You’ve devoured Cuban food before. You’ve enjoyed the occasional Cuba Libre. You maybe even snuck a Cuban cigar. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)
How about you book all that, and a heck of a lot more for your next adventure? Funjet Vacations is proud to offer travelers “people-to-people” trips to the Caribbean’s biggest island for a cultural exchange of the previously “unknown” country. This experience grants Americans the opportunity to interact with the true Cuba, gaining an unprecedented understanding of its people and cultures.
Best of all, you can plan as little or much as you want of your excursion. Funjet has five and seven-day tours you can stick to, or you can design your own itinerary. You are required to observe two hours per day of cultural experiences on a “people-to-people” trip, but those excursions and experiences are up to you. And Funjet Vacations can help you arrange those plans before you leave, or you can set everything up in Cuba.
What we’re saying is — you’ve got options.
It starts with the resort. There are three main hotel regions of Cuba that serve as the best home-bases for your travels; Havana, Varadero, and Cayo Santa Maria. Each region has several large hotel partners that Funjet has special relationships with.
We highly recommend pre-arranged transfers. No matter where you’re staying, it’s best to set up your transportation to and from the airport/hotel to smooth the process from touchdown. We’re happy to help coordinate those transfers to make a complete package.
Immerse yourself in Cuba. There are literally dozens of excursions to choose between. From scenic (catamaran snorkeling trips) to historic (Spanish-American War fortresses) or artistic (Ernest Hemingway’s favorite haunts), you’ll find your brain whirling from sunup to sunset.
We recommend booking as many outings as you can prior to traveling for a smoother experience (i.e. you can use U.S. credit cards this way). Your comprehensive Cuba adventure is just a few clicks away. Can’t you just taste the Ropa Vieja?
