Responsible tourism: Vacation to Cuba

Environment

Cuba has a unique environment. In recent times, Cuba has seen an increase in the number of people looking to travel to the country. After decades of US sanctions, Cuba’s infrastructure is very limited and struggling under this demand and another reason why we prefer to use Casa Particulares (home stays) with the environmental impact being far lower than that of hotels.

Cuba is a wonderful country offering an enchanting mix of culture, colour, architecture and landscapes. On this tour we visit Las Terrazas, Cuba’s first sustainable rural community and biosphere reserve. Las Terrazas also focuses its efforts on the protection via research into the local ecosystem. Las Terrazas is exemplary in its approach to sustainability and has been awarded UNESCO conservation prize. An eye-opening experience for visitors, witnessing a small and developing island, leading the charge.


Visits to the countryside offer insight into how much of what is eaten is grown locally and provides income to farmers and rural communities. Nature lovers have the opportunity to explore and appreciate the flora, fauna and cave systems found in the Escambray Mountains and the coral reefs on the coast. We encourage visitors to respect these natural environments and leave nothing but footprints behind.

Community

On this small group tour we stay entirely in Casas Particulares (home stays) putting travelers in direct contact with their island hosts. Avoiding large chain hotels has less impact on the environment whilst supporting the local economy by instead using small individual business owners. Best of all, staying at Casa Particulares means that travelers get to scratch beneath the surface of Cuban life and interact outside the purely transactional setting of buying a meal or souvenir. This promotes understanding, travelers have the chance to eat authentic Cuban home cooking and get a sense of what life is like inside a Cuban home and converse with their hosts. This promotes understanding, when cultures meet and interact barriers and preconceptions are broken down and national stereotypes disappear.

We use licensed guides who are proud of their country, once again investing in the local economy and supporting professionals that want promote their culture by bringing an in depth tour of the island that goes beyond simply traveling from place to place. Due to the social economics in Cuba, guides are from all walks of life and will introduce you to local culture and cuisine on the island on an itinerary that will take you to many historical points of interests, particularly the Cafetal Buenavista (Cuba’s oldest coffee plantation), Cienfuegos and Santa Clara where we visit the Che Guevara Memorial and museum.
