Immerse yourself in Cuba's history, culture, music and cuisine with this $2199 per person trip that includes nonstop air from Miami to Havana and a visitor's visa.
The ban on travel to Cuba was eased for U.S. citizens last year, but only a small number of companies -- including Friendly Planet Travel -- have received people-to-people licenses to bring travelers legally from the States.
This five-night package fosters educational interaction with Cuban residents through planned events every day. Similar offers from other U.S. companies cost at least $1300 more per person than this trip.
The following is included in the price:
Highlights include: meeting with experts on U.S.-Cuban relations; visiting artists in a neighborhood known for its Afro-Cuban culture; learning about the Cuban educational system during a trip to an elementary school; and meeting farmers in the Las Terrazas area. Plus visit with a historian at the mansion and museum of Ernest Hemingway.
Depart on May 3, 24; June 7, 21; Sept. 24; Oct. 4, 8, 15, 25. Travel on other dates for just $200 more per person.
