Full description
Take a step back in time in the town of Hershey on this day trip from Havana. Find out about the famous American chocolate tycoon, Milton Hershey, with a local English-speaking guide. Ride Cuba's only surviving electric train, party onboard with an open bar and music, then savor lunch in the very house where Hershey received his guests.

Start your day by leaving the emblematic city of Havana and heading east to the Province of Mayabeque and the small town of Hershey, which Hershey himself established in 1916. When he arrived in Cuba, he immediately fell in love with the country and its population and decided to build a sugar mill, which was completed in 1918.

Nowadays named after the famous Cuban revolutionary Camilo Cienfuegos, Hershey is a ghost town. Take a walk through it and learn more about the heritage of Hershey's sugar empire. Immerse yourself in the sweet memory of the town's golden age in the early 1920s, and try some guarapo, freshly made sugar cane juice.

On this journey back in time, you will also ride on the only surviving electric train in Cuba, which dates from the 1920s, and enjoy a joyful celebration accompanied by Cuban rhythms and beverages, including Cuban cocktails, soft drinks, water, and beer. As a perfect conclusion, have a traditional Cuban lunch in the house where Hershey entertained his guests before returning to Havana.
