Tom Popper

President

Tom believes that traveling touches a special place in each of us. The discovery of a new destination and the exploration of a different culture, but most of all its interactions with the local people that provide the memories we cherish forever. 

A quintessential voyager, Tom’s traveled to more than thirty countries in five continents, and has been to Cuba at least that many times.

After insightCuba's founding in 2000, Tom became its president in 2002. “Cuba is an easy place to fall in love with. It has an incredible rhythm and warmth that is accessible and approachable-- it leaves you wanting more.” says Tom about a country he easily calls his second home. Under his leadership, insightCuba became the largest and most innovative provider of people to people travel to Cuba. 

As a leading expert in U.S.-Cuba policy and travel to Cuba, Tom has been interviewed by hundreds of newspapers and travel magazines including the New York Times, Miami Herald, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Conde Nast Traveler, The New Yorker and more. He's also been featured on CNN, MSNBC, National Public Radio and radio stations nationwide.
