Experience the Real Cuba

About Us

“Cuba has so much to offer and we got a great taste of it all thanks to your planning.”

“We had a smooth trip and many amazing memories, thanks in large part to Rena.”

Hi, I’m Rena. I’ve been arranging Cuban cultural programs and holidays in Cuba for many years and I can offer you a trip quite unlike any other in the world.

Experience the Real Cuba is a family organisation that works hard to provide travellers to Cuba with an incredible local experience in the country. We can offer you an authentic taste of Cuban life, full of music and laughter with new friends, in a place where the sun is always shining.

My local knowledge and contacts in Cuba allow me to organise accommodation in trusted, family-run guest houses, or “casa particulares” and to enhance your stay, we also offer a variety of cultural activities for you to enjoy, such as:

I’m open to ideas and if there’s another activity you’d like to try in Cuba, I will try and arrange it for you.

Through these educational programs and the family-based accommodation, I can help you discover the language and culture of the Cuban people. In my experience, by the time you leave the country, you’ll have a brand new family and social life in Cuba and you’ll already be planning your return trip.

Are you ready to escape the office and spend a few weeks relaxing in an ambient, colonial Cuban town, flanked by white Caribbean beaches and sparkling blue sea? Then let us help you. The only part you’ll need to do independently is organise your flight, travel insurance and tourist visa. From the moment you step into Cuba, we’ll organise the rest; accommodation and activities.
