Travel to Cuba: “Our trip with Cultural Cuba was extremely well-organized. We enjoyed exciting and interesting venues. The staff involved made us feel that we were not tourists, pointing out aspects of Cuba and Cuban life that others would not get to see or experience. Overall, a fantastic first-class experience and one that I would recommend without reservation!”

Dear Prospective Traveler,

As an entrepreneur, I am a capitalist at my core. I’ve traveled the world and although the U.S. has its flaws, the freedom to operate legal businesses and the opportunities to achieve success without limits makes the democracy of the United States the greatest in the world. In the past several years, contact with Americans has helped the Cuban people see this, too. The Cubans love our way of life and the more time they spend in contact with Americans, the more these seeds of change grow within their society. Isolation is not the answer.

Please note that any trips to Cuba that are planned and deposited or already paid for are exempt from any possible future restrictions. The US government must announce the policy (not just pronounced intentions), then define it, and then communicate a timeline.Once the trip is booked, it will be grandfathered in and no matter what happens to the USA travel policy, all booked trips will not be affected.
We recommend anyone interested in or thinking about visiting and enjoying the dynamic and beautiful culture and people of Cuba, reserve their trip now, while the opportunity to visit remains open.
Cultural Cuba promises to refund any deposit on travel if in fact the US government states you cannot travel on the dates you have booked.

We look forward to providing you with an enriching and enjoyable trip to Cuba.

David Lee

Founder of Cultural Cuba

Step in to EL TALLER EXPERIMENTAL DE GRAFICA, a community-based Graphic Arts Studio. Printmaking is an important traditional art form in Cuba, and the studio has helped preserve it, turning out etchings, lithographs, collagraphs, and woodcuts since 1962. You can talk with the artists as they work, and there is a gallery and small shop on the second floor.


“Cuba is unexpectedly beautiful and complex. David has amazing relationships in Havana and the best, most “cut through the BS” guide I’ve ever encountered. I’m already thinking about when I can go next. Bravo, David.”

“We first reached out to Cultural Cuba with pretty short notice for a completely private couples trip. Owner and Founder David Lee was willing to make happen, but we ultimately decided to go on one of his pre-arranged small group trips that he invited us on to help us make it happen (for cost). Our five-day trip was a completely effortless vacation! I barely had to lift a finger to plan but was able to get everything I wanted, and things I didn’t know I wanted, out of the trip. We came home feeling very excited about Cuba and rejuvenated as if we’d been on a longer vacation. Perfect balance of activities and downtime. I can’t even think of anything else I’d had wanted to do had we had more time If you’re looking to go to Cuba, go now! And go with Cultural Cuba. Best decision we made in 2015.” – Kayla Wagner

“First, Cuba is worth seeing and sooner rather than later. The art, music, and dance scenes, as well as the food and hotels all exceeded our expectations – by far. How you see Cuba is just as important and Cultural Cuba provided an almost unbelievably well-orchestrated experience. Everything was beautifully taken care of -which we would have expected, but David’s own immersion in the country allowed flexibility and provided very special visits to venues and presentations unmatched by tours taken by other friends with other groups. So glad we went with Cultural Cuba and cannot imagine visiting Cuba with anyone else.”

“Our trip to Cuba with Cultural Cuba shattered our lofty expectations. It provided a perfect balance of structured itinerary and flexibility making it seem like we were immersed in Cuban culture and history while at the same time feeling like we were on vacation. In addition to the first class accommodations, every experience felt exclusive and VIP making the trip truly memorable.”

Bob Davidowitz

“David knows Cuba, and he knows his clients. Put them together, and it’s a trip done right.”

“What a fantastic trip . . . the right blend of cuisine, cigars, aged rum, music, and sightseeing, your team immersed us head first into the Cuban culture.”

“If looking to take a trip to Cuba you couldn’t pick a better organizer and guide than David Lee of Cultural Cuba. From enjoying things off the beaten track to always feeling comfortable and safe, Cultural Cuba plays an integral role in making your trip as special as possible. Without a doubt there isn’t a better guide to have put your dream trip together.”

Peter Billenmeyer

“David Lee has such vast knowledge of Cuba plus his effortless attention to every detail provides an absolutely fascinating experience that keeps one in awe for the entire trip. The staff at Cultural Cuba even managed to arrange a few surprises that had everyone saying, “Wow! Are you kidding me?!” Thank you for giving my daughter and me an incredible memory. We both agree it was the best trip ever. Five Stars!”

“The best way to do Cuba is with a small, private group led by a knowledgeable and experienced host, like David Lee and Cultural Cuba. David created a customized itinerary that maximized our time in Cuba and highlighted our personal interests: rum, cigars, local art, and history. The private guide and driver he arranged for us were both outstanding and I cannot imagine exploring the Cuba any other way.  Even though Cuba is a Caribbean island and there are beautiful beaches, it is not a leisure travel destination. It’s a destination for the culturally curious.”
