PEOPLE TO PEOPLE:
People-to-people is a designation used by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to refer to travel to Cuba for educational exchanges that don’t involve academic study. Simply put, it’s to describe travel to Cuba that is for the purpose of learning and engaging with the people of Cuba, not for school credit but to encourage and support the Cuban people and to promote independence from Cuban government authorities. These types of educational tours have been around since 2011, but prior to January 16, 2015 a company had to be licensed by OFAC to provide these tours; a long, arduous, and often expensive endeavor. Now these tours can be provided under the general license, which eliminates the need to apply to OFAC.
You can expect a full-time schedule (around 7-8 hours including travel time) of educational exchange activities that will encourage interaction with locals. You will have free time in the late afternoons and evenings but on these tours you must participate in the scheduled activities.
Commericial US flights are now open to Cuba and run about $400-600 roundtrip depending on where departing from, please call before reserving to best coordinate with times of the rest of the group.
The cost of the tour is $3000. A deposit of $800 is required to hold spot and the balance is due two months prior to departure.
