Havana Pure is the base of all our dance holidays in Cuba. In week 1 you will have a intensive dance course at our danceschool in Havana. In the 2nd week you will have the choice to spend time in either Varadero, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba, Playa del Este for 4 days, or to stay in Havana. The last 3 days we will all be back in Havana, where we will spend the next 2 days at the danceschool to get it truly right and end the trip with a big Fiesta Cubana.

In the afternoon you can bring a visit to the “Castilla de la Fuarza”. This Castilla is the
oldest fortress of Havana. Here you can look at the famous statue “La Geraldina”.
This female figure is the symbol of Havana. You probable recognise her from the
Havana Club rum label.

In the morning you start off with your daily three hours dance classes. Afterwards
you can join one of the tours through the rum museum at Havana.  In the afternoon
it is possible to join the group to visit a salsa matinee at one of the Casa de la Musica”.
If you decide to do something different this day, we like to suggest a stroll at the
 “Malecon”, also known as the boulevard of passion.
 
Day five and six: The dance floors of the sparkling nightlife of
Havana

Good morning!
First you will start off with another three hours of Salsa classes. In the afternoon
you have some free time on your hands. We suggest you could go to the nearby
beach “Playa del Este”.  This is day four of your salsa trip, and you are now able to
enjoy the rich nightlife of  Havana. The team of viaDanza will keep you informed of
the daily agenda concerning salsa and dancing. Of course when there are enough
participants, viaDanza will arrange a taxi and dance partners to join you at the nightlife
in Havana.

Day seven: On our way to Trinidad

You had a few wonderful days in Havana, but today is the day that we take the air-conditioned shuttle bus to Trinidad. On the way to Trinidad you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Cuban landscape and absorb the beautiful nature. After arrival in Trinidad we take you to your accommodation. The rest of the day is your, you will have still enough time to explore this sparkling city that was added to the world heritage list of Unesco in 1988.

Day eight:  Enjoy and explore Trinidad and its surroundings

Because Trinidad is surrounded by many cultural and natural places you could go to the “Toppes de Collantes” 775 meters high, and about an hours drive from Trinidad city.
You can make a beautiful walk through the misty forest that leads you to the waterfall “Salto del Caburni”.
In the evening you can enjoy the lively atmosphere of the inner-city with many bands that play at the Plaza de Mayor.

Day nine & ten: Trinidad 

Trinidad has many interesting museums that are definitely worth visiting. Or you can just walk around the old city with it's cob stones that was once named the "Pirate City" because this was the home to many pirates. A few centuries later the city belonged to the sugar lords because of the many sugar cane plantings. Many of the pirate and sugar lord houses are restored and look like you are still in this exciting era.
You could also visit Cuba's biggest church the cathedral "Iglesia Parriquial de la Santisma Trinidad or have a visit to the “Valle de los Ingenios” where you will find numbers of ruins of  sugar factories. There is also a 44 meter high watch tower where they used to keep an eye on all the slaves that worked the field. We have to warn you that this tower is not suitable for people that are afraid of heights.
Once you have climbed the tower you will have a magnificent view of Trinidad and its surroundings.
Another thing you could do is to take a (coco) taxi to the closest beach " Playa de Ancon". This is relaxing on its best!

Whatever you decide to do these few days, you will not get bored!

Day eleven: Adiós Trinidad and Buenos dias Havana

Today you arrive back in Havana " The grand lady of the Caribbean". The rhythm of the city will once again feel like magic. We definitely will let you enjoy this magic and take you out for a evening tour and let you enjoy another Caribbean night.

Day twelve:

In the morning you will have another salsa lesson and you will get all the space to perfect your salsa figures.
In the afternoon you are free to 'yet again' explore Havana city and visit all those places that you have not seen yet (and believe us you are still not able to see all that Havana has to offer).

Day thirteen: Farewell party at the Finca

Salsa, salsa and yet again salsa!
We will take you by bus to the countryside where you will enjoy a day full of Music,
dance and when you wish a dive in the pool.  You will be served a typical Creole barbeque.
In the evening you will go back to Havana. At this Point you will say goodbye to the viaDanza crew.

Day fourteen: Last day in the city of Havana and back home again

Today is all yours. You can enjoy the city of Havana for the last time. Maybe buy those last souvenirs to take home or have a city trip in one of the tourist busses going around Havana.
Later this day your transport will arrive to take you to the airport.

At this moment it is "Goodbye Havana"
We, the team of viaDanza, hope you had a joyous trip and hope to see you again!
