Cuba With Guillermo April 9-16 2013 - It's been on your to do list forever.....Are you going to let another year go by without visiting Cuba, still largely unaffected by the outside world? From late nigh salsa clubs and tobacco plantations, to the Caribbean beaches, Cuba dazzles.With just enough structure, while respecting your freedom for the exploration and serendipity, I found the balance that removes the stress of international travel while retaining the sense of discovery.

April 9/16 could include 7 days and nights of first class acommodations and breakfast in the historic center of Havana, RT airfare from La Paz, all travel logistics and visas, medical insurance, photo oportunities and once in a lifetime experiences. Or you could choose not to go and miss all the fun. There is only space for 10. - Guillermo Bueron Prieto, g_bueron [- at -] yahoo.com, www.guillermolanguageandtravel.com, 612 161 4165, Todos Santos
