Posted: 15-Jul-15 16:53

As demand grows for travel to Cuba since the easing of diplomatic relations between the island nation and the United States, insightCuba has put together a second series of long weekend trips to the country. The four-night trips to Cuba will start in January and will take travellers to lesser-known areas in the country.

InsightCuba to offer long weekend trips to Santiago de Cuba in January

Cuba has become one of the world's hottest destinations over recent years and as diplomatic relations between the United States and the Caribbean country resume, more Americans are looking to plan trips to the island that has been off-limits for decades.

InsightCuba has announced that it will launch a second series of trips to lesser-known destinations in Cuba starting in January.

The tour operator will offer the four-night Weekend in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba's second largest city. There will be nine departure dates between January and May 2016 and itineraries will include live traditional Cuban music performances, trips to the birthplace of the Cuban Revolution, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the beautiful Cayo Granma, that is home to red-roofed wooden houses that surround the harbour.

Travellers will be escorted by an expert Cuban guide and an InsightCuba tour leader during the trips. Tom Popper, president of InsightCuba, explained:

"American travel to Havana is growing by leaps and bounds-but Santiago de Cuba offers access to a seldom-visited part of Cuba, one that shouldn't be missed."

The trip starts from $2,895 per person for double occupancy (extra $400 for single occupancy), and include return flights from Miami to Santiago de Cuba, one night at the Sofitel Miami hotel, airport transfers, a private welcome reception, superior accommodation at the Melia Santiago Hotel in Santiago de Cuba, meals, excursions, people to people activities, and access to some of the most famous places in Cuba that have rarely been seen by the public.

InsightCuba has been operating tours to Cuba since 2000 and the company also operates the popular Weekend in Havana tour, plus six scheduled Signature Cuba tours that offer 175 departures throughout the year.

After more than five decades of hostilities between the United States and Cuba and a travel embargo, the two countries will open embassies in Washington in the United States and Havana in Cuba on 20th July, 2015.
