When we traveled around Cuba for the first
time many years ago we made ourselves a
tour where after a few days of the exploration of
Havana ( and what a first impression this was )
we headed to the western side of the island and
to our total surprise we discovered the gems
that are known today to many as Cienfuegos and
Trinidad. French and Spanish built
colonial cities with plenty
of beaches and nature to discover around.
Today after all that time we offer to you the same
experience we had, in an excursion undiluted and
unique as Cuba itself is.
