Salsaville's Thanksgiving Music & Dance Tour in Cuba:
November 18th - December 3rd, 2016

This trip is now SOLD OUT.

For the November trip (with future trips very similiar in details):

There are two options:

1. Havana and Santiago: Leave Friday, November 18th and return Saturday, December 3rd

2. Havana only: Leave Friday, November 18th and return Sunday, November 27th

I do recommend the first and longer option, as you will get to see much more and experience the "other half" of Cuba - Santiago. However, if your schedule simply does not allow you to be gone for two weeks, then I do recommend coming with us to see Havana, where we will still have an extremely good view of Cuba and its music & dance culture.

We will fly to Santiago on Sunday, November 27th. Or, we may instead take a road-trip to Santiago which will involve 1 or 2 nights spent in interesting locations between Havana and Santiago.

Salsaville's epic two-week Music & Dance Tour of Cuba - Havana and Santiago de Cuba

Exploring Cuban Music & Dance in Havana and Santiago de Cuba

This trip will be run under a legal people-to-people educational license for travel in Cuba.

The group size will be limited to 14 travelers, but may not be more than 9 people.
Please note that this will be run as a "boutique" tour, meaning that the group size will kept small, each member of the trip will receive individual attention, and the tour can be somewhat customized to your desires & interests. In addition, we are staying in upscale accommodations, but as a home-stay, not in a hotel. The group will be able to move around more efficiently and do more than a larger group could. This way we can all achieve my goal of making sure that each person has an amazing experience.

Included in the package price is:

Basic Travel:

Music & Dance Activities:

Additional activities:

Professional photographer:

The only things that are not included in the package price and you should bring money for are:

Trip cost:

Payment schedule is as follows:

If you need to cancel for whatever reason, I'm afraid none of the payments are refundable, except for a partial refund if we can find a replacement traveler and transfer the plane tickets into their name.
