Book your plans to visit Cuba in 2012
Betty Maclean Travel Inc., in partnership with Tauck Tours, now offers People-to-People tours to Cuba. The Naples travel agency is taking reservations for tours that will begin in April.
The escorted tours will be based around key themes of Cuban culture and the arts, education, entrepreneurism, agriculture and the spiritual side of Cuba. Travelers will meet Cuban students and teachers, learn about Ernest Hemingway’s Cuba, discuss art and private enterprise at the studios of community artists, visit with farmers to talk about agrarian reform and organic farming, meet with and listen to Cuban musicians and have dinner at a paladar (a small, privately operated Cuban restaurant).
For decades, few U.S. citizens have been able to experience Cuba travel. But now, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has granted Tauck a license to provide People-to-People educational exchange travel to Cuba through 2012.
