with The DC Makers Tribe in Cuba
7 nights in Cuba (various cities)
Sun Dec 03 - Sun Dec 10, 2017
For too many people, Cuba is nothing more than a beach resort. That’s crazy; the island practically buzzes with energy and you should do likewise – get moving. Journey through the culture-soaked streets of Trinidad and Old Havana for your fill of drinking and dancing. The music here pours out of open windows. Hit the beach and explore the outdoors, then connect with the locals in homestays and make friends for life as you hit the sites with other young people like yourself. Boring? Impossible!

The adventure begins tonight. Feel free to explore, but make sure you're back in time to meet the group. After introductions, your tour guide will review the details of your tour.
Stop at lush Las Terrazas en route to Viñales. Travel through a rich agricultural area en route to Viñales where both sugarcane and tobacco are grown. Practice some Spanish while staying in a local homestay.
Viñales is in the Pinar del Rio province and located in a fertile valley surrounded by the unusual mogotes, or limestone pincushion hills. Arguably one of the prettiest natural areas in Cuba, we have many opportunities here to enjoy the area, whether it be horseback riding, hiking, or simply sitting back and enjoying the view.
Take a day trip to beautiful Cayo Jutias, 3km of white sand on Cuba's coastline. It is a perfect spot for snorkelling or just blissing out on the beach. Opt to have a rum tasting or tour a cigar factory.
On your way to Trinidad, visit a "vega" or cigar factory, to see how the famous Cuban cigars are made. Enjoy an orientation walk of Trinidad's beautiful centre after settling into the homestay.
Enjoy a free day to explore the area, then learn some moves during a salsa dancing lesson. Take in some live music and practice salsa moves at an evening out at the Casa de la Trova.
Those visitors who wish to pursue outdoor activities will find Trinidad a haven for horseback or bicycle riding (don’t expect any modern mountain bikes though!). If a beach sounds like what you're looking for, try snorkelling or diving in nearby Playa Ancón, just 12 km (7.5 miles) from town.
Enjoy a free day to explore the area. Enjoy a group dinner at a local host's house.
Stop by Santa Clara en route to Havana and visit important historical sites, including the famous Che monument. Discover Old Havana on a short walking tour with the CEO.

Accommodation on this trip is mostly, if not entirely, in 'casas particulares', the Cuban equivalent of a bed & breakfast. These local accommodation options allow you to participate in a typical Cuban living experience by staying with a family in their home. The family rents a bedroom or two with private bathroom shared amongst guests. Groups are usually spread across multiple casas with a central meeting point for evening socializing in the towns.
You and your friends each get $100 in Trip Tribe credits when you share your trip.Learn More

Trip Tribe makes it easy for you and your friends to book a room together. All you need is their email address.
While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.
Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
