ATLANTA, Ga. – November 10, 2015 – Vacation Express has officially launched their Cuba dedicated website, with full booking capabilities for people who would like to travel to Cuba legally. In addition to information about the destination and how Americans can travel there legally, offers two options to see Cuba in 2016.

 As part of the largest provider of travelers to Cuba, Sunwing Travel Group, Vacation Express is one of very few U.S. tour operators to offer a hotel lineup in six Cuban cities: Havana, Varadero, Cayo Coco, Cayo Santa Maria, Holguin and Santiago de Cuba. The hotel options are for people traveling to Cuba under one of the twelve general licenses, for example visiting family, journalistic or educational activities. The convenience of being able to book a hotel in Cuba through Vacation Express allows travelers to pay with a U.S. credit card. Interested? See the hotels currently available at their Cuba specific website, or by calling their Cuba travel advisors at (866)790-1788.

Through the purchasing power of Sunwing Travel Group, Vacation Express will also have inventory in the much sought after capital of Cuba, Havana for arrivals May 1st, 2016 onwards. Hotels offered include properties managed by a company affiliated with Vacation Express such as Royalton, Memories and Starfish. Other popular brands in Cuba, well recognized by seasoned travelers, include Melia, Paradisus and Iberostar.

 Another option for travelers interested in visiting Cuba is escorted people-to-people tours which fall under one of the twelve general licenses.  An experienced and licensed bilingual tour guide will take travelers through a historical and interactive experience. Included are the services of the guide, all experiences and interactions, including entrance fees, as well as roundtrip charter flights from Miami to Havana, hotel stay, all transportation and most meals. These robust, well curated itineraries offer travelers a unique, engaging gaze into the past, present and future of Cuba. Meet with students and scholars to learn how the famed colonial buildings in Havana are restored, speak to an urban farmers’ collective to learn about organic agriculture and learn first-hand from tobacco farmers about the world-class, time-honored tradition of hand rolling cigars.

If you’re interested in traveling to Cuba, now is the time!  The demand for this destination, a short one hour flight from Miami, continues to grow, and the famed Cuba that many refer to as the closest thing to time travel is destined to change.  For people wanting to see “vintage Cuba,” Vacation Express’ 5 and 7-night people-to-people tours, which are spent entirely on the island, are competitively priced, and are available to book now for travel in 2016, either online at or by phone with one of our Cuba travel advisors at (866)790-1788.
