Havana to Varadero safari or how a dull transfer turns into a unforgettable journey. We take you a first hour along a coastal road in a Classic American Vintage car of the 50ies with profesional driver. Then we change to self-drive jeeps and get into the dirt roads of the green tropical Valley of Yumuri.
After a hearty breakfast Cubafortravel will entertain your transfer day of about 150 kilometers from the fascinating city of Havana to the beach resorts in Varadero in the most surprising way.
09 AM After putting the luggage in the bus you take Classic American Vintage cars of the 50ies with profesional driver to leave the city and continue along the coastal road Via Blanca. You drive by through the tunnel of Havana under the bay and have the Atlantic Ocean with a nice breeze on your left for quite a while. We pass by the beaches of Havana where the locals go for their summer swim. After an hour drive we arrive at the view point Bacunayagua. Here the views over the sea and the Valley of Yumuri are enormous.
10H30 AM We say goodbye to the Classic Vintage cars and get modern jeeps which we can steer ourselves. With the our guide in the first car we drive now into this beautifully green valley off road, with lots of nature and agriculture around. We make stops in small villages and farms so we get to know the simple life of the farmers who live close to nature and work the land with their animals and bare hands. The trip takes us till the city of Matanzas where we enjoy the view from Monserrate look-out point over the city and the huge bay.
12H30 AM We continue to the ecological restaurant La Arboleda along the Banks of the river Canimar. Here we have a rest and get small snacks from the typical creole kitchen like banana chips.
13H00 We leave the jeeps and take small speed boats which we steer ourselves over the Canimar river canyon. We go all the way up to the r iver mound surrounded by tropical forest. We end up at the place La Boca where at last we see our bus back that takes us swiftly to our luxurious resort in Varadero. Nicely in time for our buffet lunch (around 14H30).
