Greater Louisville Inc. Launches Trip

Take Advantage of a Rare Chance to Explore Cuba!

Greater Louisville Inc Trip to CubaThe 9-day, 8-night DISCOVER CUBA adventure trip, sponsored by the Greater Louisville Inc. and travel partner Chamber Explorations, is one of the hottest tickets in town. And with limited seating, it’s likely selling out fast. It’s a chance to do something few of us have had the opportunity to do—thanks to a recently-resurrected program known as people-to-people experience. First offered in 1999, people-to-people licenses have not been issued since 2003. A recent executive order this past year re-opened the door.
While tourism is not new to Cuba, travel to Cuba is new to most Americans. It’s your chance to experience a country that has long been off limits. This all-inclusive, well-planned cultural exploration will be true to the local culture with outings that will expose travelers to artists and craft workers and to sites that will share Cuba’s history from Cuba’s point of view. See Old Havana, Sugar Mill Valley, Partagas Cigar Factory, Finca La Vigia (Hemingway’s home), Pinar del Mar, Bay of Pigs, Cuban Literacy Museum, Cuban School/Day Care, and visit the world heritage cities of Cienfuegos and Trinidad. And these are just a few of the scheduled stops on the trip itinerary.

“We will be flying non-stop from Miami International Airport on August 30 on a chartered jet.” Said Michael Iacovazzi-Pau, GLI’s Manager of Global Engagement. “One plane has already been filled, but we’ve still got seats left on a second.”
So move quickly if you’re interested in this terrific, limited-time opportunity to visit Cuba.
