FAMILY VACATION

Round trip in a vintage car – 16 days

We are all experienced travelers, but we wouldn’t have seen and experienced all the things we did in Cuba by travelling all on our own. It was especially great for us to have Fernando, our driver, with us. He was an indescribably great companion. Whenever we had a last-minute change or had to organize something, Fernando would just say “Tranquilo”. I knew we could fully enjoy our vacation and he would take care of it.

Joachim and his family
JOACHIM’S JOURNAL

Joachim and his family chose November as their travel month and arranged a private vintage classic car tour with their Buddy Raúl. They took a plane from Frankfurt to Havana José Marti Aeropuerto. Their personal driver, Fernando, was already waiting for them at the airport with his 55′ Chevy and a warm-hearted “Bienvenidos a Cuba”. It was a perfect start to a vacation for a family wanting to know more about the country and its people. Joachim and his family spent 4 days in Havana to learn more about the culture of Cuba and the country’s metropolis. Afterwards, they headed to Viñales to explore one of the most beautiful regions of Cuba. Then, they traveled to Trinidad which from Viñales takes about 9 hours by Viazul bus. Travelling in a classic car along Cuba’s highway, Calle Central, passing horse-drawn carts and cyclists is a lifetime experience. In Trinidad, they had a great Casa directly in the Plaza Mayor.

The owner’s daughter had her birthday at that time. My children were also invited and we celebrated the evening together in the bars of what was perhaps the most beautiful small town. The hospitality in the Casas was remarkable everywhere. We always felt more than welcome. From Trinidad, we went to Varadero and where our family’s vintage car tour ended. We had an unforgettable time in Cuba. It was especially great for us to have Fernando, our driver, with us. He was an indescribably great companion. Whenever we had a last-minute change or had to organize something, Fernando would just say “Tranquilo”. I knew we could fully enjoy our vacation and he would take care of it. We gained a new perspectives and at the same time take some time off in the most beautiful areas of the country.

JOACHIM’S TRIP

WHAT ELSE THE FAMILY EXPERIENCED

VIÑALES MURAL DE LA PREHISTORIA

At the Mural de la Prehistoria, near Viñales, keep to the right and follow the “road” that leads to El Mirador. There is a lot to discover, off the beaten track.

FAMILY EVENINGS

Spending some nice relaxing hours with the family is always something special. Throughout our whole trip, we had beautiful colonial-style Casas with patios or rooftop terraces where we would end our family evenings together.

Cuban food

Rice and black beans are a firm part of the menu in Cuba. When eating at the restaurants, you will always find plantains, beans, cucumbers and many fresh fruits such as papaya and mangoes. You may want to try it out!
