Cuba is calling, and more and more Americans are hearing that call. The vibrant island nation previously shrouded in mystery is now ready to be rediscovered by its neighbor to the north.
Due to travel restrictions that remain in place visitors to Cuba from the United States, more and more structured “people to people” holidays to Cuba have popped up. Countless tour operators cater to the curious by operating within the confines of the rapidly changing rules and regulations for U.S. travelers.
While convenient, these large tours are often complete with overcrowded hotels and massive buffet meals. These mass tourism pitfalls can feel really impersonal, and make it difficult for visitors to immerse themselves in the warm and inviting communities they visit. There’s little room for exploring your own interests when you’re traveling alongside 50 other people!
Don’t want to miss out on all the special moments that make traveling to a new place so fulfilling? There are other options that allow for more meaningful experiences. In fact, Discover Corps recently introduced new holidays to Cuba, including a Celebration of Arts & Culture tour, a Preserving Nature’s Wonders tour, a Yoga & Culture Exploration tour, and a shorter Havana Weekend Getaway.
