Ker & Downey’s luxury Cuba tour is a people-to-people trip that takes a social journey into the soul of the island nation through the handiwork and talents of its people.
Cuba has suddenly jumped to the top of many travel lists as the must-go destination of 2015. The historic re-opening of the embassy, initiation of trade, and eased travel restrictions have international significance in all sectors. At Ker & Downey, we’re excited about the rare opportunity to explore another culture in its purist form, reaching the shores of Cuba before globalization takes hold.
Experts believe that business in Cuba will remain unappealing to major chains and international corporations for some time, due to the deep grip of the communist government on the market. Bad news for Starbucks is great news for those wishing to sip a cup of authentic Cuban joe in a quaint little “mom and pop” place.
It’s also good news for Cuban artisans, as their work will be of the most interest to the initial waves of visitors. They can enjoy increased demand without competition from international retailers or tourism infrastructure. These warm and engaging people are themselves the main reason to go to Cuba.
Ker & Downey’s people-to-people trip allows us to take a social journey in to the soul of the island nation through the handiwork and talents of its people.
Every trip to Cuba is an adventure. With Ker & Downey, that adventure will open Cuba in way completely unique to this moment and time, leaving an indelible impression on all who join us.
