Travel to Cuba
Experience an Enriching, People-to-People Educational Exchange in Cuba
Although it’s situated just 90 miles off the coast of Florida, legal travel to Cuba was off-limits to U.S. travellers for five decades. Abercrombie & Kent USA, LLC, operates these people-to-people educational exchange programs to Cuba under an OFAC general license. This meaningful, immersive travel involves full days spent embarking on authentic experiences through one-on-one exchanges with the Cuban people.
A destination like no other, Cuba is a place where art, music and opportunities to interact with its fascinating people are found at every turn. Unlike traditional “tourist” travel, this people-to-people experience reveals Cuba’s true spirit, from an exploration of historic buildings with a local architect to interacting with farmers at a local tobacco farm, and from a a private choir concert to a visit to an influential artist’s studio. From start to finish, this people-to-people educational exchange offers insight into the daily life of residents, with opportunities or authentic, enriching meetings, discussions and interactive experiences.
Cuba remains a developing country, and guests travelling here should adjust their expectations accordingly: delays are common and meals are not very flexible, making special dietary requests challenging. In the event that specific individuals and locations become unavailable, comparable activities will be substituted. Participation in all scheduled, people-to-people activities is mandatory and the program allows for little, if any, free time. Yet, it is filled with rewarding interactions that prove unforgettable and endlessly fascinating.

We learned a lot about the way Cubans live, including their joys and challenges. We not only loved meeting the Cuban people, but also seeing everything from the art to the vintage cars.
