NEW CUBA TRIP SCHEDULED!
Join CREST’s Next Charter Club Trip:Responsible Travel in Cuba | May 1 – 8, 2016
Is Cuba on your travel to-do list? Here’s your chance for a once-in-a-lifetime visit with the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST)! Due to high demand, CREST is hosting a second specially designed eight day/seven night Charter Club trip with a focus on ‘eco-surf and turf’ – a selection of the island’s most extraordinary marine, cultural, and natural tourism offerings. The trip, scheduled for May 1 – 8, 2016, will include a bed-and-breakfast stay in countryside, which provides an opportunity for interaction and conversation with every day Cubans. We will visit Vinales Valley, which is considered by many the most beautiful place in Cuba, and Las Terrazas, which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and has been successful in integrating ecotourism into the life of the community.The trip will also allow opportunities for snorkeling, birding and/or scuba diving on the Guanahacabibes Peninsula. The tour will conclude in Havana, with a stay in a recently renovated old city hotel and meals in local restaurants (“paladares”). Throughout the trip, you will enjoy educational meetings with leading artists, musicians, health and tourism officials, and marine biologists, salsa lessons and musical performances, and visits to various must-see sites including La Finca Vigia, where Ernest Hemingway wrote Old Man and the Sea.
The cost is $3,625 per person, double occupancy, or $3,925 per person, single occupancy, including the chartered roundtrip flight from Miami to Havana. Space is strictly limited, and participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis. Interested parties will be notified of registration status by a CREST staff member as soon as possible. A $1,000 deposit per traveler is due by January 4, 2016. Spaces cannot be guaranteed until deposit is made.
