    Taking a ride in a classic car around Havana is an absolute must. Cruising around the city with the top down and some cuban rythms playing in the background just felt like good old fashioned fun.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Victoria Akers

    The beautiful colonial city of Trinidad is a hub of activity, with quirky bars, cobbled streets, a vibrant art scene and music streaming out from every doorway. View the stunning sunsets from the Bell Tower in the centre of town, then head to the steps of Casa de la Musica, as locals and tourists alike salsa dance to the live band each evening. No previous experience necessary!
