"El caiman verde" or "the green cocodile" – that’s what Cuba is called due to its dense vegetation and its shape. It is the largest island in the Caribbean. With an area of approx. 110 000 kilometres squared you will find primeval and rain forests, endless sandy beaches with a crystal clear, blue sea and the mountains of the Sierra Maestra situated at the Southern tip of the island in this colourful paradise. Only very few anticipate that the island renowned for its joy for life is just as Edenic for cycling holidays as for a beach vaccation. It has a well developed infrastructure and due to very little traffic even motorways are attractive routes on which you can comfortably and safely enjoy your cycling bliss. Another advantage is the overall flat terrain with only a few hills dotted around.
A cycling holiday across Cuba – from Havanna to Guardalavaca
We start our tour in the vibrant capital of the country Havanna, renowned for its colonial architecture and of course the world-famous Malecón situated at the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. After an extensive visit of the city you cycle past the 'Bay of Pigs’, which is famous for the failed invasion, towards the South-East to Cienfuegos. From there your unique cycling holiday leads you past mango and sugar cane plantations and beaches lined with palm trees all the way to the foot of the Sierra Maestra. En route amongst other things you visit local families, a rum destillery and colonial buildings on Fincas or former plantations. In the evenings enjoy the fresh fruit and cocktails of this tropical island. As crowning glory you get to stay in a 5-star spa resort situated on the beach where you can reminisce about the highlights of your cycling holiday and add a few new ones.
