Cuba

If any place in the world could be described as extraordinary, it’s Cuba. This island has developed at its own pace entirely and can only be truly appreciated when experienced first-hand.

Cubans exude a fiery passion, the country boasts rich artistic and artisanal expression, incredible community values are upheld both in the capital and the provinces, and extraordinary musical talent places Cuba at centre-stage on the international jazz, salsa and son music scenes. Most fascinating is gaining an insight into the dramatic political history that has carved the Cuba of today…

The Cuban revolution remains a major topic of conversation, no matter how many years have passed, and those who have lived through it have remarkable stories to tell. Revolution slogans, symbols, flags and images of war-heroes are found on almost every street, with national newspaper, Granma, still featuring an article on it daily.

Stunning mountain scenery, pristine countryside and untouched white sand beaches allude to Cuba being similar to its Caribbean neighbours, but the vibrant culture that oozes from its cities is incomparable in the region. We encourage in-depth explorations of the west on a week-long trip, or travelling to the lesser visited east on a more generous timescale.

Cuba is the perfect destination for those looking for experience, rather than service or high comfort. We tailor every journey to individual interests. In Cuba particularly, our special access and connections with high profile Cubans allow us to orchestrate exclusive experiences and cultural exchanges for our clients. Our outstanding guides range from university lecturers to art curators and expert historians. Along with culture and adventure, our Cuba specialists design incredible sailing, fishing and diving experiences, for which Cuba is an ideal destination.

What people say

  • We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
  • I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are having...how did you manage it?!
