Christopher Columbus definitely had a thing for landing on eastern shores, and in 1492 he found himself looking out upon Cuba’s eastern coastline and emphatically declaring it “the most beautiful land human eyes have seen.”
We think Columbus had the right idea in this case. Unlike the westward bent of colonization in the good ‘ole U.S. of A, where it was the west that was wild, full of opportunity and untapped potential, it is Cuba’s eastern coast that captures that intoxicating essence. It’s more raw. More tempestuous. And much less crowded.
Join us on our new kayak and walking tour of Eastern Cuba and discover for yourself its unadulterated allure. Less tourist trappings and regulated infrastructure give each town an undampened authenticity. Closer to Caribbean islands such as Jamaica, the towns hold a much more palpable Caribbean paradise edge—one bedecked in palm-fringed beaches and unspoiled emerald wildernesses spotted with parrots. And of course, soused in rum.
