GroupIST, in partnership with Variety Cruises and the parent company of Beyond Cruising, brings you the splendors of Cuba in one of the most spectacular ways possible – a yacht cruise.  Engage with the locals, in a safe and convenient way . Cuba, which was opened up by the Obama administration in late 2014 with the return of diplomatic relations, is most associated with the capital city of Havana. But one of the best things about GroupIST’s, fully OFAC licensed people to people program in Cuba, is that it cruises to more unfrequented ports of call in Cuba. With a boutique-sized vessel, GroupIST’s yachts are able to dock right in the heart of Havana and bring you to places only reachable by sea. With much more personalized service, plenty of time in each port (including overnights) and incredible food. Cruise in style to Cuba with GroupIST.
