Immerse yourself in Cuba's history, culture, music and cuisine with this $1899 per person trip that includes nonstop air from Miami to Havana and a visitor's visa.

The ban on travel to Cuba has eased for U.S. citizens in the last year, but only a small number of companies -- including Friendly Planet -- have received people-to-people licenses to bring travelers legally from the States.

This four-night package fosters educational interaction with Cuban residents through planned events every day. Similar offers from other U.S. companies cost at least $530 more per person than this trip.

The following is included in the price:

  • Nonstop roundtrip airfare on a U.S. government-licensed charter service
  • U.S. Treasury Department license and letter of authorization
  • Cuba entrance visa
  • Four nights at the historic and well-reviewed Hotel Nacional de Cuba in Havana
  • A Friendly Planet escort and a "people-to-people" guide
  • All land transfers within Cuba
  • All 12 meals: four breakfasts, four lunches and four dinners
  • All taxes and entrance fees
  • A full-time schedule of activities

Highlights include: meeting with experts on U.S.-Cuban relations; learning to salsa at a weekly block party; visiting artists in a neighborhood known for its Afro-Cuban culture; seeing a cigar factory (and learning about the hand-rolling process); 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 from Miami on May 30 or Sept. 19 for this special price. For $100-$200 more, leave May 9; June 20; Sept. 5; Oct. 24; or Dec. 5. Other 2012 departures are also available.

Also available: Spend more time in Cuba with a seven-night, $2799 per person trip that includes more activities and two nights in the Trinidad area. See the link below for more details.
