Here's your one-stop-shop for all of your pre-departure travel needs!

 

Maybe you misplaced our travel newsletter email or perhaps you just have more questions ... here is where you can find most, if not all of the information you'll need before you travel!

Our Pre-Departure Process: Get Ready, Get Set ... Travel!

Our first phase ensures we start working on key logistics soon after you register -- we ensure your flight, visa, housing, and other important items are addressed first. If you have not yet, please fill out your application form -- as it is vital to this phase of travel!

This next phase will allow our team to understand more of your goals, interests, and needs as we put the finishing touches on your  program.  You will get highlights of typical MetaMovements activities to help you envision our trips to the island.

Join our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to get a glimpse of what's in store!  You will have opportunities to go deeper into your understanding of Cuban Culture through events & media -- so that you can feel prepared to dive in when you arrive!

In the final weeks leading up to your trip, our correspondence will be more frequent and geared towards all those final details you need to know like packing, getting through the airport, and any major updates regarding your program on the ground. We will also organize a pre-departure meeting to prepare you for your trip and to answer your questions.

Documents & Guides

These are items that past travelers have found to be useful on a trip to Cuba. However, a good rule of thumb is anything you can’t live without, bring with you. You never know what amenities will be difficult to find! Items that are marked in red are highly recommended because we know they are always extremely hard to find on the island.  Below are some packing guides for you to refer to.

People often ask what things cost on the island... here are a few samples.  If you have specific questions, please feel free to let us know.  People usually bring more money than they think they will spend because credit cards and ATMs don't work.  $1000 is an average amount, although some bring less and some more.  It is useful to bring $100 bills.
