This one is open to climbers of all skill levels, including beginners, but if you are an experienced climber, this trip is especially one to consider because there are a lot of great routes.

Amazing cultural experiences, dancing, remote beaches, turquoise waters, limestone sport climbing, and everything that is an adventure of a lifetime.
Havana is a city where art is bursting at the seams, the rhythms of salsa flow through the streets, and the laughter and lively energy of the Cuban people is contagious. You will wander the cobblestone streets, admire the well worn beauty of this old Spanish city, dance, laugh, eat amazing food, stroll along the old sea wall, known as the malecon, curving itself around the city.
Vinales is small quaint country town surrounded by limestone. You will wander each day through tobacco plantations, cute colorful homes, past horses, pigs, and chickens as you stroll to the climbing.
