Until recently it was nearly impossible for most Americans to visit Cuba. But with the relaxation of several restrictions and a special dispensation for certain types of travel, it is now possible to visit one of our closest neighbors and the Caribbean’s largest island. These dispensations take the form of cultural, religious or humanitarian missions. At Henderson we have formed an alliance with a key strategic travel partner that allows us to create special themed tours to Cuba – incorporating the best of the country and its vibrant way of life! We invite you to experience a trip back through time.
