What you'll do

We’ll leave the city behind after having some time to meet eachother at "Locos por Cuba" restaurant where we´ll shared a welcoming beverage. We will travel to the lush landscape of our good friend Idaniel´s farm, to meet his beautiful family. Once there we´ll get in deep touch with their daily endeavors, such as coffee and fruit growing, feeding farm animals, fishing in the river, and obtaining diferent living resourses directly from nature. Then we´ll go to explore the forest for two hours. The bats´ cave and the river are our two main goals. Guests must be in fair walking condition, trails are generally in good shape but it is more than a simple walk. The cave exploration requires some agility, but this part is optional. If you dont feel able to climb a small steep inclines to the cave you could remain by the river shore with one of us while the others go on. We´ll come back toguether to the river for a very freshing bath while enjoing coconut water and the excellent local rum. Afterall we’ll comeback home and sit down for a family-style lunch you´ll never forguet! Organic products and farm to table style. During the whole experience including transportation time we are going to share with you everything about the life in the Cuban countryside and the complexities of our reality. Bring tons of questions!! ;-)
