2020 Cuba Trip


YES we are going to Cuba! It’s an exciting time to explore an amazing country.

As always we are intent on being good ambassadors, spreading goodwill, sharing amazing photography and having a great time.. We stay at lovely air-conditioned “Casa Particular” Bed and Breakfasts providing engaging friendships. You’ll get your own private room, similar to a bed and breakfast, in the home of local host families that have an outstanding reputation who have previously provided this hospitality numerous times. You’ll fall in love with Cuba and your photos will be fantastic from vintage cars to tobacco farms.

This isn’t Cuba. New photo soon.

A Guatemalan storyteller and painter depicts the life of his parents and grandparents in his village. Finally at peace today but the past remains an important part of Maya history. 

 Activity Level - light to moderate there are plenty of options on this trip to customize from

light to difficult. You can choose to hang out in the park plaza talking to the lovely children or get up early for a sunrise hike up a volcanoe.

Our intention and how we choose our hotels  through Laughing Planet Travel is to be intentionally giving photographers. We choose to stay at local hotels rather than corporate hotels.  All Bed and Breakfast have hot water, clean beds and delicious clean food in the hotel or next door.
