Cuba’s spanish-colonial cities and cobblestoned streets, stir visions of brightly painted buildings, pounding mambo rhythms and barrios that bustle well into the night.

This exciting, seven-day tour of Cuba's most famous cities will add the brushstrokes you've been longing to add to the unfinished canvas of your vision of Cuba. Your experience begins in the boisterous harbor city of Havana and continues on through Playa Larga and Playa Girón before settling into the artistic enclave of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, known as "the pearl of the South."
