On Vamos Cuba Salsa Holidays you won’t be on your own even when traveling alone!
Exotic, Exhilarating, fascinating and educational and it should be explored and experienced!
If all you’ve ever been on a package holiday, you’ll be out of your comfort zone, but that’s what life is all about, having adventures and making memories; even if you are travelling alone.
That’s why we’ve created these special Solo Salsa Holidays package, so that you can safely see Havana, meet the people and learn something new at the same time.
When you arrive in Cuba one of our Vamos Cuba guides will be at the airport to meet you and you will taken to your accommodation and to meet your host. Staying with a Cuban family means you’re not on your own and you get to practice your Spanish!
Your Vamos Cuba host will give you all the advice and guidance you need to make the most of the time you have in Cuba. Your Vamos Cuba guide will explain how to get around Havana and access the internet, where to get good value, authentic Cuban food, understand the double currency and tell you where you can exchange your money.
On your Salsa Holiday you’ll have five 2 hour one to one, salsa sessions with an experienced dance partner and a professional teacher. You’ll even get the opportunity to show off your new salsa skills when we take you out to some of the best clubs in Havana.
Sightseeing & Nights Out
As well as your salsa classes, you’ll also get plenty of time to explore Havana. You can visit the ballet or wander along the world famous Malécon seafront.
You can even enjoy a daiquiri at the Ambos Mundo Hotel, which is where Ernest Hemingway lived, before he bought his own home, Finca La Vigia, which is now a museum. And, if you don’t like daiquiri’s you can always sip a mojito!
