From the South Florida Symphony Orchestra:
Dear Friends of the Symphony,
The South Florida Symphony Orchestra is pleased to extend a special invitation for you to join us as we embark on a remarkable people-to-people journey to Cuba, made possible through our association with CubaPuentes, Inc.
CubaPuentes has a people to people license regulated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Our trip is designed to promote contact with the people of Cuba through a full schedule of educational activities resulting in meaningful interactions between travelers and individuals - where the people are the story. Through their eyes and hearts, we will venture down an incomparable path as we immerse ourselves in a transformative experience with the people, customs and culture of Havana.
Life is about moments…The memories we will share on this priceless journey will last a lifetime.
Jacqueline Lorber, CEO, South Florida Symphony Orchestra
Please Note: This trip is permitted by a special People-to-People license from the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. This itinerary was designed to provide an immersive experience with numerous opportunities for meaningful interaction with Cubans.
CubaPuentes has a license from OFAC to conduct people to people travel to Cuba; as such each traveler will have a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between the travelers and individuals in Cuba. Due to current US government regulations travel to Cuba is highly restricted. Travel to Cuba is not permitted solely for tourist purposes. Current U.S. Travel restrictions apply to all citizens and residents of the United States regardless of what country they travel to Cuba from or whether in addition to US citizenship they hold citizenship from another country. Travel restrictions in Cuba, such as limits on how much one may spend and what may be purchased, will be provided in your pre-departure materials. Please note that travel regulations to Cuba could be subject to change.
