cuba10Cuba – the heart and soul of the Caribbean as a tourist destination does not need to advertise: climate, unspoiled nature, history and culture, music, dance and people, cars, cigars, security, and more. We offer a two-week stay in the western part of the island where the main focus is cultural and sightseeing attractions, and most importantly the dive.

Our programme is  also a unique opportunity to know Cuba "from the inside", and it's thanks to our resident translator and guide - an expert on Cuban topics.

Currency:

Cuba applies two currencies: the local peso and peso "convertible" - CUC. We use only the second and they are unofficially based on the U.S. dollar. However, another currency you should take is the euro or British pound. In January of 2013 for one euro bought 1.28 CUC at exchange offices. You can also take cash from an ATM.


Safety:
Cuba is a very safe both in terms of crime and health issues. This is one of the last countries where potential criminals fear the police and not the other way around. Medical service is of a high standard which is the pride of the revolution; a large emphasis is placed on prevention activity, control of sanitary containers, preventive spraying against mosquitoes and other pests. It is even permissible to drink tap water! Amoeba and malaria virtually non-existent, nor are there any animals that could do harm to man.
