The ebb and flow of Cuba is omnipresent and is manifested in vibrations that reverberate throughout this dynamic place. Every pore is filled with the low hum of vintage cars that course through the aged streets of Havana, with the sounds of music syncopated to a rhythm of the past. Feet step, hips sway in response to the addictive pulsations. The lull and crescendo of conversation emanate from doors of Havana’s classic bars and spill into the street adding to the chorus of sounds around you. As the ears are enticed by the myriad sounds, the eyes are entranced visual works of genius in colors that draw sight in every direction, creating rhythmic sensations in the mind. In every corner is some expression of the Cuban soul: a splash of color here, a guitar riff there, a serpentine vine crawling up a Spanish arch. It is spice, it is movement, it is the lugubriously refreshing essence of a mojito, it is Cuba

Degree of Difficulty –    

Land in Marti International Airport and begin your touring through historic Havana.
