Everything You Need To Know Before Traveling to Cuba

Working with an expert can unlock the magic of Cuba.  Come along on our recent scouting adventure. 

Cuba is famously known for its cigars, salsa dancing and delicious rum, but to safely enjoy the history and unique experiences the island nation has to offer, we recommend working with an expert.

Cuba is a great example of a destination that requires careful planning because there are limited ways to visit Cuba as a US citizen. “By working with the right partner, we can get you there under the ‘Support For The Cuban People’ visa which requires the right paperwork and know-how,” says Molly Mathis, CEO and Chief Experience Creator of MOJO Adventures.

Traveling across borders can be stressful and confusing especially when you aren’t familiar with the area. “We arrange for a personal, VIP representative to meet you at the gate and whisk you through customs without having to wait in line and negotiate potential immigration complications. This helps take the stress off your shoulders from the get-go upon landing,” says Molly.

In addition to navigating the travel visa and paperwork, a trusted partner provides peace of mind. “When we customize your Cuban adventure, we connect you to true local experts who unlock special insider access to activities and programs you wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience.” 

We pride ourselves in giving clients authentic insight into the destination’s culture and history. Here are some highlights from our recent scouting trip to Cuba, with adventures making us feel like we were transported back in time.

  1. Private Rum Tasting and Cigar Pairing Workshop with the Head Sommelier of Havana Club Rum
      1. We learned about the rum production in Cuba and paired different spirits with top-shelf cigars.
  2. Private salsa lessons at one the oldest salsa schools in the Americas. 
  3. Professional photo shoot with classic convertible cars. Cuba is basically a living museum for classic cars. We felt like we were transported back in time being chased by paparazzi on this memorable afternoon. Most importantly, the scenery on our drive was breathtaking!

“This is not a typical destination where you want to show up and wing it. A guided expert and personal driver helped us truly unlock the magic of Cuba safely,” says Molly.

All-in-all, Cuba is a cultural destination not to miss, if you plan it right! 

Pro Tip: Houston, Miami and New York all have direct flights to Cuba making it an easy weekend trip!
