    Romance and Honeymoons

Combine the vibrancy of Havana, Cuba with the relaxed Caribbean coast of Mexico. Start in Old Havana for 3 nights to soak up the faded colonial glory of this UNESCO World heritage site. You will take in the grandeur of faded mansions , a cigar factory and even a ride in 1950s American convertible where you will be able to reimagine Hemingway’s Cuba. Enjoy Cuban mojitos, dine in a traditional ‘Paladares’ restaurant and end with some Cuban rhythms and salsa the night away. Take the short 1 hour plus flight to Cancun, Mexico – the gateway to the beautiful Mayan river area, 1 hour to the south. We love the wonderful Esencia hotel here as your base for 5 nights. This stunning location marries the jungle to the beach – perfect for relaxation or if you want to get active the Mayan ruins of Tulum are nearby as are the cenotes for you to explore and swim in. This is a wonderful combination of a city dripping in history and atmosphere with a luxurious and beautiful beach destination where you can relax afterwards.

  • Get the very best of Havana by being driven around El Morro, the mouth of the Harbour enabling sweeping views of the city
  • Take the trail of Hemingway by visiting his former villa; intact from 1960 with many of his personal effects still in place
  • Enjoy a walking tour around the four squares of Old Havana with a private guide soaking up the history
  • You will have opportunities to explore Cuba’s food history by visiting local markets and learning about the challenges and solutions presented by urban farming
  • The latter part of your trip sees the prime location of the Mexican Caribbean as your base; stunning beaches and ocean – yours to relax and do as little as you please
  • The Mayan Riviera isn’t just about beach; ruins, interesting towns and natural wonders are all within easy reach if you want to explore
