Cuba
"Memorial Day Weekend"
Ride in  classic American cars, stay at a "Casa Particular," drink mojitos at the beach, salsa and learn how to roll a Cuban cigar. Join us in Cuba for a memorable weekend. Havana is one of the most impressive cities in the Americas.  It's also one of the most exciting: the modern city is a fascinating mix of old and new, with crumbling tenement blocks and 1950's American Cars rubbing shoulders with grand colonial buildings and monuments to the revolution. This trip is in agreement with "Support of the Cuban People". 
Dates: May28-June 1, 2021

Sample Itinerary

*Subject to change

Bienvenido a Cuba

May 28

You will be welcomed at the airport with a Stella Travel sign and driven to your Casa. 

After refreshing from your flight, the first contact with Cuba will be with Havana’s historical center. Visit the famous El Floridita and enjoy a Daiquirí in honor of Ernest Hemingway.

In the evening we will have a welcome dinner in Al Carbon, a cozy private restaurant. You can enjoy the very special ambiance and also the processes taking place in the kitchen.

May 29

Today we have a full day ahead of us. The day will start with an unforgettable vintage tour aboard one of the 1950s American cars to discover the famed Havana’s Malecon. 

 

After we will head to Callejón de Hamel, a temple of Afro-Cuban culture and rumba. Later we will visit a couple more places (we have to keep some things a surprise). We will have lunch then head to a Salsa Class to warm up and be ready for the next couple of days. 

After lunch, we will head to a facility to get Covid-19 tested in order to have our papers on time for our trip back home. 

As mentioned today is busy. In the evening after some more sightseeing, we will have dinner in the most famous and highest end restaurant in Havana, La Guarida, a Paladar.

May 30

After an early breakfast, we will head to Santa Maria Beach, which is about a 20-minute drive outside of Havana.

Perfect day to make friends with local as the beach has a good mix of locals and tourists, enjoy the blue water and delicious food. 

In the late afternoon, we will drive back to Havana.

In the evening we will head out to town to party it up Cuban style.

May 31

Today we are taking a day trip to Viñales Valley a part of the World Heritage of Unesco. It is also significant for its cultural associations, particularly its traditional agricultural practices related to growing tobacco.

We will visit a family’s tobacco and ecological farm where you’ll roll & smoke your own cigar with a family of cowboys. We will have an Al-fresco farm-to-fork lunch, explore downtown Viñales and more. 

In the evening back in Havana, we will head to Habana Café Nightclub for a dinner show, and more dancing as we finish our trip to Cuba. 

Adiós

June 1st
