CHANGE OF TOUR JOINING ACCOMMODATION:

An image of the Hotel Presidente in Havana, Cuba.

After much discussion with our partners in Cuba, we have decided how to best manage the joining accommodation for our group tours.
Depending on availbility, we will provide accommodation in one of the following options for the first night of the tour.

  • Homestay (Casa particular)
  • Hotel Presidente
  • Hotel Los Frailes (Western Cuba Only)

If we supply a homestay and not a hotel as the joining accommodation for any given tour, an airport arrival transfer will automatically be included.
You will be advised of this together with the base house address 60 days before the commencement of the tour by the reservation staff.

Everything has been working really well with our selection of homestays and the hosts in Havana. We are very happy with the outcome and the positive feedback from tour participants to date. We definitely prefer the personal touch of a homestay and the contact with the locals this provides.
All group tour participants will arrive to a designated 'base house' in Havana for each tour. If a person is not staying at the base house,they will be collected by their homestay hosts and taken to their other homestay nearby.

END OF YEAR FESTIVITIES IN CUBA!


As the end of year is getting closer we are seeing a great amount of interest in the vibrant exciting end of year festivals and parties in Cuba.
The most popular being: Parandas de Remedios, Charangas de Bejucal, and the New Year Eve Party in Havana.
These can be enjoyed on a variety of group tours. (Please check the availability below).

You can also request a visit to the Charangas de Bejucal festival as an optional activity leaving from Havana on Dec 24, 25, 26 and Jan 01.
