Essential Cuba

9 Days FROM USD 3,095

Overview

Whispers of change have surrounded Cuba for the past few years, elevating its status as a country to visit now. This small group itinerary will take you to Havana, Vinales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Santa Clara on a short but exciting 9-day adventure of exploration and cultural discovery. Your journey starts in glorious and tumbledown Havana before the pace is slowed a notch or two in the rural valleys of Vinales. Absorb the French atmosphere of coastal Cienfuegos and revel in the steamy heat and beats of colonial Trinidad. Trace the history of the Cuban Revolution and the iconic Che Guevara.

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
