Because of Covid and the US Embargo, things are very difficult in Cuba now.  Many foods and and other basic needs are in short supply.  Cuba plans to open up more starting on November 15, 2021, but we won't know for awhile just when we'll be able to travel there again.  Let us know if you are interested and we'll keep you notified.  

Come with us on a Legal trip to Cuba!

  • All Cuba trips are led by David Anderson, Cr. Photog. CPP, and can include as much – or as little – photo instruction as you want. Dave has friends and contacts in Cuba who will make your trip GREAT!

  • All trips are very limited in size – most will have no more than 4 – 6 people.

  • Our travel is authorized by the general OFAC license.§ 515.574 Support for the Cuban People. Staying in private homes and eating at private restaurants is required, plus you will be asked to bring an extra bag with supplies that our Cuban families and friends need (Dave will make suggestions before your trip.).

  • Cuba is changing in many ways – some good, and some not so good. WiFi and Internet were introduced in 2015 and can now be accessed (for a small fee) in some public places. Although Cuba is renovating many historic buildings, many more are rapidly deteriorating. Havana is said to be losing about 300 buildings per year due to decay and collapse, so it changes nearly every day.

  • The U.S.continues to add new restrictions, so we don’t know how long Americans will be allowed to travel to Cuba.  Contact Dave to book your trip soon!

  • Fees vary depending on the dates and destinations we go to in Cuba, but usually range from $1800 - 2400 including accommodations, breakfast daily, all ground transportation, and more!

NOTE:  Our January, March, and April 2020 trips are already booked up.  We may schedule another for late March or mid-May, and of course, later in the year.  (Let us know dates that work for you!)
