- Discover why in Cuba, sustainable farming comes naturally
- Tour one of the country’s best organic farms on horseback
- Mediterranean meal in an award-winning restaurant
We absolutely love this foodie gift experience in Cuba. Why? Because this is one of the few places in the world where sustainable organic agriculture is not just a trend, but a long-standing ethos - in part down to necessity of course. You’ll make the short journey from Havana to the well-known Vista Hermosa farm, where the friendly owners will welcome you with a tour of their property. Either ride a horse, or board the tractor-trailer, to explore the more remote regions of the fields as you learn about the philosophy behind the farm and how they grow their various foods.
The family’s background is Mediterranean, but it has a true Cuban outlook - between them they are farmers, chefs, engineers, veterinarians and restaurateurs, and their farm is simply idyllic. Chickens, pigs, ducks and goats roam freely around, while ripe fruits hang from trees and the fields are full of crops. After this memorable tour you’ll head on to an award-winning restaurant in the neighbourhood of Vedado, where you’ll be served a delicious Mediterranean 3-course feast, naturally using 100% organic and fresh products from the soil and sea of Cuba. It’s the perfect Cuba sightseeing tour for foodies.
