Travelers who want to visit Cuba now have more options with Delta Vacations, as the company recently announced that it has expanded its portfolio to include escorted tours that help travelers satisfy the People-to-People Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) requirements. 

The packages are available for purchase with travel beginning April 30. Clients can choose a guided experience to Havana and Varadero spanning eight days and seven nights or a shorter option of six days and five nights in Havana. 

Each experience will allow travelers to immerse themselves in the local culture with activities around the country that include visits to historical sites like the El Morro Castle, Old Havana, Vinales and Finca La Vigia, Ernest Hemingway's home. With these activities, participants will also have the opportunity to converse and interact with locals.
