Petaluma, CA – Intrepid Travel, one of the world’s largest adventure travel companies, has partnered with International Expeditions to create a culturally immersive itinerary for American visitors to legally travel to Cuba, starting this December.
The trip has been co-created by Intrepid and International Expeditions, and will be available exclusively through Intrepid Travel. The trip is operated by International Expeditions under their “people-to-people” license issued by the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
Travelers familiar with Intrepid’s style of travel can expect the same level of expertise, local interaction and support. Every departure will have an American Expedition Leader on the ground, as well as a knowledgeable, English-speaking local Cuban guide. The purpose of the itinerary is to immerse travelers in Cuban culture, from the country’s music, art, and food to its cultural traditions and history.
The itinerary starts and ends in Miami and includes a visit to Hemmingway’s home in San Francisco de Paula, a visit with a local rice farmer and an artisan’s workshop in Trinidad, a visit to the mountains to tour a coffee farm in Parque Guanayara, a taste of Havana nightlife, a visit to the Bay of Pigs Museum and much more. Prices for the 8-day itinerary start at $3999 (not including round-trip charter flight from Miami to Havana). The first departure is December 20th, followed by six more departures through March 2014.
