Tours & Excursions
A wide variety of day-trips and excursions is proposed to travelers staying in the Jibacoa resort (see list of the left). Being located approximately half-way between Varadero and Havana, Jibacoa is a good location to be able to discover both of these cities, and also other Cuban regions. The most popular are the Havana tours because the prices are good compared to other Cuban beach destinations located much further away from the capital city.
Whether you're looking for cultural experiences, contact with nature, thrilling adventures, nautical activities, contact with the locals, or historical sites; you will certainly find the perfect escapade and leave the beach behind for a few hours to discover beautiful sites, do fun-fill activities, and learn about the real Cuba and its people.
