Visit eastern Cuba and enjoy three celebrations!
July 03-10, 2015
Santiago is hot hot hot!
We invite you to a week long program to celebrate the FESTIVAL del CARIBE, Cuba’s cultural FIESTA del FUEGO (FIRE FESTIVAL), as well as the 500 YEAR FOUNDING of the VILLA de SANTIAGO de CUBA! Santiago will be alive with music and dance during this time with esteemed folkloric groups of Cuba's diverse traditions converging to perform throughout the city, along with the neighborhood congas santiagueras that traverse the city enticing all with their music to take to the streets.
Your trip will start in Miami. You will then will fly to Santiago de Cuba where you will spend five nights and days enjoying the Festivals and one overnight to the magical coastal town of Baracoa. You will be housed in the very high quality five star hotel Melia Santiago, and three star hotel Portosanto in Baracoa. You will have a full time Cuban Guide, and a full time driver. You will enjoy luxury transportation throughout the trip. The trip will include 13 meals total including daily breakfast at the hotel and a variety of lunches and dinners. Meals will be at a combination of the best government restaurants, the most exciting private Paladares. There will be free time for dining on your own and for exploring as you would personally like, and other related travel activities in Cuba.
Cuba travel has gotten easier!
The new Treasury Department regulations for travel to Cuba have changed for the better. We are an agency that is primarily devoted to assisting travel General License holders. For all members of your party the travel license has liberalized considerably. Participants will travel under the General License for People to People travel § 515.560(c). This is a General License program that the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) offers for all travelers to Cuba. This new license was set in place on January 16th, 2015. People to People travel still requires a full time program of activities that will result in substantive interactions with Cuban nationals on the island. It requires that each traveler confirm their intention to maintain a full time schedule with this focus and it also requires an organization such as Curuye to certify that the participants will engage in a full time schedule and insure that this happens. We, as a TSP, are authorized to provide you the paperwork and administration of this General License.Once the travelers are approved to travel through the license program listed above we can make the travel arrangements below. We also look forward to implementing your program with the goal of insuring that it is followed. .. For more information on OFAC licensing please visit the following document:
