Tour introduction and overview of activities

Come to Cuba and experience the wild sensual island forbidden to Americans for the last half century. Imbibe in the exotic tastes, sights, sounds and aromas that have captivated adventurers, pirates and Americans since the discovery of the New World.

Witness Havana’s ancient eclectic architecture. Fool around in pulsating Afrocuban and Latin music venues. Romance Cuba’s stunning other worldly art. Reward your palate with authentic Cuban cuisine, beer and rum, and perhaps toke on the world’s best cigars.

In contrast to the lifeless Soviet satellites of bygone times, Cuba is an explosion of light, color, intellect, music, vitality and verve.

Come meet a people eager to engage with their long lost American cousins. They’ll welcome you into their lives and home they call La Habana. They are so happy America and Cuba are friends again. Come celebrate this historic reunion. We are here to help make it happen.

Imagine a nation still pristine and innocent – where strip malls, billboards, neon lights, McDonald and Starbucks are absent. One-in-ten cars are more than 60 years old. Cuba’s like a time machine with the dial set to the 1950s.

You’ll sample and savor it all during your weekend fling in Havana. Come play around and let your hair down in the Pearl of the Caribbean. You deserve it especially now that every American can come to Cuba legally.

Cuba’s big! Its land mass is 42,426 square miles – about 80 percent the size of Alabama. Cuba is nearly as large as Louisiana, and larger than Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Ohio or Indiana. Altogether it’s bigger than Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.
