Que linda Cuba!
“The most beautiful island that human beings have ever seen”… this is how Christopher Columbus defined it when he landed…. a unique City in the world Cuba , it is also an island capable of entering you and overwhelming you like. Cuba is a concentrate of positive energy, joy and vitality. Cuba is the art of making with the little you have and if you don’t have something, you invent it! It is the strong spirit of the Cubans who never give up even when things are really difficult. Cuba is the strength to dance even in the face of catastrophes, like a hurricane. Cuba is the strength to say thank you to life, even when life is not easy. With this itinerary we will go to some must-seen places sucha as Holguin and its beautiful beaches including the famous Guardalavaca. Camaguey with its beautiful examples of colonial architecture; Trinidad which has been given the precious recognition by UNESCO and Havana, which tells itself a little. we can’t not to mention the “vieja” part, with its beautiful architecture, important monuments and that atmosphere that only here you can find. The part on horseback may seem marginal, but this proposal was designed to allow you to get to know the island even covering large distances that would have been impossible on horseback and also allowing those ,who do not want to make the horse the main focus of the holiday ,to participate.
