Insider Access to Cuba’s Culinary Scene
On our Cuba tour, we will spend five action-packed days in vibrant Havana meeting with farmers, chefs and artists. We’ll be invited inside the kitchen of one of Havana’s finest paladares, learn to salsa with Johan, an incredible dancer with a smile that lights up the room, and meet an Afro-Cuban artist whose work evokes the traditions of Santeria. We will even make daiquiris with a celebrated mixologist who recently retired after 39 years at Havana’s legendary El Floridita, where Hemingway was a regular. And you’ll also have an opportunity to see some of Cuba’s iconic sights, such as Havana Vieja, Revolution Square, and Morro Castle.
We’ll venture far off the beaten path to the Viñales Valley, a stunningly serene and beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its tobacco plantations. We’ll meet a third-generation tobacco farmer and learn how he makes organic Cohiba and Montecristo cigars. Your Cuba tour won’t be complete until you try one dipped in honey! We’ll also dine at a delicious private restaurant with panoramic views across the entire valley and stroll through their organic farm. After lunch, we will wander through the Soroa Orchid Botanical Garden and explore Las Terrazas, which is a Unesco Biosphere Reserve and the site of one of the oldest coffee plantations in Cuba.
We then journey to the town of Trinidad, where the sounds of street music and clip-clopping horse carriages evoke the town’s colonial history. A short drive away, we will meet with fishermen bringing in the morning haul, and learn the secrets to making Cuban grilled fish while chatting with a former fisherman turned chef in his open kitchen.
