Cuba: La Isla Grande!

The best of Cuba: revolutionary history, faded colonial charm and Caribbean beaches

Wanderlust has teamed up with Exodus Travel to offer a truly unforgettable 16 day holiday!

In 1492 when Christopher Columbus discovered Cuba he described it as "the most beautiful land on Earth". As well as its beauty, Cuba offers a unique cultural experience with its blend of African and Spanish influences mixed with 50 years of communism.

No Cuba adventure holiday is complete without seeing the sites Cuba is famous for - the dilapidated colonial grandeur of Old Havana, the lively nightlife of Santiago and the restored splendour of Trinidad.This trip will also take you to the less well-known areas of Cuba where you can appreciate its natural beauty and rich heritage. We visit the Sierra Maestra, an area of steep, jungle covered mountains filled with bird life. It was in these mountains that Castro and Che Guevara coordinated the Revolutionary War. There is time to relax with two nights in Baracoa, a lively port town with great beaches and there is also the opportunity to take an optional catamaran trip to a remote Caribbean Island.

    An amazing adventure shared with friends: Cuba is fascinating, surprising and so interesting. You have to go for the culture, the people, the landscapes, the history, and of course the rum and the cigars! ;D

    It is hard to find the right words to describe our amazing trip to Cuba as this country defies expectations and boggles the mind. Cuba is so unique, so contradictory and so inspiring. I am just so pleased to have experienced this beautiful country with a really fun group of people!

    hi there. not to be negative but more as a prevention, i have been to cuba a few times so a suggestion re: personal belongings: bring only jewellry you are prepared to lose if you aren't wearing it at all times, e.g. wedding rings, etc. because of theft in hotel rooms, leave cash/cameras in the room at own risk. it may not happen but don't bring real gold, silver, etc. also, i wouldn't bring anything i wasn't prepared to lose in general, the last time we flew my suitcase was ransacked at the airport before coming out and i lost half the contents. bring necessary medications on board with you.

      I just got back from Cuba yesterday after spending 30 days there. It is such an amazing country. Fortunately we had absolutely no problems at all so maybe things there are improving.

    After much discussion with various adventure tour providers we have decided to go with Exodus. They can offer us a private group tour at the best time of year at a discounted rate. We even get a Saturday departure! All in all I think this is the best of the offers and Exodus have a great reputation so we can look forward to an amazing adventure holiday!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
