Fathom has created three new excursions for guests on its Cuba cruises that leave every other week from Miami.

“In Hemingway’s Footsteps” shows off Havana through the eyes of the American author and includes stops at his home, Finca Vigia, and his favorite fishing village, Cojimar, where guests can step into the room in which he wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls.” The five-hour tour is $59 per person.

In “Beyond Havana: Exploring the Cuban Countryside,” passengers will explore the rural side of Cuba, including coffee and sugar cultivation and visit Las Terrazas biosphere reserve. The nine-hour tour includes lunch and is $69.

Also priced at $69 is “Magic of Santiago Featuring El Cobre.” Highlights include the final resting place of Cuban hero Jose Marti and a tour of San Juan Hill, home to the Rough Riders assault during the Spanish-American War.  

The six-hour tour ventures beyond the limits of the Santiago city center into the Sierra Maestra mountain range for the city of El Cobre, a historic copper-mining town with African influence.
