All inclusive from Miami including R/T Air 
6 night/7 days in Miami/Havana

Centerline Adventures has partnered with FirstService Residential to bring an exciting experience in Havana, Cuba to their amazing communities! We have created an extraordinary and unique experience to this Island Nation where the culture runs deep and wide throughout the country.

We will visit businesses privately owned by the Cuban people who work hard to bring great hospitality to their guests, and with the smiles on their faces and the warmness in which they treat travelers, you immediately fall in love with their country.
Imagine yourself cruising through Havana in a vintage convertible with the wind whipping through your hair as salsa beats fill the air. How about learning how to Salsa with the sounds of Havana. We will meet some wonderful women who own their own businesses from the first ever wine bar in Cuba, to an artist who had a dream of owning a house built in 1916 and has turned it into a fabulous art gallery, and a woman who is highly regarded in the cigar industry around the world who has her own cigar lounge. Envision yourself sipping mojitos at a rooftop bar overlooking the sun-drenched Malecón, the city's vibrant tapestry unfolding below. We invite the residents in your community to join a select group of discerning travelers on a VIP, 7-day exploration of Cuba's hidden gems and legendary charm that starts in Miami in Little Havana! This curated itinerary, crafted for only 20 guests, promises an experience beyond compare. Follow along with the itinerary to feel the excitement of a week in Havana! Don't forget to save room in your suitcases for sets of Dominos and Cuban espresso cups and amazing artwork!

Havana, ooh na na!! Let's goooooo.....

Welcome to the Magic City! Also known as Miami, a city founded by women in 1896, and one of the most amazing places on Earth!

An award-winning tour, Charles and Dragonfly Expeditions will bring to life the success stories starting in 1960 to the present day!

This morning we will head out to MIA for our short flight to Havana! Once in the air, we will arrive at Jose Marti International Airport within an hour! After going through immigration, we will be transported by our private bus to Old Havana where we will have lunch at one of our fav places, Chacon 162! Our friend, Jose Hector, who owns this very popular place, has decorated in Route 66 decor including a Harley Davidson hanging over the bar!

Day 3
After a beautiful  breakfast on the Rooftop of Tribe Caribe Cayo Hueso Boutique Hotel, we will venture out to Finca Vigia, owned by Ernest Hemingway from 1939 to 1960. It’s a beautiful home overlooking the city of Havana from his own hilltop where he wrote two of his famous books – For Whom the Bell Tolls and Old Man and the Sea. His boat, the Pilar, is located at the “farm” and in great condition! From here we will go back to Old Havana and visit one of the historic museums, Belle Artes Museum...The contrast of artwork here based on the Cuban timeline will amaze you and our tour guide will explain the reasons for the transitions you view. We will also peek into the Museum of Automobiles and search for Hemingway's 1955 Chrysler Convertible he left to his friend when he departed Cuba for the last time in 1960.  Lunch today will be at La Vitrola, a cool restaurant that showcases Americana items new and old and always has live music! Now let’s return to Tribe Caribe and relax before our Fine Wine & Tapas Party at the new PlanH - an eccentric new wine bar in the heart of Old Havana within walking distance of the Capital! Enjoy the evening with a local Cuban band!

Day 4
This day is going to be great fun! We will visit the studio of Eduardo Cordova, an amazing percussionist who has developed a program to help children lacking in social skills or needing some extra attention because of a challenge in their own lives such as Autism. Centerline Adventures donates a portion of their proceeds to help Eduardo with his program. I guarantee that you will get up and move around!!! Now we will visit a very unique area called Fusterlandia where Jose Fuster, an artist who uses mosaic tiles, has created a world in a neighborhood of Havana where he has tiled his entire home! When his neighbors wanted to do the same, he helped them create this amazing area as colorful as any painting! You should definitely take a souvenir from his gallery! Lunch at the new MUSA Restaurant rounds out our morning.  Once back at Tribe Caribe, you will have time to relax and walk around the neighborhood. The Malecon, the most famous boulevard in the Caribbean is within walking distance. Feel comfortable talking to the people along the way. Americans are very well respected in this country. Now prepare for dinner at a beautiful venue called BestView because that's what it has! Looking out along the rooftops of the buildings in Havana, you will get a sense of beauty that will transform you to the days before the changes in the country. Tonight we will enjoy a great meal, live music, and listen for the nightly cannon shot at 9pm.  This tradition began in the late 17th century when cannon blasts were fired at 4:30 am and 9:00pm to signify the opening and closing of the gates into Havana. In 1898, the custom changed to firing once at 9:00pm, which still holds to this day and reminisces the closing of the gates of Havana at sunset.

Day 5
We all know that Cuba is known for cigars, but do we know who grows the tobacco? Today we will take a 2-hour ride to Pinar del Rio and visit a 5th generation tobacconist, Hirochi Robaina, grandson of Alejandro Robaina who began the legacy of Robaina tobacco and cigars. We will have a walking tour of the farm and then sit down for an authentic lunch of roasted pig!  Suffering devastation in 2022 from Hurricane Ian, Pinar del Rio has rebuilt this area to a greater level and welcomes us to visit this beautiful countryside.  Tonight, we will be picked up at the hotel with our own classic cars for a tour around Havana! These cars are the pride and joy of those that are lucky enough to own one! On our return to Tribe Caribe,  join us on the Rooftop for a great dinner and live music!

Day 6
Christopher Columbus landed in Cuba on October 27, 1492 and said it was "the most beautiful land human eyes have ever seen". We will spend today on one of those magnificient beaches he was talking about! Clear blue water of varying shades, white sandy beaches and absolutely no crowds! A private beach just a few feet from the private house we will have total access to including staff making our exquisite barbeque lunch!
Today is St. Patrick's Day and they say everyone is Irish on this day....except for the Scots! We will celebrate this holiday at CocoBlue y La Zorra Pelua, owned by Jeff Fuentes and his partner, Rita McNiff who happens to be IRISH! Rita is putting together a fabulous party this evening to close out our great week in Havana! Wear your GREEN and prepare for an amazing night! 
Day 7
Seems like the week flew by as we prepare for our flight back to the States! But before we do, remember the story Rita shared with us last night? This morning you will understand what she was telling us, and we think you will be greatly touched by this! Our last stop will be to visit our BFF, Vivian Melendez, who is highly regarded around the world for her knowledge of cigars. She will show us how to choose, cut, light, and smoke a cigar while paired with Cuban coffee or rum. She also has beautiful items you may want to take back to the US for friends and family! She has a great logo that you will appreciate once you experience her charming personality!!
