LGBTQ honeymoon in Cuba

CUBA

LGBTQ+ HONEYMOON

From 2,849€
14 days Departures all year round

Honeymoon with lots of flavour

This honeymoon is designed for you to enjoy Cuba in this new stage in which LGBTQ+ rights are undergoing a revolution thanks to Mariela Castro, political scientist and sexologist. Director of the Cuban National Centre for Sex Education (Cenesex) since 2000, she has led the reinvention of LGBTQ+ tourism since its beginnings. Over the last few years, Cuba's gay scene has changed a lot, with the celebration of its Gay Pride and the boom of LGBTQ+ bars and clubs making it even more vibrant and flamboyant. On the Malecon itself, whole swathes of the wall are dedicated to LGBTQ+ socialising, all of which has made Cuba the biggest emerging LGBTQ+ destination today.

Itinerary

Cuba has a lot to offer for a special and unforgettable honeymoon, so we have put together an itinerary with some of the island's essential places ending at its best beaches.

Day 1 / Origin - La Habana
Welcome to Cuba!

An assistant will be waiting for you for the transfer to the hotel. Welcome, accommodation and rest of the day at leisure to start exploring the city.
Day 2 / La Habana
We start the day with a walking tour through the charming and charismatic Habana Vieja. We will visit the Capitolio Nacional (outside), the Grand Theatre and the Museum of Fine Arts, the Floridita Bar, Ambos Mundos, as well as popular exchange and gallery visits where you will be able to see how the movement coexists in the Cuban daily life. In the evening you can sit back and enjoy the famous Tropicana cabaret show, with plenty of rum.
Day 3 / La Habana
We explore modern Habana with visits to the Revolution Square, visit a non-profit gay-run gallery and studio that supports LGBTQ artists and artists with mental disabilities and unique Cuban Art Brut artists. We will stop at the Hotel Nacional to visit the Hall of Fame and taste a mojito, continue in our classic Cuban car along the Malecon Habanero. At nightfall, again our local experts will take you to taste the gay night of Habana.
Day 4 / La Habana
It’s time to get to know Mi Cayito. This beach delights gays, lesbians and the rest of the LGBTQ community, whether they are tourists or foreigners. A fun place, without prejudice, where diversity is respected and free of discrimination. Fine white sand, turquoise blue water and an average annual temperature of 27ºC.

Ready for the last night in Habana? Today it’s time to visit La Fábrica de Arte Cubano, an old oil factory converted into a creative laboratory where the most modern artistic avant-gardes coexist with the most incredible live entertainment. Dinner included at the Tierra Restaurant.
Day 5 / La Habana - Viñales
We leave Habana and head for the countryside of the Viñales Valley, an incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site. Famous for its tobacco plantations (the best in the world for some) and its lush natural landscapes dominated by mogotes. Here, we will have the opportunity to have lunch at one of its ecological farms, discover what life is like in rural Cuba, see the prehistoric mural, as well as one of the best sunsets on the island. Finally, we will stay in one of its most charming rural houses.
Day 6 / Viñales - Cienfuegos -Trinidad
We continue our journey to Cienfuegos, a charming colonial city nicknamed “The Pearl of the South”. We will visit with a local guide and continue our tour to Trinidad, a colonial-style UNESCO World Heritage city where old cars still share the cobbled streets with horses and buggies.
Day 7 / Trinidad
A tour at your own pace through the city of Trinidad with its strong Afro-Cuban roots. We recommend a visit to Café El Mago, a pioneer in the LGBTQ hospitality industry in Trinidad. And for those who still have energy left, you can finish the night at Disco Ayala, famous for being inside a cave.
Day 8 / Trinidad - Cayo Guillermo
We leave for our last destination, on the way we will visit the Valle de los Ingenios. Finally we will continue to Cayo Guillermo to stay at the Grand Muthu Rainbow Hotel 5*, the first LGBTQ resort in Cuba.
Days 9 to 11 / Cayo Guillermo
Cayo Guillermo has 5 kilometres of the best beaches in Cuba and is another incredible alternative to end this trip. Here you can let your imagination run wild: relax on the beach, do all kinds of water activities or go deep into the wilderness.
Day 12 / Cayo Guillermo - Santa Clara
After a few days of disconnection and total enjoyment on the beach, we leave for Santa Clara, where we will visit the Che Guevara Museum. Finally, you can visit El Mejunje, a drag bar considered the Cuban Stonewall where the gay rights movement began in the country.
Days 13 and 14 / Santa Clara - La Habana - Origin
Return to Habana to catch the flight home. The honeymoon comes to an end, but perhaps it is time to start preparing for the next getaway.
