The Genuine Cuba

As Cuba is opening to the world, it naturally attracts an increasing number of visitors interested...

Cuba, a vibrant island nation in the Caribbean, has long been a magnet for adventurous travelers seeking a unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. From the colorful streets of Havana to the pristine beaches of Varadero, this tropical gem offers an unforgettable experience. Join us on a virtual journey as we explore the enchanting charms of Cuba, where time seems to stand still and every corner is filled with stories waiting to be discovered.

Captivated by Havana's Timeless Splendor

Our journey begins in the heart of Cuba, Havana, a city steeped in rich history and colonial grandeur. As we stroll through the cobbled streets of Old Havana, it's impossible not to be captivated by the city's timeless splendor. The crumbling yet beautifully restored buildings, adorned with vibrant hues, serve as a testament to the island's complex past. From the iconic Malecón, where the waves crash against the seawall, to the lively plazas bustling with music and dance, Havana is a feast for the senses.

Immersing in Cuban Culture

No visit to Cuba is complete without immersing oneself in its vibrant culture. The pulsating rhythms of salsa and rumba spill onto the streets, beckoning both locals and visitors to join in the lively dance. The sounds of Buena Vista Social Club fill the air as you sip on a refreshing mojito, embracing the laid-back spirit of the island. Explore the colorful artwork of local artisans, visit the studios of talented musicians, or catch a performance at the renowned Tropicana Cabaret; Cuba's cultural scene is as diverse as it is captivating.

Beyond Havana: Natural Wonders and Idyllic Beaches

While Havana may steal the limelight, Cuba's natural wonders and idyllic beaches are equally mesmerizing. A short drive from the capital city, the lush Viñales Valley presents a picturesque landscape of towering limestone mogotes and vibrant tobacco fields. Take a leisurely boat ride through the pristine waters of the Bay of Pigs, where you can snorkel amidst colorful coral reefs. For a truly tranquil retreat, head to the beautiful beaches of Varadero, Cayo Coco, or Cayo Guillermo, where you can bask in the sun, swim in crystal-clear waters, and sip on a refreshing coconut drink.

A visit to Cuba is an immersive journey into a world unlike any other. From its fascinating history and vibrant culture to its breathtaking natural beauty, the island captures the hearts of all who venture there. Whether you're exploring the architectural wonders of Old Havana, dancing to the rhythmic beats of Cuban music, or simply relaxing on a pristine beach, Cuba promises an unforgettable travel experience. But beyond its surface charm, Cuba is a country of resilience and warmth, a place where the people's spirit shines through in every smile and every conversation. As you bid farewell to this enchanting island, you'll carry with you not only memories of its captivating landscapes but also a deeper appreciation for its people and their enduring spirit.

Tour: Balkan Kaleidoscope
I just returned from a 2 week tour of the Balkans and thoroughly enjoyed the experience offered by Penguin. Communication leading up to the tour was exceptional. Our itinerary was fast paced and comprehensive and the sights were spectacular. Accommodations were were clean and amenities sufficient for the price paid for the tour. The tour leader, bus driver and the local guides were efficient friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Penguin travel, especially for off the beaten path destinations.


Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
