Cuba: La Isla Grande

La Isla Grande

The trip was an extremely busy one and we did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as the first 3 days were non stop coach travel, which was pointed out in the itinerary but still a bit of a shock. The whole trip was one of contrast and the guide was excellent, giving us lots of information about the culture and the revolution. The people were delightful and friendly and we felt totally safe in all the towns and cities. Just loved all the 1950's cars and the music. Prices were OK food was cheap and I actually got fed up of Lobster. The only disappointing part of the holiday was a last minute change of the hotel on the first night. We were put in a total dive that was dirty and without aircon. A letter of complaint will be going to Exodus. Don't expect too much from the hotels but generally they were reasonably clean. the home stay being the best.

La Isla Grande = Fantastico!

An extremely well organised trip starting and ending in Havana. Covering the entire island by land rather than taking any internal flights gives the opportunity to experience the diversity of Cuba's landscape. A range of accommodation including colonial hotels and casa particulares means a comfortable stay throughout. Knowledgeable tour guide(s) provided a superb education into Cuban history and politics through to the current day with visits to key locations. I recommend this trip to anyone wanting to understand Cuba, it's people, history, culture, creativity and energy.

Very interesting and informative trip. Decaying towns and infrastucture that are crying out for investment that should hopefully soon be available to this country. Only hope that the Cubans are able to control the surge in international interest and able to keep their wonderful independance and way of life for the better.

This tour gave a very wide coverage of Cuba from Havana to Baracoa on the far south eastern tip of the island. We learned a great deal about the history of the island, particularly the events leading up to the revolution and events following it.Also, there was emphasis on the geography, geology and ecology of the island as well as plenty of opportunity to meet and interact with the Cubans themselves-the real Cuba

Excellent trip. Lots of travelling but also lots to see and learn. A lovely set of fellow travellers made this holiday both rewarding and memorable. Freddie, our guide was Cuban and very knowledgable on the island ie current affairs, history, flora, fauna etc etc; he also had the ability to keep us informed with what we needed to know when we needed it and ensure that each day was well prepared for.

La Isla Grande - Cuba

An all round great trip with a good mix of bus travel and sighteeing / trekking. (after an intensive first three days of driving). The number of travellers was just about right - 18, I think that any more than that would not be so good. I liked the mix of people on the trip. The food and drink were much better than we were led to expect and indeed, we came back having spent only half of our estimated budget, so good value too. Hotels were of the standard you should expect on this kind of trip; there were no unpleasant surprises, unless you would count 2 lizards who were also guests in one of our rooms as a surprise. Not too many insect bites either!
