Cuba – Beyond Havana
The rhythms and nature of Cuba!
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Award-winning experiential tour operator Myths and Mountains, known for its culturally immersive itineraries, recently began offering tours to Cuba - the newest addition to Myths and Mountain’s international destinations. Their expanded exploration of one of the world’s most sought-after island destinations allows guests to experience the many faces of Cuban culture and people. Immerse yourself in the colorful arts, addictive music, complicated history and the many flavors of Cuban cuisine – a vibrant kaleidoscope of diverse lifestyles. http://mythsandmountains.com/trip/new-cuba-beyond-havana-the-rhythms-and-nature-of-cuba/
What sets Myths’ itineraries apart is its intimate group size – averaging four to six people compared to the average group size of an astounding 44 people per tour bus usually found on the island. This allows them to create a much more personalized tour with cultural interactions and art experts – even organic farmers and ice-cream makers!
Their “Insider’s Tips” will enhance the experience of travelers:
- When photographing the friendly people, you may find some folks in Havana who dress up for photos might ask for tips.
- Limits on purchases of rum and cigars require you keep receipts and adhere to the laws
- Souvenirs from Cuba are limited; suggestions for purchases include colorful art work, clothing and hats similar to “Panama Hats”
- A Cuban fixed menu typically includes a freshly made mojito cocktail, a generous mix of flavorful dishes, bread and flan for dessert. Finish the meal with a strong Cuban coffee served in a small cup for a true international experience
Cuba is just 90 miles and a 45-minute flight from Florida, but it feels like a country stuck in another era. For the best, most personal experience, book with Myths and Mountains who will show you the true Cuba – beyond Havana!
