The many, vibrant cultures of 'Cuba' get the giant/IMAX screen treatment. Here's the exclusive USA Today trailer.


Let's start by saying YES, Americans can legally travel to Cuba, thanks to legislation enacted by President Barack Obama in 2014 and still recognized by the current administration.  And because of the tremendous number of American visitors to the island, Cuba has stepped up their welcoming efforts providing first class accommodations, myriad dining options and guides who provide an insight into the Pearl of the Caribbean.


Going Places International has traveled to Cuba since 2015 and provides an itinerary you won't find elsewhere.  From a cooking class in a local Cuban restaurant, to Salsa classes with one-on-one instruction, our tours stand out from the rest and enable our guests to experience the REAL Cuba.
