Notes

The “Cuba’s People, Culture & Colonial Cities" program requires walking on cobblestone streets and uneven pathways, climbing stairs, and participating in a full-time schedule of Support for the Cuban People activities. Due to the special requirements to visit Cuba, participants will be required to complete and sign a travel affidavit confirming that they are traveling under the Support for the Cuban People category and will participate in a full-time schedule of activities. Participants are also required to send a color copy of their passport valid photo page (passports must be valid 6 months from the last date of travel). These items must be sent to Globus within 7 days of making a reservation.In Cuba, activities that have been scheduled far in advance can sometimes become unavailable for a number of different reasons. The purpose of the trip is to have meaningful interactions with the locals and if the planned Support for the Cuban People activity isn’t available, rest assured that another that will be just as enriching will be substituted.
