1. Day: From Havana to Viñales (260 km)
We meet in the morning in the Western district Miramar to take over the motorcycles and then head westwards. Using smaller streets that are light in traffic we will arrive in Las Terrazas, an ecological rural community and recreational site, where we enjoy a bath in the river San Juan. We can also have lunch here (optional).
We continue on through the Sierra del Rosario towards the Valley of Viñales, crossing one of the few areas in Cuba that still have natural vegetation. Road conditions get worse here, but riding an Enduro this is where the fun is. After a short stop in San Diego de los Baños we enter the national park La Güira and reach the Cueva de los Portales, a large cave that functioned as commando post for Ché Guevara during the Cold War Crisis and that now houses a small museum.
From there it takes us another hour over bad roads, but through beautiful landscapes before we finally reach the Valley of Viñales. We stop at the lookout point Los Jazmines before entering the village and checking in to our casa particular.
2. Day: Through tobacco fields (340 km)
After breakfast we leave Viñales, heading westwards. We make a stop at the Cemetary of the Militiaman in La Moncada. Continuing our motorbike trip, we pass the Gran Caverna de Santo Tomás, which is one of the biggest cave systems in Cuba and Latin America. After passing through the small town Sumidero one of the most beautiful stages in Cuba awaits us.
The street from Sumidero to Isabel Rubio meanders alongside a picturesque valley with basically no traffic. From Isabel Rubio we hit the Carretera Central, passing through wide fields of tobacco until we reach San Juan y Martínez, where we can enjoy lunch (optional). After lunch we continue heading eastwards until we arrive back in Miramar and return the motorbikes. A transfer will bring us to our accommodation in Central Havana.
We will realize this Cuba motorbike trip from 1 person at your preferred date. In case of several registrations for the same day, we reserve the right to organize a group tour.
We will be happy to help you with a complementary travel program such as city trips or beach stays.
