Cuba Simply Natural Holiday

Cuba Simply Natural Holiday

This is a leisurely trip that explores the unspoilt countryside and beaches of Western Cuba. It perfectly combines the delights of a few days in Havana with the breathtaking natural beauty of Pinar del Rio. Here you will spend time in the Vinales Valley, a rich and fertile area with tobacco and coffee plantations ploughed by oxen, unusual hay stack mountains, beautiful rivers, caves and natural springs. The towns and villages dotting the landscape seem to be in something of a charming time warp and the there is an abundance of birds and wildlife. Hiking or horseriding in this area could be one of the highlights of your Cuban holiday. Just 52 kilometres from here, off the northwest coast of Cuba, lies a cluster of undeveloped tiny islands enveloped by thick jungles and bordered by stunning white sand beaches. One of the most idyllic of these is Cayo Levisa, where you will spend a peaceful couple of days before returning to Havana. This itinerary can be perfectly adapted to a fly-drive holiday should you prefer to be more independent and could also be extended to spend extra days at any of the locations.
