Cuba and Costa Rica: Colonial charm and natural splendour (3 Weeks) - Mundana

Day 1-5 Havana
No Image

Ageing gracefully like a dowager duchess down on her luck, Havana’s charm lies in its crumbling architecture, creaking Fifties automobiles and hit and miss plumbing. But with a welcome as warm as the sun that fills the squares and a soundtrack of son, salsa and rumba, this city is an instant hit with everyone who visits.

Day 6-9 Trinidad
No Image

Visit Cuba’s Trinidad and travel back in time to a place where horses still gallop along cobbled streets, their riders off to work sugar cane fields that surround this languid town and led to its founding. Nothing much happens here, but that’s its charm. A living, working town that can feels more like an open air museum, this is a place to people watch and wander.

Day 10-13 San Jose
No Image

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and protected National Parks, the Costa Rican capital can be quite a culture shock if you’ve just arrived from the countryside. Linger a while, however, and this sprawling city grows on you. Check out the Spanish colonial architecture of the National Theatre and the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum before you leave.

Day 14-17 Arenal Volcano National Park
No Image

Chill out on the slopes of one of Costa Rica’s most active but most predictable volcanoes. Lava bombs and pyroclastic ejections are a common sight, but the geothermal heat from this mountain also supplies the nearby Hot Springs. Other activities to try include zip lining, kayaking, white water rafting and fishing.
