CAPTIVATING CUBA

We create completely tailored, flexible special journeys through Cuba and beyond, and are totally focused on providing unique experiences for our customers.

Captivating Cuba is a totally independent and fully ATOL bonded boutique specialist tour operator, with more than 25 years’ experience providing high-quality tailormade travel to Cuba and beyond. Our offices are based in Hertfordshire, UK and we also have staff based in France and Spain, as well as a sizeable office in Havana and staff throughout Cuba.

Our friendly, experienced and approachable travel designers are passionate about providing authentic journeys throughout Cuba packed with personality and soul, and we really do care that your holiday with us is special. 

We have all been to Cuba, experienced our recommendations, and travelled around, and are here to make sure that your journey through the island is meticulously planned and skilfully delivered. Our team have tons of think-outside-the-box creative ideas to make every holiday completely individual, plus we really listen to our customers and focus on the little details that are important to you.

We are extremely proud of our long-serving, highly-experienced and friendly team throughout Cuba. They support our customers around the clock, and are our heroes!  Our philosophy remains to ensure all our staff have a fun and caring work environment, and we love that our staff bring their personalities to work.

We are very active supporting local business and community projects, and maintain great relationships with our suppliers and contacts in the government, business and private sectors, who we have mostly known for many years.

We are experienced and large enough to have our own Havana office and staff throughout Cuba, but we are small enough to know our customers and travel agents individually by name, and spend time on each booking fine tuning the details and adding our special touches. We are very lucky to receive our business mainly through word of mouth recommendations, and repeat business from the fantastic independent travel agents who work with us.

Aside from knowing Cuba inside-out, our travel designers have also travelled extensively around nearby Caribbean islands, Central America, the USA and further afield allowing us to combine your Cuba holiday with another destination if you so wish.

About your Holidays with Captivating Cuba™

We create completely tailored, flexible special journeys through Cuba and beyond, and are totally focused on providing unique experiences for our customers, whilst supporting and valuing Cuban people, community projects and of course our staff and suppliers. We have personally tried and tested our hand-picked recommendations, and have drawn on our experience to create truly unique travel options for our guests.

We operate based upon genuine, honest advice with no pushy sales techniques or pressure to book as we would rather get things exactly right for you. We will always let you know what will work well for you and what doesn’t.

We are totally independent and un-biased when selecting our suppliers, and also have access to booking just about anything in Cuba!  We have our own office in Havana, and our own staff throughout Cuba.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, we can help with all your arrangements and are happy to quote in a variety of currencies. We can also help if you want to combine your Cuban adventure with another destination, just ask!

If you are torn between staying in Cuba or cruising around Cuba, why not do both!  With our range of sailing and cruise options we can combine the best of both worlds so you don’t miss out.

For those who are less confident about conquering Cuba alone, check out our hand-crafted, high-quality fully escorted tours led by an English-speaking guide which include your meals and a jam-packed itinerary. Or if you love the itinerary, but prefer it on a private basis we can mirror the itinerary on any day of the week, just for you.

We handle all special interest travel no matter how diverse. From family adventures, weddings and honeymoons, car rallies and salsa tours to fashion shows, painting holidays and VIP private travel, in the last 25 years there is nothing we haven’t been asked for, but we love a challenge!

If you are celebrating a special occasion or event, we can help you wow your audience with our hand-made experiences and celebration ideas, or if you have a dream of your own we will make it happen!  We just love helping our guests tick off their bucket list and create once in a lifetime-opportunities. We know our products intimately and are passionate about the holidays and experiences we create for our customers!

Why Go to Cuba?

Whatever your reason for travel, from diving, sailing or adventure, to immersing yourself in a totally different culture, Cuba is the ultimate choice.

Situated just 90 miles south of the Florida Keys, Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean. With hundreds of miles of golden sandy beaches, rich and colourful scenery and a proud cultural heritage, this stunningly beautiful and exceptionally diverse country has been enticing visitors since Christopher Columbus landed here in 1492.

Whatever your reason for travel, from diving, sailing or adventure, to immersing yourself in a totally different culture, Cuba is the ultimate choice. The island’s wonderfully varied landscapes and huge range of choices allow us to craft fantastic personalised journeys.

The Cuban people are very friendly, genuine and welcoming, the beaches are amazing and the mountains and countryside are awe inspiring. You will see and do things you cannot experience anywhere else in the world and you will never forget your Cuban adventure. During your holiday, you can visit historical cities, climb mountains, meet with warm and friendly locals, stay with local families, eat in fantastic secret and hidden away restaurants, watch world class ballet, dance the night away, bike through stunning rainforests, sail to desert islands, zip wire through the trees, and much more!

Hard to believe it is already 2 weeks since we returned from our amazing adventure in Cuba.  We are still basking in memories of the beautiful country, warm, hospitable people, and the cultural adventure of a lifetime!

Thank you for seeing to it that every detail was thought through.  We absolutely love Anay and Enrique (and our driver Enzo sp?) and greatly appreciate their introduction to both the touristic Cuba and the “real” Cuba.  The May Day parade was quite something — so happy we were there for that.  The Casas were gorgeous and Hotel Moka was a very special experience.  Though it may be awhile before I drink another Cuba Libre or Mojito, I truly enjoyed every moment.

I highly recommend Cuba and your services to anyone interested in making the trip.

Thank you again!

Warmly,

Annette

I thought that I would drop you a line to thank you and the team at Captivating Cuba for organising our trip to Cuba.

We had a great time in both Havana and Guardalavaca and the transfers were seamless. The Casa Vitrales in Havana was brilliant. The accomodation was clean and the staff ultra friendly (genuinely) and helpful. The Paladars that were booked for us were excellent and the quality of food far exceeded our expectation.We were treated to a slice of real life Habana.

The total contrast of Rio Do Ora was most welcome with good accomodation, amazing staff and an amazing beach. What a place to chill!

Thanks once again.

See you soon.

Can’t believe we have been home a week already but that’s the way life rolls.

Just wanted to say thank you to YOU for helping us with our holiday to Cuba. The whole holiday was amazing.

Flight good. Hotels were superb. Private transfers are the way to go!! The Parque Central in Havana was first class. The Grand Trinidad Hotel, we feel, was above and beyond first class. The Melia Las Americas was as good as any Good AI that we have stayed in. Although I had to get over the first two amazing hotels, relax & then settle into the AI routine and scene!

We have to give total high praise to The Captivating Cuba Reps: Sonia, Juan Carlos & Maria.  Their experience, knowledge, helpfulness and kindness whilst we were in Cuba only added to the fantastic holiday experience. Please pass our Thanks on to them.

Sam you were kind enough to ensure that all the hotels knew we were celebrating our special wedding anniversary and they all marked this occasion in some way for us – it was lovely but we also truly appreciated the Bottle of Bubbles we received from yourselves at AWWT as well.

Million Thank you’s……

Kind regards
