Small Group Option



People to People and Research Travel to Cuba


To inquire about organizing a trip please fill out the application on our application page.  All tours are partially tax deductible and help support Green Cities’ “Planting Seeds” and Palma Soriano river restoration projects in Cuba. Specialized ecological tours are also available through our Eco Cuba Network.

Although Green Cities Fund has long been licensed by the United States Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control to organize and promote “people to people” travel to Cuba,  U.S. Citizens are now free to travel to Cuba under a “General License” without Treasury Department pre-approval as long as they certify they are engaged in “people to people” travel. Click here for a recent New York Times summary of the new rules, which make Cuba travel much easier.
With decades of experience in organizing travel to Cuba, our staff specializes in custom tours for up to six people.  Complete the application, indicating any special interests, and we will contact you to discuss a personalized professional research or people to people visit. Once you have decided to proceed with a Green Cities customized visit, we ask an initial deposit/donation of $500, which is tax deductible and enables us to proceed with reservations and specific planning.  Prices quoted do not include the cost of travel to Cuba, but we can refer you to experienced travel agents who will help you find the best among a growing number of alternatives.
We also cater to specialized individual and group tours for research purposes under a “General License” where participants will engage in full time non-profit research in their area of expertise.

From a pleased private tour guest on her first trip to Cuba:  *
“We had such a FABULOUS trip to Cuba.  Thank you so very much for your guidance and for introducing me to Sandra, my new best friend.  She made our trip so easy and smooth…. full service all the way.  It was a fascinating experience, can’t wait to go again and also to send my friends.”
With gratitude,
Melissa

* We will provide a complete custom itinerary and budget in advance for your approval, based upon your particular needs.  Prices are often far less than large group tours.
Please note that Cuban law requires purchase of medical insurance while in the country (a few dollars a day) and that we cannot provide guarantees
as to room and travel cancellations, so it’s best to buy travel insurance, and to travel with flexibility, and a sense of humor and openness to new and unexpected
experiences.  While we do our best, if your car breaks down, don’t fume, make new friends.  Travelers assume full liability.
