Tour departures

Beyond The Ordinary arrange fully bonded, tailor made holidays and tours to Cuba. Contact one of our experts on 01580 764796, email or contact us via our website.

Our Cuba tours operate between November & April, Cuba’s high season, with summer departures dependent on demand.

Please note that prices vary from departure to departure with special offers often available.

As an ATOL bonded tour operator, we are able to book flights between the UK and Cuba, generally only requiring a deposit rather than full payment at the time of booking. Further details on current options can be found in the flights section of our website. Alternatively, just give us a call and we can run through up to date options.

Cuba Tour Virgin Atlantic

Should clients wish to arrange their own flights, we are happy to simply book the tour and take care of the visa requirements. In either scenario, clients benefit from our complete financial protection.

With a minimum requirement of just two travellers, and a maximum group size of twenty, all our Cuba tours are guaranteed departures, allowing you to plan your holiday with confidence. A typical group size would typically be around ten clients and please note too, our tours are all Adults Only.

While our three tours are marketed individually, they are actually three versions of the same tour. That is to say, the 11 Night Cuba Tour is (almost) exactly the same as the 7 Night Cuba Tour but with four nights added on; ditto with the 14 Night Cuba Tour.

What this means in practise is that, if you opt for the fourteen night tour, there may be eight fellow travellers with you for the first week but only four, two or just you for the second week.

Tour itineraries

In terms of the itinerary, our tours start in Havana and, for the seven night version / first week, focus on the key highlights of western Cuba – Vinales, Las Terrazas, Santa Clara, Trinidad & Cienfuegos.

Clients opting for the 11 or 14 night tours will get to experience eastern Cuba, including the likes of Camaguey, Bayamo, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa.

Although we don’t offer a specific tour of eastern Cuba, in order to offer as much flexibility as possible, it is possible for clients to book onto the second half of the 14 Night Tour (the part that takes in eastern Cuba). Details and prices are available on request.

Single travellers

Our Cuba tours are particularly popular with solo travellers.

Not only do tours provide a degree of sociability while on holiday but, in a country such as Cuba where getting around isn’t easy, it also means that all the arrangements for transport and sightseeing are taken care of.

At this time, we do not offer a room share option for single travellers although single supplements are relatively modest.

Beach extensions

After what is a fair amount of travel, many of our clients opt to extend their Cuba holiday with time at the beach.

While it is up to individual clients to decide which beach they wish to end up, as Cuba is a relatively large island (over one thousand kilometres long) there are clearly practical issues to consider.

Our 7 Night Cuba Tour starts and finishes in Havana so, for most clients, it makes sense to end up at a beach within easy reach. Our nearest featured resort to Havana is Jibacoa (a one hour drive), with Memories Jibacoa (pictured below) is a popular option.

Varadero, Cuba’s largest beach resort, is approximately two hours’ drive from Havana and, although more built up, does offer a wide range of accommodation options.

The Cayos de Villa Clara are an option but, at some five hours’ drive from Havana, are somewhat inconveniently located.

Tailor Made Tours

If you’d rather travel on an independent, tailor made tour of Cuba then there are clearly thousands of different options that we can suggest.
