With a multitude of indigenous cultures, archaeological masterpieces, quaint villages and a rich history, Mexico is a perfect destination for today’s traveller. Cuba, with the vibrant cities of Havana, Trinidad and Santiago de Cuba and the quiet natural beauty of the West, rich in tobacco and coffee plantations, offers real variation for the visitor. Some of the Caribbean’s best beaches ensure a relaxing end to this Cuban adventure.
About Contours Travel
Over 35 years, Contours Travel has developed an unrivalled program in Latin America. Experience, expertise and outstanding local guides and representatives mean you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you are in the best of hands.
Contours Travel offers trips to South and Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean, including Cuba, Bermuda and the Bahamas, covering a variety of regions and experiences. Special itineraries throughout Latin America can be created to suit your requirements.
Director Ted Dziadkiewicz first explored the area as an overland bus driver in the mid-1970s, and he maintains a strong, hands-on focus on the business, travelling frequently to Latin America to explore new opportunities. All the friendly, experienced consultants are specialists in the region.
Contours Travel is committed to the ethos of responsible travel and supports a range of community-based initiatives in the countries we visit – from non-profit cafes and jungle eco-lodges to weaving co-operatives – which gives groups the rare chance to meet participants and share something of their lives and their deep, spiritual connection with their unique environment. Contours Travel believes that income from tourism can be a powerful incentive for conservation.
The small groups – usually about 16 members – travel in a less intrusive and more sensitive way that allows connection with people and places on an intimate scale. You will be immersed in the region, so that when you return from Latin America you will have a genuine understanding of the region and its people. Superficial travel is not for Contours. For the same reasons, hotels with real character and a strong sense of history are selected where possible, without sacrificing comfort.Contours Travel focuses on your comfort and safety, using the best local operators, first-class transport and outstanding English-speaking guides. They are there to help explain and interpret the sights for you, but are also available to provide suggestions on what to do and what to see on the free days woven into itineraries. These days give you the chance to explore independently if you wish, which is when you will make some of your most memorable discoveries. Contours Travel loves Latin America and would love to share it with you.
