DECEMBER 9 2017 - DECEMBER 16, 2017

An island expedition focused on people-to-people encounters, nature and cultural exchanges. The program is geared to nature lovers and people addicted to the arts, history and architecture. The tour has a very diverse itinerary featuring comfortable accommodations and tasty Cuban cuisine.

 

You’ll stay in four-star hotels in Havana, and while in Trinidad, at an all-inclusive beach resort. The historic cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos are the island’s top destinations after Havana. The excursion to the top of the Escambray mountain range in Soviet Army trucks is but one of many highlights of this trip.

 

The program includes visits to several UNESCO world heritage sites, tobacco farms, museums, and Ernest Hemingway’s home. You’re surrounded by music and art, and have ample occasions to engage in the realities of island life with everyday Cubans. We hope you’ll join us on this spectacular vacation to Cuba. Similar tours run thousand more.

 

Cuba’s big! Its land mass is 42,426 square miles – about 80 percent the size of Alabama. Cuba is nearly as large as Louisiana, and larger than Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Ohio or Indiana. Altogether it’s bigger than Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:

Travel insurance is not included in your tour price, but is recommended. Check WorldNomads rates.  I like this company because they insure your electronics. I became an affiliate because of that. So if you do purchase insurance with WorldNomads you will be helping me. There are also many other agencies out there. Which ever company you use make sure you are aware of what they are offering you in the policy.
