GOOD THINGS TO KNOW

Americans traveling to Cuba: will we have any free time?

No worries—you most definitely will. Our “P2P” itinerary will generally occupy the daytime hours of 9-5 pm for guided cultural experiences. You will have the early morning hours to run, bike or just relax, as well as the evening hours after 5 pm to do the same.

If you ever wanted to experience one of the legendary Cuban discotecas, this is your chance! There are plenty of bars and discotecas for dancing, and many other shops and places you can check out too if you wish during your free time.
