Air Travel

Air travel is not included in the trip price and each individual is expected to make their own travel arrangements. That being said, Bend + Bloom Yoga will work with the group to identify the best airfare options possible. There are currently commercial flights available with layovers in other countries. According to news reports and our Cuban travel expert partners, we expect that direct, commercial flight service from the U.S. to Havana will start in fall 2016. If that does not happen we will make recommendations for existing commercial flights or will explore the option for a group charter.

 

Ground Transportation

A minimum of one group shuttle will be provided between the airport and our hotel in Havana. The shuttle will be arranged to accommodate the majority of travelers, based on flight information that you provide to us. If you are unable to take the shuttle, clear instructions will be provided for you to hire a taxi to our hotel.
