Visit Cuba for the trip of a lifetime. Thanks to better relations and eased travel restrictions between the United States and Cuba, American citizens can now travel legally to this formerly inaccessible country under one of 12 general licenses. If you fall into one of these categories we can offer two fantastic ways to explore: escorted people-to-people tours and hotel only options.
What are people-to-people trips?
People-to-people trips are educational programs that are open to anybody, but require a full-time schedule of activities that produce “meaningful interaction between the traveler and individuals in Cuba.” Now that Americans can design their own people-to-people trips, it is less clear what constitutes “full time” or “meaningful interaction.”
Can any United States citizen visit Cuba now?
Americans still can go to Cuba only if the trip falls within one of 12 categories, including visits to close relatives, academic programs, professional research, journalistic or religious activities and participation in public performances or sports competitions. They can also go to organize a professional event or competition, to film and produce television programs and movies, to record music and to create art there. Even those traveling to Cuba independently on people-to-people trips are expected to have a full-time schedule of activities and retain documents that demonstrate how they spent their time. Ordinary tourism remains off-limits: Travelers may be asked by their travel organization to sign an affidavit that denotes the purpose of their trip, and they are required to keep travel receipts for five years after they return.
Contact Colesville Travel and we will create a memorable trip making sure all legal requirements have been fulfilled. Rest assured that every aspect of your trip will be taken care of, down to the last legal requirement of the new regulations.
Cruising to Cuba
You can also cruise to Cuba and visit 3 historic cities. You will cruise for 7 nights in a comfortable cabin aboard the MV Adonia, and you only have to unpack once.
On your cruise, just about everything is included. 3 1/2 days of shore excursions, including stops in Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos. During your travel between ports, you can spend your travel time relaxing by the pool, not sitting on a bus.
Every night, you’ll return to the comforts of the MV Adonia, where are all the details of getting from location to location in Cuba are taken care of. Enjoy the sights, the sounds, tastes and rhythms of everyday life and relax knowing that virtually all the costs, including meals, lodging, and daytime shore excursions, are already planned for you and covered in the price of your journey.
