CYCLE TOUR Central/west
November 10-23, 2017 (14 days, 13 nights)

This is a fourteen day program which will have you cycling some of the most beautiful areas in Cuba and giving you a bit of beach time and time to discover a portion of Havana. Starting out in Santa Clara, in the province of Villa Clara you will ride along relatively quiet paved roads through small towns and cities with magnificent views of the countryside.  The tour will end in Varadero. You will have a guided city tour of Havana to experience this magnificent colonial, world heritage city.  After Havana, bikes will be transferred to the outside of the city and you will bike along the north coast and eventually to the magnificent Vinales valley.  You will spend two nights in the village of Vinales with a day excursion to Cayo Jutia with its spectacular beach.   After cycling from Vinales to the freeway you will transfer to the popular tourist destination of Varadero for a final night at an all inclusive beach resort and where you will catch your return flight.

The minimum number I need to confirm the this tour is 14 and the maximum number of cyclists I take on this tour is 17 and it is on a first come basis so EARLY BOOKING IS IMPORTANT. Hope to have you along and I know you will enjoy your Cuban experience.

Compare the quality and the price to other companies offering similar tours…Cuba1tours is best in both.

Due to the US influence in Cuba, prices have increased substantially.  Therefore, in order for me to compete, I have had to raise my prices and they still remain in Canadian dollars.
