While the recent reports may confuse tourists, travel agents, and even some media, I want to assure U.S. citizens interested in experiencing Cuba in an authentic way that they may continue to do so legally through Cultural Cuba
ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) June 11, 2019
Cultural Cuba, a niche destination management company specializing in private tours to Cuba, has announced that it continues to legally operate “business as usual,” despite the U.S. Treasury Department’s new restrictions imposed on cruises and People to People travel to the Caribbean island.
David Lee, Cultural Cuba founder and owner, explains, “While the recent reports may confuse tourists, travel agents, and even some media, I want to assure U.S. citizens interested in experiencing Cuba in an authentic way that they may continue to do so legally through Cultural Cuba.”
Cultural Cuba provides private custom travel under the authorized OFAC categories of “Support for the Cuban People,” “Humanitarian,” and “Religious Purposes.” These curated trips provide clients with insider access to authentic Cuba while directly supporting hundreds of Cubans including artists, musicians, dancers, school children, and small business owners, most of whom completely rely on the funds generated by Cultural Cuba’s private tours. The new June restrictions affect companies that organize large group tours, cruises, and independent travelers who check the ‘People to People’ box for travel, but do not actually travel with a licensed tour operator.
Lee elaborates, “Our itineraries are curated in strict accordance with the Office of Foreign Asset Control guidelines, but are customized to our travelers' specific interests and preferred travel pacing. We continue our enriching, enjoyable, and compliant Cultural Cuba tours as usual, providing real insight into the culture and people of Cuba, while taking care of all the logistics for U.S. citizens touring in a foreign country with travel regulations.”
Commercial airlines are not affected by the latest U.S. government restrictions and continue scheduled flights to Cuba. The destination is accessible through several non-stop flights from nine major cities in the U.S., including New York, Newark, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Orlando, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
