Details

If you're interested in traveling to Cuba, there are some amazing trips coming up this year. Groups will be mostly solo travelers and small, usually between 7-10 people and truly local, as we will be staying in local bed and breakfast style accommodations.

I know that Havana has been in the media a lot recently because of the hurricane and the sonic "attacks". I was actually just in Havana the 2nd week of October. I went to all the places we'll visit during the tour and spoke with many Cubans about the situation. I felt very safe and the Cubans I spoke with told me that they want you to come discover their island! There's still people hanging out on the Malecon, music around every corner, and the mojitos are still delicious :-) All of our casas that we'll be staying in have been cleared for travel as well.
