A&K gets OK for Cuba tours

By Gay Nagle Myers

Abercrombie & Kent USA has joined the growing list of companies offering

people-to-people programs to Cuba with a 10-day itinerary departing

Sept. 6, followed by additional departures throughout 2013 and into 2014.

The company, which recently received its license from the U.S.

Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control, had tried

to enter the Cuba market in September 2011 but pulled its programs off

the market soon after they were introduced, pending a review and

clarification of new Cuba regulations that had been issued by OFAC in

July 2011.

"Much of Cuba's allure comes from the mystery surrounding an island lost

in time," said Phil Otterson, president of Abercrombie & Kent USA. "From

my personal experience, I can say its real charm is found in the

culture, art, cuisine, music and personal stories shared by the people

who live there."

Cuba: People to People, limited to 24 participants, will visit Havana,

Caibarien in northern Cuba, the rural countryside of Vinales, the

fishing community of Proyecto de Arte Por la Costa and the Unesco

Biosphere Reserve.

The itinerary will offer opportunities to meet with musicians, artists,

a salsa instructor, a ceramicist, farmers, physicians, a Foreign Service

scholar and baseball players.

Land arrangements start at $4,995 per person, double, a savings of $300

when booked by Aug. 15. Charter air from Miami is $525 plus a visa fee

of $75.
