Why Cuba Baila

Cuba Baila Tours has been offering History, Music & Dance tours to Cuba since 2013. All tours are fully escorted and offer a bilingual tour host. We specialize in small tours so travellers can enjoy a more intimate experience in Cuba. Our booking office is based in Sydney and facilitates your bookings with us!

I have just spent 3 amazing weeks in Cuba on Yarima's December 2017 tour and had such a great experience I'm already planning to return! It was a very well organised tour with Yarima and the wonderful CubaBaila team (xxooxx!) ensuring everyone was looked after and having a great time. The casas were great and the families were very hospitable everywhere we stayed. The hardest part of the trip (apart from leaving) was having the energy to enjoy all the great venues and live music every night!!! The dance classes were brilliant. I did a week of ladies styling, which was unbelieveable for improving body movement with each of us receiving lots of personal attention.
