Cuba’s beautiful beaches and rich culture are enticing

Have you always wanted to go to Cuba, but weren’t quite sure how to get there, or if it was even possible to go to Cuba? A spirited and beautiful island with delicious food, a rich culture, and fabulous beaches, Cuba’s proximity to the United States would make it a hot destination for many, but until the Castros are gone or the U.S. gives a thumbs up to American investors, this island paradise is seen by very few Americans. That makes this great island free from a lot of tourists and Home to thousands of burgeoning baseball stars, palm lined beaches and great cigars, Cuba is an island full of adventure and possibility. You can attend a local baseball game and check out some of the best players in the western hemisphere and buy plenty of snacks for $1, or sip rum with locals and work up your courage to try out your new salsa moves, or just spend a day lounging on a picture-perfect beach. However, while you may be intrigued and feel allured by Cuba, but aren’t sure how to get there or what to do once you arrive. Since the U.S. does not want its citizens to travel to Cuba or spend their money there, it may be difficult to figure out how to dodge the regulations and get in and out of Cuba. The best way to see and experience this vibrant nation is signing up for a small group adventure tour.

So, ok, I know what you are thinking. “A travel tour? Isn’t that what old people do?” The answer is no. The truth is travel tours have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a foreign place. First off, they keep the groups small, usually capping out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group of gawking tourists. Second, these tours don’t just scratch the surface of the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would on your own. Plus, since it is difficult to find travel information about Cuba, going with a travel tour is the best way to know the facts about your travel there and the best way to get around. These tours have also been developed to showcase the best of the best, so you’ll save yourself from countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out where to go and what to eat. Oh, and don’t worry, you definitely won’t be experiencing Cuba from the window of some bus the entire time. You’ll be dancing, drinking, smoking, hiking, and snorkeling your way through this little seen and exotic island. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up for one of these adventure tours, pack you swimsuit and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime.
