The sailing itinerary

Set sail through Cienfuegos Bay and reach out into the Caribbean Sea navigating by uninhabited islands, and onto Cayo Largo and the beautiful Playa Sirena beach. From Cayo Largo navigate to the Isle of Youth where pirates used to go ashore and were known to hide their stolen treasure. It is also said that Robinson Crusoe inhabited the isle. The isle is where Fidel Castro was imprisoned at the beginning of the rebellion.

 

Things to enjoy

The southern coast is ideal for snorkeling in the crystal clear waters with colorful corals and an abundance of tropical fish. Who knows you might even find some sunken treasure.  As the sun sets below the yardarm enjoy a refreshing cocktail, a Cuban cigar. Cuba has some delicious tropical fruits and the best lobsters

Havana

Your visit to Havana will be a memorable experience with your private tour guide showing you the highlights of Old Havana, the historical centre designated as a World Heritage Site. Classic 50’s American cars ply the streets, the vibrant sounds of Latin rhythms, the home of Havana Club rum, Mojito cocktails and the world’s best Cuban cigars.
