CUBA TRAVEL SURGE: Now is the time to visit Cuba! We guarantee that you will be fully compliant with President Trump’s new travel policy guidelines.
Hola–we are Carlos, Mercy, and Jim. We are passionate about Cuba and its people. We met in Havana in 2003. Carlos and Mercy were professionals who also worked in the Cuban Travel Sector. They visited every part of Cuba while working as travel agents, tour managers, and multi-lingual travel guides.
We got together on later trips, and became good friends. Carlos and Mercy helped me attend activities that were not available to most visitors. They helped me establish my own tours, so I began taking my own groups in 2012. Carlos and Mercy eventually relocated to the U.S., but last year they returned to Cuba to see their families and observe the remarkable changes happening in modern Cuba. This past November, Carlos and Jim served as co-guides for a group of American health care professionals.
The three of us now have our own travel business—CubaTravelSurge.com. Our focus is to take Americans (and others) to Cuba on unique, reasonably-priced expeditions where they will experience this beautiful country, meet with locals on a people-to-people basis, and help them understand the complicated situation involving Cuba and the United States Government. Our perspective is middle-of-the-road. We work closely with Cuban agencies and pay particular attention to the confusing and ever-changing regulations regarding Americans visiting Cuba.
Our programs for the remainder of 2017:
*Cuba’s Health Care System–10 Days/9 Nights: June 18-27; November 10-19; December 8-17, 2017; $2650 double-occupancy.
*Catholic Culture Tours–8 Days/7 Nights; Saturday-to-Saturday, beginning July 8, 2017; $3200 double-occupancy. (The participants are members of individual parishes. Additional travelers may be added at the discretion of each group’s leader.)
We have also developed custom tours based on the schedules and interests of various groups. For example, you and your group of friends or family can decide for how long and what dates you want to visit Cuba. Some travelers can return home early, and others can stay over in Cuba up to 30 days after your main program is completed. We offer a recommended core program which would include the sights and activities that most first-time Cuba visitors would expect to see. In addition, we can arrange individual optional activities, such as opera, ballet, baseball, SCUBA, deep sea fishing, hiking, bird-watching, dancing lessons, cooking classes, religious programs, and many others. Your group would have the same Cuban guide, driver, and bus for your entire expedition. We can also arrange conferences, weddings, and family reunions.
Although you can visit Cuba legally as an individual, we believe you should consider making your first-time visit as part of a group. There is just too much to see and do, especially if your time is limited. Traveling in a small group will provide enough structure to efficiently see the highlights, while providing enough free time to pursue individual interests. If you would like to be coordinator for your group, we can offer you a substantial discount.
