Cuba Tour

From Havana to Trinidad… and everything in between

Havana and Trinidad might well be the most alluring cities in Cuba, for good reason. They both are so special, that prestigious international accolades like that of UNESCO World Heritage Site sounds like an understatement. It is no wonder that what lies beyond is often overlooked. Cienfuegos and the Zapata Swamps, two gems situated right en route between Havana and Trinidad, treasure natural and cultural wonders that beg to be discovered and relished upon. If only one could visit them in a slower and more flexible fashion…by e-bike maybe?
