Cuba Bicycle Tours

The largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba is a fascinating country. With relatively little traffic, friendly and curious locals, an eternal summer, endless unspoiled coastline and a fascinating blend of cultures, it’s an ideal place to explore by bicycle.

MacQueen’s Island Tours/WoWCuba has specialized in delivering high quality supported cycle tours to Cuba since 1994. Insight and authenticity is ensured by our use of local guides on all group cycle tours. To ensure that services are delivered to the high standards our clients expect, on or behind the scenes, a member of the WoWCuba team is there to ensure your holiday is everything you imagined it to be. Our group cycling activities are mainly focused in the mornings, leaving many afternoons free for independent exploration, relaxation, hiking, swimming, reading, and more.

From November to March in Cuba’s winter/dry season, we offer various one-week group bicycle tours and the ever-popular annual Vuelta Cuba, a 2-week trip from Santiago to Havana. In 2016-17 we are offering several private tour dates centered around our Western and Central Cuba tour itineraries, including interesting private accommodation variations. We have resident company representatives who’ll introduce you to their favorite local spots, a large fleet of undisputedly the best rental bicycles available in Cuba individually selected for their components, comfort and suitability to the terrain, and all the experience, expertise and accessories to ensure an unforgettable cycle vacation in Cuba. In the summer/rainy season we suspend our group cycling programs as summer temperatures are usually not the most favorable for cycling in this destination, in addition to the higher probability of rain which can result in slick road conditions with the high # of diesel vehicles on the roads in Cuba. For those interested in exploring Cuba’s roads on 2 wheels in the summer, we highly recommend the independent bicycle rental services available at CicloCuba in Old Havana.

Allow us to show you the natural beauty of Cuba, and you’ll discover that the real warmth is found in the hearts of the people.

What Clients Are Saying About WoWCuba Bicycle Tours


I enthusiastically recommend WowCuba, and would be glad to be a personal reference. The tour was very well planned and supported, the guides were extremely competent and fun to be with, meals and accommodations were very good to excellent, and this was a great mix of group activity, individual time, biking in beautiful countryside while learning about and appreciating Cuba, in all its complexity and possibilities. The trip is very suitable for an individual, a couple or a family (we were a family of 4 with 2 grown kids, different biking levels, different interests, and all of us really had a great time). Definitely recommend WowCuba and hope to come back.

If you want to see the real Cuba; do it on a bike and do it with WOW. The staff, equipment, and support is amazing. All you have to do is arrive, be prepared to bike, and enjoy the Cuban environment and people. Everything is taken care of.
