9-Days Enduro Tour through Western Cuba

Day 1: Arrival

After your arrival, you can get a first impression as well as some first information on your holiday destination Cuba while enjoying your welcome drink in the hotel. Optionally, you can get to know the Cubanian night life and have dinner in the old town of Havana. Your night out will be accompanied by some live music and dancing in one of Havana's many small bars while strolling through vivid streets.

Day 2 (50 km): Test ride in Havana

After breakfast, we will discover Havana's historical old town as well as its culinary highlights by foot. After going back to the hotel, we will switch our mode of transport and continue on our travel enduros. To get used to the motorbikes, we will go on a short and relaxed ride through the city. In the evening, you will be back at the hotel just in time for dinner at the hotel or in the city.

Day 3 (130 km): Tour through Sierra del Rosario

Today, we will ride on the roadway roadway Malecón towards the west. On our way through Miramar, Jaimanitas and Mariel, we reach Sierra del Rosario, a low mountain range, and finally the nature reserve Las Terrazas. The complete route is paved; however, the roads in Sierra del Rosario are of different conditions and quality, which is great for our enduros! In the hotel “Moka” or a comfortable and pleasant private accommodation in Soroa, we will spend the night.

Day 4 (180 km): Tour to Viñales

After our tour through the impressive mountainscape and over narrow streets, we get to “Cueva de los Portales”. This cave is fantastically situated and was used as headquarters by Ernesto Che Guevara during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1960. After a break, we continue our tour to Viñales where we can relax in one of the idyllically located hotels or in private accommodations in the city center.

Day 5 (80 km): Discovering the environment

After breakfast we discover the surroundings by motorbike. Narrow streets lead us to Moncada, a cute village west of Viñales. The burial places of numerous fighters of the Cuban Revolutionary War and of militia soldiers can be found here under the open sky. “Gran Caverna de Santo Tomás”, part of a cave system extending for kilometres which has been opened for visitors at the beginning of the 21st century, is only a few steps away from here.

Day 6 (250 km): Towards the far western corner

After a short stop at cigar factory “Francisco Donatien” in the provincial capital Pinar del Río, we move on southwards towards Sumidero, one of the most beautiful routes of Cuba. A relatively good but little frequented road leads us through picturesque valleys to Guane and further to María La Gorda where we stop for lunch. Afterwards we ride further towards the west, up to our destination Cabo San Antonio where we stay overnight.

Day 7 (180 km): Back to the east

On our way back from Cabo San Antonio to Havana, we keep riding on Carretera Central, the most important arterial road running through the whole island from west to east. It leads us through Cuba’s main tobacco-growing area where we stop for a visit at the private tobacco plantation “Vega del Tabaco”. After getting some information about tobacco growing and processing and spending our lunch time, we move on to San Diego de los Banos and enjoy a delicious BBQ on the terrace of a simple but clean hotel.

Day 8 (160 km): Back to metropolis

On our way back, we follow Carretera Central up to Candelaria. We cross the highway, ride past over adventurous roads to Cabanas and Quiebra Hacha up to Mariel. We take the final leg via the coastal motorway ending in Jaimanitas. Riding on Quinta Avenida, we quickly reach Miramar and finally Malecón leading us back to the old town. After return of the motorbikes, the transfer bus takes us back to the old city where we can review the highlights of the day during dinner.

Day 9: Time to say goodbye or time to enjoy some more days in Cuba

This day is at leisure. If you want to stay some more days in Cuba, we would be pleased to help you with an additional booking.
