Cuban Tours, Cuba

Tropical, authentic, real, with unique people, culture, sites and food.  Cuba.  Only 90 miles off our shores but far, far away from us in so many ways.  Soon, tourists will descend on Cuba as the embargo lifts.  And, as a Turquoise Reef Group customer, we know the best time to see something is before the big commercial interests, in the world of accommodations that means mega-this and mega-that, begin to take hold of this precious look at the past.

Turquoise Reef Group, in partnership with experts who have been taking "boutiquer's" into Cuba for decades, has organized a Cuban Discovery Tour of 8 days and 7 nights each giving our clients the opportunity to see and feel the real Cuba complete with boutique accommodations Cuba style, in the homes of families anxious to welcome you.  And now you can book your weeks in September through November with as few as 8 people.  You will experience an amazing adventure built for Turquoise Reef Group alumni.  Take a look at this itinerary.  Price based on required confirmed minimum particpation starts at $3,249 per person including all taxes, all lodging in Cuba, most meals, all tours and transportation in Cuba.  This is bucket list travel to the extraordinary.  Don't miss out as space is limited.  Call 800.538.6802 today.
