Why we love our operator in Cuba

In Cuba we work with a local operator who shares our values of creativity, authentic local experiences, supporting the local people, economy and environment.

“We’re a small group committed to travel to Cuba, with a long history of working with organisations deeply rooted in all things Cuba.  We love it so much, it’s all we do (and we believe that makes our tours that much better). Not a tour person? Hey, neither are we. We believe in travel, not touring. We focus on the people – you, and the Cubans you’ll meet – to create experiences that are unique and personal. The options for what you can see, do eat and experience is many – so many, they’re overwhelming.

With our eyes and ears on the ground, we believe that we can offer better programming and more authentic activities than others who offer many different destinations in their programming.  We do our best to support small local businesses as well as young and upcoming entrepreneurs who share our passion and appreciation for responsible travel, the environment and Cuban culture.”
