Cuban Adventures has been specialising in Cuba since 2005. The core of our operation are our small group Cuba tours. We don't operate a large network of tours worldwide and instead dedicate ourselves exclusively to providing the best service possible in Cuba. This, simply put, makes us good at it! ...More about who we are.
Our Cuba Tours
Our tours of Cuba aim to give our travellers a taste of the 'real' Cuba. Apart from visiting some of Cuba's highlights, these tours concentrate on contact with the Cuban people and the Cuban culture. Here are some of the main features of our Cuba tours:
- Local Guide - Each tour is accompanied by one of our local Cuban tour guides.
- Accommodation is almost always in guesthouses, which are small privately run businesses typically run by local families.
- Small groups - a maximum of 12 or 16 travellers on our regular departures.
- Flexible - we leave plenty of time on our tours of Cuba for participants to do their own exploring in Cuba. Our tour guides also offer the service of arranging optional activities, excursions, and day trips for the group or for individuals in the group, at each destination in Cuba.
- Value for Money - our tours represent some of the best value for money on the market for Cuba. This is not because we cut corners, but rather because we benefit from being a small and efficiently run business with low advertising and marketing costs, and because we operate our own tours in Cuba directly - so there are no 'middlemen' involved.
Are these Cuba tours for me?
Our small group tours of Cuba are ideal for the discerning traveller who wants to have a more authentic experience of Cuba's unique culture and society. On the tours, there is ample free time for pursuing your own interests, and there are numerous optional activities that the tour guide can arrange for you at local prices.
Our tours are by no means luxury tours of Cuba, but accommodation and transport is clean and comfortable. If you are keen to participate in Cuba's local culture, are ready for some unexpected adventures on the tour, and enjoy sharing these with some fun, like-minded companions, one of these small group Cuba tours is definitely for you.

Best Time of Year to Go to Cuba
We believe the best time to go to Cuba is anytime you can! However, the time to go to experience the most pleasant climate in Cuba is probably between the months of November and May. In June, July, and August, the temperatures in Cuba can often be uncomfortably hot and accompanied by very high humidity levels. September and October are the months you are most likely to encounter a hurricane, which may disrupt your travel plans. Click here to read more about the weather and climate in Cuba.
