm) Martha to meet Fernando Funes Monzote. PhD, agriculture scientist and international speaker, Mr. Funes one day decided to change the title in his business card to Campesino (Farmer in Spanish) -literally-. Left the comfort of Vedado to settle on a badly eroded, brushy hillside and began digging a well into the rocky soil. After several months breaking through layers of rock with picks and hand tools, his vision began to take shape. Named after his late mother, the finca grows more than 60 varieties of vegetables, fruits and herbs, as well as high quality honey, supplying organic produce to many of Havana’s top-rated paladares. Prince Charles himself visited the farm to learn about Funes’ radical vision on Cuban agriculture and the inspiration behind his colossal effort.
  • Continue for a farm-to-table lunch at finca Tungasuk.
  • Rest of the afternoon at leisure
  • Farewell dinner at the rooftop of Malecón 663 accompanied by one of the top music ensembles in Havana. Tie a bow to a memorable soirée with a shot of rum and a cigar, both world class Cuban products.
Day 5
