Day 2

After a healthy breakfast, insightCuba guests are invited to participate in the MaraCuba 3k race. This race is run simultaneously in each province throughout Cuba. It's great fun as local residents and children join the crowd of runners as you make your way through Old Havana. Walkers are invited. Afterwards, everyone can take part in the post-race parade with music and dancing.

InsightCuba will take care of your race check in, and later in the day, we'll distribute running bibs, race information, and other goodies. Afterwards, runners and companions can explore Havana. Our insightCuba marathon concierge team in the hotel is available to suggest activities and answer any questions.

Tonight, dine on your own at a paladar, a private, family-owned restaurant. Your insightCuba marathon concierge will make outstanding recommendations.

HOTEL INGLATERRA

HAVANA

Since 1875, Hotel Inglaterra has seen the likes of Jose Martí and Winston Churchill walk through its doors. Join their ranks when you stay in this exceptional hotel — the oldest in all of Cuba. And with its location on the famous Paseo del Prado, the city’s top attractions are steps away.

HOTEL SEVILLA

HAVANA

Stopover in the historic, 4-star Hotel Sevilla —  a classic Havana hangout, that’s played host to international artists, athletes, and the infamous gangster Al Capone. The towering Moorish-style structure features daily, live music, and stunning city-wide views from a top-floor restaurant. 

This tour is currently suspended. But we're working on new departures and a new, enhanced itinerary, so stay tuned!
