Cuba: Watch Our Fresh, New Video!

Though Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, it is as fragile as any other small, unconnected land mass. Cuba’s size and topography support a unique diversity of flora and fauna. The country’s varied ecological zones--from coastal swamps to sizable mountain ranges work as one contiguous island ecosystem. International Expeditions videographer, John Christie, returned from Cuba the day President Barack Obama announced the change in US-Cuba policy. As travel restrictions loosen between the US and Cuba, we hope companies like International Expeditions will move into Cuba with a cross-cultural mission to preserve the integrity of the environment and set a precedence for how tourism development should take place. This hope relies upon leaders who understand the long-term impact of over-development and by Cubans who recognize many will visit their land to see the real Cuba and its natural treasures.
