FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CAN U.S. CITIZENS STILL TRAVEL TO CUBA? Absolutely! President Trump’s travel bans did not end travel to Cuba. We are traveling to Cuba to “support the Cuban people” and “provide humanitarian support”. We will maintain a full time schedule of humanitarian activities and activities that support the women and children of Cuba.
WHICH AIRPORT DO I FLY INTO? Arrival and departure from Cuba should be made out of Jose Marti International Airport in Havana (HAV). Arrival and departure times should be within the hours of 8am and 8pm. We pick you up at the airport and provide airport transfers in Cuba for free.
WHAT IF I HAVE HEALTH OR FOOD RESTRICTIONS? We will try to be accommodating to anyone with health and food restrictions. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate patrons who have restrictive mobility. On this trip you should be able to walk independently as walking is the easiest way to get around and the streets are narrow with a steady stream of cars. It is highly recommended that you wear comfortable walking shoes or sneakers for the daytime excursions.
As far as dietary restrictions are concerned, we can only ensure that vegetarian options will be provided. We also encourage you to bring snacks with you just in case there are not enough options at a particular location to satisfy a full meal.
*Please note that although Cuba is noted for their top notch healthcare, we cannot supply health professionals on our tours for your convenience. Thus, if you are on medication it is your responsibility to keep up with scheduled doses as recommended by your doctor.
WHERE ARE WE STAYING? To provide you with an authentic travel adventure we will stay at a warm, inviting, clean and comfortable bed and breakfast in some of the most enchanting neighborhoods of Cuba.
