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.
