Western Cuba

Western Cuba possesses some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the world, and is characterised by rolling tropical countryside, fertile valleys, limestone caverns and underground rivers. The region is also home to rare endemic species of flora and fauna, much of it in UNESCO preserved nature reserves, and a number of small uninhabited islands blessed by beautiful untouched beaches. Cuba's western region is easily accessible from Havana by pre-booked self-drive hire car or private transfer. It is also fully explored as part of our Pearl of the Caribbean tour. Please see our Escorted Tours page for further information.
