A remarkable cycle journey across Cuba that explores the island's revolutionary history, diverse landscapes and its unique brand of Caribbean culture. Riding on extremely quiet roads, this moderate to challenging tour discovers rich colonial heritage, tropical coastlines, jungle-clad mountains and historic sites such as the Bay of Pigs and Che Guevara's Mausoleum. In colonial Trinidad we go local and stay in privately run Casas Particulares.
