Just be careful when you’re in the water, as sea urchins can be a problem here.

Back on the land, you can go cycling or hiking. If you rent a bicycle, be careful on the cobblestones and remember your bike will be of the vintage variety. The trekking is great in the Sierra del Escambray, the local mountains. A folklore dance and music show in one of the open-air venues is highly recommended; a great chance to immerse yourself in Cuba’s African, French and Spanish-influenced music and dance culture.

    Originally from Wahroonga, suburb to the north of Sydney, Australia, it is no secret that Tais is one very positive vibrant person. She has a big love for the sea and yoga lifts her spirit gracefully. Yoga and the ocean calms and compliments her style of practice, and others feed off her light and energy. A well-travelled woman who has met so many other beautiful and like-minded yogis, she has learned many variations and styles like Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa yoga. She finally decided that this was her calling. Many years later, Tais was inspired to become a yoga instructor.

Havana

Havana’s Old City is well preserved and was designated a World Heritage Site in 1982. The streets are lined with colonial architecture, 16th century fortresses, and countless churches.

Viñales

Viñales is a small and charming rural village. It’s probably the easiest place to mingle with locals in Cuba, who are very sociable. Many of them love nothing better than to drink rum and dance the night away.

Cienfuegos

Cienfuegos is the gem of the south, a seaside town of relaxing streets and dazzling buildings that strike a beautiful pose by the water.

Trinidad

There’s no doubt it’s one of Cuba’s alluring destinations, a great place to wander around, with almost every scene offering a photo opportunity. You will see as locals casually smoke their huge cigars on the doorsteps of their homes and hear the old Chevrolets rumbling by.
