Encompass Tours 2018

Sadly Encompass Tours is no longer able to run tours in Cuba but would like to remind our friends and fellow travellers that we remain active and available for help and information.

We are regular visitors to Cuba and have partners in Havana who are able to help provide us with current information.  We can assist in making reservations and bookings for hotels, casas, taxis etc and can organise transport to and from the airport for arrivals and departures in Havana only.

 

Havana City Break! New for 2015

You choose your transport!

You choose your transport!

Kay and Guillermo enjoyed their Easter weekend city break in a beautiful old American car!

An action packed weekend was complete with sun, sand, rum, music and art. Fine cigars were smoked, vegan food was on the menu too for Kay. The benefits of free enterprise ensured a choice of restaurants are now available to cater to special diets.

Our choice of BnB accomodation in a casa particular in the old city of Habana Vieja is the perfect base for this weekend extravaganza!

Don’t expect to be ready for work on Monday!

My Cuban Suitcase!

Packing for your holiday in Cuba needs some thought! We at Encompass Tours are familiar with the situation and we’d like to pass on some packing tips!

Apart from the usual “clothing to suit the weather conditions and activities you plan to participate in” What else??????

Knowing what conditions are on the ground and that the US trade embargo means that shopping for EVERYTHING can be either limited, difficult or impossible to get in Cuba.
