* Private sightseeing transfer from Havana to Varadero:

Finca Vigia, Hemingway’s former home in Cojimar

After being collected from your chosen hotel in Havana at approximately 10am, your private vehicle will take you through the suburbs of Havana, making a stop at Finca Vigia, the former Cuban home of the legendary writer and resident of Havana, Ernest Hemingway. The beautiful mansion house remains untouched since he left expecting to return. The tour covers the gardens and allows us to look into the rooms from outside. Continue to the village of Cojimar, the setting for Hemingway’s world famous book “The Old Man and the Sea“ and after a short orientation walk, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in the village. 

After lunch, continue your journey along the coastal Via Blanca road stopping at Bacunayagua Bridge, Cuba’s tallest bridge with fantastic views of the Yumuri Valley far below. Try the fabulous Pina Colada at this place, freshly made with real local pineapples.

Matanzas town will be your next stop, also known as “the Venice of Cuba”. Tour around this pleasant colonial town overlooking Cuba’s largest bay.

Arrive in Varadero in the late afternoon where you will terminate at your chosen hotel at approximately 4pm.

Your private sightseeing transfer includes:

Transport as required with driver/ guide, entrance to Finca Vigia, short tour of Cojimar, three course lunch in Cojimar, scenic stop at Bacunayagua Bridge and short orientation tour of Matanzas.
