What to expect

The Viñales Valley is Cuba's prime ‘tobacco country' – but to highlight this aspect is to do a disservice to an area of such natural beauty that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this full day excursion, you'll discover its mogote landscapes, enjoy a boat trip in the famous Indian Cave and visit a cigar factory.

After pick-up, you'll head west to Pinar del Rio province. The Viñales Valley is right in the heart of this rural backwater where sombrero-clad farmers are frequent sight. Think palm trees and tobacco plantations set against ‘mogotes' – limestone hills that rise steeply from the valley floor. One, the Mogote Pita, is decorated with a huge mural depicting prehistoric scenes.

There'll be a visit to the Indian Cave, where you'll enjoy a boat ride along its underground river, which emerges through a crevice into a jungle. After lunch, you'll enjoy a panoramic view of Pinar del Rio city before dropping into a tobacco factory to see how a real Cuban cigar is rolled.

Then you'll head to Cojimar, the fishing village that inspired him to pen The Old Man and the Sea.We break for a cocktail and lunch at Las Terrazas restaurant, where he used to dine with the skipper of his yacht. Then it's on to Floridita – where an imposing statue of the man props up the end of the bar – and the Bodeguita del Medio, two of his favourite hangouts. You can bid farewell to Ernest at the Hotel Ambos Mundos, where his old room is now a mini-museum, which exhibits unmistakable traces of his presence such as empty bottles of rum and bourbon.

Havana – Postcards From The Past

The Cuban Revolution was two for the price of one. Out went a crooked dictator and with him the mob. Havana was a playground for the Mafia, as it raked in millions from gambling and vice. This atmospheric tour takes you in a vintage car back to the 1950s and hotels associated with the gangsters – the Riviera and Nacional.To get into the mood, you'll hop into a classic car from the era and see some of Havana's top sights. Revolution Square, the crumbling Malecon promenade and the US-inspired Capitol. You'll then come face-to-face with the Mafia's activities at the Hotel Riviera, built by the ‘Mob's Accountant' Meyer Lansky. To complement the casino, he had a coffin-shaped pool built.Then, it's on to the Hotel Nacional. Learn about the mob's history and check out the celeb-bedecked Hall of Fame. Sip on a cocktail at the bar before dinner in one of the restaurants. Rounding off the day, is the hotel's exuberant Parisien Cabaret show – think feather headdresses and mambo dancing.
