Commercial airlines also provide the Cuba Tourist Visa for an additional charge, available for purchase at the final departure airport from the USA.
Commercial Flights to Cuban Cities Outside of Havana
Cuba has 10 international airports. In addition to Havana, US airlines offer service to: Varadero, Santa Clara, Camaguey, Holguin, and Santiago de Cuba. The last two are perfect for our trips in the eastern part of the island.
Our scheduled or custom tours indicate the starting point of each tour. If you choose to fly in or out of a different city than that of the tour origin, you will be responsible for providing your own transporation to the tour's meeting point.
Flying through a Gateway Country
It is perfectly legal to fly from th USA to another country and then on to Cuba. Options include flights from Mexico, Panama, Canada, or the Bahamas. Copa Airlines and Aeromexico are airlines sometimes used by our guests to travel to Cuba.
Cuba Travel Visas can be obtained at each gateway country for an additional cost that is generally less than the amount paid in the USA.
Reserving your Accommodations
If you are arriving early to Cuba or staying after your Cuba Unbound tour, it is important to secure your accommodations ahead of time. Many casas particulares (bed & breakfasts) are available via AirBNB, and other websites, most in the $25-$60/night range.
Booking on AirBnb allows for advance credit card payment, minimizing the cash you'll need to carry with you.
