Special 2019 Complete Cuba Habana
500 Años


This Complete Cuba Habana 500 Años trip is going to be INCREDIBLE! Travel with Complete Cuba to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the founding of Havana. There is no better place in 2019 to celebrate the history of the western hemisphere.

As always, our October small group experience in Cuba will take curious travelers and photographers well beyond the tourist trail of Havana.  This is your chance to dig deeper into Havana than any other group trip offering in the 500th anniversary year of the city! Travel to Havana and visit places travelers typically don't get to experience.  You’ll 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!)  

This trip is truly an inclusive adventure, including airport transfers; six 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.




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. As our past travelers can attest, we make every effort to customize these trips to ensure you have a great experience.
