Cuba: up close and personal

Articles: Cuba: up close and personal

In March of 2013 I escorted the PHS tour to Cuba. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and a step back in time—no cell phones or other electronic devices and old American cars to set the mood. Our journey began in Havana with a tour and history lesson of Old Havana. Then it was off to the outskirts of the city to visit botanic gardens, coffee plantations, and reforestation and agricultural projects.

The second part of the tour took us to the south side of the island to the colonial city of Cienfuego and nearby botanic gardens and a nature reserve. Finally, we visited the UNESCO heritage city of Trinidad and ventured up into the Escambray Mountains  to Codina and Topes de Collantes, a nature reserve.

Every day was a new adventure and packed with memories that will last a lifetime. For further information about a return PHS tour in 2014 visit our Tours page.
