About this trip

The island is easily one of the most unique and interesting destinations to visit in all of Latin America, if not the world. While you may come to Cuba looking for answers you're more than likely to return home with even more questions. With a complex history from pre-colonial times all the way up to the present day global political climate and economic situation, Cuba is history and poly sci buff's paradise. Not only that, but Cuba's vibrant culture is also reflected in its art, music, dance, food, drink, and overall ambiance felt as you cruise the streets of la Habana Vieja or spend a leisurely afternoon smoking a cigar on a family-run tobacco farm in Viñales Valley.


You can read the full itinerary for our February trip here!


Our Cuba tours immediately immerse you into everyday life in Cuba as you settle into your "casa particular" owned and run by a Cuban family. From there you will jump into learning about Cuba's historic and cultural past and present while traveling throughout both urban and rural Cuba. Our in-country host families, local guides, and drivers are all friendly, warm, and excited to share the real Cuba with you!

The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.

Prompt service. Excellent driver and comfortable ride. Heart of Travel made my arrival from Guatemala City to Antigua very enjoyable. I would highly recommend their services.
This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP
Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.

Fun, Fun, Fun! We traveled with The Heart of Travel, our favorite for Spanish-speaking destinations. We had a perfect mix of history, culture, learning, sharing, and food and drink. Día de los Muertos at the cemetery was very special. Our accommodation at an AirB&B was perfect for our group. Our local guide, Gabo, and Heart of Travel guide, Ana, are the best.

This was the best trip to Mexico we have ever been on. If you didn't go to Puerto Escondido as an add on, you missed a very relaxing 4 night side trip, to a very friendly small town.
