TRIP OF THE WEEK

The Jewish Chronicle - - Life/travel -

IF you have been in­spired to visit Cuba by the re­cent Che Gue­vara movies, you may fancy a nine-day trip with Ex­plore which is a bit more about the his­tory and cul­ture of Cas­tro’s Com­mu­nist par­adise than a mere whizz through Ha­vana be­fore flop­ping on to a beach.

Called Back­roads and Beaches of Cuba, it be­gins in colo­nial Ha­vana tak­ing in the spec­tac­u­lar (if crum­bling) ar­chi­tec­ture, and in­cludes a visit to a Cuban ci­gar fac­tory and a night of salsa be­fore bask­ing on the sandy beaches of Trinidad and walk­ing the nearby for­est trails. It con­cludes with a trip to Ché Gue­vara’s im­pres­sive mau­soleum. De­part­ing 15 Novem­ber, the tour costs £1,185 per per­son (based on two shar­ing) and in­cludes flights, all trans­porta­tion, seven nights’ B&B and the ser­vices of a tour leader (0844 499 0901; www.ex­plore. co.uk).
