For Americans, Cuba occupies a mysterious and complex place in the lexicon of our cultural and political history. Once beloved as a socialite playground, the Havana high life of the early 20th Century gave rise to the Communist revolution prompting an enduring embargo for generations. Now, as we open our people-to-people Wildland Adventures on the largest Caribbean island, Cuba is the least commercialized and most fascinating isle of the Caribbean. While its political and economic isolation has held it back from development in the modern world, we explore the deep roots of Cuba’s traditional cultural heritage retained among its professionals and working class people living close to the land. Many of the sensual rhythms, political revolutions, art and passion of Latin America derive from the influences we experience traveling amongst the friendly, passionate, and sophisticated Cuban people you meet on our small group Wildland Adventures to Cuba.

Why Cuba Now?
We've been watching, and waiting, for the right time to start offering Wildland Adventures to Cuba and here's why we think the time has arrived... 1. Visitors to Cuba who engage in people-to-people tours now enjoy greater opportunities to plan more flexible and diverse itineraries fostering individual one-on-one interactions with Cubans from all walks of life. Heretofore Americans traveling legally on people-to-people tours in Cuba were strictly limited as to the people they met, where they could go and what they could do. Now, as a result of enhanced tourism infrastructure throughout much of Cuba, more people-to-people exchanges are sprouting up in diverse regions and communities. For example, there are more private B&B accommodations especially in more traditional enclaves of eastern Cuba. This means that visitors can engage in thriving grass-roots community endeavors. Artists and academics, farmers and fishermen, musicians and dance troupes are all eager to share their stories. 2....
