More than 50 confirmed participants have already registered to “Discover Cuba” through a travel program sponsored by the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce – and the wide-reaching response has led the Chamber to open another 40 seats to accommodate additional interest.
“We have travelers from all over the state who have signed up for the trip,” said Kathy Tilque, president and CEO of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, in a press release. “This is going to be the trip of a lifetime with a cultural experience that will not be forgotten.”
The Chamber will host an informational meeting April 26 at 5:30 p.m. at the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, 119 N. Gilbert Road, Suite 101. A representative of Chamber Explorations will review the travel itinerary and answer general questions regarding the Discover Cuba expedition. Itinerary highlights include visits to museums, local villages, prehistoric painted caves, cathedrals, botanical gardens, a sugar plantation – even a farm owned by Ernest Hemingway.
The trip will run from Oct. 2 through Oct. 16 at a cost of $3,799 per person, including non-stop airfare from Los Angeles to Havana, hotels, 21 meals, and small group outings.
