Tanz- & Rundreise Kuba

Dance and round trips to Cuba with muévete

Cuba is an island with a lot of culture, history and charm, with a diverse nature and people with an infectious zest for life and wonderful hospitality.

In the largest city in Cuba, life pulsates. Havana offers a spectacular sight: Waves spill over the Malecón, the famous seafront promenade where lovers stroll and people enjoy the refreshing breeze of the sea.

Experience Cuba in its diversity, with dance, food and culture and benefit from the long experience of our tour guides and their background knowledge.

Salsa Tanzreise nach Havanna

Music and dance are the lifeblood of the Cubans. The roots of Salsa and many other music and dance styles like Rumba, Mambo, Cha-cha-cha, Latin Jazz and Son originated in Cuba and you can let yourself be carried away by the fascinating rhythms.

You will live in Havana with a Cuban host family in the Vedado district. After a rich breakfast you will have 3 hours of dance lessons daily with professional dance teachers.

It begins with 90 minutes of Despelote, a Cuban movement training with elements from Afro-Cuban dances and Rumba. After a well-deserved break we dance 90 minutes Salsa Cubana, Rueda de Casino, Son etc., each participant with a Cuban dance teacher.

The dance tours to Havana take place in spring and autumn.
The number of participants is limited to 20 persons - early registration is recommended. If you have any questions, please contact Teresa by mail.

Cuba round trip

We experience Cuba up close! The focus of this trip is on encounters and experiences with locals. In a small group we take together an insight into the Cuban everyday life. We feel it in different situations and at different insider locations.

On the way we are in the minibus. We sleep in private pensions and eat in Paladares. We swing our hips and the cooking spoon, admire the skilful cigar rollers and mix a real mojito under guidance. Pure relaxation can be found on the white sandy beach, in a Caribbean paradise!

Except on the days of travel, you are free to arrange the daily program according to your personal interests.

The Cuba round trip takes place in autumn.
The number of participants is limited to 10 persons - early registration is recommended. If you have any questions, please contact Teresa by mail.

Travel program in detail

Day 1: Flight with Edelweiss from Zurich to Havana and transfer to the Casas. Welcome drink with small snack.
5 overnight stays in Havana.

Day 2: After breakfast we will board vintage taxis and be chauffeured through the streets of Havana. On foot we explore the old town and take a look at renovated and run-down buildings. We will taste a selection of the national drink at the Museum del Ron. In the midst of Cubans we take the taxi Colectivo back to our Casa, where a Cuban specialty awaits us for dinner.
We end the evening with a nightcap at the Malecón or plunge into Havana's nightlife.

Day 3: Salsa lessons for all! For the introduction to this fascination, a Cuban dance partner is available to each participant. Those who prefer to avoid this experience can refresh their Spanish skills with a language teacher, visit the tobacco factory in Partagas or one of the numerous museums, or take a walk along the famous 12-kilometer-long Malecón.

Day 4: Beach excursion to Playa del Este.

Day 5: Meeting day with locals. Dance, Mojito or cooking course, according to your wishes.

Day 6: Continue towards Viñales. Lunch stop in Las Terrazas. Here the charming landscape of the Sierra del Rosario entices you to go hiking, to take a tour of the interesting village cooperative or to swim in the Rio San Juan.
3 overnight stays in Viñales.

Day seven. The charming landscape of Pinar del Rio is characterized by bizarre limestone hills. In this region the tobacco for the famous cigars is cultivated. We visit the national park, either on horseback or on foot, depending on your wishes.

Day 8: Excursion to Cayo Jutias, one of the most beautiful beaches in Cuba. There is the possibility for snorkeling.

Day 9: Continuation of the journey to Cienfuegos. On the little frequented highway, where we meet horse teams, cyclists and garlic sellers, we drive via Guama (crocodile farm) to the Bay of Pigs to Cienfuegos - the city of the Pearl of the South (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The Palacio de Valle reminds us of the glorious times of the sugar barons, who became rich by the "white gold".
2 nights in Cienfuegos.

Day 10: Today we visit a dolphin show. Who wants to go swimming with the mammals! As an alternative, a bath in the Caribbean Sea is possible. Now the journey continues to Trinidad.
3 nights in Trinidad.

11th day: As a prelude we climb the tower of the Palacio Cantero and get an overview of the charming colonial town of Trinidad. We observe the people strolling through the cobblestone streets or having a chat with their neighbours in front of their house. We see horses and donkeys with trailers, which are still used for daily transportation. In the evening we sit under the starry sky on the long stone stairs or dance to the rhythm of local music groups. Those who want to take it easy go to the Casa de la Trova. There live bands play Son.

Day 12: We drive to the mountains, to the Topes de Collantes National Park. Here we will discover a varied vegetation of palms and conifers. Under the waterfalls or in lagoons we refresh ourselves from the hike. In the Casa del Café we enjoy a freshly brewed coffee.

Day 13: Now it is time to say goodbye to this enchanting little town. We drive back to Havana, where we stroll through the narrow streets one last time and say goodbye at the Malecón with a Mojito or Ron.
1 overnight stay in Havana.

Day 14: Breakfast, packing and transfer to the airport.
