Conference in Cuba in February

Jump to last reply

I plan to attend a professional conference in Cuba in mid-February. I may be solo or traveling with another woman. I speak adequate Spanish, though am not a native speaker. I am not intimidated traveling in a non-English environment and have traveled in rural Guatemala regularly, leading my own group.

Navigating flight arrangements is daunting. Looking for cheap flights. Canada? Charter from Miami? Cancun? Anyone have advice? I live in North Carolina. My conference is Tuesday to Friday.

Where should I stay? I prefer homestays if at all possible. I have done airbnb when necessary. I have simple needs. I camp with the Boy Scouts regularly, so am quite hardly to reasonable hardships. I am not looking for a great hotel experience.

Thanks in advance for your guidance and gentle kindness.
