Your Detination

Havana
Visit the historical centre of the city, founded in 1515 and declared patrimony in 1982. Visit to Plaza de Armas, Plaza de San Francisco, Plaza Vieja, Plaza de la Catedral and the Temple (3 hours walking). Spend 1 hour in an old car through modern Havana. Lunch at a Paladar.

Havana offers a vibrant mix of cultures, history and experiences. Its cobbled streets are alive with cafes, bars and the rhythmic sounds of the rumba. The city’s architecture is an eclectic mix of Baroque, Neo-Classical and Art Deco styles, with the colonial buildings of ‘Old Havana’ earning the city a UNESCO World Heritage Listing. Culturally, Havana is a melting pot of influences from Europe, Africa and the Americas. Its unique ambience and resilient character have lured writers, artists and even the occasional revolutionary in.
Trinidad
Experience slow-paced island living here. Trinidad is a well-preserved Spanish colonial settlement, boasting colonial-style mansions bedecked with Italian frescoes and French chandeliers. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the beauty of Cuba's oldest and most enchanting outdoor museum has been luring tourists ever since.

Surrounded by sparkling natural attractions, Trinidad also offers its visitors gorgeous beaches and lush nature.
Santa Clara
Set in the centre of Cuba, this city boasts new trends, creativity and an edgy youth. The fiery personality of Santa Clara has been shaped by its prestigious university presence and its subsequent rise in modernity. 
Cayo Santa María
Cayo Santa María is the most idyllic of destinations where sun, sand and nature come together. Here you can see the splendid sights with a catamaran trip, explore the huge barrier reef or go snorkelling along the 13kms of beaches.

This archipelago is part of the Buenavista UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. A unique tourist destination thanks to its natural surroundings, you are guaranteed an unforgettable stay.

USA
If you are travelling to the USA or choose a flight option with a US layover, the US authorities have introduced a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority. Passengers who have not applied for and received travel authorisation via ESTA prior to travel may be denied boarding, experience delayed processing, or be denied admission at the US port of entry.

However, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP, guarantees admission to the United States. As with most countries, the final determination of admissibility is made by immigration officials at the port of entry. Please remember that issue of ESTA does not guarantee admissibility to the United States - it is only part of the travel approval process. All queries in relation to this requirement should be addressed via the US Embassy Consular department.

Please remember that if you are refused to board or denied admission at the US port of entry, you will still be subject to our cancellation charges in accordance with the terms of our contract with you.

How do I apply for ESTA?
There is an online application form which is available now at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Prior to travel, you will need to visit this website and fill in the online application (currently in English only).

Please note: An ESTA waiver for connecting flights through the US is not included in this offer.
