Cuba Culinary Tour

Cuba Culinary Tour


Access Trips is pio­neer­ing culi­nary trav­el in Cuba by offer­ing inno­v­a­tive cook­ing and cock­tail class­es inside local Cuban kitchens and top restau­rants for the first time ever. One of the many high­lights of this tour is a Cuban cook­ing class, exclu­sive­ly for Access Trips guests, in one of Havana’s best pal­adares. On our Cuba tour you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with tal­ent­ed chefs as they share the secrets to cook­ing authen­tic Cuban cui­sine. The dish­es you cook will depend on what is avail­able that day, but might include mouth-water­ing Cuban foods like seafood pael­la or ropa vie­ja




Explore cul­ture through cui­sine on our exot­ic culi­nary tours and cook­ing vaca­tions. With our knowl­edge­able local guides, world-class chefs, and care­ful­ly designed itin­er­aries, we’ve cre­at­ed cook­ing and culi­nary vaca­tions that offer unpar­al­leled insid­er access to the local cul­ture.

So whether you are a food­ie look­ing for the best meals, a cul­ture buff who savors serendip­i­tous expe­ri­ences, or a cook­ing enthu­si­ast who wants to learn to pre­pare local foods, Access Trips culi­nary tours are for you

Please note that Cuba is an adven­tur­ous des­ti­na­tion where things do not always go as planned – in fact they often do not go as planned. We urge you to bring a flex­i­ble atti­tude and a sense of humor on your Cuba tour. The above itin­er­ary reflects our best plan­ning, but there may be times when we have to sub­sti­tute dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties and accom­mo­da­tions. That is la aven­tu­ra Cubana – the Cuban adven­ture!


Our first small group tour, cre­ative trav­el was a great choice. BERNAL was my kind of tour guide, he took us to some very good out of the way pal­adars where we had excel­lent meals. We went over New Years and had the best time with the oth­er peo­ple in our group. We do a lot of trav­el­ing and this was one of our best trips ever. Thanks car­los bernal
