Cuban “Paladares”: an Explosion of Taste Cuban paladares are privately owned restaurants, most of them created in Cuban homes. Run as family businesses, they provide not only authentic Cuban and international dishes, but also the experience of being in a homely environment. As it is one of the few serious business that Cubans can own, during the past few years there has been an explosion of creativity in these paladares. Cuban inventiveness has proven fruitful in these homely places that welcome you with great food, drinks and tasting experiences. Our itineraries include the hottest paladares in town, as well as the opportunity to interact with their chefs and owners. Do not miss this opportunity to know the authentic Cuban culinary culture!

Experience Cuba



Our two week trip was a great experience. The staff was impeccable with every aspect of the journey, from arrival in Miami for the charter flight to the amazing restaurants, walking tours and music excursions. To coordinate over 150 travelers for a premium tour would have been impossible without their wealth of knowledge and attention to detail. For myself, the band, and many of our guests, the trip was one of the best experiences of our lives!
