We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
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.
On this trip we aim to reduce our carbon footprint by localising all places that we visit in the itinerary. This means that all places are within walking distance and fuel powered tranport is seldom necesssary. We even opt for a guided walking tour as opposed to in a vehicle or classic car.
Our homestays make only the amount of food needed per guest, meaning food wastage is low. We can also cater to any dietary requirements with advance notice, inlcuding veganism and vegetariansim, and all food is sourced locally and seasonally, making the meals provided responsible and sustainable.
PeopleEMPLOYMENT, INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY
Over 90% of the people that we employ are not only local to Cuba, but also local to each region of Cuba that we operate in, whether it be Santiago, Havana, Baracoa etc. We create a source of fair income and oppurtunity for those in an underprivileged, and are proud to have a core team comprised primarily of women.
Although we do not have activities or excursions directly linked with LGBTQI+ businesses or locations included in our itinerary, we are LGBTQI+ supporters and encourange and welcome people of all genders and sexualities to join us and learn dance in Cuba.
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 accommodation that we arrange directly benefits locally owned homestays, and we always employ local guides, dancers, musicians and language teachers who are always treated well 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.
