Tampa Bay, FL – March 27, 2013 – Dreaming of visiting our neighbors only 90 miles away? Then a trip to Cuba may just be the destination you’re looking for. And, traveling to Cuba is now easier, more affordable and open to anyone who wants to discover the rich culture and heritage of our island neighbor. Friendly Planet is providing 5 to 8 day licensed People to People programs and partnering with Tampa Bay’s Scand-America International, Inc. who exclusively arranges the travel services from Tampa for those programs. They also assist Universities, Medical supply companies and religious organizations with their legal travel arrangements from the U.S. to Cuba.
Scand-America International, Inc. (www.scandamerica.com) has been one of the leading tour operators to and from Scandinavia for the past 21 years. Two years ago they expanded their services to include the Caribbean and Pacific with full and partially chartered themed cruises. Most travellers need to go in groups and be accompanied by an authorized U.S. government licensed operator and follow the OFAC regulations, thus opening up the opportunity to everyone to travel to Cuba.
Scand-America president Ivar Fiskaa states “This is a wonderful opportunity to visit a country that is rich in history, full of diverse cultures, and loaded with natural beauty. Plus, so much of Cuba has been untouched by travelers, it makes the mystique of Cuba very appealing.” Fiskaa goes on to say “Many are not aware of just how friendly the people of Cuba are. They are one of the most educated people in the Caribbean and love to carry on conversations with visitors.”
Scand-America works closely with organizations offering “People to People” programs that are open to any American citizen. Currently this is the only program departing from Tampa, FL that legally enables all Americans to visit Cuba. Starting in May 2013, weekly departures from Tampa to Havana will become available. Whether you are a Cuban American or just interested in Cuban culture, visiting Cuba will be a wonderful experience!
