NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After 50 years of being forbidden to visit Cuba, Americans are flocking to the island nation. At the same time, Cuba is experiencing an economic renaissance, resulting in a burgeoning restaurant scene, increased services in the tourism, and an upbeat vibe which is palpable on the streets of Cuba. There has never been a more exciting time for Americans to visit Cuba—and Insight Cuba, the leading provider of U.S.-licensed people-to-people travel to Cuba, is adding one more reason to go now. The company is offering savings up to $300 per person during its Summer Promotion, available on six signature itineraries with 13 departures from June through September.
"Our passengers return home from Cuba constantly commenting on the changes taking place in Cuba and how amazing it is to be able to see Cuba during its transformation," says Tom Popper, president of Insight Cuba. Popper who often travels to Cuba with his daughter during the summer continues, "Summer is my favorite time to visit Cuba. Like many tropical climates, Cuba has fewer tourists during the summer, which translates into more in-depth experiences for our guests, less crowded places, and a more 'tranquilo' atmosphere."
As always, Insight Cuba guests can choose from a selection of six exclusive tours, allowing them to travel when they want, for as long as they want, and at the price they want. The Summer Promotion includes:
