Full description
Begin your day with a journey back in time to the year 1939 when the famous novelist writer Ernest Hemingway first arrived in Cuba. Shortly after his arrival on this beautiful Caribbean Island, he bought the home, which is now a museum, Finca Villa Vigia in San Francisco de Paul. Visit this historic spot for an insight into Hemingway's daily life and you can admire some of his personal belongings.

Then drive along the northern coastline of Cuba until you reach the province of Mayabeque, which is located around 60 km east of Havana. Check in to the All-Inclusive Hotel Memories Jibacoa, where you will enjoy a day pass including drinks and food. Have a rest at the beach, do some snorkeling, or just enjoy the Caribbean Sun and the nice ambiance of this charming hotel. Later in the afternoon you will be picked up and head back to Havana.
