Sightseeing Transfer "from Havana to Cayo Santa Maria"
Sightseeing Transfer from Havana to Cayo Santa Maria
from EUR 72.45
Approximately at 08:00 hrs. We depart from Havana and shortly after join one of the world?s quietest motorways and travel through the fields of sugar cane and citrus fruit plantations towards the revolutionary city of Santa Clara. As we get closer to the city the mountains of the Escambray appear in the distance to the south. Santa Clara is a city of major historical significance with a very close association with the Revolution. On arrival into the city our first stop will be the impressive remembrance square, museum and final resting place of Ernesto ?Che? Guevara. The museum depicts his fascinating revolutionary life, including many letters between himself and Fidel Castro and other leaders and it?s also possible to visit Che mausoleum, a very sacred site in Cuba. After lunch in the city we will visit ?Tren Blindado? the train attacked in the last days of the Revolution by Che Guevara and his men which became a key turning point in the Cuban Revolution and a local guide can lead us through the events. The journey continues travelling north, away from the city where the countryside becomes more picturesque towards the delightful colonial town of Remedios. Time stands still here and the life is certainly very laid back! The central square is dominated by the most interesting Catholic Church, the oldest in Cuba and containing statues and other artefacts that are globally unique! There will be time for a coffee or drink in the oldest café in Cuba, a visit to the church or a relaxing walk around the town in the later afternoon sun. Continuing on, we soon cross the amazing 45 km long causeway snaking out to sea and linking the mainland to the keys, and on arrival you will be dropped at your chosen hotel at approximately 18:00 hrs.
