HAVANA, 21 August It wasn’t too long ago that travel to Cuba was near impossible but, slowly, opportunities are opening up for Americans.
Group IST has been granted a license by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets allowing the travel agency to offer an exclusive eight day People to People exchange program of Cuba throughout 2015.
The Havana to Cienfuegos tour will be based on the mega-yacht S/C Panorama from which travelers will explore the western part of the country. Cuban experts and interpreters will help Americans explore the country and meet the locals.
The program includes excursions to the UNESCO–designated Biosphere Reserve region and the eco-community of Las Terrazas, walking tours of Old Havana, a visit to the Sea Turtle Breeding Center and Endangered Species Protection program on Cayo Largo with coral reef and conservation experts, a tour of Cienfuegos, and more.
Havana to Cienfuegos starts at $4490, including seven nights on the S/C Panorama, all meals, a Cuban visa, mandatory Cuban medical insurance, and transportation. To learn more, visit groupist.com.
