Description of Exciting Cuba family vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We believe that travel is for everyone. This is a really core principle for us and we passionately believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. We take all ages and all levels of fitness and we do everything possible to ensure that our tours are accessible for everyone, irrespective of physical ability or cognitive conditions. In our experience, there is almost always a way of making a tour suitable for everyone. It’s conceivable that there may be some situations that we can’t accommodate but we haven’t come across them yet!
Everything that we do is tailor made so if we have guests with limited mobility, for example, we will tailor the programme to take this into account, and will suggest hotels which will suit. Just let us know what your requirements are and we can talk you through the options
In most of our destinations, it is not possible to arrange a special vehicle adapted for wheelchairs, but we are able to arrange a large vehicle which will have ample storage for a wheelchair. Some hotels have wheelchair access; these may be few and far between but we can suggest where these might be possible. Where there is no wheel chair access, but not too many steps, hotel staff are always happy to help with lifting the wheel chair.
Blind/ limited vision:
All of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited vision. Information in braille is almost never available but local support can be provided, for example ensuring that porters are available to carry luggage in airports / train stations / hotels so that the travel partner is free to assist the person with limited vision.
As stated above, all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited hearing.
We have experience in providing appropriate spaces for all travelers, whether this means hotels with access to outdoor space, ground floor rooms, quiet rooms and so on. As all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be also be on hand to provide necessary one on one assistance to a traveler with cognitive conditions as required.
About this Free from food:
If guests have serious dietary issues (or allergies) we will arrange translations into the relevant local language(s) to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served.
The staff who are responsible for running our tours will always be LGBT friendly. Many of the destinations in which we operate do not offer equal rights to the LGBT community, and outward displays of affection may be problematic. We will be able to give advice on this on a country by country basis.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe always employ local guides and drivers, and all the services we offer in Cuba are operated by local people wherever possible. This not only ensures we maximise income and employment opportunities for local people, but also that we get first hand information on life in Cuba.
As our trips are tailor made for individual families, this means that the low level of tourism we promote has a minimal impact on the environment. Our local drivers help travelers to understand their surroundings and minimise any intrusion. Throughout this trip we are in close contact with the people who live here and visit local markets where you get the feel of real Cuban lifestyles.
We operate all of our tours in Cuba in conjunction with a locally owned and run partner that shares our environmental and social values. In general in Cuba we use small locally owned and family run accommodation which has been built and furnished using local materials and is not part of a large international chain of hotels that seem to dominate Cuban tourism.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.
PeopleAs with our environmental promise, our local partners are committed to ensuring that tourism brings about positive social change. The money generated by us staying in family-owned casas helps with the upkeep of the property but also provides an invaluable source of income in more remote areas, keeping the money that comes in for the local community rather than going to a huge hotel chain.
We also encourage our families to eat in small characterful restaurants which gives a real insight into local life. Visiting these smaller places means that your financial contribution is most welcome and helps keep your visit as personal as possible.
By traveling in Cuba as a family, you not only educate your own children about the country, but also the Cuban children you come into contact with, who may know practically nothing about life outside Cuba. By interacting with local people, you and your children will help to encourage lifelong friendly attitudes and understanding between different cultures.
