It’s increasingly clear that Cuba is a destination that appeals to the luxury demographic in the United States.
And now there’s another new way to take an authorized luxury trip to the island.
Luxury operator Ker & Downey is now offering customizable private people-to-people journeys to Cuba.
The tours include a private car and driver, along with private visits with renowned Cuban musicians; stays at luxury hotels like the Saratoga and boutique hotels in Old Havana; even the opportunity to learn how to roll a Habano from a native cigar marker.
For the adventure-inclined, one can go bird-watching in Cuba’s wildlands, or try horseback riding in the Viñales Valley, or have dinner with a local family at an organic farm.
“We understand the importance of creating custom journeys that meet each individual traveler’s interest while using local properties, guides and restaurants that have been vetted to meet our clients’ high expectations,” said Ker & Downey President David Marek. “Most importantly, we work to connect travelers with Cuba’s greatest asset, its people, who are eager to share their culture and traditions with the rest of the world.”
According to Ker & Downey, the “Private Tailor-Made Cuba Journeys” vary from around $600 to $1,000 per day per person, based on interests, accommodations and tours.
