Take a Cuban cruise as part of a cultural exchange tour and enjoy a slice of history

American travellers can now enjoy the vibrant arts, stunning architecture and beautiful landscapes of Cuba thanks to a new raft of cultural exchange tours that are becoming more popular on the island.

This is the first time in years that Cuban travel has become available to US citizens, and these cultural exchange programmes are a fantastic way to enjoy all the island has to offer.

The tour provider Vacations By Rail is offering a number of packages for American travellers wishing to experience Cuba in all its glory. The tour will take in a trip to Havana, the classic Cuban city that has become synonymous with the island's bustling culture, as well as a journey to the tobacco plantations of the Vinales Valley.

From there, travellers will enjoy the views around Cienfuegos, as well as Maria La Gorda, Santiago de Cuba and Gibara/Holguin. There will also be time to take in the phenomenal sights presented by the Alejandro de Humboldt National Park.

The cultural exchange tours are available throughout 2016, and the Vacations By Rail package consists of train accommodation from New York to Miami, which prices starting from $5,353 for an 11-night trip. Travellers will have the opportunity to enjoy the comfortable surroundings of the Saint Laurent cruise liner, with sumptuous meals plus an abundance of activities and entertainment available on board.

And of course, when guests' feet touch terra firma on Cuba, the Caribbean's largest island, they will also be treated to a host of treats. There are the nine UNESCO World Heritage sites to enjoy – these are the focal point for some truly unforgettable images – as well as the fascinating history and jaw-dropping architecture to enjoy.

It that wasn't enough, travellers could check out a show or musical performance, try one of Cuba's most famous exports – cigars and rum – or simply take a dip in the clear turquoise waters.

Cuba is a truly enchanting place; and these cultural exchange packages enable American holiday-makers to see Cuba's beauty first hand.
