Itinerary
Itinerary
  • 1
    Arrive at the airport in Havana at any time. A representative from KB Cuba will meet you at the airport and provide private transportation to your casa in Havana. Once you're settled, you'll embark on a short walk around town to stretch your legs and get acquainted before having dinner.
  • 2
    Explore the historic city of Havana, Cuba! Move around and meet the locals. You'll go for an hour drive around Havana in a classic 1950’s convertible, a guided walking tour of Old Towne, and a KB x evo special, a short fun bike ride around Havana visiting local families and friends of ours living off the tourist path. We’ve put together genuinely interesting and eclectic “locals” visit to this exotic capitol city.
  • 3
    Depart for a two and a half hour drive to the famous Bay of Pigs, a site of a failed 1960’s US invasion. Enjoy some snorkeling or scuba diving in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. Continue on to the bayside town of Cienfuegos for a city tour (if there is time) or a late afternoon game of soccer with the local kids.
  • 4
    Leaving Cienfuegos, you'll stop at National Park "El Nicho," where you'll take a short hike to some small waterfalls and natural swimming pools in the jungle. Afterwards, you'll continue on to the wonderful city of Trinidad. Explore this quaint, cobblestone town that dates back to the 1500's.
  • 5
    After breakfast, head into the steep, lush mountain range above town for a rugged hike through the jungle to a waterfall and another swimming hole. We’ll also spend some time talking to local coffee farmers of this exclusive tropical coffee region. You'll return to town for lunch, then head to a local national park for a horseback ride through the forest. If time permits, you'll take a quick drive down to the coast for sunset with the locals. In the evening, you'll have dinner on the town, enjoy some live music and take an optional visit to the local disco, located inside a cave!
  • 6
    Today you'll leave early and drive to a small, seaside resort with excellent snorkeling and scuba diving options that is ideal for beginners and first-time divers. One of our KB x evo select experiences, this off the path gem must be seen to be believed and has several surprises we won’t spoil now. This site is spectacular and generally not very crowded and offers some of the best snorkel or scuba on the entire island. You'll make the four hour drive back to Havana for one last great meal and some optional Havana nightlife.
  • 7
    After breakfast, if you have time, we can make a final low-key walk around the city taking in the local day-to-day Cuban life. A representative from KB Cuba will transfer you to the airport for your flight departure home.

Area Information
Cuba

The largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba is a magnificent, culturally and naturally diverse country with a rich, eclectic history including indigenous, Latin, African, and former Soviet influences. It was only recently opened to US travelers, and is still officially a communist country. On this Cuba trip package, you’ll experience the highlights of this tropical gem and enjoy truly unspoiled natural places, from hiking and horseback riding among waterfalls and lush forest in the Escambray Mountains, to snorkeling (or scuba diving, if you wish) in the crystal clear Caribbean water of the Bay of Pigs.

Trip Planning

Trip Planning

Cuba is a warm, tropical island so appropriate sunscreen, sandals, floppy hats, insect repellent and thin, breathable, loose-fitting clothing is recommended. Even in fancy restaurants, shorts and a collared shirt or sundress paired with sandals will get you in, but many travelers in those places are well dressed. There is no formal dress code so just follow your usual instincts. KB recommends packing as you would for any week long trip to a beach resort, with the addition of a few items as described below.

FAQ
FAQ
  • Is it legal to travel to Cuba under the new administration?
    Travel to Cuba has been permitted for many years by applying for authorized travel under 12 different categories. However, under changes to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR) effective January 16, 2015, OFAC has generally authorized 12 categories of travel to Cuba, which previously required a specific license from OFAC. Generally licensed travel is now available for each of the categories, including "Support for the Cuban people § 515.574." KB’s itinerary was subjected to multiple reviews by the OFAC offices in 2016 and in all cases their trips were approved, authorized, and determined to successfully fulfill the criteria set forth under the OFAC guidelines. Nothing to date has been changed or amended to the laws permitting these authorized, "Support for the Cuban people" contact trips to Cuba. In the event the law is changed we expect a window of transition to apply, and in all cases, should the trip no longer be allowed, you'll be issued a prompt refund of the full original cost of the trip.
  • Can I add additional days to my departure?
    For the most part yes, check with us for details.
  • Is my departure guaranteed?
    Yes, all departures are guaranteed in the guaranteed departure dates! However, please do not purchase flights or make your travel arrangements until you receive confirmation from KB. The campsites and huts along the route are rugged and very basic. KB Tambo pays for the daily shower and toilet fee required of all campers and for those using the huts. The huts are warm but can be noisy, with dorm-style sleeping arrangements in a common room. There are no single supplements or private rooms available in the mountain huts.
  • What is the best way to get to the trip start location? Will someone pick me up from the airport?
    NYC, Boston, Charlotte, Denver, Ft Lauderdale, Miami, and more from various major carriers. Plan to fly into the airport in Havana where a representative from KB will meet you and take you to your homestay.
  • How big will my group be?
    The maximum group size is 10 people, and the average is usually around 5 or 6.
  • What are the accommodations like?
    You'll stay in private homes (“casas”) which is what most travelers do. These are private, local homes that have been restored - they include private rooms with private bathrooms, often with separate entrances. They are clean and comfortable, and you only have to be around the families if you want to. Many travelers say it is one of their favorite parts of the trip.
  • Can solo travelers get their own room? Is there a single supplement fee?
    If you are a solo traveler and would like your own room there is a $150 fee.
  • What is the food like?
    The Cuban culinary scene is improving rapidly by leaps and bounds. Featuring basic ingredients heavy on fresh local vegetables, rice, chicken and fish, with plenty of beans as well. You will be eating a mix of home cooked meals in your "casas particulares," combined with a few local restaurants for dinner. The Cuban food on our trips has been one of many pleasant surprises reported by our guests.
  • How do I purchase a travel visa?
    Cuba requires all visitors - not just Americans - to purchase a travel visa. This is essentially granted automatically to anyone traveling to Cuba. If traveling through Mexico, this visa can be bought at the check-in counter of the Cancun or Mexico City airport for $20. If flying directly from the US, most airlines have their own system for this visa and they are the ones responsible for providing it to you. Most airlines are charging between $50 to $90 for this visa. Please ask us if you have any questions.
  • What is the best time of the year to visit Cuba?
    October through April are usually the preferred months. Cuba is a great destination when it's cold at home and you're in search of some warm weather. For most people that means visiting in spring, winter, or fall. May through August are the warmest parts of the year in Cuba, often with high humidity and daily rain showers.
  • How does money work in Cuba?
    There are two currencies in Cuba. The local currency, peso, and the convertible peso (CUC), which is tied to the US dollar at a 1:1 ratio. The local guide will help you change some money into local currency. Credit cards are not generally accepted, and withdrawing money from an ATM is generally not possible, so you'll need to bring all the cash you'll need for dinners, drinks, souvenirs, etc. For most people that is from $500 to $1500. KB Cuba can arrange for safe, free safeguarding of your spending money throughout the trip so you can focus on having fun.
  • How much extra money should I budget?
    All lodging, breakfast on days 2-7, transportation, and activities are included. Extra money is needed for lunches and dinners, drinks, souvenirs, etc. For most people that is from $500 to $1500. Dinners without alcohol would be only about $100 for the week, so it is possible to hit the lower end of that scale if a budget trip is desired. Others can enjoy the rum-flavored, Hemingway-style nightlife options found throughout the trip.
  • What should I bring with me? Do you have a packing list?
    See our planning and packing list section for these details.
  • Do I need to bring a power adapter? Anything else I should consider?
    Power outlets in Cuba vary; there are usually US-standard 110v outlets available, but some are 220v. Most are marked, but some are not. Overall, it is best to bring a power adapter/surge protector type charger for your phone, camera, or computer. Check with your device manufacturer or retailer for details. You should bring all needed medicine, personal hygiene, and eyesight needs including contact lens solution. Also, all batteries, chargers, memory cards, SIM cards, etc should be brought as they are not easily purchased. Oh, and bring a couple of soccer balls!
  • Are there any health concerns?
    Cuba has a very good health care system, but you should contact your primary physician and/or local travel clinic to discuss your plans for a trip to Cuba. A doctor is also the best source for advice on which, if any, special vaccinations would be required for travel, but there are no unusual health concerns for a trip to Cuba.
  • Should I purchase travel insurance? If so, do you have a recommended provider?
    We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance for all trips. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement if you are forced to cancel your trip for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to cover medical help, emergency transport, and/or theft or accidental damage while traveling. We recommend World Nomads for travel insurance.
  • Can I cancel my trip?
    evo upholds KB Tambo’s cancellation policy for this trip. If you cancel within 30 days of purchase (as long as your trip departs in more than 30 days), you are entitled to a 100% refund. If you up to 31 days before your departure date, you are entitled to a 90% refund. Any cancellations made within 30 days of your departure date are 100% non-refundable.
Testimonials
Virtually everything - the casas, the food, the activities, and the logistics - highly exceeded our expectations. Everyone in our group agreed it was one of the best trips we have taken and KB did a great job. We would recommend this trip to any traveler
Anna
Trip Guest
[We] had an outstanding and humbling experience and as we've said, really appreciated the mix of structure and freedom. As we have never taken a small group trip before, we definitely were a little nervous. But the people we met were wonderful and now, we expect, life-long friends.
Brianna
Trip Guest
My biggest concern was that going with a tour would be too constrictive. When I travel, I need the chance to be spontaneous… I was dubious but willing to go. Let me tell you, this trip significantly exceeded my expectations. I knew I would enjoy myself, but I didn't expect to fall in love with Cuba the way that I did. I will absolutely recommend KB Cuba to anyone who asks.
