Photoshoot from Varadero to Havana

Varadero, Cuba

Experience hosted by Sergio

  1. 5.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Spanish

What you'll do

There are moments in a wondrous city where the camera just cannot capture its essence. I don't pretend to be just a photographer, but a partner; someone who shares topics on Cuban history and life. During this experience, we'll enjoy the journey into the little things to see and taste. Of course, photography will be involved. First, we'll meet at Varadero Center Park and take the road to Havana.
We'll take our first pictures on the road.
1st stop, Bacunayagua Brigde: Enjoy 103m view and a fresh Piña Colada.
2nd stop, San Carlos Morro fortress. In front of Havana bay.
3rd We'll take the road to the old square and enjoy the sights of Havana in the Cámara Oscura tower where a periscope will let us fly over Old Havana to see the people and common life.
4th Go to Chocolate House to enjoy a cup before continuing on to a perfume shop and a colonial store with an ambience that will enchant and take you back to another time.
5th We'll walk along Obispo Street, full of artisan shops, banks, pharmacies, and other old buildings. The pictures we'll take there will be simply amazing with different architectural styles, colors, and lighting.
6th We'll finish at Central Park, and get some lunch

Sergio was very friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed in Varadero for 4 days and Havana for 3 days, and Sergio took us to just about every important site in Havana, gave us a thorough history of each site, and took some amazing pictures. If you’re ever planning on traveling from Varadero to Havana and have a little extra time, there’s no reason not to book with Sergio rather than a standard taxi.

We did 5 experiences in Cuba and this was far and away the best. Sergio’s photos are astounding. And as a trained journalist, he is a wealth of information on what is going on today in Cuba. He offers several experiences - make sure you book at least one!!

Je ne regrette rien de cette formidable expérience! Sergio m'a d'abord amené chez lui prendre un café à Matanzas. Sa femme et sa fillette, se sont joint à nous pour le tour à la Havane. Nous avons développé une belle amitié! Ce sont des gens superbes! Sergio parle égalment francais et anglais. Il est très intéressant et cultivé. Il s'est rapidement adapté à ma personnalité. Les photos qu'il a prises sont magnifiques! Je suis satisfaite à 100%!

We are a recently married couple and went to Varadero for our first time. We met Sergio there for two experiences, the photoshoot from varadero to Havana, and the Blue Experience underwater photoshoot. He was kind enough to pick us up since we were the only couple he had these two days. Both experiences were one of the most amazing and unique experiences we had in our trip, so much so that we can't stop talking about it to everyone! He made us feel like family, completely comfortable, and allowed us to immerse ourselves in the daily lives of Cubans. He explained the history and current views with many details inclusive of struggles to successes. He even told a few local jokes and explained their origins, which started a friendship between us and enhanced our understanding of the Cuban culture. We recommend this experience to everyone and we can't wait to share some of the photos he took of us!

Sergio was very attentive with our family. We were traveling with small children and he was very patient and accommodating. He told us he has small children of his own. We got to visit all the sites we had pending in Havana and he told us about the history and customized the trip and took some great photos. He has an array of cameras that he uses to get the right lighting and photos. Would highly recommend him.
