Day 4 – Havana / Santa Clara
After breakfast, head to Santa Clara, a key city in the Cuban revolution. See a huge statue of Ernesto Che Guevara, which commemorates his death and those who were murdered with him in Bolivia and a museum dedicated to his life, which you will have time to visit if you wish. In Santa Clara experience a more authentic Cuba, with an abundance of local restaurants and music venues in this small, friendly town.
Day 5 / 6 / 7 – Trinidad
No other colonial city in Cuba is as well preserved as Trinidad. The thing most people love about this place is the nightlife; there are no less than 10 live music venues all within a short walking distance of each other. You'll be near Valle de los Ingenios and Playa Ancón, where you can enjoy long stretches of white sand beaches and enjoy activities like scuba diving, snorkelling, waterfall swimming and horse-riding.
Day 8 – Trinidad / Cienfuegos
After breakfast, travel to Cienfuegos, through the densely vegetated Peninsula de Zapata swamp lands and along the beautiful Bay of Pigs. This is where the landing of counter-revolutionary exile militia occurred in 1961. Visit a museum which recounts the events of this conflict. Stop at a beautiful swimming pool resembling a huge natural tropical fish tank and at a beach for snorkelling (weather permitting). Overnight in Cienfuegos.
Day 9 – Cienfuegos / Viñales
After breakfast, go to Pinar del Rio and Viñales. Viñales is a small but culturally rich village with friendly and welcoming locals and a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, exploring caves and horseback riding. Although a small village, the nightlife remains as good as anywhere in Cuba.
