Cuba embodies a step back in time -- from the refurbished 1950s cars to historic buildings throughout the country. Explore its culture, art and cuisine with this $2199-per-person trip that includes nonstop air from Miami to Havana and a visitor's visa.

A travel ban from the U.S. has been eased in the past few years, and a small number of companies with "people-to-people licenses" now can legally bring travelers from the States. Yet these packages typically cost $3000 or more per person through other government-approved U.S. companies.

Friendly Planet Travel's five-night package fosters interaction with Cuban residents through daily cultural and educational activities, and it includes: 

  • One-night hotel stay in Miami before departure for Cuba
  • Nonstop roundtrip airfare on a U.S. government-licensed charter service
  • U.S. Treasury Department license, letter of authorization & Cuba entrance visa
  • Four nights at the historic and well-reviewed Hotel Nacional de Cuba in Havana
  • A Friendly Planet Travel escort and a "people-to-people" guide
  • All transportation within Cuba
  • 10 meals: four breakfasts, four lunches & two dinners
  • All taxes and entrance fees

Tour groups are limited to 22 people or less. The full-time schedule includes a stop at Ernest Hemingway’s Cuban retreat; a visit with Afro-Cuban artists; a trip to an elementary school; a performance from a vocal group and a discussion on the country's music scene; a meeting with an expert on U.S.-Cuban relations; and a visit to a medical clinic in the rural Las Terrazas farming area.

For $2199, depart on Jan. 19; June 8; July 6; Aug. 24; Sept. 21. Pay $100 more per person to leave on Nov. 10 or 24 (2013); Feb. 23; April 6 or 20; May 11. Dec. 29 also is discounted.

An eight-night package is also available and includes stops in the colonial town of Trinidad and the Caribbean coastal town of Cienfuegos.
