Joslin Fritz

Long-time traveler and international guide, Joslin Fritz began leading people-to-people exchange programs to Cuba in 2012. With countless trips encompassing all parts of the island, she has developed long-lasting relationships with everyone from local artists and musicians to university professors, contacts which set her itineraries apart with insights only locals can share.

As a former rafting and outdoor recreation guide in Alaska, California, Oregon and Canada, Joslin is passionate about developing more active itineraries in Cuba that focus on enjoying the island’s unique Caribbean landscape through multi-sport activities, while still abiding by people-to-people license regulations.

Joslin’s experience allows her to easily maneuver through the challenges of travel in Cuba so that her guests have the best (and smoothest) trip possible. She wants you to experience Cuba through its beautiful countryside, rich culture and, most importantly, through interacting with Cubans.
