Haimark to launch new "people to people" cruises to Cuba in 2016

Haimark has launched a brand new itinerary for 2016 that will offer cruises around the island of Cuba.

The cruise company will debut people to people cruises around Cuba for nine nights and ten days, starting from February, 2016.

The sailings will depart from Miami in the United States and will circumnavigate the Caribbean island, stopping off at places of interest so passengers can discover the country's culture and community.

The itineraries start from $4,599 per person based on double occupancy and will include tours and activities such as visits to the Buena Vista Social Club at Cafe Taberna in Havana, performances from the Cantores de Cienfuegos Choir, personal tours of contemporary artists' studios and schools in Havana Vieja (Old Havana), arts and architecture tours of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, where tourists will have the chance to meet and interact with local Cubans.

The tour will also include visit to the island's beautiful parks and natural attractions such as the Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the green tobacco plantations and organic gardens of the Vinales Valley.

Following more than 50 years of diplomatic hostility, the United States and Cuba have recently resumed relations that enable travellers to visit under 12 categories.

Travel restrictions have been eased for Americans but general tourism to Cuba is still prohibited for U.S residents. Despite this, travellers can still visit the Caribbean island through people to people programmes and tours for purposes of education, culture, and religion that have been organised by licensed U.S tour operators.

Cuba is a communist island nation situated in the Caribbean Sea, south of the Bahamas. Holidaymakers can relax on the beautiful white and golden sand beaches; snorkel and scuba dive along the world's second largest barrier reef; or take tours of the cities to embrace the culture of this vibrant nation.

Visitors can choose from an array of places to explore including the historic and vibrant capital city, Havana; the picturesque Jardines del Rey archipelago which boasts virgin cays, turquoise ocean waters and coral reefs; the Spanish Colonial city of Trinidad; and the popular beach resort of Varadero with 21 kilometres of coastline and pristine white sandy beaches.
