Cuba trade mission
Join the National Black Chamber of Commerce on this unique opportunity to discover the many "Faces of Cuba".
Experience a unique social system, government and culture! Meet with entrepreneurs, economists, educators and everyday people while enjoying art, music, history and all that Cuba has to offer. This is a draft itinerary; subject to change.
Please register here https://www.eventville.com/catalog/eventregistration1.asp?eventid=1012017. The registration for the trip is $450.00 per person.
Fly into Havana, using an American carrier makes the experience very simple. Southwest, Jet Blue, Delta etc. fly into Havana. Delta has a direct flight from Atlanta to Havana. Other airlines may fly into FLL or MIA to connect to Havana. FLL is smaller and easier than MIA.
Your airline will supply you with your visa and your health insurance that is required by Cuban law.
When you arrive at the Jose Marti International Airport (HAV) slow your pace. It takes a while to receive your luggage. Get some local currency at the airport-you will need it to pay the cab driver. You can also exchange at hotels. We do not provide airport transportation. Cabs are available at the airport. Hailing a cab at your hotel or at the airport is less expensive for airport transportation but if you would like to prepay with credit card before you leave the US, here are some options:
Round trip Airport package here: https://www.havanaclassiccartour.com/airport/57-airport-round-trip.html
Also, have one way pre-payment options here for pickup: https://www.havanaclassiccartour.com/airport/43-airport-pickup.html
and here for drop off: https://www.havanaclassiccartour.com/airport/48-airport-drop-off.html
Your hotel will likely include breakfast. We do not provide any meals.
Evenings are on your own, see below for suggestions. What has occurred on past trips is that informal groups are formed and plans made jointly for dinner.
You will be on a cash basis. No credit cards issued by American banks are accepted.
AT & T and Verizon phones operate in Havana. You can access email at hotels for a fee of about $10 per hour.
