A look into the past, back to the time of slavery, but also a reminder of the time when sugar was the green gold and played a key role on the world markets. This led to a boom in the sugar industry from which many people profited quickly. After the visit, we continue along the foothills of the Sierra Escambray to the provincial capital of Sancti Spíritus, one of the first seven cities founded in Cuba, still retaining plenty of its original colonial flair. You will be accommodated in one of the beautiful, centrally located colonial-style hotels.
