You’ll be Havana good time in no time in colourful Cuba.
Photographers love to travel to Cuba for the multihued buildings, car-aficionados are in it for the clapped out ‘yank tanks’ trawling the streets and rum-fiends love the strong Cuba Libres on offer.
Whatever your reason for travelling to Cuba, you’ll find another one as soon as you’re there – Cuba excels at that many things.
While on a Geckos tour of Cuba (with a small crew of 18-29 year olds) you’ll drink and dance in Havana’s bars, tour tobacco plantations in Vinales, be ensconced in all things ‘El Che’ in Santa Clara and pretend you’re not lost in Trinidad's tangle of cobbled streets.
Cuba equals much more than the sum of its parts; beyond the mojitos, murals, cigars and cars, this is a proud, passionate place that is in a state of transition.
What people say
Do not expect western standards, remember that their island living and the complex economy has limited resources. Therefore, locals and businesses have to make do with what they have.
What people say
My most recent Gecko's Adventure was to Cuba, and before that I discovered India and Nepal. Both Gecko's experiences changed the way I viewed my world. I saw amazing things, met some unforgettable people and was guided through a truly unforgettable adventure

Vintage Cuba, September 2016
This trip was excellent. It's a shame Geckos have changed their age range downward again as it proposes to exclude people like me enjoying these amazing adventures. I had an absolutely awesome time - it's disappointing there will be no more Gecko trips for me :(

Vintage Cuba, August 2016
Cuba is the most intriguing country I have ever been to. This trip is inexpensive for the ground it covers, and the place itself is incredibly affordable. The people, music, food and culture will fill your heart til it bursts. Get yourself here before it all changes!
