"I cannot thank you enough for this amazing trip. I learned that you don’t have to speak the language to have fun. I connected, enjoyed and had a lot of fun without any single word in Spanish. I learned about music, how to cook Cuban food and dance. I cannot wait to come back again to visit Cuba. To Carlos and Olga, thank you so much for making me feel like home and part of your family❤️." -Salman Al
Trinidad, Cuba is a magical colonial town on the Caribbean coast of Cuba. Population of Aprox. 74,000, it was inscribed on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1988.
On our trips to Cuba, you may purchase your visa for $50-$100 at the Fort Lauderdale (Or Miami) airport. The visa falls under the people-to-people and educational category.
Air fair for the tour is separate. We fly to Santa Clara, Cuba from Fort Lauderdale with Jet Blue airlines and for round trip it is generally around $150-$300.
We all stay in the same neighborhood and have a hearty breakfast given by the owner of the house you are staying at. We enjoy optional activities during the day and gather together at Carlos and Olga's house for an amazing dinner every night. Of course optional dancing out at night!!!
Rooms are shared 2 people per room (2 beds), unless you would like a private room it is $200 extra for the 6 nights. There is a private bathroom and air conditioning for each room.
Our Cuban "host families" are very welcoming and happy to welcome us into their homes. Bringing gifts is a nice gesture and here are some ideas; clothes, shoes, shampoo/conditioner/lotion, anything electronic, a bottle of wine or alcohol, games or toys for the kids, seasonings/spices.
Our dance and music instructors are some of the finest; talented, fun, friendly and professional.
You will need to sign and submit a waiver before travel along with a list of any allergies or conditions and emergency contact.
Bring sun screen and comfortable walking and dancing shoes! (FYI heals would be very difficult on the cobblestone streets of Trinidad.) Also a long pair of pants if you wish to participate in the horseback trip.
Blessings and Viva Cuba!!!
