Discover western Cuba by kayak on O.A.R.S. eight-day tour through its coastlines and cities, mountains and wetlands. The tour takes off from Havana, where so much of Cuba’s history and future converge with intoxicating flare—and not just because of the mojitos that flow freely. From there, you explore Cuba’s thriving coral reefs and isolated lagoons.
This tour is handcrafted to blend stunning countryside excursions with authentic cultural encounters, resulting in an exceptional people-to-people travel itinerary, that provides meaningful interaction between O.A.R.S. travelers and the people of Cuba. With visits to Colonial Havana, Finca Vigia, the Bay of Pigs, Playa Larga, and Cienfuegos, you can witness Cuba’s tempestuous history and multifaceted modernity. Colonial plazas and palaces, in a staggering array of disrepair and renovation, tell stories of a colonial past merging with the dynamic present.
