Gondwana EcoTours Is Latest Operator to Offer People-to-People Cuba Tours

Gondwana EcoTours has become the latest tour operator to offer tours to Cuba as the company recently announced a new, 10-day People-to-People tour of the country. 

Clients will sample homemade cuisine, dance with locals, enjoy a private concert with top Cuban musicians, tour Old Havana, swim in a cenote pool and relax on beautiful beaches. 

Other experiential offerings include a visit to a fourth generation tobacco farm, riding horses through a beautiful valley of tobacco and coffee farms, exploring a lesser known national park and snorkeling in waters teeming with fish and coral reefs. Tours are available September-January and start at $2,345 per person.

Throughout the trip, guests will have a private room and bathroom in different Casas Particulares, providing a unique opportunity to get to know the locals. These are Cuban home-stays, like an Airbnb, but with much more privacy and service.

“There are plenty of nice state-run hotels in Cuba, but they simply can’t compare to the cultural experience of staying in a Casa Particular,” said Gondwana EcoTours Founder Jared Sternberg.

Breakfasts will be served at the Casas Particulares, and lunches will be at Paladares, which are in-home restaurants. Some dinners will be at popular restaurants such as El Biky in Havana, while others will be at the homes of guides and hosts.
