Trek Travel, a Wisconsin-based tour operator, has launched an eight-day bike tour of Cuba. The itinerary will take in major sights, colourful towns, and offer groups the chance to engage on a people-to-people basis with Cuban nationals – including author Julio Monoz, who will talk to the riders on his life in Trinidad.
American singer-songwriter Ben Folds is planning a Memorial Day weekend music and arts tour of Havana, the Ben Folds Havana Getaway Weekend. The tour will focus heavily on Cuba’s arts, with photography workshops, concerts, craft classes, as well as architectural tours and visits to museums. Folds believes that Americans have much to learn from Cuba’s commitment to the arts, and hopes to build bridges between artists in both countries.
Rapidly growing as a tourism destination worldwide, Cuba is now targeted as a hotspot for maritime leisure. Local nautical company Marlin S.A and the Spanish Logisprint are currently working to expand their offer of overseas fun within the island. In unison, they will launch the Cayetana catamaran, which is set to cruise Havana’s dazzling coastline.
With increasing numbers of American tourists in Cuba, enterprising Cubans are turning private homes into spa and wellness facilities, and capitalizing on the billion-dollar spa industry. Changes in the state-controlled economy that allow for sole proprietors (cuentapropistas) have encouraged resourceful Cubans to offer their own services, a trend which is sure to grow as travel to the island increases.
Spring is the air as we celebrate the arrival of British Summer time! A season of hope and optimism, of sunburnt backs and at least two consecutive days of a cloudless sky. But why wait for the Sun? Send your clients to Cuba next month on one of our Easter specials so they can show off their radiant sunny glow at the family BBQ whilst the "chef" turns sausages in the pouring rain!
