Sun, sand, sea, cocktails, communism and New Year! It is an exciting time to visit Cuba, as it is just ushering in a post-Castro era. We show you Cuba in all its glory the YPT way.
The trip begins in the iconic, time-warped capital Havana, home to a contemporary night scene. So naturally, this will include sampling some of Cuba’s national drink – rum and afterwards staying in a homestay for a memorable experience.
Join YPT to ring in the New Year amongst the Cubans to find out more about the quintessential person of the Cuban revolution, and symbol of revolutionary struggle around the world, Ernesto “Che” Guevara.
Your journey with us starts in Old Havana, as we head off to the Bay of Pigs, the mausoleum of “Che”, where you not only see his final resting place, but the legendary train that he derailed, as well as take part in the celebrations of his life, before visiting Trinidad, after which we return to Havana, where we not only take in iconic places such as the revolutionary museum, but also continue with our Che based theme by visiting the San Carlos de la Cabaña, where Che held his office (and allegedly shot people sentenced to execution), but also his home in the city.
For those familiar with YPT tours, we stick with the revolutionary theme of these, but also incorporating the much more relaxed environment that Cuba offers us by giving ample time for free exploration as well as providing a great chance to party the night away.
The tour is accompanied by YPTs local representative and Cuban guide, as well as one western guide, and our very own bus that will stay with us for the duration of the journey, meaning lots of flexibility and chances to get very off the beaten Cuba track.
