About us


Cuba Travel and Scouting specializes in creating unique tours to Cuba. Whether you’re traveling alone, in a small group or as part of an organization or production company scouting locations, we’re here to provide you with the best possible Cuban tours so you can experience the best island experience.


As a Cuban-American and a student of the island’s legacy, I will bring a unique perspective to your Cuba travel experience. I grew up hearing stories from my parents about Cuba’s 1950s heyday. My first visit to Cuba was in 1991 and I continue to make frequent trips. I still have family on the island and through the years I have also nurtured many contacts. I know Cuba’s physical and cultural geography. My frequent travels to the island and knowledge of its rich history will provide you with a unique perspective of its customs and idiosyncrasies.


I learned how to travel efficiently as a producer for Fox Sports where I traversed Latin America covering sporting and cultural events. I also speak Spanish and French fluently. I would love to share my knowledge and experience of Cuba with you.


What sets Cuba Travel and Scoutning apart? Our knowledge and understanding of Cuba’s governmental guidelines for travel allows us to offer a unique travel experience. By keeping our groups small and intimate we are able to customize our tours without adhering to government-imposed choices of sites, hotels and restaurants. This allows for greater flexibility and more personal, one-on-one service.


Our unique Cuba tours have been crafted with a focus on the island's rich, historical touchstones, natural beauty and architectural wonders. We strive to give you an experience that’s off the beaten path from standard tourist destinations in Cuba.


We look forward to making your trip to Cuba a memorable one.


Thank you for choosing Cuba Travel and Scouting.

Steps


These is what you need to know and what steps to take when you are ready to book a tour with CUBA TRAVEL AND SCOUTING:

  • Make sure you have a valid passport that covers the dates you’ll be spending in Cuba.
  • When you book our tours, you’ll be traveling to Cuba under the “educational, people to people - cultural exchange” criteria. Therefore you’ll fall under the “general license” required by the US Dept. of the Treasury.
  • You’ll have to get a visa to visit Cuba. Some airlines provide visas at certain airport’s departure gates. Check with airline or travel agency when booking your flight. If you’re traveling from Los Angeles with Alaska Airlines you can purchase a visa at:
    https://cubavisaservices.com/product/alaska-tourist-card. Please note that if you were born in Cuba you will need a special visa to enter the island. If you have any questions regarding visas, make sure you contact us before booking a tour with us.
  • You may be asked to get medical insurance to visit Cuba. Some airlines include the insurance in the price of the ticket. It usually runs for about 25 US dollars and you can always purchase such insurance when arriving at the airport in Havana.
  • Take a look at the different packages offered by CUBA TRAVEL AND SCOUTING. Chose a package that best meets your needs and proceed to book it. Space is limited to 15 people per tour group.
  • Once tour package is paid for, you’ll receive confirmation via e-mail with instructions on how to proceed.
  • Make sure you book your airline ticket according to the desired tour dates CUBA TRAVEL AND SCOUTING is offering. Our tours start on a Saturday and end on Sunday of the following week. We offer 1 or 2 tours a month so you’ll want to make sure to book your trip to Cuba on the dates we offer tours.
  • There are many airports in the island of Cuba, Be sure to book a flight that goes to Havana International Airport, also known as the Jose Martí International Airport.
  • Take Cash!!! This is crucial. Be sure to take along enough cash to last through your entire trip and cover all expenses. US credit and debit cards do not work in Cuba yet, so without cash, you will be unable to pay for the essentials not offered with our tours. Most hotels have in-room safes so that you can keep your cash secure during your trip.
