Itinerary

TRAVEL TO CUBA FOR US CITIZENS / RESIDENTS IS STILL POSSIBLE AND LEGAL! This trip is offered through the Support of the Cuban People license. According to The US Department of the Treasury’s recent FAQ’s page, this category for travel is still legal. The document states that you should “engage in activities that enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote Cuban people’s independence.” It is really important to understand that although one license or purpose of travel to Cuba has gone away due to recent regulatory changes, there still are many licenses that people can qualify under. We are working with a company that understands what those licenses are and has helped us create an itinerary that really will capture the essence of Cuba, while abiding by all regulations so that the travel is still legal. If there is a regulation change after the time of booking, a full refund for the land portion will be made available to you. It is advised to purchase travel insurance to receive a refund on your airfare as well in the event of a regulation change.
