At Espíritu Travel we are passionate about Cuba, as is natural we want to help to maximize the benefits that tourism can bring to Cubans. Responsible Travel (RT) does not mean having to compromise on the enjoyment of your trip or the quality of your accommodation.
We strongly believe that our trips should directly benefit the communities we visit whenever possible through the principles of sustainable travel;
minimizing environmental impacts and optimizing community benefits, without sacrificing comfort or the character of vacations.
In a place like Cuba, where sustainable, responsible tourism is practically unheard of, it is no easy task but we believe that slowly this will change and we hope to be a part of that change.
