Travel to Cuba is still LEGAL and this trip will follow all the rules set by the U.S. Treasury’s OFAC. Cuba is frozen in time with classic America cars whizzing by crumbling colonial architecture which will make you feel like you’re back in time. Our group will be mostly solo (female) travelers and we won’t be staying in the massive, soulless chain hotels, but rather in guesthouses/B&Bs to get a small taste of the “real Cuba”. We’ll do all the things on your bucket list like riding around in a classic convertible car and learning the art of cigar rolling, but we’ll also be interacting with the locals during our morning walk around a Havana neighborhood as well as during a typical Cuban night out!

- 8 nights accommodation in casa particulares (double occupancy)
- Private Cuban guide throughout
- Private, air-conditioned transportation
- Activities as noted on the itinerary
- All breakfasts, 6 lunches, 4 dinners

COVID UPDATE: If your trip is cancelled due to COVID, a full refund of all money paid for the tour will be made.

If you have any questions or if you would like more information, please visit the website: https://globe-drifters.com/trip/cuba-march/. Or email [masked]

An off-the-beaten-path trip during Vietnam’s greenest season… Venture into the heart of Indochina as you explore the bustling, frenetic cities of Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City as well as the lesser-visited Pu Luong Nature Reserve. April is the perfect time to visit Vietnam as the crowds are fewer and the rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see are brilliant shades of green. See Vietnam as few get to see it.

Verdant rice fields & local villages: Pu Luong’s misty hillsides and rolling green landscapes are often overshadowed by the now touristy Sa Pa. Enjoy serene views in peace and relax in our hotel’s infinity pool while taking in the scenery.

Cruise Ha Long Bay in style: Sail around the untouched areas of Ha Long Bay away from the hordes of tourists on a 5-star luxury ship.

Travel like a local: Hop on the back of a motorbike with our expert drivers to see the real Ho Chi Minh City through the eyes of the Saigonese!

A boating experience like no other: Hop in a bamboo basket boat and paddle downriver in Hoi An while local fishermen cast their nets for today’s catch.

If you are interested or have any questions, you can email [masked].
