The Cuba Tourist Board is offering travel advisors in Ontario the opportunity to take part in two special FAM groups that are running from October 17-24, 2023.

FAM group #1 is entitled “Hidden Gems of Eastern Cuba, including: Holguin, Bayamo, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa.”

On this itinerary, travel agents can learn more about these off-the-beaten-path cities and be able to offer new alternatives for their clients, especially to Canadians who have “been there, done that” and are seeking new experiences and adventures.

Highlights of this program include visits to World Heritage sites, a chance to immerse in Cuba’s history and rich culture and partake in thrilling adventures at “La Gran Piedra” National Park, excursion to Yumuri river and tour of Baracoa, which is the oldest colonial city in Cuba and a perfect place to unwind and marvel at the breathtaking outdoors.

Traveling dates for this trip are:

  • YYZ/HOG on October 17, 2023
  • HOG/YYZ on October 24, 2023

FAM group# 2 is “Explore the stunning new destinations of Paredon Grande & Cayo Cruz, combined with the colonial beauty of Trinidad.”

This group will sightsee the recently-opened islands of Cayo Paredon Grande and Cayo Cruz with their modern infrastructure, visit the charming town of Trinidad with its cobblestone streets and its grand colonial buildings and participate at “Destinos Gaviota” a fun-filled conference organized by Gaviota Group, designed to welcome tour operators and retailers to showcase Gaviotas hotel group products.

Highlights of the program include a chance to explore these two islands with scenic ocean views along the way, pristine beaches that “seem to go on forever,” catamaran cruise to Media Luna Key; a visit to Trinidad and “The Valley of Sugar Mills” (both World heritage Sites) and attend activities featured in “Destinos Gaviota” program.

Traveling dates for the trip are:

  • YYZ/CCC on October 17 , 2023
  • CCC/YYZ on October 24 , 2023

To qualify for these FAM trips, travel advisors must be TICO registered and actively sell Cuba.
