SEATTLE, Dec. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Despite what you may have heard, don’t worry, Cuba is still open to American travelers. While new travel rules now state that Americans traveling to Cuba must experience the island within an organized group or independently under the “Support for the Cuban People” category of travel, you can rest assured we’ve gone the extra mile to ensure that every element of our new Cuba Highlights trip fulfills the requirements.
Travelers will learn to dance salsa, cook Cuban food, roll traditional Cuban cigars and explore the beaches and cities of this colorful nation on a nine-day trip.
The Cuba Highlights Tour Includes:
- Tours of several cities, including Old Havana
- Exploring the Cuban countryside, coastlines and beaches
- Stepping back in time with a classic car tour
- Watching and joining in with local dancers and musicians
- Savoring local delicacies
- Tours of local organic farms
Southern Explorations has created a fun, educational and interactive tour that meets all the specifications of a Support for the Cuban People tour. For U.S. tourists who want to visit Cuba, current regulations require entry under a Support for the Cuban People Designation. A U.S. visitor can visit Cuba as long as a licensed operator leads a trip that meets specific licensing guidelines, including being educational and involving direct interactions with Cubans.
Under current U.S. policy, the importance of ensuring that a visit to Cuba falls within these guidelines has become even more important. Southern Explorations is committed to making the travel process as straightforward and easy as possible, even within the unique travel requirements that traveling to Cuba demands. Visitors from other countries with no travel restrictions for Cuba will appreciate the attention to detail and cultural sights the tour offers as well.
Southern Explorations also provides a host of resources to travelers participating in their tours, including an interactive mobile app that shows the traveler’s itinerary even when not connected to WIFI. Other resources available in the app include country-specific advice, such as essential information about money, outlets and ATM usage, all of which are different in Cuba than in other countries, especially for Americans.
In addition to the Cuba Highlights Tour, Southern Explorations is also developing a Luxury Cuba Tour that will launch in the coming months, plus several tours for Cuban adventure travel.
