COVID-19 Update

Condé Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialists 2020


Dear friends,

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. Like many of you, we continue to put off our dreams of traveling a little longer. While Cuba is just beginning to re-open to international travelers, it is still closed to Americans. While we believe comprehensive programs like ours can safely return to the island soon, we’re waiting for the official start date. For now, we have suspended all departures through April 30, 2021. We are hopeful that we can resume at least a limited number of our programs by May 1, 2021, including our popular Weekend in Havana and Classic Cuba programs.

Meanwhile, we are modifying our itineraries to comply with new U.S. restrictions on the accommodations that may be used in Cuba. All guests will now have the pleasure of staying at high quality “casas particulares” (much like B&Bs) run by local residents, which we believe will provide an even richer, more authentic experience of Cuba. These changes are difficult to make during the pandemic, so we have suspended all departures of our Undiscovered Cuba and Legendary Cuba programs until the changes have been finalized. If you are booked on any of these departures, we have already reached out to help reschedule or modify your trip, with no fees or penalties assessed by insightCuba. If we haven't been able to reach you, please contact us.

We’re also making many other positive changes, which we believe are best summed up as: Travel Easy, Travel Safe, Travel Confident.

  • Booking with us is easier than ever. A deposit of just $99 holds your spot, and your balance isn’t due until 60 days prior to departure.
  • We’ve enhanced our health & safety protocols to make our programs as safe as possible. Learn more about how every aspect of your journey will prioritize your safety.
  • And if you need to change your plans—no problem! Just let us know by 60 days before departure, and we can change your booking without any penalty or fees. If you prefer to cancel, we’ll refund everything you’ve paid, less a $99 per-person future travel credit, which can be used towards any future trip and doesn’t expire.

From all of us here at insightCuba, thank you for your patience as we have navigated the turbulent past few months. We continue to do our best to provide the top-notch service you expect, and we apologize if at times you’ve had to wait longer than usual for us to return your calls or emails, or we haven’t always had the answers you hoped for.

The world has changed dramatically, in ways few of us could have imagined just a few months ago. We all want to get back out there again as soon as it’s safe to do so. While we bide our time, so too do our partners and friends in Cuba. Their lives and livelihoods remain on hold. They miss the energy, curiosity, and generosity of American visitors, and they look forward to seeing us again soon, just as we look forward to seeing them.

As always, you can count on us, the Cuba experts, to navigate an ever-changing world and to craft the best and safest legal tours to Cuba. We look forward to seeing you on tour in 2021!

"For half a century the vast majority of Americans have been barred from traveling to Cuba...with insightCuba, visitors interact with ordinary Cubans and get a taste of the forbidden fruit."


The trip was exactly what I was looking for. I liked going to the various schools and museums to get a real feel of the country.
