Tour and cruise options for a quick Caribbean getaway.

I'D GROANED WHEN I FIRST READ
"10 am presentation by Havana's lead city
planner" on the itinerary. "My friends
aren't going to want to sit through a lecture
on their first morning!" I whined, but Lee
assured me it would be a crowd-pleaser. He
was right; our group peppered architect
Miguel Coyula with questions far beyond
the allotted time. Cuba is a little piece of
Europe in the Caribbean, he explained,
while describing how its mix of colonial,
baroque, and neoclassical styles came to
be. Weaving together politics, architecture,
and culture, Coyula openly discussed the
country's history, from its Spanish colonial
roots to the glitzy, Mafia-fueled casino and
hotel spree in the 1950s and the austerity
of its post-revolution socialist principles.
The majority of Havana's buildings were
constructed before 1959; on average, he

Orlando-based David Lee specializes in cultural tours of
Cuba and can work with your
travel advisor to customize a
trip based on your interests.
Our itinerary was all-inclusive
of accommodations, a dedicated guide and driver, tours
and activities, most meals,
and even a few drinks. Lee
and his team handle everything, including all required
documentation. Three-night
tours from $2,500.
Shop a farmers' market, visit
a food ration shop, and learn
the secrets of arroz con pollo
and ropa vieja at top paladares
on Access Culinary Trips'

five-day Havana itinerary.
Raise a glass to happy hour at
a private home, where you'll
mix cocktails with a retired
barman from El Floridita.
Departures: Multiple dates,
August 30 through November 8;
from $2,990.
Highlights of Rico Tours' fourday Havana itinerary include a
possible visit to a mechanic's
shop to see what goes into
keeping those iconic cars
running smoothly. Departures:
Any day through November 15;
from $2,278 per person.
Overnight in Havana on
Azamara's five-day round-

trip Miami sailing aboard the
690-passenger Journey. After
a day exploring the city, take
in a high-kicking show at the
famed Tropicana Cabaret.
This sailing also spends a day
in Key West, where you can
follow Hemingway's footsteps.
Departure: November 20;
from $1,074.
Cruise along the Malecón and
through stately Miramar in a
classic car with ShoreTrips'
half-day guided ride, which
goes into neighborhoods such
as Vedado to visit Cristóbal
Colón Cemetery. Departures:
Any day through 2018; from
$436 for two.
