When travelling through any country, there are many ways to take in the sights and sounds. Bus tours, riding the subway, hailing a cab and renting a bike will all help you to get to know a place and learn the local geography. But what about driving a 4×4 — a vehicle that’s perfect for venturing off paved roads — through a picturesque valley in Cuba? Now that’s an activity you don’t get to try on just any vacation.
There’s no better way to experience Cuba like a true local than to take in the jaw-dropping landscape of the Yumuri Valley on Sunwing Experiences’ Jeep Safari Yumuri tour. Also known as the ‘Valley of the Royal Palm Trees,’ the Yumuri Valley is home to some of the most beautiful flora and fauna in Cuba. Plus, a mountain ridge measuring almost 500-feet high provides a stunning backdrop as drivers make their way through the valley. With no shortage of photo opportunities, touring the gorgeous landscape while driving over rough terrain in a Jeep 4×4 will create a thrilling memory you won’t soon forget.
Come rain or shine, guests will be in for a bumpy, muddy and, therefore, exhilarating ride. Not only can travellers test the limits of the vehicle on rough terrain, but they can also experience some of the most scenic views the Yumuri Valley has to offer that regular cars and trucks can’t access.
Relaxing by the pool or swimming in the ocean is a great way to pass the time, but when you’re ready to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, off-roading in the Yumuri Valley is one of the best adventures around.
