Now offering my own People-to-People trips to Cuba!

I’m thrilled to say I’ve just been licensed by the Department of the Treasury to lead People-to-People trips to Cuba! Officially the license was issued to my one-man tour company and not to me, but still.

The license covers everyone in my groups – meaning that everyone traveling with me is visiting Cuba legally. “People-to-People” means you learn about Cuban culture/society through direct encounters with Cubans – and often help them learn something about the U.S., too.

Of course, like all my trips, these are small group trips designed for “tourists who hate tourists” and want something a little more intimate, a little more real, and a little more colorful! To design the itineraries, I draw on my experience working in Cuba over the last two years. I also aim to make each trip one-of-a-kind… because a stale itinerary is no more fun for me than it is for you.

If you might be interested, drop me a line! I’m happy to hear about your interests and recommend an upcoming trip… or keep you in mind for some trip further in the future.

This sign reads, "End the embargo against Cuba." In Cuba you frequently see signs and billboards with political slogans like this. They typically either champion socialism and solidarity - or call on the U.S. to end the embargo or release the Cuban Five.
