From the minute you land at the airport, Cuba will do its best to get into your soul and you'll go home changed forever! At times frustrating, at times mind blowing, a visit to Cuba will be nothing if not stimulating. In this one week holiday, we've managed to pack in a fantastic selection of cycling and sight seeing - every day we've carefully balanced the mix of cycling, sightseeing, exploring on foot, relaxing on the bus and soaking up the sights and sounds in one of the incredible towns and cities that pepper the island.
Cuba is huge, something most visitors don't realise. with the main island being 780 miles (approx 1250 Kms) in length (only slightly shorter than the length of the UK) and it would be impossible to see it all in one week, so we've picked out the absolute highlights for this holiday.
The trip starts in the capital Havana. This incredible city is like no-where else - beautiful (if dilapidated) architecture, an amazingly eclectic mix of vehicles (pre-1950s American cars, 1980s Russian Ladas, old-fashioned single speed Chinese bikes and the occasional horse and cart), tree lined boulevards and narrow cobbled streets, vast churches and public buildings, hole-in-the-wall cafes and big pedestrianised squares - perfect for people watching. In the background you might catch Salsa and Rumba beats, a waft of fat cigar and the callout from a pagan priest selling artifacts for a forthcoming Saint's day.
We'll start our trip by exploring Havana by bike, before taking a transfer down to Santa Clara. The next morning, we'll head out on the bikes to explore some of the highlights of Santa Clara, before riding to our next destination, Sancti Spiritus, one of the seven original villas built by the Spanish Conquistadors. Next on our itinerary is the sugar cane capital, Trinidad. To get a real flavour for Cuban life, we're going to be staying here with a local family in a Casa Particulares (a local home where tourists are allowed to stay). Trinidad is close to an amazing area of coastline so whilst we're here, we're going to spend a day with a walking tour of the town followed by heading to the beach for a picnic lunch and a swim. 
From Trinidad we head to the town of Cienfuegos, "The pearl of the south", where we have time to explore, before heading onto the small town of Playa Larga, located on a beautiful white sandy beach on the edge of the Gran Parque Natural Montemar. The following morning we head into the National Park on our bikes for some gentle exploration and wildlife spotting - the park is the home to the world's smallest bird, the bee hummingbird and the incredible manatee or sea-cow - a distant relative of the dolphin.
From here we head back by bus into Havana, where we'll spend the afternoon having a guided walking tour of the old town. We'll spend our final night in the old town celebrating all the amazing sights and experiences that we've managed to fit into a one week trip! For a flavour of this destination and the cycling you can expect, check out our Cuban Revolutions video.
