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.
 

3-Star Hotels (3 nights) & Comfortable Gay-welcoming Homestays (4 Nights)

We have carefully chosen these gay-welcoming properties with you in mind. They have the right balance of comfort while still being locally owned and centrally located.


 

You are required to carry your bag on and off bus, up hotel steps, etc. Your itinerary may include easy paced walks or bike rides, but these are on mainly flat ground.
 

On this trip we will share with you what we love about Cuba, but you should expect a bit of a culture shock when it comes to Western expectations. The level of service may not be what you've come to expect, choice of food may be limited, and it is often difficult to stay connected with the outside world as wifi is rarely available, and when it is, you may not be able to access your email or social media. We encourage you to disconnect and really get to know this wonderful island.
 

Maximum of 16 travellers per group. Departure is guaranteed, subject to 4 people travelling.
 

Allow USD $750 for meals not included.
 

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.
 

En route to Trinidad 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. While in Trinidad, take time to explore the 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.
 

Stop in the colonial city of Cienfuegos on your way to Vinales; 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.
 

Tour the vibrant orchid gardens of Soroa on your way back to Havana. Enjoy a walking tour of Old Havana, and a special guided tour that you won't find anywhere else! And, there's time for a final night of salsa in this gay-welcoming city.

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.
