“Close your eyes for a moment and imagine you are there. Waves crashing against a mildewed sea wall; a young couple cavorting in a dark, dilapidated alley; guitars and voices harmonizing over a syncopated drum rhythm; sunlight slanting across rotten peeling paintwork; a handsome youth in a guayabera shirt leaning against a Lada; the smell of diesel fumes and cheap after-shave; tourists with Hemingway beards; Che Guevara on a billboard, a banknote, a key-ring, a t-shirt…” Lonely Planet
Cuba is upon many 2017 bucket lists and on many websites as the number one most aspirational destination to visit this year.
Make like Hemingway and enjoy the Cuban waters on your own personal yacht with the Moorings. Although Hemingway may not have had the services of a gourmet chef, captain and a dedicated local tour guide to accompany him on his adventures, you will have this luxury when you enjoy nothing but a first class trip with the Moorings.
Do stop off at Hemingway’s two favourite Havana watering hotels, La Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio, more bustling than ever and try the signature mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and the daiquiri in the Floridita. His home at Finca Vigia, or “lookout farm that he shared with dozens of his beloved cats is also on the tour.
The Cuba all-inclusive holiday aboard a Moorings 5800 yacht pairs the best of Cuba sailing with a focus on the people and culture that make this destination so captivating. Most days, you’ll disembark the yacht to soak up the local entertainment and attractions with your personal guide, but you’ll also enjoy some smooth day and sunset sailing in Cuba’s warm climate and pristine cruising grounds. Here you can explore the many top-notch snorkelling spots and pick the perfect island oasis for a mid-day picnic lunch.
Between the lush tropical scenery and the incredibly rich culture native to the island, a Cuba charter vacation offers experiences such as strolling the streets of Old Havana, roaming around Hemingway House and discovering the history at Revolution Square. You’ll also witness a variety of lively local music and dance performances and have plenty of opportunities to tempt your taste buds with mojitos and tostones (twice fried plantain chips) or traditional Papas Rellenas (fried stuffed potatoes).
Your all-inclusive Cuba Crewed Yacht vacation includes all onshore activities and meals, as well as spacious accommodations aboard a premium air-conditioned 58-foot sail catamaran, professional captain and chef, gourmet meals, drinks and a full selection of water toys. Prices start at from $40,110 for up to ten people for seven nights.
