At OUT Adventures we pride ourselves on fostering an environment in which our clients are provided with authentic local experiences and thought provoking conversation. We have chosen not to run an "educational tour" in Cuba due to strict guidelines and itineraries, rigid seminar schedules and lack of free time for guests. We strongly believe that our trip reflects the sentiment of real Cuban culture and we are confident that you will agree. For more information, please contact an adventure specialist toll-free within North America at 1-866-360-1152.

The best way to explore this world of colonial buildings, elegant plazas, vintage cars and cigar-smoking musicians is by foot. Visit the Plaza de la Revolucion and pass giant monuments to legends Che Guevara and Jose Marti. The striking baroque facade of the Catedral San Cristobal de la Habana is a must-see.
One of Cuba's most attractive areas, the fertile valleys and distinctive limestone 'pin-cushion' hills are well worth exploring. Mix with the friendly Vinales locals and dance the night away after enjoying a tobacco farm visit and dinner under the stars.
Head to the Casa de la Cultura Benjamin Duarte, where it's possible to climb a tower for stunning coastal views over this important port city. Stop by the Palacio de Valle, the architectural pride of Cienfuegos. For a local pick-me-up why not try a Cuban coffee - just be warned it's served strong, black and super-sweet.
Take time to explore Trinidad's Spanish-style churches then head to Playa Ancon, a white sandy beach where many hours will no doubt slip lazily by. Snorkel over Cuba's colourful underwater world or hire a bike for a relaxing pedal around town. Practice your best salsa moves at one of Trinidad's famous music venues or admire the rhythm of the locals while sipping a minty mojito.
Tour the vibrant orchid gardens of Soroa and also stop in Santa Clara to visit the Che Guevara mausoleum and learn about his legend and life - be sure to see the impressive bronze statue of Che bearing his rifle. Back in Havana, there is time for a final night of salsa.
|"The Cuba trip was one of the most colorful, rewarding and enjoyable trips I have ever taken -- and I have been on many tours around the globe. The music, the people, the landscape all exceeded expectations."|
|"This was my second trip to Cuba. I enjoyed seeing other parts of the country and visiting the tobacco farm, having the pig roast with a local family, and staying a few nights with a local family. Beaches were great especially because we went to smaller less known places which were not crowded."|
|"An amazing trip in an equally amazing country. In our time in Cuba, we really got a insight into the life, people and culture of this fascinating place. It is a country I have wanted to visit for many years, and I think this Out Adventures trip exceeded my expectations in terms of a 'Cuban' experience, and it was certainly an experience I would not have achieved had I not been travelling with an experienced local guide."|

|"This was one of our top 5 all time trips. And to think, I was the biggest skeptic because we usually stay away from group trips. But being able to visit such a different culture with guides that allowed us to make the most of it was phenomenal. Would totally recommend to others. "|
|"Excellent trip! 10 was the right number of participants - who were all fun to be around. The tour leader was also perfect for the group - a beautiful woman who knew how to spoil the boys. A bit much travel by bus, but the locations were worth it. A GREAT experience!"|
|"It was my first group trip and I had an amazing time. I would definitely go on another OUT Adventure trip, they go out of your way to make you feel welcome and feel part of the group. Great group of guys, great activities, great country....incredible experience and memories."|
Most of our trips require a compulsory local payment, which is part of the contract with you (the customer) and OUT Adventures. This amount is the final payment for your trip and is to be paid in the specified currency, in cash to your leader upon arrival. The local payment is non-refundable, and is considered part of the total trip payment.
It is expensive to transfer funds to many countries - so by making a Local Payment you help us keep your costs low.
The Local Payment is used for paying for local services such as hotels and transport.
No, as the money is used to pay for local services these cannot be paid elsewhere.
