Commercial Flights To Havana from U.S. Are Now Available!
Volunteering in Cuba just got even better! U.S. airlines now offer daily commercial flights to Havana from U.S. cities — such as New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Houston, and more. You can also fly from other major cities, such Fort Lauderdale and Miami, to Santa Clara in central Cuba. Flying direct eliminates the need for overnight stays in Miami. Commercial flights also are much more affordable than charter flights. The savings can be as much as $800. Traveling to Cuba is also much more convenient now – no long layovers on most routes! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to work with Cubans on humanitarian projects while supporting the Cuban people, participating in meaningful educational exchanges, and enjoying Cuban culture and hospitality.
Global Volunteers offers volunteer programs in Ciego de Ávila and Havana every month. Our community partners need volunteers to tutor conversational English to youth and young adults, assist a local women’s sewing and knitting group, help upgrade community buildings, and work in community gardens.
Why Global Volunteers and Why Now?
Global Volunteers’ program offers the best travel opportunity for the least amount! You will be engaged in genuine community projects where you work alongside local people, giving you the opportunity to learn from and about them, their lives, their culture, and their hopes and dreams for their future as Cuba enters a new era.
Tax Deductible Fee
The tax-deductible fee for a two-week program is $2, 995; one week is $2, 595. It includes: lodging in casas particulares (B&Bs) in Havana or in a comfortable hotel in Ciego de Ávila, authentic and delicious Cuban cuisine (all meals are included), in-country transportation, emergency evacuation insurance, and an experienced team leader.
Our meaningful educational exchanges through our people-to-people activities will show you even more about this vibrant, legendary island nation!
U.S. government regulations still prohibit any “tourism” or traditional “Free Time” for Americans in Cuba on any program. But we offer something even better than tourism – exhilarating and thought-provoking people-to-people activities including discussions in English with professionals on U.S. and Cuban culture and relations, a walking tour of Old Havana, a visit to Muraleando art project, and a driving tour of Havana in 1950s vintage U.S. cars. In Havana, you can make your own weekend arrangements pursuant to U.S. federal law. Or for an additional fee, we can arrange all your activities on the middle weekend. Read more here.
