About Us



Cuba Cultural Travel began operating tours to Cuba over 15 years ago with a team of two and has since grown in reputation, knowledge, and staff.


Since Cuba Cultural Travel began bringing groups of Americans to Cuba in 1999, our focus has remained the same, Bringing People Together.


We pride ourselves in creating itineraries highlighted by the arts and cultural experiences as well as the best accommodations and restaurants.


Over the years, Cuba Cultural Travel has cultivated numerous relationships with some of the best artists, musicians, and scholars Cuba has to offer.

about our company

California Licensed Seller of Travel

Cuba Cultural Travel is authorized by the United States Treasury Department to operate people to people tours in Cuba. These specialized tours were an effort by the Obama administration to foster understanding between the people of America and Cuba. The itineraries are designed in a way that will encourage interaction and shared experiences.

our team

In addition to the above California-based team, CCT has an experienced and professional off-site team to assist all of our groups on the ground. Some of these individuals are based in the United States while others reside in Cuba.
