What you'll do

I am a professional journalist and photographer, and I’ll give you a brief introduction to photography and tips on how to shoot good pictures. We’ll cross the street to the Pharmaceutical Museum, the only place of its kind in Latin America. You’ll learn how the Triolet family came to Cuba in the 19th century, and prepared recipes and pills with the instruments of the time. Then we’ll go to the Cathedral—recently renovated with pulpits, towers, and Catholic icons. During the experience we can visit an artist workshop-gallery, where you could buy some art works. We’ll take pictures at Matanzas Bay.
We will go around the city, I will show you beautiful sights and end the photoshoot with a good Cuban coffee in a nice place.

As a photographer, my pleasure is to get the best image of my customers and find good memories of their trips. I am more than happy if you already have photography experience, so we can share our points of view of our cultures.

This was a great experience. I learned a lot about the history and culture of Mantanzas. This area was my favorite in all of Cuba. Sergio was very knowledgeable, friendly, and an excellent photographer. Montanzas is considered to be the Athens of Cuba and has an artsy and creative vibe to it. I highly recommend this tour.

This was for sure the BEST experience of our trip. Matanzas is the most beautiful city in Cuba!, full of art and magic. Sergio is the kindest Cuban you’ll meet, he is also an artist and he knows everyone and everything around. He prepared an awesome experience for us also at Varadero, were we had the most delicious food at his aunt’s house!!! You SHOULD be part of his experience.
