Cuba has long been a dream destination for many American travellers, and it is gradually becoming a genuine possibility. Relaxed regulations have made it easier for Americans to get to the island for reasons of cultural exchange, though unfettered travel is still some way off the cards. One thing is for sure; Cuba is on the cusp. A dramatic change looms ahead, though right now, much of what makes this country so special – the classic cars, undeveloped beaches, decaying yet beautiful buildings and inimitable atmosphere – is still very much present.
One of our clients, Photo Xpeditions, is enabling travellers to experience this fascinating nation through a new photographic workshop. And our team at World Words produced the web copy and travel itinerary around this. The nine-day tour takes in the country’s second-largest city, Santiago de Cuba; the lesser-known coastal city of Baracoa; labyrinthine Camagüey and many more places besides. Led by two professional (and award-winning) photographers with years of experience snapping and exploring Cuba, the workshop promises the chance for photographers to both experience and capture the island’s unique essence during this most interesting of times.
