Travel Challenge: A Cuban adventure


Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. Today: a two-week tour of Cuba. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each includes 14 nights' accommodation and flights from London to Havana at the end of February.


Includes Virgin Atlantic flights from Gatwick on 21 or 28 Feb, transfers, accommodation and most meals on the "Cycling Cuba" group tour. "This relaxed cycle ride is a perfect chance to experience Cuba's culture, beaches, architecture and history," says Anna Faulder (0845 863 9601; exodus.co.uk).


Includes Iberia flights from Heathrow via Madrid on 23 Feb, transfers, B&B hotels, two nights' camping and six other meals on the "Cuba Libre" tour. "A highlight is a night under the stars in Topes de Collantes nature reserve, after an evening of traditional hospitality," says Jude Berry (0844 499 0901; explore.co.uk).


Includes Air Europa flights from Gatwick via Madrid on 21 Feb, an eight-day "Pearl of the Caribbean" coach tour with meals, then a week's all-inclusive at Meliá Peninsula in Varadero. "Combine captivating Havana with the countryside of Pinar del Río and the beach,'' says Tiffany Cope (020-7368 1200; trailfinders.com).
