Insight Cuba Celebrates Summertime Travel To Cuba: Save Up To $300 Per

Person On Six Signature Tours

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After 50

years of being forbidden to visit Cuba, Americans are flocking to the

island nation. At the same time, Cuba is experiencing an economic

renaissance, resulting in a burgeoning restaurant scene, increased

services in the tourism, and an upbeat vibe which is palpable on the

streets of Cuba. There has never been a more exciting time for

Americans to visit Cuba-and Insight Cuba, the leading provider of

U.S.-licensed people-to-people travel to Cuba, is adding one more

reason to go now. The company is offering savings up to $300 per

person during its Summer Promotion, available on six signature

itineraries with 13 departures from June through September.

"Our passengers return home from Cuba constantly commenting on the

changes taking place in Cuba and how amazing it is to be able to see

Cuba during its transformation," says Tom Popper, president of Insight

Cuba. Popper who often travels to Cuba with his daughter during the

summer continues, "Summer is my favorite time to visit Cuba. Like many

tropical climates, Cuba has fewer tourists during the summer, which

translates into more in-depth experiences for our guests, less crowded

places, and a more 'tranquilo' atmosphere."

As always, Insight Cuba guests can choose from a selection of six

exclusive tours, allowing them to travel when they want, for as long

as they want, and at the price they want. The Summer Promotion
