Listen up! You can hear me effuse about Cuba on Marilyn's podcast

Hola mis amigos!

I was recently a guest on Marilyn Ball's wonderful show "Speaking of Travel," which airs on two radio stations in the U.S. We always have a great time talking about Cuba! It's now available as a podcast on iHeart Radio and Buzzsprout. Here's a link to the latter.

VERY limited space - don't miss out!

Inaugural music & art event is part of the package


I have finally been able to get decent prices for my annual October group trip to Marea del Portillo, Cuba. They are slightly higher than last year but that is partly because I've added a truly special group activity to the trip package - an interactive music and art event at Robertico's Casa de la Música! 

Charismatic local singer Robertico and his popular band will have a variety of instruments available (mostly drums and Cuban percussion instruments) and they'll try to teach us some of the island rhythms. For those who just want to listen to the musical fun, there will be a selection of original artwork on display at the same venue, which happens to be the home of Robertico's mother! 

I've been talking with Robertico about this for close to a year, so I'm quite excited that it's finally happening, and I think you will very much enjoy it. He said his mother will probably prepare some snacks for us too. 

As always, this group package includes a private welcome dinner just for us. The poster shows prices for Marea Hotel rooms and Cabañas. You can purchase the VIP upgrade for 88 CUC once we're at the resort. 

PLEASE NOTE: Space is VERY limited at the resort in October! I've been informed that we need to book this group a.s.a.p. or we may miss out. To book you in, I need your name as it appears on your passport, your date of birth and a $150 deposit payment (credit cards are easiest).
