The communities in Cuba have distinct types of activities that are as varied as there are locales. They welcome travelers who are there to engage in meaningful interactions, and provide services allowing them to earn a living and thereby achieve progress.

Communities Working Together

By following our OFAC-approved itineraries our groups benefit in so many ways. We know the best places to see which educate our travelers on a wide range of subjects, from diving in the pristine coral reefs to visiting Old Havana, or visiting an organic orchid farm and so many more. Once we know your preferred areas of interest, we customize your group's itinerary to include the most interesting and ecucational activities to fill your day, always compliant with guidelines set forth by O.F.A.C.

Eco Cuba Outings facilitates people-to-people exchanges of ideas by bringing U.S. travelers to engage with the local people in their communities, and contribute to the enrichment of the cultural and environmental efforts being carried out through non-government projects.
