BYOG - Pick your own dates for an "Incomparable Cuba" group road trip!


After much consideration, I have decided to postpone the bus tour of "Incomparable Cuba" that was originally scheduled for Jan. 4-15, 2016. 

However, I am now able to offer a new option for this tour: BYOG. Yup, if you guessed that stands for Bring Your Own Group, you're correct. Round up a dozen of your friends and the road trip is on! 

Please contact me 3-4 months (or more) in advance to discuss dates and confirm hotel availability and prices. I will certainly do my best to keep the rates similar to those previously advertised for the Jan. 4-15 tour; unfortunately, costs are climbing, especially in the "high season," which is November to April in Cuba.

As well, we may have to use different hotels than the original literature notes, depending on what is available for the dates your group wishes to travel. But, if I am working with a smaller group (12-ish), we may have more flexibility regarding accommodation options.

The revised "Incomparable Cuba" poster is below. For tour agenda details, please scroll down to the post entitled: "Road trip! Let's tour Cuba together..." 

I'm looking forward to another road trip in Cuba!

Something magical seems to happen

It happened again.

Every time I lead a group to Club Amigo Marea del Portillo, a lovely little resort in southern Cuba, I return home thinking that this was the best group ever. How could it be possible to have a nicer bunch of people to hang out with? Then it happens. The next trip seems to magically surpass the last. 

The most recent group was made up of an interesting mixture of people, including many repeaters, who travel with me regularly, and numerous newbies. Some folks just wanted to relax and read while others were keen for adventure but we all got along well and, I think it's safe to say, everyone had a great time.

I lead groups to my beloved Marea del Portillo twice annually and the next trip is tentatively scheduled for April 2016. Will the Marea magic continue? I think so!

Meanwhile, if you want to see some photos of the October 2015 "Posse Trip," find me or my group page, JennicaCuba, on Facebook. I've posted about 15 thematic albums, as well as a little video, which is a compilation of some general scenic photos. Here's a link to the latter:  2015 October - Marea del Portillo, Cuba

Loving the magic,
