As the market for travel to Cuba continues to expand, Abercrombie & Kent has added a new touch to the mix with a new private travel program for Cuba.
A&K’s Signature Cuba: A Private People to People Journey fulfills the U.S. Department of Commerce’s requirements for people-to-people travel, but does so for private groups and individuals rather than the standard group tour that has previously been the primary travel style for Americans traveling to Cuba.
The seven-day program is packed throughout with personal encounters with Cubans, as is required under the people-to-people rules. A&K includes a visit with the owner of a paladar, one of the new privately owned restaurants in Cuba; a neighborhood walk with painter and ceramicist José Fuster; a private salsa lesson; an exploration of the Museo de Artes Decorativas in the former residence of Countess of Revilla de Camargo; an encounter with the Muraleando Neighborhood Community Project; a lecture on the history of U.S.-Cuba relations by a foreign service scholar; and a look at Las Terrazas eco-community, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
The cost of the program is $10,795 per person, not including international airfare. With four guests, the price drops to $8,295 and with six, it drops to $6,995. So it pays to bring your friends.
