Malecón, Cuba © 2013 by Jeff Greenwald

Jeff Greenwald reports that the Ethical Traveler trip to Cuba October 13-23 still has two spaces left. But act fast if you want to go; the trip will be closing on August 15th. Here are more details from Jeff:

As you have no doubt heard, Donald Trump has placed new restrictions on travel to Cuba. He’s very concerned with human rights, as you know (unless the perpetrator is Russia, or Saudi Arabia).

I’m happy to announce that his new regulations will barely impact Ethical Traveler’s spectacular—and fully legal—trip to Cuba this October. Some of you already know about it, and the trip is filling up. Our plan is to sidestep Havana (though you can go there for a couple of days before or after) and focus on the eastern side of the island. We’ll start in Santiago, and travel on to some beautiful destinations (including Baracoa and Camaguey) that I’ve never before visited.

If you are thinking of exploring Cuba, this is a terrific opportunity to do so! For one thing, the new rules mean that there will be fewer tourists than usual. For another… well, given the current political climate, who knows what the future holds? Third: The effervescent Malia Everette, founder of Altruvistas and designer of this trip, will be joining us!

As before, the trip will be artist-friendly, building in time for photography, sketching, journal writing, even recording/podcasting if you are so inclined (I will be!). We’ll meet amazing artists, hear wonderful music, and enjoy one of our now-traditional rum-tasting round tables. The trip is very reasonably priced, and there’s even an option to stay either in hotels *or* in casas particulares: home stays with local families.

I know that by now your enthusiasm and curiosity are at full throttle, so here is a link to the trip page. From there, you can download the itinerary and other booking forms. It will be an unforgettable adventure!
