  • Travel in Cuba: - Tourist infrastructure in Cuba cannot be compared with that in most Latin American countries as the standard of service can be erratic, road journeys can take longer than anticipated and dining options are often limited. However, we feel that any deficiencies are more than compensated for by Cuba’s culture and scenery and recommend a flexible approach to travel when visiting the country. Hotels are subject to change at short notice and will be reconfirmed with your final documentation.
  • Private Journeys: - Prices for Private Journeys shown in the price table are not valid during Easter, Christmas and New Year.
