CUBA is the largest island in the Caribbean and the most “mysterious” as well; fairly inaccessible to Americans for many years. Still the case, only sanctioned tours for specific approved reasons are possible. This is rapidly changing, and the cruise industry has been granted permission to offer Cuba circumnavigation cruises under strict guidelines. A U.S. citizen is not supposed to wander about freely at will all day or night, however this is expected to change in the not too distant future. With one main island about 760 miles long and 55 miles wide on average, 11 million inhabitants growing up under the influence of communist rule until fairly recently, this enigmatic country is unlike any other. A Caribbean Island with all of the usual parameters associated with this; beaches, rain forests, proximity to the U.S., along with a history and culture unlike any other Caribbean Islands makes this a destination not to be missed. From the capital city of Havana which is one of the nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the island, to the powdery white sand beaches such as the 13 mile long Varadero Beach sitting on a peninsula, to the lush interior raising up to almost 6,500 feet above sea level, this island is amazing.
GO-Enterprises specializes in Cuba, having traveled there multiple times, with numerous helpful contacts there!
Although U.S. citizens have not been able to travel freely here, Canadians and many others have been flocking here for years to enjoy fine hand-rolled cigars on the delightful beaches, in historic Havana and at various regions throughout Cuba such as Vinales, Cienfuegos and more. This means there is an infrastructure developed, which is ready to explode with the easing of restrictions with the U.S. Some say a large influx of U.S. travelers may negatively impact the mystique that is Cuba. We say, contact a destination travel specialist SOON so you don’t have to worry about it!!
