people interested in Cuban history. We will enjoy our casual lodgings on the beach, swim in the bay during the evening and venture out to have great dinners in local restaurants in nearby villages.

Day 3: Today will begin with a fascinating tour of one of Havana’s cigar factories. Next we will travel to the outskirts of town where we will visit a primary school and drop off much-needed supplies to the staff and students. We then visit Hemingway’s ranch and afterwards have lunch in a restaurant near the port Papa used to moor his fishing boat. Back in Havana we will visit at least one of the city’s famous bars for a signature drink, have a nice dinner and then spend the rest of the evening in the apartment of a young Cuban couple who are rising stars on the Cuban music scene. This is a special evening and one not usually experienced by the casual visitor to Cuba.

Days 5-7: Three full days of guided fishing. The greater area adjoining the swamp and the Bay of Pigs is an immense mixture of flats, channels and back-country mangroves. Each day we drive through Zapata National Park to reach the small marina, and then join our guides in search of bonefish, resident tarpon and permit as well as jacks, snapper, barracuda and grouper. Depending upon interest, we may also take time for early morning bird-watching or enjoy short talks from a naturalist regarding the characteristics of Zapata National Park, which is the largest park in the Caribbean. Our last night here we will have a small party and pig roast with our guides and support staff.

Day 4: Get up early and transfer south towards the historic Bay of Pigs. We meet our fishing guides for a day of tarpon fishing on the Rio Hatiguanico and then continue on to our beachfront accommodations in the small town of Playa Larga. This is an old fishing village now frequented by the more adventurous travelers to Cuba. Bordering the famous Cienega Swamp, this area is a haven for anglers, bird-watchers, eco-tourists and

Day 8: Travel back to Havana for our flights home. For groups of five or more this trip is customizable to include more time in Cuba or visits to other parts of the country, including the tobacco growing area of Vinales and the historic town of Trinidad. Again, I would accompany your group for this extension and ensure that all goes smoothly.
