Classic Cuba CKU

Cuba

This motorcycle tour through Cuba is loaded with culture, great scenery and good roads!

Cuba, the Caribbean island full of history, is not only famous for its communist regime, but also for its cities, beaches and the hospitality of the people. Discover the secrets of Cuba on this motorcycle tour! Starting in La Habana and heading out West, we ride to Viñales, famous for its beautiful landscape full of limestone rocks and caves as well as for its tobacco fields. Learn about the production of the famous Cuban cigars and taste one if you feel like it.

On we ride to the nature reserve of Las Terrazas to take a bath in its beautiful waterfalls before we will visit the museum at the Bay of Pigs on our way to Cienfuegos. Our next stop is the city of Trinidad, part of the UNESCO world heritage and considered by many as one of the most beautiful cities at the Caribbean coast. Curvy streets will then take us up the mountains of Topes de Collantes, where we get to see lush tropical forests and waterfalls and enjoy the view over Lake Hanabanilla. The island of Santa Maria with its white dream beaches and crystal-clear turquoise sea is our next destination, before we head to Remedios and back to the idyllic North to Varadero – and eventually reach our starting point, La Habana.


* Ride Cuba with acclaimed moto-journalist and Cuba expert Christopher P. Baker. It’s true to say… no-one knows Cuba as well as Christopher, the Lowell Thomas Award 2008 ‘Travel Journalist of the Year’ and the author of six travel guidebooks about Cuba. National Geographic acclaimed him “one of the world’s leading authorities on Cuba travel and culture.” In 1996, Chris shipped his BMW R100GS PD to Cuba and made a three-month, 7,000-mile journey as a licensed journalist, resulting in publication of his Moon Cuba guidebook and his award-winning travelogue Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro’s Cuba.

In January 2013, Christopher led the first licensed U.S. motorcycle group tour of Cuba end-to-end since the 1959 Revolution. He has since led numerous motorcycle tours in Cuba on behalf of Edelweiss Bike Travel, Bob’s BMW of Maine, and the BMW Riding Academy of Turkey, etc., as well as almost one hundred tours to Cuba on behalf of National Geographic Expeditions and other tour companies. In addition to riding “sweep,” ensuring the cohesion of the group, and attending to logistics, Christopher brings something unique to these tours… an ability to share a profound knowledge of Cuba, providing unparalleled context for your travel experience. Our tours with Chris are U.S. legal under the “support for the Cuban people” license.
