CheapCaribbean.com expands into Cuba with new tours
Online travel site CheapCaribbean.com announced Wednesday it will begin offering eight-day tours to Cuba in early 2016 jointly with Cuba Travel Services, a U.S.-based operator that charters flights from Miami to the neighboring island nation.
The trips, which start at $5,500 per person, include all accommodations, meals and air/ground transportation for departures starting February through October 2016. The trip starts in Miami, followed by four days in Havana and wrapping up in the Cuban resort town of Varadero.
“Rich in history, varied landscape and vibrant culture, Cuba is ripe for exploration,” said Steve Dumaine, CEO of CheapCaribbean.com.
“The country is on the cusp of an economical comeback, and we’re excited to offer U.S. travelers the opportunity to discover and explore this beautiful island in its 1950s freeze-frame,” he said.
Cuba is the most recent example of CheapCaribbean.com’s expanding footprint in newer, more off-the-beaten-path destinations. In January, the brand began offering trips to Haiti through partnerships with the Haiti Tourism Board and Moulin Sur Mer, its first hotel partner in the region.
Due to high demand, the brand has added additional trips to Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and Belize, the company said.
