Cycling through Caribbean Cuba gives you unique access to parts of the island that are off the beaten track

See Cuba from two wheels as you cycle around this laid back Caribbean island. Travel the colourful streets of Havana, along dusty roads past farms and tobacco plantations in Vinales, beside vintage cars and horse-drawn carriages and get a taste of Cuba beyond the rum and cigar scene. Swim in Cayo Jutias’ clear blue waters, explore Che Guevara’s former HQ at the Cueva de los Portales and cool off in bubbling river pools near UNESCO-listed Las Terrazas.

Soak up the best of Cuba as you traverse this fascinating country.

This trip has a physical rating by the operator of 3 out of 5. Get in touch to find out more about what this means and what to expect.

Is this trip right for you?

  • Cuba’s roads aren’t always paved, but when they are they can range from smooth to downright terrible. That being said, it’s a fun experience to share the road with tractors, vintage American cars and horse-drawn carriages.
  • While Cuban food can sometimes seem limited due to a ban on imported goods, your guide will steer you towards the best eateries in each destination you visit.
  • Cuba is different and that’s what makes it such a fascinating destination. You will find that things don’t always go according to plan or work the way they do back home. Regulations concerning foreigners and currency may appear strange to you, transport sometimes runs late and sometimes the water in your bathroom can run cold and the electricity fail. In order to get the most out of your holiday, a degree of patience, good humour and understanding is a definite advantage. Cuba may not be wealthy in a monetary sense, however if you approach your holiday with an open and enquiring mind, the warm welcome you receive from Cubans will ensure you a rich and rewarding holiday experience.
  • Import restrictions make the purchase of new bicycles a difficult challenge – the bikes come from a variety of different manufacturers but are all mechanically sound.

For the full trip notes please make an enquiry and we’ll send them right away to help you decide if this is the perfect trip for you.

How fit do I need to be?

To complete this trip it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle. This is a cycling trip, so it requires a certain amount of cycling fitness. This being said, there’s always a comfortable, air-conditioned support vehicle following close by.

Can I take out cash in Cuba?

Cash can sometimes be difficult to access in Cuba. Credit cards (not debit cards) are essential – ideally multiple credit cards from several different banks.

What's the weather like in Cuba?

The Caribbean climate can be very hot and humid. It’s important to wear the appropriate clothing, drink plenty of water and apply sun protection regularly. Lycra cycling shorts are ideal for warmer temperatures.

Will there be Wifi access during my cycle trip in Cuba?

Internet access can be hard to come by, and when it’s available it’s sometimes unreliable. This is, on the other hand, a great opportunity to take a break from modern devices and have a true holiday.
