Cuba 2020 is a great year to travel to Cuba.  Despite the rumors, according to OFAC, US Citizens can travel to Cuba under specific licenses.  What is gone is the People-to-People Program.  However, Support the Cuban People is going strong, and it is legal.  Kola Nut Travel is an authorized and licensed agency to promote travel to Cuba.  What we do is arrange small to middle-sized groups (6 to 75).  We focus on the Afro Cuban people.   Kola Nut Travel's Cuba programs are best suited for those interested in exploring and experiencing the rich culture, traditions, dance, cuisine, music, arts, green medicine, and education.  Our coordinated programs will consist of a ten-day program that provides for Panama and Havana and the surrounding areas.  A second tour will highlight the excellent job that Cuba has achieved with 100% literacy throughout the island.  Kola Nut Travel does coordinate custom programs for groups of at least 10 traveling together.  Our prices will include air, and no, we do not handle applications where the individual traveler handle their independent lodging.

The Panama Canal is more than the Canal or cruise.  It is an ecological center of the Americas with beautiful resorts, beaches, music, and cultural experiences.  Less than two hours outside of Panama, travelers can visit the rainforest, perhaps the Embera people.  You will travel by canoe to their village and enjoy a wonderful lunch and celebration.  Panama City has terrific shops, hotels, and restaurants. There are beach hotels that offer golfing, spin classes, and yoga.  Kola Nut Travel will include tours to the Afro-Panamian community on each trip.  We will be offering week-long trips to Panama as well as four-day stopovers before going to Belize or Cuba.  We can also design a program for you based on the needs of your group of ten or more.
