You will then travel to the rugged and mountainous East, passing quaint colonial towns on the way. At the end of the tour you can take a moment to relax on the idyllic beaches of Cayo Saetia. Be inspired by the diversity of the landscape and the openness and infectious happiness of the Cuban population. From the city through to the unspoiled countryside, you are in for a fun-filled and memorable stay in Cuba.
Highlights of Total Cuba XXL Tour:
Whether you have a passion for history, nature or getting to know the locals, you can enjoy it all with our Total Cuba XXL Tour! Not to be missed is the richly colourful town of Trinidad, which was founded in 1514 by the Spanish conquistador Diego Velázquez and was chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. The old town’s magnificent and colourful palaces are a reminder of a time of prosperity, lasting well into the 19th century. It was a time when Trinidad could withstand the numerous pirate attacks and when the wealth generated from the sugar, tobacco and livestock farming shaped the town. It was the slave revolts and intense European competition in the sugar industry that finally put an end to the town’s profiteering era. Today, Trinidad is home to 75,000 inhabitants and has managed to retain its charm of a time gone by. A stroll on the Plaza Mayor, in the heart of the old town, is sure to feel like stepping right back into colonial times.
Santa Clara & Che Guevara
On your tour you will experience Cuba by closely following the route of the Cuban Revolution. Santa Clara is remembered as the place where Che Guevara accomplished his greatest feat in the late 1950s; under his charge, the rebel army was able to stop and capture an armoured train carrying weapons to General Batista, and in doing so managed to seize Santa Clara, paving the way to the ultimate conquest of Havana. On this tour, you will stop at Santa Clara, where you will have the chance to visit the Mausoleum of Ernesto Che Guevara himself. For years after Guevara’s death in Bolvia, his remains were thought of as lost, and it was not until 1997 that he was brought back to Cuba to be laid to rest in the specially commissioned mausoleum in Santa Clara. Alongside this mausoleum there is a small museum, and together, these form the most visited attraction in Cuba, making it a real highlight of all our Cuba Tours!
The final highlight of the Total Cuba XXL Tour is the island of CayoSaetia with its idyllic beaches and impressive variety of flora and fauna. The 42km² island, which is registered as a protected nature reserve, is home to African wild animals, including zebras, antelopes and ostriches. Visitors are therefore greeted with a completely different side to Cuba and they are bound to feel like they have stepped right into the African Savanna. You will find that the whole island is blessed with unspoiled natural beauty and lush green forests. In the island’s many small bays there are also beautiful pristine beaches just waiting to be discovered, where the calm seas resemble a blue lagoon. The upstream coral reef offers diving enthusiasts the perfect opportunity to explore the wonders of the underwater world. Finally, CayoSaetia is the perfect spot to relax, after a tiring day of sightseeing on your Total Cuba XXL Tour.
