The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba.

The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba.
Considering travel to Cuba? Check out this trip review and travel tips with images from the Zimmerman family, 5x alumni travelers having been on Wildland Adventures to Costa Rica, Patagonia, India, Kenya and Peru. They asked us if we could arrange a short weekend-to-weekend adventure to Cuba with their adult son and his partner. They viewed this custom trip to Cuba as their first of more adventures to the island so they decided to stay together as a family in an apartment and focus exclusively on exploring Havana in depth. Jeff was specifically interested in pursuing his interest in drumming and everyone in the family wanted to learn all about Cuba. They also wanted to have time for independent exploration beyond the people-to-people guided connections we planned for them each day.

Top Five Experiences on our Inca Trail Trek and Amazon Adventure
Machu Picchu is one of the seven wonders of the world and its spot is well deserved. The list below breaks down this wonder even more, describing five awesome reasons a trip to Machu Picchu & the Peruvian Amazon should be number one, not seven, on your list of places to go. Spoiler: the last reason is time sensitive... 5) Arriving at the Inca town of Wiñay Wayna After three unforgettable days on the Inca Trail, you arrive at Wiñay Wayna, an Incan town perched on a steep forested slope high above the Urubamba River. You wander its large complex of ancient dwellings, terraces, and still functioning waterworks thinking about how far you’ve come, how unbelievable the journey has been so far, and how excited you are for what lays ahead – the “lost city in the clouds”, Machu Picchu. 4) Paddling the Amazon River Traveling downstream by dugout canoe, glide...
