To journey to Cuba is to step back in time. Its half-century economic embargo has left the developing island nation seemingly frozen in time, its isolation keeping the mid-century vintage style as the everyday for decades. Not much has changed since the United States embargo against Cuba began in 1959. You’ll still find classic cars on the streets and a charm that’s both refreshing and fascinating. Luxury travel to Cuba reveals a striking and romantic setting with a little grit, but the true exclusivity here is the access to natural areas, sleepy cities, and an eclectic population, all on the cusp of watching the tourist flood gates finally open from the United States.

The possibilities for development that are on the horizon in this once-shunned destination have led the travel industry to collectively beat the drum with a singular message: “go to Cuba and beat the rush!” Its colorful buildings and cobblestone streets may one day get a facelift, and its well-preserved colonial towns may soon see an increase in traffic. Whatever the future holds for Cuba in the way of modernization and tourism, our travelers will always experience the true spirit of this destination in an intimate and personalized people-to-people setting, just as they do anywhere else in the world when traveling with Ker & Downey.

Stateside luxury travelers looking for an authentic experience in Cuba will be able to interact with the true heartbeat of the country – its people. Isolation has fostered an unshakable sense of community and a culture that has evolved organically with little outside influence. Cubans are eager to share their simple pleasures with a smile, celebrating life through hearty home-cooking, vibrant jazz music, hand-rolled cigars, and the excitement of a game of baseball.
