Authentic Cuba Travel, Your Gateway to Authentic Cuba Unparalleled USA Cuba Travel Expertise
Authentic Cuba Travel provides legal travel services to Cuba for authorized US educational institutions and organizations (including religious organizations). We also facilitate travel arrangements for individual American travellers looking to go to Cuba for professional research or on people to people tours sponsored by US organizations.
We take care of flights to Cuba’s main destinations departing from USA ports (Miami, Tampa, New York) or through third countries like Canada and Mexico. Authorized US travelers can travel through a third country subject to the same restrictions and requirements as those flying directly from USA.
There is no doubt that Cuba is one of the most incredible travel destinations in the Caribbean. So much of history has happened here over the course of hundreds of years, and due to political issues that have strained Cuba travel and tourism, much of the Cuban culture lies relatively untouched by outside influences. At Authentic Cuba Travel, this is the side of the island that we want our travellers to see and explore. We want to take you beyond tourist resorts and beautiful beaches and into authentic Cuba.
Getting to know the authentic Cuba means taking the time to see smaller towns and villages. It means getting to explore Cuba’s architecture, see Cuba’s beautiful parks and nature reserves, and hear Cuba’s music and spend time with the Cuban people. Our Cuba educational & cultural tours will do so much more than simply give you fun in the sun; we can provide a true cultural experience. So many people outside of Cuba know only what they have read in history books or seen on television, but the true Cuban experience is one that is richer, broader, and deeper than you could possibly imagine.
If you want to get to know Cuba the way the locals know Cuba, authentic Cuba tours are your best choice for the opportunity to get to know the authentic Cuba. Authentic Cuba Travel specializes in educational travel, cultural travel, nature travel, Cuban festivals & events, custom Cuba tours and more, and thanks to recent changes in USA Cuba travel regulations, we are currently able to provide legal Cuba travel services for authorized American travelers looking to visit Cuba.
Take the time to look through the large selection of thematic authentic Cuba tours we offer and we are sure you’ll understand why Authentic Cuba Travel is your gateway into the authentic Cuba.
Authentic Cuba Travel proudly supports the campaign Autentica Cuba (AUTHENTIC CUBA) by the Cuban Tourist Board of Canada. Take a tour of the real Cuba!
Authentic Cuba Travel's Core Values
Despite the fact that almost 3 million travellers come to Cuba each year, very few people get the opportunity to see and experience the real Cuba that can only be found outside of overcrowded tourist resorts and sunny beaches.
What makes Cuba unique are its people and its culture. For travellers seeking more than just a fun in the sun getaway, Cuba cultural and educational travel from Authentic Cuba Travel offers a completely different approach to Cuba tourism. Each year we run more than 50 unique authentic Cuba tours that offer anything from festivals and cultural events to arts, architecture, nature, and more. At Authentic Cuba Travel, we work to create escorted Cuba tours that help better capture Cuba’s cultural identity and to showcase what makes Cuba authentic even among other Caribbean islands.
To put it plainly, we want people who embark on our authentic cuba tours to have the opportunity to experience the real Cuba; to eat the Cuban food, speak with the Cuban people, and see Cuba the way locals see it. The moment you contact our Cuba travel agency, you speak with bilingual tour directors with years of experience in the Cuban travel industry. Better still, once you arrive on the island, you will find that your tour escort will be a world-renowned, Cuban expert and university graduate.
Another quality that helps set Authentic Cuba Travel apart is that all of our fully escorted tours to Cuba are built on the principles of sustainable tourism. In short, it means that our travellers are given the chance to see and experience the authentic Cuba because we make a promise to respect the people, culture, and environment during our tours.
Cuban locals play a large role in developing our itineraries in accordance with the rules and guidelines of the Cape Town Declaration on Responsible Tourism, and actually receive a large percentage of the money generated by our tours.
The staff here at Authentic Cuba Travel has gathered years of firsthand experience in Cuba’s tourism industry as well as in working with North American travellers. If you are looking for the opportunity to experience the real Cuba, Authentic Cuba Travel is your gateway to the authentic Cuba.
Right now, however, a rare alteration in travel regulations made by current US President Barack Obama offers US citizens, professionals, educators and students the opportunity to go to Cuba to take part in educational tours and people to people exchanges.
Here at Authentic Cuba Travel, we offer Cuba education tours, Cuba cultural tours, Cuba religious tours, Cuba study tours, Cuba architecture tours, Cuba festival travel, custom tours and more.
Our authentic Cuba tours, as our name implies, offer travellers the chance to see and experience the real and authentic Cuba that lies beyond tourist resorts and in the heart of the land, beauty, food, music, and people that call the island home.
The future of travel from the US to Cuba is uncertain, and right now, travellers have the rare opportunity to take part in fully escorted tours of different types from the team here at authenticuba.com.
It’s been a few years now since US President reintroduced the so called people-to-people tours to the Caribbean island. Recent surveys show that the ordinary Cuban has now a better and more educated opinion of Americans which was the main objective of the Cuba travel program. Surprisingly it also shows that the majority of Americans traveling to Cuba do also return to USA with a better understanding of the communist nation and the negative impact of the US Embargo on the Cuban people.
