This is a walking tour and takes approximately 2 hours.

Havana Art Tour / Museo De Bellas Artes

You will visit two Cuban artists in their studios. Get behind the façade and interact with this thriving community depending on your particular interest. Photography, sculpture or painting. Specify whether you would like to see well-known or up-and-coming artists. Afterward you will visit the Museo de Bellas Artes.

Day 3: Havana

Hemingway Tour

Gertrude Stein, the celebrated American writer, once said that Ernest Hemingway had a good nose for finding good places to live and eat. She wasn’t wrong at all, as Hemingway’s villa on the outskirts of Havana proves.

Located on a hill and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and a magnificent view of the city in the distance, the house was visited by numerous renowned celebrities during the 1940s and ´50s. Today it is exactly as Hemingway left it in 1960, with hundreds of personal belongings, large swimming pool, the Wheeler boat he used for fishing, the three-story tower with its spectacular views and much more.

Your expert guide, a retired professor of English literature at the university of Havana, will show you around and share with you interesting insights into the life of Hemingway and that period in Cuban history. On the way back to town, your guide will bring you to see the Cojimar fishing village: a small picturesque town that inspired Hemingway to write the novel 'The Old Man and the Sea', and whose fishermen he dedicated his Nobel Prize to.

As you finish the tour you will have an opportunity to see some of the most spectacular views of the city from the El Morro fort across the harbor from Havana. This tour takes approximately 4 hours and is done in a convertible classic American car from the 1950's.

Havana Architecture Tour

Take a tour of the wonderful architecture of Havana from Baroque to 50's Modernism with a local architect guide. Specific tour locations can be selected according the your preferred styles of architecture. Duration- approximately 2 hours.

Day 4: Havana- Cienfuegos- Trinidad

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Overnight at Finca Kenia, 2 nights.

You will be met at your hotel by your English-speaking driver/guide and transferred (365 kms.) to Trinidad. Approximate driving time about 4.5 hours.

En route to Trinidad you will stop in Cienfuegos for a city tour. This city tour includes a visit to Jose Marti Park with an explanation of the history and architectural style, a visit to Tomas Terry Theatre, to local markets around the Boulevard and a visit to Palacio del Valle.

After settling in to your hotel in Trinidad you will go for a city tour of Trinidad. This walking tour offers you an introduction to Trinidad a UNESCO world heritage site. Your local expert guide will talk you through the history of the town by visiting its architectural high points and give you some insight into its complex history both in the colonial period and in the years after the revolution. Wear comfortable shoes, as although quaint, the cobbled streets are not for heels.

Finca Kenia is one of the oldest houses in Trinidad, built in the second half of the 19th-century on the edge of Santa Rosa Valley. It has spacious rooms, with a stylish, modern design within a natural and rustic setting. The large garden and back yard looks out on the ruins of a colonial fort. Each room is air-conditioned and is en-suite and has a pretty private sitting area outside the front of the room with table, chairs, rocking chairs and sometimes even a hammock. Hotel facilities include swimming pool and restaurant (serving breakfast, lunch and dinner).

Day 5: Trinidad

Topes De Collantes Day Tour

The great natural park Topes de Collantes is situated between Playa Girón and Trinidad. It's a place of extraordinary beauty and of great scientific value for Cuban botany, zoology and ecology. This protected area of 200 square kms has a great number of endemic species of flora and fauna. On this tour you'll get to hike and bathe in one of the three big waterfalls in the national park.

Afternoon at leisure.

Day 6: Trinidad- Havana

Meals: Breakfast

You will be transferred from Trinidad to Havana. En route you will stop in Playa Girón to go snorkeling.

(Ronel makes his house available for a shower afterwards.). Afterward, you will continue to Havana.

This evening you will enjoy local music at Fabrica Del Arte, a meeting place where the best of the island's avant-garde arts can be enjoyed with all the artistic manifestations under the same roof and with prices making it accessible to the majority of Cubans, this is a place where everyone is an artist.

Unfortunately two days after our arrival there was an eruption of serious civic unrest. Lost worlds and their local agency were extremely efficient in rearranging our schedule so that we could experience as much as possible while insuring our safety.

Garrett Korn at Lost World Adventures is a top notch adventure planner. Every detail was taken care of and nothing left undone. Each guide was an expert in the field and provided amazing one on one daily interaction. THe food was over the top and they catered to our every need. The comment that kept coming up was that this is a "Magical Trip". I would recommend this company and especially Garret to anyone who wants to travel in Panama or anywhere in Central or South America. Already thinking about the next one!

This is my second time traveling with Lost World and once again they did a great job. Somehow they manage to use reliable, helpful people who show up exactly on time and are a pleasure to be with. Our flight was delayed 14 hours and we landed at 1am unsure how we'd be getting to our lodging, but the driver and guide were there waiting for us. Working with Andrew planning the trip is easy as he listens to what you want and also offers his own suggestions. Our family trip entailed a quick stop in Buenos Aires then 6 days in Patagonia and we loved all of it. We had guides two days and the rest of the time we were on our own. I will definitely use them again.

Lost World Adventures helped me plan an amazing trip to the Peruvian Andes. Working with Andrew was a breeze, and our trip was perfect in every detail. Tour guides let us know each day what to expect the following day and when/where to meet them, and our luggage was transported for us when we went off on an overnight adventure. Highly recommended!
