Responsible tourism: Cuba salsa 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?


Oh, there were lots - loved meeting all the other travellers, and our dance teachers, and of course the dancing. I think the female teachers especially had huge patience with us! Exploring Santiago was wonderful - usual I seek out quiet peaceful places, which Santiago IS NOT - but I loved it and will return :-)

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


Relax and enjoy - pack lots of thin clothes to keep yourself cool - a three hour dance class in temps of 25-30C is challenging! If you want, take lots of pens, pencils, notebooks to give away to the kids, but overall come with an open mind and heart.

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


Hugely supported local people - our teachers were all local professional teachers who gained income directly from our visit; likewise, the homestays.

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


Fabulous - loved Cuba, my first visit, but I will be back, and might even do this trip again - many of the others were return visitors.

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!
