March 2019 Havana + Isle of Youth
(Just returned!)

Details about our recently completed March trip and private tours are below.



As always, our March small group experience in Cuba will take curious travelers and photographers well beyond the tourist trail of Havana-only trips.  This is your chance to travel to Havana and the secluded Isle of Youth and visit places travelers typically don't get to experience.  You’ll also have the time to immerse yourself in all that Havana has to offer.

Join Complete Cuba for a well-researched and truly unique travel adventure beyond the cliches.  You will leave with memories, experiences, and photographs you simply can't have on your own.  (Many of which we don't advertise so as to keep them exclusive and ensure your trip is as vibrant and exciting as Cuba itself!)  

Included are airfare from Miami to and from Cuba; airport transfers; five nights of hotel/casa accommodations; the services of an English-speaking Cuban guide; at least one and often two American guides; private, air-conditioned transportation to included activities within Cuba; special photography opportunities; nearly all meals (including tips); your visa; necessary documentation; health insurance while in Cuba; and much more.

Please note that travelers should plan on arriving in Miami on Friday, March 15 for what is expected to be an early morning flight Saturday.  (We will provide our recommended hotel to registered travelers.)  We will fly back from Cuba on March 21st.



Solo travelers are always welcome in our group trips; Approximately half of our guests are solo travelers.  (For the few meals not included, we arrange group reservations so solo travelers only dine alone if they want.)

In addition to boutique travel experiences offered by Complete Cuba, this trip will offer specific amenities not available elsewhere, including optional activities and photo opportunities taking into account the results of a pre-trip survey of the trip participants.

100% of our past travelers say they would recommend travel with Complete Cuba.  (Check out our testimonial page.)

Dan Tamarkin of Tamarkin Camera will travel with the group and provide Leica gear available for loan during the trip, guidance on using the gear as well as photography in Cuba, guide specific photo opportunities and people-to-people interactions, and offer one-on-one portfolio review during the trip (if you’re interested).

Complete Cuba trips are designed to satisfy the U.S. Department of Treasury requirements for travel to Cuba.  We provide background materials, a packing list, and more to ensure you’re prepared to travel to Cuba comfortably, safely, and easily.  You come to Miami, and we handle the rest.    

Private trip offerings will continue to be available.  To request more information, please sign up for the email list now or submit an information request on the Sign Up page.

A private visit with famed professional photographer Roberto Salas in his home and gallery in Havana;

A visit to the home and studio of José Fuster, the “Picasso of the Caribbean”; 

UNESCO World Heritage sites, including a guided walking tour of Old Havana and others;

After experiencing the Old Havana you’ve seen on TV and movies, we’ll go beyond it to explore modern Havana far from the tour buses;

Cuban music;

Cuban Art; and, most of all,

Exchanges with Cuban People
