Yes, it is, and to our knowledge, we’re the only US Bicycle Tour company that includes flights for their guests!

Roundtrip: from South Florida (Miami MIA or Fort Lauderdale FLL)

Yes, and it is a VERY SIMPLE process. When we check in for our outbound flight to Cuba you will hand the ticket agent your credit card and they will charge you $50 – $100 (depending on the airline) and hand you the Visa good for 30 days travel in Cuba.

Yes. We are all on the same flight.

Yes, all lodging in Casa Particulares (private home B&Bs) is pre-arranged and is included.

Yes, breakfast lunch and dinner are included. Alcoholic beverages are not included.

To keep the experience personal the average group size for published dates is from 8 to 12. We do run Private tours for groups of a minimum of 10 people.

A bike and helmet well suited for this tour are provided and included in the price. However, you are welcome to bring your own equipment as long as the bike is in good working order and suitable for the distances and conditions. (see itinerary)

Though not required: you can bring your own helmet, water bottles, saddle or clip-in pedals (with matching bike shoes) for your added comfort.

Yes, 100%! Cuba is by far the safest country we have ever visited. Also, the roads are in generally good condition and there are very few cars or trucks traveling on them.

There is no minimum age requirement. We do require that you are healthy, fit, and capable of riding 20+ miles on 5 of the 9 days. All participants must be at least 4’10” to offer compatibility with bikes and planned tour activities.

Other than the basic fitness levels mentioned above, Tour participants must be at least 4’10” (147 cm) tall. This is to assure maneuverability and safety on bikes provided for the tour.

Once a Cuba Tour begins rides are run rain or shine unless guides decide the weather conditions require adjusting the ride schedule. We begin each day with breakfast at our lodging and start our ride after that, typically by 8:00 AM.

We will stop several times and rarely pedal more that one hour at a stretch without stopping to regroup or for lunch, water, photos, and/or planned activities.

Mostly flat and rolling terrain with occasional climbs and descents. The roads are similar to tarmac county roads in the US with a bit more patches and rough surfaces in some places. We’ll encounter a couple of short stretches of very rideable dirt roads.

Compared to US or European traffic there are very few cars/trucks on the roads and they are super courteous to bikes and pedestrians making it feel safe and enjoyable for recreational bicycle riders.

The pace is moderate with planned stops for water, photos, lunch and activities. This is not a hard core road ride, we are typically out riding 3 – 4 hours each day but actually pedaling an average of 2 – 2.5 hours a day. Our guides make sure riders regroup often so no one feels like they’re left behind.

Also the tour is fully supported with a SAG wagon that follows the riders and carries luggage, water, medical supplies, extra bike parts and tools. If bikers are “out of gas” on a given ride they are always welcome to hop on the bus.

There will be various cultural and recreational activities arranged for our guests. Some of these include: Organic farm visit, arts & history outings, Salsa dance lesson & Salsa club outing, etc… There will also be additional optional activities such as guided horseback cave tour, scuba diving, snorkeling, wind-surfing, fishing and sailing.

We plan to be done riding by noon each day before the temperatures rise and to allow time to explore and enjoy our next destination.

No. Your guides will provide communication and translation whenever needed. You will most likely learn Spanish phrases and words along the way as part of exploring the culture of the country.

Always best to pack as light as possible but still be comfortable. In general casual wicking, quick-drying travel clothing is a good start. We will provide a Cuba Kit List of items required or recommended for a bike riding excursion in a tropical region.

As of very recently there are now 2 official currencies, the Cuban Peso (CUP) and the US dollar (USD). Most everyone wants USD now but some locals prefer CUP. If you want to get CUP we will exchange for you at the most favorable exchange rate available.

Yes! Per Cuba/U.S. Travel regulations each traveler is allowed 2 boxes of 25 cigars (purchased anywhere) and 2 bottles of rum (purchased at the airport) as well as gifts and souvenirs for friends and family.

Cuba’s tourist high season is typically during its drier season from December through mid-April. Temperatures average 69.8 °F in January. Prices are a little higher during the winter and spring and there are generally more crowds than other times during the year. However this is much less the case in the eastern part of the country where our tours take place.

Cuba has a very pleasant semi-subtropical climate, which is generally warm year-round and can be divided into two seasons. The wet season is between June and November and the dry season is between December and May when the temperature averages between 78 and 86 degrees.

Keep in mind that the weather in Cuba can get cool at night during December, January, and February so be sure to pack a sweatshirt, sweater, or light jacket for your trip.

Hurricane season is from June through early November, however, the likelihood of a hurricane is more likely to occur in August through October. Per NOAA Cuba experiences the lowest frequency of hurricanes and tropical storms than other parts of the Caribbean. Since 1960 there have only been 32 recorded hurricanes on the island.

It’s also worth noting that Cuba has highly developed disaster preparedness and civil defense networks for evacuations. We always suggest that you check the local Cuba weather forecast when packing for your trip.

A valid and current Passport from USA or any other country is required. We also recommend carrying a valid government issued ID (Drivers License, etc)

Per Cuba travel regulations each passenger must purchase their own Cuba Travel Visa when checking-in at the airline ticket counter for the outbound flight to Cuba. The cost on JetBlue has been USD $50 (which includes access to the highly regarded Cuban Health Care system) but can be up to $100 depending on the airlines. Our staff will provide visa and immigration assistance at the airports.

There are no specific immunizations required but travelers should use their judgement and confer with their health care providers prior to any international travel.

We strongly recommend purchasing a travel/accident policy. Travel insurance, much like any other type of insurance, covers an agreed-upon set of circumstances as set forth in the insurance contract. It is never a bad idea to protect a carefully-planned trip with coverage for delays, illness, lost luggage, and even natural disasters—the best travel insurance can soften the impact of unforeseen events. Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended and facilitates peace of mind before and during your trip to Cuba.

This article can help you research the industry and find the right travel insurance provider. Note: while we have used and recommended WorldNomads they do not provide coverage for Cuba at this time.

Yes, a 30% deposit is required to reserve a spot on a published tour date (or to reserve a custom date for your group). The balance is due 30 days prior to the departure date.

Because tours have limited availability your deposit guarantees a spot on the date you select. Cancellations by customers will result in the forfeit of deposits.

If the tour is canceled Yes, in case of extended extreme weather or unsafe conditions Cuba Bike Tours (CBT) reserves the right to cancel a tour date and refund all deposits and payments. Or if a customer prefers we will apply deposit/payment to another tour date (subject to availability).
