Cuban Baseball Experience
Although it’s still not 100% legal, United States citizens have all but been given the all-clear to travel to Cuba. And if you have a love of baseball and have been looking for an excuse or reason to visit, the Cuban Baseball Experience event may be for you.
Baseball is considered a pastime here in the states and for all intents and purposes it seems to get Cubans just as excited, if not more so. The Cuban Baseball Experience will commence on Saturday, November 5, 2016 and will run through Saturday, November 12, 2016.
Things to know about this event:
- Sporting events are one of the categories your trip must fall into to be able to legally fly to Cuba. In September 2015 The New York Times reported “The 12 categories of legal travel include visits to close relatives, academic programs for which students receive credits, professional research, journalistic or religious activities and participation in public performances or sports competitions.”
- Time is against you in terms of booking, so if you are even remotely considering attending this event, call us now! This event is likely to sell out.
- You will need a valid passport to travel to Cuba. If your passport will expire within six months of the dates of travel your passport will be deemed invalid. You may need to expedite your passport paperwork to assure that it arrives in time. Without a valid passport you could end up canceling and potentially forfeiting all fees for your trip. (on that note: Ask us about traveler’s insurance! Better safe than sorry.)
- When you book, understand that you’re booking for the entire event. The event commences with a welcome reception and dinner at the Pullman Hotel in Miami. Then, on day two everyone in the Cuban Baseball Experience group will head to the Miami airport together to fly to Havana, Cuba. After arriving at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana you will have the opportunity to visit the Community Art Project of Muraleando. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner at La Guarida and finally a transport to the Hotel Sevilla.
- Days 3- 7 will feature a variety of baseball themed activities, site-seeing opportunities, leisure times for exploring, and of course taking in a few baseball games
- Day 7 will be the final day and night in Havana. There will be a farewell reception and dinner at San Cristobal, a restored mansion of 19th-century.
- Finally on day 8, the entire group will head back by plane to Miami, Florida. From there you can then fly home.
