Cuba

Be among the first to venture to Cuba, as this fascinating country opens its doors to the world, and discover centuries of cultural heritage and incredible natural landscapes. The hospitable Cuban people will greet us throughout our Cuba tour, inviting us to meet artists and musicians, farmers, and new entrepreneurs, whether it’s a performance by the Cienfuegos Choir before dinner or meeting a local tobacco farming family in the Viñales Valley. As your Cuban travel guide, Zegrahm Expeditions will give you access to UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Biosphere Reserves, tidy colonial towns, and vibrant Havana. We’ll tour the Palace of Fine Arts, visit the Buena Vista Social Club, tour the Zapata Wetlands, and meet the unfettered wildlife of Topes de Collantes National Park.
