  • 1st Annual Spring Break Getaway: Havana, Trinidad & Panama!

    As though being an island in the tropics and having breathtaking beaches weren't enough of a draw, Cuba stands out from its neighboring island countries due to the fact that visiting can feel like taking a trip back in time! With the recent lessening of restriction around U.S. citizens visiting Cuba, we at AAT immediately made visiting the island a top priority! Join us as we experience all the Cuban cities of Havana and Trinidad have to offer!

    Oh yeah...there is also a 3 day extension in Panama! :-)

    Do I Need a Travel Partner?

    NO!!  While the option is there for you to get a single occupancy room if your choose, by no means do you have to select it if traveling alone. We understand that the extra money spent in getting your own room, takes away from the money available to you to splurge on the streets of Havana.

    For that reason, we extend each traveler the option of having us pair you with a suitable roommate for no additional cost. Roommates are paired based upon the answers to their personality questions on their registration form, as well as their ages and even astrological signs. Prior to departing you will given the contact information of your roommate, giving each of you the opportunity to get properly acquainted.

    Hello. This will be my first excursion with AAT. Please forgive my ignorance to the process. I have selected RSVP and would like to have a couple add ins. However, the "click here" link for deposit seems to be inactive. Also, what is the coupon code? Thanks for any support.

      You can go here to make your deposit: http://www.africaname...­

      Unfortunately the coupon code expired already.

    Hey all - I just wanted to share a great tip I found regarding how to possibly avoid the 13% (10% penalty + 3% transaction fee) currency exchange fee for US dollars in Cuba.

    I can provide the source if anyone wants it, but the suggestion is this... "Euros – You can order Euros from you bank which I suggest you do 5-7 business day in advance if you go this route. At the time I’m writing this post the Euro is trading at $1 to €.88, the Euro is trading with the Cuban pesos €1 to $1.12 CUC. Let’s take $100 USD and exchange it twice to get to CUC. $100 to €88, €88 to $98 CUC. If this exchange rate is the same when you visit you would do better converting Euros."

    As of today, those trading rates are the same. :) I also find that Bank of America has the cheapest exchange rate to order foreign currency compared to other banks.

    This is being referred to as a spring break event. Does that mean most travelers to these destinations will be spring breakers?

  • Lawrence M.

    The brochure link should now be working! :-)

  • Lawrence M.

    Morning guys! Our hotel in Havana will actually be the Habana Libre rather than Roc Presidente. I'll make that change in brochure later today.

    Patiently waiting, or rather impatiently waiting on more details. My co-worker went to Cuba this past Spring, it is still a bit (well, quite a bit) restrictive for Americans, so I am curious to know what company/agency you will use for the trip. And Panama! Mi Panama! Mi país, mi gente! Cuba and Panama have been on my list forever! And is that Trinidad, Cuba - I assume? So many questions...lol.

    2 · August 18

    • Lisa B

      Oh I was hoping to spend more time in Panama :( (without the extension), but I'm still interested. Thanks for the sneak peek!
