One of the most beautiful and most famous Caribbean countries, Cuba is an excellent tourist destination for every type of traveler. Whether you are looking for sunny beaches, colonial towns, natural wonders, great dive sites, astonishing wildlife, traditional agricultural areas, excellent nightlife venues, dance and lots of fun, Cuba is the perfect destination for you! In case you are an active tourist, willing to include more destinations or attractions in one vacation, I suggest you to make some kind of tour in the country. Did I catch your attention? Are you interested in the best tours in Cuba? All you have to do is to read the following guide to find out which are these.

Colonial tour

In one of the previous guides I have already presented you a colonial tour of Cuba, more precisely a tour of the best colonial cities and towns of Cuba. Cuba is well-known for its magnificent settlements full of colonial houses and buildings. The colonial architecture of the cities, the cobblestone streets with classic cars parked lining along, the astonishing and unique colonial squares are extremely attractive for foreign visitors.

If you are also attracted by these aspects, I suggest you to make a colonial tour in Cuba, following Havana, Cienfuegos, Camagüey, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa and Trinidad. I tell you, this journey will be an unforgettable travel experience for you!

Cycling tours

If you are an active tourist, perhaps an adept of cycling tours, visit Cuba and rent a bike! You can make innumerable cycling tours in Cuba, starting from a smaller sightseeing tour in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa or other urban destinations or even some more difficult cycling tours which pass through the amazing Viñales Valley or from one major destination to another.

Which one to choose depends on your preferences in terms of the desired attractions and your skills. If you are a beginner, I wouldn’t recommend you a cycling tour of hundreds of km. Whatever you’d choose, be prepared for an unforgettable journey.
