New East Coast Fall Tour!
We are pleased to announced a new photo tour for Fall of 2016. “Havana & East Coast Adventure,” Nov 29 - Dec 9 will give you a healthy taste of the capital before flying to the east coast off the beaten path for visits to small towns, fishing villages and tours along the coastal highway.
The best time is now
As the door to Cuba has just squeaked open a bit, it's the perfect time to see and experience its distinctive culture, history, music, dance, art, architecture and cuisine. With the recent improvement in relations between Cuba and US changes are in store for the small island nation. Cuba's mystique may disappear as the modern tourism industry invades this tiny island. Get there now as it won't be the same in 5 years!
Our photo tours are open to all, no matter where you hail from and no matter what your interest in photography is. In addition to providing you with the best photo opps in Cuba, we’ll also focus on meeting people and experiencing the culture. Good times and learning experiences are sure to be had by all.
