Cuba dance holiday


Description from the holiday company

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Cuba dance holiday: the story of this holiday company

As a languages graduate who worked as a tour guide, marketing manager for a languages school and subsequently as a project manager for arts/cultural projects overseas, I always wanted to have my dream job combining my love of meeting people, using my languages and involving travelling with a purpose. I set up the business on the kitchen table in 1995, with a borrowed computer and a fax machine. Very quickly it became apparent that there was a gap in the market for an independent, personal service helping people keen to go abroad to learn languages and to be culturally involved in the local environment. And so the business was born... All these years later we still strongly believe that providing a personal service and knowing what we are talking about is key to making our clients’ trips work for them. Eighteen years on and I still absolutely love what we do! Our range of holidays and trips has diversified hugely since the early years, and we now offer not just language courses overseas but also dance, music, hiking and cultural tours.

Responsible tourism: Cuba dance holiday

Environment

When in Cuba we encourage everyone to learn about the country, the culture of the local people and the places being visited. Our guides hold informal talks to inform about and discuss with them all aspects of local life. This helps to have a better understanding of the area and a deeper appreciation of the people who live there. It is our policy to carefully dispose of all waste whilst we are hiking in national parks.

Community

We encourage everyone to stay in local homes whilst we are on tour so as to be able to communicate with local people, even at a basic level, and to learn something of local life. All our dance/language tutors and specialist guides are local people and they are treated and paid fairly.

We support local Cuban businesses in every aspect of our trips thus contributing directly to the local economy and community, and regularly organise donations for local schools and educational projects.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The most memorable for me was the dancing. Dancing the son with Orlando at the Cultural Centre on the night if the fireworks and the high energy, high speed rueda we did during our lessons and on the street during carnaval.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


I think you get more from the dance classes if you know some salsa before coming. And more from going out in the evenings.If I hadnt been so concerned about the weight of my luggage I would have brought more toiletries etc to leave behind.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes we certainly benefitted the local people through providing work, and being able to give them some of our toiletries etc. It was a great oportunity for us to meet Cuban people and to have some understanding of their lives and for them to
do the same. So there were lots of opportunities for expanding international relations and learning more about each other.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I had an absolutely fantastic time. Our group was so lovely and I am sure we will stay in touch. Our homestay was oerfect. The food exceeded my expectations and our host was perfect.the holiday was very well organised with enough downtime built in. Yaritsa is perfect. Nothing fazed her and she looked
after us like a mother! I do hope I will be able to come again next year.

We are delighted that Sharon enjoyed her trip so much and would agree with all of her comments above. We have tried over the years to ensure that our Cuba dance holidays really do make a positive impact locally by working with local homestay owners, professional dancers and other Cuban based suppliers. Our local tour leader is a wonderful person and is a firm favourite with our clients. Looking forward to Sharon coming out to Santiago de Cuba with us again!
