    CYCLING CUBA

    My first ever cycling trip/group holiday/time in Cuba.  A great way to get off the beaten track (quite lierally on occasions) and see a little of the real Cuba.  The cycling was generally good, although the strong headwinds during the early part of the trip (which coincided with long, featureless straights) was hard-going and not hugely inspiring.........or maybe that was just me.  If you're thinking about doing it, I'd say don't think for too long.....Cuba is going to change and seeing it now was a special thing.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Hard to say - the countryside on the last few days was wonderful, distinct from the early part of the trip and very interesting.......the last few miles just flew by.  Old Havana, Trinidad and Santiago are beautiful..........but if it's just one, then the hotel with the waterfall up in the mountains was it.  And the pianist in the 'Taj Mahal'.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Personable, knowledgable and laid back - I have no complaints, but one or 2 in the the party would have preferred more timely delivery on admin issues.....sorting hotels for those staying on in Havana etc.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Oh yes!  The food isn't as bad as everbody makes out - the choices are invariably chicken, fish or pork with salad, and rice and beans.  Pit stops and lunchtimes are generally fruit and sandwiches respectively.  TOP TIP - take tabasco sauce or something spicy to give the food a bit more interesting.  TOP TIP 2 -  for some reason bath plugs are non-existent........a good addition to your wash bag.  TOP TIP 3 - ATMs and cash changing facilities are sporadic from Day 2 onwards - change money whenever you have the opportunity.  TOP TIP 4 - the cigars are much the same price at Duty Free as they are in the towns.....buy at the hotel where you stay for 2 nights (you also get a cigar-makling demo and the odd-freeby).  Finally, one of our party had a nasty crash going downhill on a potholed road - 2 TOP TIPS - wear your helmet (I can't believe it wasn't mandatory despite the travel notes) and ask your guide what to do in the event of an accident - a passing taxi very helpfully took our (semi-conscious) rider to hospital, but in all the confusion, it was hard to know whether to wait for the safety bus or get our friend some medical help.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Hotels varied between very good and "OK, well we're only here for a night".  All were clean, most had hot water.  The people are very friendly and I never felt remotely threatened.  Could the trip be improved?  Yep - the roads on days 3/4/5 are straight, the countryside featureless and if you have headwinds they quickly become a bit demoralising.......The Bay of Pigs is hyped and could be by-passed.....maybe a re-jig in the routing?  That said, these are minor points to note - the rest of the trip was really very good indeed and the people on it were excellent company.........even the Australians!!!!

    CYCLING CUBA

    Fantastic - undoubtedly the best way to see Cuba. You experience the sights, sounds and smells so much more on a bike than you do through a bus window.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Difficult to narrow it down... it's a close thing between the scenery (esp. in the mountains), the friendly locals and the fact I've come back from a holiday fitter than I was before I went! But overall I'd say it's the friendly Cubans. There are loads of locals on bikes that you find yourself talking to as you're pedalling along. Not to mention the smiles, waves and greetings you get all the time from passers-by. One of the highlights for me was cycling past a village school - all the children there had noticed a few cyclists going past and had lined-up along the roadside to wave and cheer those that followed.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent. Our leader was Liber - if you're lucky enough to find him greeting you at Havana Airport arrivals, you're in for a great trip.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You hear it all the time but it is true: go to Cuba now before it's 'too late'.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Don't be worried by the cycling - for the most part, the terrain is not difficult. There are a handful of climbs on 2 of the days that are steep enough to be challenging (for someone of average fitness) but short enough not to be painful. That came as a relief to me as I'd managed to put off doing proper preparation for the trip for the whole 6 months prior to departure...!

    CYCLING CUBA

    a very well organised and comprehensive trip

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    cycling on the last stage to the hotel dancing in Trinidad on New Years  Day

    What did you think of your group leader?

    generally excellent leadership

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    take biros and clothes to donate to those rural cubans who are poor take your own saddle that you have checked and found comfortable - pedal clips might be useful

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    it would have been preferable if the logistics had allowed the leader to cycle with the group, rather than travelling in the coach/van most of the time. This is, I understand, because of any emergency he needs to be on hand.

    Don't hesitate!

    This was my first time in a trip like this, and my first time with Exodus. My only problem now is deciding what trip to do next!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Meeting like-minded travellers, and cycling through beautiful scenery, through towns and villages, and getting a real taste of how locals live.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Freddie was excellent. His knowledge was second to none, and his English vocabulary was better than some native English speakers! Others on the trip, who've been on other similar holidays noted that Freddie's commitment surpassed the average, so while I can only say I was delighted, I wanted to ensure he got the credit he deserves in comparison with his peers.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The trip is listed as 'moderate': I'd consider this accurate for regular cyclists. I exercise most days, though rarely cycle, and I personally would consider it as somewhere between 'moderate' and 'challenging'. That said, I complete the full 623km and only struggled on the mountains (day 9) where I had to walk a little towards the top. There's always the back-up bus though, so just do what you can do, or as much as you want to do.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I think even the frequent cyclists were unused to cycling the distances daily, so don't be surprised if you don't have the energy to get up early, cycle, then party at night. But there's always time for a pina colada or two...

    CYCLING CUBA

    Fantastic holiday - great group of people, enjoyed the cycling and loved Cuba hugely!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I didn't think there was one moment in particular...in many ways the whole trip was inspirational and never having done a cycling holiday before I can really recommend it as a fantastic way to see a country.  It was great to see the countryside... from very lush valleys to sugar cane fields, to swampy countryside to mountains.  The towns we visited were great too and I loved the music and vibrancy of many of the places we stayed.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Great - very friendly and helpful.    The whole team (Jose, Jose-Luis and Alexis) worked hard to make things run smoothly and made things very easy for us...all we had to do was cycle, eat and drink mojitos really!  (And tread on their toes when trying to learn to salsa!)  :-)

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you're not a cyclist (I'm not) then I think it helped to have done a wee bit of training beforehand.  Take your own saddle if you can - it made a real difference to me!!  I worried a bit beforehand that everyone else would be 'Tour de France standard'.  In actual fact the cycling was pretty OK really...one tough day in the mountains and I found the heat affected me on one day...but apart from that it was fine and very do-able.   Make sure you take enough cash with you (I didn't!) and although it is possible to use cash machines and go to banks it's not as easy to do that as back home.   I found the food on the trip to be more than OK and very nice in some places...but if you're a veggie then expect to eat rather a lot of cheese and eggs...    Just enjoy it!  I feel very lucky to have been able to go to Cuba now...it feels as if it is a country that is changing and maybe things will be very different in a few years.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    GO!!  You'll love it!  Fantastic country, great music, dancing and mojitos and the cycling is fun too!  :-)

    Jim & Jenny from New Zealand

    Really enjoyed the trip and had a fabulous group which added to a memorable time. Coming from a southern hemisphere winter with restricted training time in the last 2 weeks prior to departure and not being a proficient cyclist, we struggled with the heat. Personally I feel the fitness rating level of 3, (which we felt comfortable with upon reading it) should be raised to accommodate the heat factor. The support from the group was awesome when we were unable to cope with the cycling at some stages and became the bus driver's favourite hitchhiker. Having that support knowing that you could be picked up at any stage was of tremendous value.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The camaraderie of the group we traveled with made every moment one to remember. We went to see the country and experience the culture and by cycling we certainly did that by getting into some of the more remote areas.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jose was very good, He made sure everyone was aware of the day's plans, any potential hazards or problems. We learnt about daily life in Cuba, past and present. He was also very quick to resolve a couple of medical situations that arose. Praise must also go to the support staff, who probably don't get the same recognition as the group leader. With out them he would not be able to do his job. On our trip both Jerado (passenger driver) and Ariel (cycle bus driver) contributed in a major way. Ariel also taught us all to dance. We would like to see that the support staff get the opportunity for appraisal alongside the group leader

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Consider the heat factor in your preparation. There will be some very proficient cyclists but don't be deterred if you feel you aren't an experienced cyclist as the support is always there. Be aware that although the accommodation is satisfactory you will encounter less than satisfactory sanitary conditions, so take appropriate action. Go with an open mind and you will love it.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Several on our trip met with digestive issues. We feel many of these arose from at time very unpleasant unsanitary toilet stops, particularly for women. This in some cases prevented some people from cycling and spending time on the bus with 2 people needing medical attention. The trip notes need to be upgraded more frequently as we found the costs were greater than advised. Also the fitness factor need to be upgraded to 4 or 5 to take into account the heat factor particularly in July.

    Cycling Cuba

    An excellent cycling trip with plenty to challenge the keen cyclist. We saw hugely varied aspects of Cuban life, from farming to city and town life. The group were great fun and we all got on very well. The tour guide was excellent and looked after us from start to finish.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The stop over in the eco lodge in the Sierra Maestra. This was peaceful and tropical and a lovely opportunity to relax in a lovely garden with the birds singing. It would have been very easy to stay another day.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Freddie was absolutely brilliant. He was an expert cyclist and kept us safe and on schedule. He was supportive of cyclists at all levels. He has a great knowledge and understanding of his county's history and current issues. I appreciated his organisation of places to eat at night, but he was always keen to say that he was happy for people to do their own thing. Can't fault him.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This is a full on trip, and you don't have a lot of time at each stop so you need to be organised and to think ahead about your kit, your money and some extra munchies to keep you going. You need to be strict with your hand hygiene and be careful what you choose to eat. Stomach bugs are an issue.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This trip was a great experience and a great introduction to Cuba and it's culture. I would like to return and explore the cultural side of things at a leisurely pace in the future, particularly because I now know what's there and especially the music.

    CYCLING CUBA

    A fantastic experience to be savoured - go quickly before this whole way of life changes

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    the scenery, the culture, the music all combining to form one unforgettable experience. Never being bored - once!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    what he didn't know about history of Cuba  wasn't worth knowing and so evidently proud of its achievements from the days of slavery.  Now, he was inspirational and ..............had a great sense of humour which we exploited to the full.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Ignore anything you are sent about the people needing T shirts and pencils/crayons - really only the bottom SE of the country appreciates it. Elsewhere you're just rebuffed - but politely  Take lots of Immodium - think almost everyone went down with a tummy bug so dose yourself up and keep going.  Natural mosi repellent far more effective than Deet over here - I took 95% Deet and was badly bitten, but they didn't like the lemon eucalyptus stuff at all (and it smells so much nicer!)

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Only small gripe is: too much coach and not enough cycling. Would have preferred to have done more cycling per day as the terrain was not really too tough. Thought the days away from the bike were a little bit of a waste, but that's pure personal preference.

    Cycling Cuba - the holiday of a lifetime!

    16 day cycling holiday in Cuba, covering most of the island. Cycling between 35-80k for 10 days, with back-up support and bus transfers. Staying in huge variety of accommodation, from 5 star luxury hotels, to Russian utilitarian hotels, to beautiful colonial hotels, and a couple of casas, giving insight into how the locals live.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Swimming in the sea at the Bay of Pigs, when a pelican flew very low just past me and some of the lovely long descents, with amazing views. (John) Completing all the cycling without going in the bus, and being the first to finish the final leg! (Polly)

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Brilliant! Laz was exceptional, he got on very well with all our group, very mixed age and ability; he was very knowledgeable about Cuba's history and gave us good advice about places to see and what to eat and drink, and he had a great sense of humour. We felt very well looked after and could not have had a better group leader.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    As long as you can cycle the distance, including some very steep hills, age doesn't matter, the oldest in our group was 76 and was always in the front. But don't worry,even if you can't manage it the bus is always following you, so you can choose to ride in the bus if you want to. A gel saddle cover would be a good idea. and lightweight cycling tops and shorts that cover you to avoid sunburn - also high factor sun cream. Lastly, do take Imodium, however careful you are you are bound to get Cuban tummy!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This was the holiday of a lifetime for us, we've never done anything like it before and are very glad to have experienced such a fascinating country, with a completely different lifestyle. We also met some very interesting people cycling with us and would highly recommend this trip to any keen cyclists.

    CYCLING CUBA

    Well organised trip that was delivered by an excellent local team. Weather was good to us - not too hot most days and the only rain was whilst we were in the coach. Couple of rather dull flat days into a head wind but otherwise the route was varied - passing though small towns and countryside. Great way of seeing a lot of different aspects of Cuba in a short time.  

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling into the mountains, Trinidad, & watching the local transport system. Friendly locals - one of which called me Lance Armstrong as I went past!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Miguel, Alexi and Jose Luis were a great team and worked hard to ensure the trip went smoothly.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The snorkling from Trinidad is good - but if you are not into snorkling consider having the day in Trinidad. The boat trip is 2 hours each way for 2 hours on the island.  Bring padded shorts and good cycling gloves. Don't expect to be able to buy much - shops as we know them don't really exist!  

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Can't think of a better way of seeing a lot of Cuba in a short time. Cuba is changing - go sooner than later.

    Cycling Cuba

    This was a trip that we had wanted to do for some time, and we were certainly not disappointed. The mix of cycling, sightseeing, swimming, great fellow travellers, a brilliant guide and one or two mojitos made for an amazing experience

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It is hard to pick just one moment, the amazing views, the inspirational cheers of 'hola' from the locals whilst cycling through the towns and villages, swimming in the Caribbean, I could go on....oh yes, and the famous Bee Hummingbird!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Freddy was an inspiration in himself. He was a font of all knowledge, from the terrain to the wildlife to the revolutionary history of the amazing island. He was quick to pick up on the needs of the groups, both in sickness and in health, and adapt the itinerary accordingly.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you have small change for loos, take hand gel and use it often. I found a gel saddle cover a help but the new Trek bikes were pretty good. We did not spend as much money as we had thought we would and less than the trek notes suggested. Put your camera in a 100% waterproof bag or leave it on the bus when it rains.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Thank you for the suprise birthday cake, a nice touch and much appreciated. Go for it, you'll have a great time!

    Cycle Cuba

    An outstanding trip that allows you to see at first hand all aspects of Cuban life and history, both in the towns and cities as well as in the villages and countryside.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The pride of the Cuban people.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our group leader José, was a credit to Exodus, He effortlessly created a cohesive and inclusive group and was always prepared to listen to and accommodate, wherever possible, the desires and wishes of individuals as well as the group. Especially bearing in mind the wide age range and cycling experience and abilities within the group. A very knowledgeable guide and leader with a wicked sense of humour.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for some very long straight roads, but the rewards are great.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It would have been good to have had a the chance to see and experience the north western areas of Cuba.

    CYCLING CUBA

    Our group was great, we all got on and had a lot of fun! The  rides were a good mix of challenging and easy, some of them were boring mainly on the flat with head winds but the mountains section was great.The Cuban people were great, very friendly and welcoming.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The ride through the mountains was fantastic, such a sense of acheivment over such a gruelling course.  The hotel was great, the best of the trip.  The waterfall was the best feature and it was just a fantastic day.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Liber was great, he was very knowledgable and gave us lots of information on the historyof Cuba not only in the places we visited but as much of Cuba as he could.   He was very friendly and aproachable and always happy to chat with us and take us places that may be of interest. It was not just the tour leader that made it the support drivers and mechanic all made the trip unforgettable.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Train up for a few weeks, get used to being in the sadle for at least a couple of hours.  Take baby wipes, the facilities are of mixed quiality lets say. Padded shorts are a must and a gel saddle was useful for lots of people. The food is the same everywhere but quite nice, 

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Mohitos are fantastic...  Drink them everywhere and enjoy! The last meal we had was in a speciality fish restaurant, did not have a vegetarian option and more frighteningly had no fish. Only in Cuba could this happen. Expect things just to be unavailable.

    Cycling Cuba/Trip code MAH/ 10th-24th Dec 2015.

    Our family very much enjoyed their Cuban holiday. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, (varied standards). Many beautiful cities and artitecture features to admire. Bikes were well maintained. Food and mojito's plentiful.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Day 4 of the ride was a highlight. We stopped at Caleta Buena, swam in the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean and viewed tropical fish in the sea pool there. Also enjoyed the night life in Trinidad. Our children loved the "Rave Cave'.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Freddy our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. He knew all the twists, turns and hills on our route and was able to give practical advice tackling them. He was approachable and helpful,(we started our tour without our luggage,which wasn't easy). Freddy and the staff at Exodus helped to chase it up and deliver it to us.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take sun screen and a sink plug. Keep your loose change for toilet stops. At cycle stops we were provided with local fresh fruit, which was good. Would have liked more substantial ride snacks for energy,(trip notes did advise to bring your own). We spent more money on evening meals than we thought would. Most nights CUC 15 plus per person, per meal.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Told we were not entitled to the advertised free airport transfer, as we did not arrive/depart on the designated trip days, which was both disappointing and costly.

    CYCLING CUBA

    Great place, great group, great guide, great fun

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The most memorable moment was cycling during a warm rain storm, trying to dodge the squillions of migrating crabs on our way to Trinidad.  It was just great. Trindad was so pretty.  Arriving at the hotel in the mountains took my breath away.  Santiago was such fun.  So many great moments to share but I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone who decides to go.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Freddie was just a star.  He made the holiday so brilliant.  organised everything, even restaurants and entertainment in the evenings.  He was great.  Hose-Louis, Alexis and Titi were also all brilliant such great company and support.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for cycling in the heat if travelling in March/April but you do get used to it after a day or twoTake toilet roll or tissues with you as it's scarce in some placesGo to Casa de la trova in Santiago if you like dancingGet your guide to arrange (in advance) Salsa tuition in Trinidad.  You will enjoy the clubs so much more

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Holguin could be skipped to be honest and the last few rides (now you're feeling really fit) could have been a bit longer but other than that it was totally brilliant.  The group was great though which helped make it so special.  I met some really lovely, hilarious people and we all agreed that apart from the odd dodgy hotel (which couldn't really be helped because of location) you coudn't fault exodus at all.  Totally brill and so worth it.  I'm thinking about Vietnam now.

    Cuba Cycling Tour

    Cycling is a superb way to experience Cuba and to get a feel for the country and the way the Cuban people live. As usual, Exodus's organisation is second to none and their ability to respond to unforeseen circumstances or problems is excellent, allowing us to get on with enjoying the holiday.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The Cuban people are an inspiration in their willingness to share their lives, history and customs with complete strangers and to do so with good grace and humour. They have so little and yet share so much.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jose was excellent. Extremely knowledgable and able to share this knowledge in an insightful and often amusing manner. He kept us safe and on track, accommodating the differences and desires that a diverse group of people inevitably brings.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be openminded and go with the flow.....have few expectations especially about the toilets and food and you will be delighted rather than disappointed

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    An excellent holiday to be highly recommended

    CYCLING CUBA

    A really fantastic two weeks in Cuba.  The cycling was brilliant too - after a couple of days to get more adjusted to the heat!  Towards the end of the trip, we were really motoring - and enjoying some woderful scenery.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Ceinfuegos, Trinidad and Santiago were wonderful - as were the rides through the interior and up into the mountains.  In fact, apart from the truly awful Hotel Pernik (where many of us had food poisoning!), can't think of anyting bad to say about the trip.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jose was absolutely brilliant - full of fun and information and so enthusiastic about his country and its history and culture.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    We wish we had put in a bit more practice and training days beforehand, as the first day or two we found quite hard cycling, especially in the heat (32 Celsius and above!).  Woul advise going in January/February, wehn it may be slightly cooler, rather than March.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The Cuba trip has really got us up for it - and now we want to cycle Vietnam next!

    CYCLING CUBA

    Thoroughly enjoyable - a really memorable experience. We developed a great affection for Cuba and the Cuban people. A unique country.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There were many. The day into the Sierra Maestre mountains and the last two days' cycling were all good. The street music in Trinidad was magic.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Liber was outstanding. Excellent on the history; great sense of humour; good organisation; very helpful; popular all round.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    My only observation is that Cuba faces problems over the very high rewards, relatively speaking, available to people working in the tourist industry by comparison with what just about anybody else can aspire to earn in Cuba. To that extent the Exodus suggestions as to what were the levels of tips which we should give, seemed very high. Liber was excellent but a recommended tip of c. 30 CUCs from each of 16 people produces a sum which is about 15-20 times a doctor's monthly salary. (We did, in effect, contribute 50 CUCs per person for three people, the majority, appropriately, going to the overall leader). I have no problem with this sum, as such, but have concerns that tourism is introducing its own inequalities and, possibly tensions,  to Cuban society.

    Charles Marwood

    Undoubtably the best way to see Cuba in two weeks. On a bike with excellent guides, like minded group members head from plain to mountain range, village to city and cathedral to desert island.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Drinking fresh piña coladas, classic car rides in Havana, cycling into the Sierra maestria mountain range and leaving the town of Gibara of a perfect Caribbean morning.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Ichael was fantastic, funny, well organised and knowledgable.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Approach this trip with an open mind, don't expect 5 star all the way, you're in Cuba. Embrace the dodgy busker, eclectic dining and Cuban culture. Take water bottles and sunscreen, toilet paper and insect repellent. It's not worth taking your own bike, the local bikes are fine for this trip, worth taking your own pedels and saddle if you have your own.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Would be nice to extend your trip before or after the cycle tour and do your own thing for a few days. Unfortunately we didn't have the time :-(

  • 8

    CYCLING CUBA

    The holiday was a success because of both the people in the group, and  the Cuban people themselves. Very relaxed and approachable, with their infectious music and dancing, the trip became much more than a cycle tour. The cycling was relatively easy except for one day, and well serviced by the team. Cycling, swimming, dancing - not as exhausting as it sounds, but certainly memorable. 

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I'm sure that if Shangri-la was not a mythical place then its location would be the Villa el Salton in the Sierra Maestra. Swimming in a clear freshwater pool beneath a beautiful waterfall has to be the stuff of dreams or Hollywood backdrops! I don't think anyone would have objected to a longer stay!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jose was incredible. Not once did he lose his cool, although I think he would have been justified in doing so a couple of times.  He even gave us Salsa lessons - at no extra charge! A worthy, enthusiastic, confident and knowledgeable leader.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take your own bike if you can! Be prepared for long bus transfers, a necessary feature when covering the whole island.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Most of the group opted out of the catamaran trip. We went down to the harbour, but the operators were very inefficient and the catamaran seemed overcrowded. Those that did go on the trip seemed less than impressed.
