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 in 2011, 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 $630 more per person.

The following is included:

  • One-night hotel accommodations 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 land transfers within Cuba
  • 11 meals: four breakfasts, four lunches and three dinners
  • All taxes and entrance fees
  • A full-time schedule of activities

Highlights include meeting with experts on U.S.-Cuban relations; meeting artists in a neighborhood known for its Afro-Cuban culture; learning about the Cuban educational system during a trip to an elementary school; and visiting a coffee-shop owner and a medical clinic in the Las Terrazas farming area. Plus, stop at the mansion and museum of Ernest Hemingway.

Depart on May 24; June 7; Sept. 24; Oct. 4, 8, 15, 25. For $200 more per person, travel on the following dates: Apr 5, 9, 19, 23, July 2 & 16, Aug 2, 16, 27.
