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 $1999-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 few 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:
Groups are limited to 22 people or fewer. 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 talk 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 Las Terrazas farming area.
Depart Sept. 21 at this price, or +$100 July 6 or Aug. 24; +$200 May 11 or June 8; or +$300 April 20.
This is part of a larger sale on Cuba packages including tours that visit additional destinations in Cuba.
