Your Safety is our #1 Priority!

The Cuban Government has introduced additional cleaning and reporting requirements for tourism, hospitality and transport operators. Things like temperature checks upon boarding buses, wearing safe masks in public and using hand sanitisers when entering public places are an everyday occurrence to name a few things. As such we are introducing processes and guidelines to our travellers as well as our suppliers we are working with to ensure that the government health and safety guidelines are met to keep our travellers safe. 

As a responsible traveler we also ask you to check your government’s travel advisory and the World Health Organization website for the most up to date information about requirements to travel to and for your stay in Cuba as well as for any travel restrictions that may be in place from your location.
