Costa Rica Traverse

The Coast to Coast Team ran a first rate operation. Would I do it again? Yes! I would have turned around on the beach and set off to do the full traverse right there and then.

Mexico and Cuba Explorer

This journey traces the archaeological and cultural attractions of Mexico and highlights of Cuba. Ancient culture is immediately apparent near Mexico City where we view the huge Sun and Moon pyramids at Teotihuacan. We take a boat ride in the magnificent Sumidero Canyon and spend time in San Cristobal de la Casas. Visit the stunning jungle ruins of Palenque, with its dramatic Mayan step pyramid architecture. We fly to vibrant Havana to take in the sights of the city. We make our way through the memorable Vinales Valley with unique limestone mogotes, to Las Terrazas. From spectacular Cienfuegos we travel to the preserved sixteenth century city, Trinidad and the colonial town Sancti Spiritus. We continue to the historical town of Bayamo and lively city of Santiago de Cuba before returning to the picturesque city of Havana.

traveller reviews

The most memorable part was the food, cocktails, old cars, fascinating culture and Cuban music. Cuba is a fascinating country and a must see before it changes. It's like going back in time and living in the fifties again.
