    DAY 3, May 20th (B,L) Breakfast is serviced at our hotel from 7am to 10am

    Early departure to Pinar Del Rio. If you’ve ever wondered where the world’s finest cigars start out, it’s in the lovingly cultivated tobacco plantations of Cuba’s westernmost province, Pinar del Río. But those plantations are only part of the area’s magic. With its unusual mogotes (rounded limestone mountains) strung along flat plains, Pinar del Río’s spectacular scenery rivals any in the world. These plains, where Cuban cowboys roam and dreamy villages doze, are ringed by mountain ranges crowned by vast stretches of tropical forests.  Lunch this afternoon is at Finca Paraiso. This is not just a lunch, this is a feast. You will see how these young people work this agricultural farm with fresh fruits and vegetables, raise pigs, chickens. The “anti-stress” drink is worth the trip alone. This evening, if you have room after your 14-course lunch, dinner is on your own. Evening at leisure after we return to Havana.


    DAY 4, May 21st (B) Breakfast is serviced at our hotel from 7am to 10am

    Today is an Optional Day- where you can choose to join an optional "Art Tour of Havana or spend the day at leisure in Havana.   Tonight is our Cuban Farewell Dinner, where we will enjoy an amazing authentic Cuban meal and celebrate our last night in Havana.

    Today we must say goodbye to our Cuban friends, hosts, guide, and driver.
