Captivating Cuba CCF

Cuba

Cuba is the jewel of the Caribbean. Discover this multifacetted island.

Have you ever dreamt of exploring Cuba coast-to-coast on a motorcycle? How about sipping the finest rum while admiring the Caribbean moves of salsa, mambo and cha-cha-cha? Or mingling with chatty locals proudly welcoming you to their unique country? If your mind is already flying towards Cuba, this motorcycle tour from Havana to Santiago de Cuba should definitely be high on your dream list. After an evening spent in the seductively bohemian Havana, we move east to the famous beach resort Varadero. Let’s dip our toes in the tropical waters before heading inland across the curves of the Sierra del Escambray and then along the Bay of Pigs.

Cienfuegos and Trinidad, both on our route, are incredible colonial towns and we’ll make sure you have enough time to soak in the whole experience. The travel proceeds towards Oriente, the easternmost region of Cuba, rich in culture and still a hidden gem. After spending a night in Camaguey, we reach again the coast, enjoying the splendid beaches around Guardalavaca and Baracoa. Our tour ends in the charming Santiago, from which we will take a domestic flight back to Havana.


* 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.
