Optional activities on the Tour

Trek to the waterfall in Trinidad

On our tours of Cuba, many optional activities are on offer. These can be arranged (and paid for) in Cuba, at local prices. Our guides are always on the lookout for new cool things to do in Cuba and will help arrange these activities for you. There is no need to book ahead, and you can decide at the last minute while on the tour, which activities you will like to do.

Unlike many group tours in Cuba, the guide is prohibited from taking any form of commission from arranging these activities for you. In this way, the guide's advice is not compromised and she/he will recommend and help you choose activities that you will get most enjoyment from, rather than recommending activities that will earn the guide extra money on the side.

Some of the things to do on our tours in Cuba are listed below.
