Cultural Island Travel was licensed by the United States Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to conduct people-to-people travel to Cuba under license number CT-2013-303623-1. We custom design itineraries that are fully compliant with OFAC guidelines such as music and dance performances, artist visits and other activities that fall under the cultural travel guidelines. These tours are open to all Americans and no application process is necessary. We are currently authorized to take any American to Cuba under the general license and our OFAC approved itineraries make sure that your travel is fully legal. People-to-people travel means you will have the chance to meet the local people of Cuba and experience their culture in depth. Cubans are very friendly and passionate and the memories of these interactions make a lasting impression on even the most seasoned travelers.
