Fresno Chamber of Commerce Trip in June

The Fresno Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Explorations have announced plans to “Discover Cuba” in June 2012 in a new opportunity for local residents to see the island.
Chamber Explorations is a division of Premier World Discovery, a Redondo Beach-based company that focuses on world travel. The White House greatly expanded Cuba travel for Americans earlier this year, and specific licenses issued by the Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control authorize registered guests of programs such as the Chamber’s to visit Cuba legally. It will be the Chamber's first time offering a trip to the island.
“We’ve had a few calls in the last couple of weeks,” said Angela Vasquez, event coordinator for the Chamber. “In the next two weeks, we’ll get a lot of interest.”

On Thursday, Jan. 12 at 5:30 p.m. there will be a presentation on Discover Cuba at the Fresno Chamber of Commerce. Vasquez said there was “a group of usuals” who would make the trip, but there were still spots available.

The cost is $3,799 per person, double occupancy, with a $600 supplement for those who wish to have their own room. The fee includes round trip airfare from LAX, a Cuban Travel Visa, Cuban Health Insurance, 8 nights of first class hotel accommodations, 21 meals, sightseeing and admissions, a professional Cuban bilingual host/guide, hotel and airport transfers and baggage handling, and transportation by deluxe air conditioned motorcoach.

Anyone interested in the June 12 trip is asked to call the Fresno Chamber of Commerce to reserve a spot at (559) 495-4800 or email for a brochure.
