About US

What sets us apart.
Connect to Cuba

Soltura is a Spanish word with definitions ranging from comfort to agile to fluent. We consider ourselves a conduit through which our travelers can truly experience the cultural delicacies that exist in Cuba, and can also relax knowing that the details of your travel will be cared for. While there are now a myriad of tour companies leading trips to Cuba, we hold true to a passion for sincere cultural connection that our tour leaders have maintained over years, having led trips to Cuba since 2008.

Soltura Travel leads small, specialized group trips and we get to know Cuba through guest lectures and by getting to know the Cubans we will spend time with in Cuba. We attempt to provide a much deeper sense of the culture than what one might get through the window of a tour bus. If you intend to visit Cuba to gain a true insight into what life is like there and to connect with it’s people, or if you desire a small group trip tailored to your passions, Soltura Travel is structured to ensure that you are well cared for by people who are well-organized and passionate about travel.

It is integral to our mission that we give back when we travel. We have partnered with several free educational projects in Cuba that work with youth on weekends, strengthening a sense of community, and instilling a love for the arts. We bring donations to help support these projects, and a percentage of our trip fees goes directly to supporting these programs. Visiting the project sites is usually a highlight of the trip for our travelers, and together, we make a positive impact on our world. As citizen diplomats, shouldn’t that be a priority?
