Immerse yourself in Cuba's history, culture, music and cuisine with this $1999-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 in the past two years, alllowing a small number of companies to hold "people-to-people licenses" to legally bring travelers from the States; this is what allowed Beyoncé and Jay-Z to visit Cuba this month.

This five-night package fosters interaction with Cuban residents through daily cultural and educational events. Overall, travel to Cuba costs more than trips to other Caribbean destinations, but this package is at least $760 per person less than similar Cuba offers from other government-approved U.S. companies.

The following is included:

  • 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 and 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
  • 11 meals: four breakfasts, four lunches and three dinners
  • All taxes and entrance fees
  • A full-time schedule of activities

Highlights include a stop at Ernest Hemingway’s mansion; a visit with artists in a Afro-Cuban neighborhood; a trip to an elementary school to learn about the Cuban educational system; a performance from a vocal group and ballet school students including discussions on music and dance opportunities in Cuba; a meeting with experts on U.S.-Cuban relations; and a visit to a medical clinic in the rural Las Terrazas farming area.

Depart on Sept. 6 or 10 for the $1999 price. For $2099 per person, leave on Sept. 24; or Oct. 4, 8, 15, 25. Other dates -- July 2; or Aug. 2, 16, 27 -- cost $2299 per person.
