OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE REASONABLY-PRICED EXPEDITIONS WITH AN EMPHASIS ON SAFE, HEALTHY, RELAXED TRAVEL, WHILE EXPLORING HAVANA, THE COUNTRYSIDE, THE MOUNTAINS, & THE BEACHES. REFERENCES FROM PAST TRAVELERS ARE AVAILABLE.
Our scheduled programs:
*Cuba Core Program with Focus on Health Care and Sustainability–10 Days/9 Nights: Remaining Scheduled Trips for 2018: November 9-18; December 7-16. NOTE: You can schedule your own dates if you have your own group of 8 or more. Mature children 16 years and older are welcome.
Cost: $2950 double-occupancy. The itinerary and details are posted below.
*Military History Tour of Western Cuba (10 days/9 nights) and Military History Tour of Eastern Cuba— (10 days/9 nights): Dates to be determined by group participants. (They may allow additional outside travelers at their discretion.) After our recent trip to research the itinerary, we decided that Cuba is just too big and has too many attractions to try to see the whole country on one trip, so we will offer a tour for the west and a different one for the east. We will be adding more details and specific itineraries in the next few weeks.

Comments from recent travelers—
“I really enjoyed this trip. I was very surprised at the high quality of our housing and meals. After the first few days, I learned to relax. I felt safe throughout our trip, even when wandering around alone at night in Havana.” —Farah Krozan, Atlanta
“We are not in the health care field, but we enjoyed the medical presentations. We feel that was just about the right amount of exposure. We both especially enjoyed the trip to the national park in the mountains, Hemingway’s home, and the old American cars. Thanks for a wonderful trip.” —Bob Manning, San Jose
The price for our 2018 trips is $2950 (double-occupancy). Single Supplement for Guaranteed Single Room is $350.
On previous expeditions, the $550 cost of round-trip charter flights from Miami to Havana was included in the price. Now, the cost of these flights will NOT be included, so our price is less. Overall costs for travelers will be much less. If requested, we will be happy to assist you to arrange your flights. Flight schedules change frequently. Sometimes you can save money by connecting in various cities. In spite of what you may have recently read regarding decreased interest by Americans, United, JetBlue, and Southwest Airlines will be ADDING 30 flights a week, beginning in the fall.
Previous travelers have called our expeditions “Tours for Non-Tour people!” We emphasize true people-to-people contact. Our hotels have been selected because of their locations. In addition to our program, our facilitated expeditions offer optional activities and more free time than more highly-structured commercial tours. Our itinerary includes most sights and activities you would expect on a first visit to Cuba. In addition, there will be conferences and presentations on a variety of topics. Travelers will have opportunities to interact with Cuban professionals and other citizens, so we can learn from each other.
