Classic Cuba DCL
A two week tour of Cuba using a mixture of premium hotels and casas particulares
As the US sanctions in Cuba relax, the country is experiencing a huge increase in tourism from those interested in visiting the country before the expected surge of visitors from the USA. We firmly believe that it is a fantastic time to visit Cuba, and to see the island in its current form. It is a unique place which will change forever once the sanctions are fully lifted.
This has had knock on effects for the travel industry as accommodation providers in particular struggle to cope with the increasing demand. Our Classic Cuba trip is likely to be particularly affected as it includes some of the island's most sought after accommodation. We have found in the last 6 months that the confirmed accommodation on this trip is changing at late notice, sometimes while the tour is going ahead, and it is not always possible to find premium standard accommodation as an alternative. Whilst we can't predict or prevent these changes, we will ensure that you are accommodated elsewhere, and if the accommodation is of a lower standard than advertised we will compensate you accordingly on your return.
To fully enjoy the Cuban experience, we want you to be prepared for changes - often at the last minute - and to be aware that the standard of accommodation offered may not be as expected. You should travel to Cuba with an open mind, a willingness to expect the unexpected, and above all an adventurous spirit!
