WHY Plan Your Own Trip?

Authentic Experiences

Cuba tours end up going to the same places that cater to the needs of “educational” group tours and end up cultivating a cottage industry of “authentic” experiences that are not always the most representative of the real Cuba. Creating your own itinerary, with the help of insiders like us, allows you to explore on and off “the beaten path” as much as you want.

100% Legal

Yes, the rules are complicated, but tour companies encourage the idea that it’s too complex and legally tricky to plan an independent trip (that’s how they get business). It’s not true. Planning a trip under the “Support for the Cuban People” category is completely legal and doable without overpaying for a packaged tour.

Save Money

Cuba tour companies charge huge sums to travelers for accommodations, transportation, tours, and other amenities that can easily be booked directly, without a middle man. To do it, you just need to know where to go to find the right info, and luckily, you found us!

Personalized Plans

Cuba has such a rich and interesting variety of things to see and do, from history and politics, to nature and agriculture, to arts and culture. Planning a trip that fits your unique interests is a great way to create an entry point into a deeper understanding and appreciation of Cuba.
