Searching for an exciting and authentic adventure this summer? We recommend discovering Cuba by combining our Mi Casa Es Tu Casa tour with a beach stay at the Iberostar Tainos hotel. If you wish to explore Cuba, but wish to experience something more authentic than the large scale resort hotels and major multi-national chains, then the Mi Casa es tu Casa Tour is a superb option.
