These changes do include a “grandfathering” provision, which provides that previously authorized people-to-people travel will continue to be authorized if the traveler has already completed at least one travel-related transaction (such as purchasing a flight, reserving accommodation) prior to June 5, 2019. This means that guests who are currently booked are still able to travel legally under the people-to-people educational travel category. So, if you are booked on a Globus people-to-people travel program, you are still able to travel, but Globus can no longer take any new bookings.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits on this Cuba travel program! Join Globus and be among the first American travelers in five decades to visit Cuba and its most fascinating cities. This special people-to-people program allows Americans and Cubans to share meaningful interactions while enjoying the rich history and culture of this amazing country. Every day of your travel program is filled with compelling educational activities and conversations, where both Cubans and Americans can openly share their ideas and opinions. Participate in discussions about Cuba’s history, agriculture, music, religion, and art. You can embrace Cuban culture when you interact with local artists and exchange views on the importance of art to a community; engage with musicians who will introduce you to Cuba’s popular music; discuss private enterprise in Cuba with local owners and staff; and meet Cuban baseball players to discuss this favorite pastime in both Cuba and the U.S. All people-to-people interactions weave seamlessly into the daily visits around the country, serving to enrich and enlighten. On this Cuba tour program, you’ll also have a chance to explore some of Cuba’s colonial cities with their cobblestone streets and historic architecture. In fact, the city centers of Trinidad and Havana have all been named UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Fascinating, informative, and insightful discoveries await you on this rare opportunity to visit the “Pearl of the Antilles.” It’s an experience like no other!
