Wait, is it legal to travel to Cuba?
Yes! And La Luchita Project is on pause. These are tough times because of Covid and travel to Cuba policies change often. There are currently very limited flights to the island. Last time we checked, in order to go to Cuba, U.S. travelers must fall under one of 12 travel categories. We travel under the support for the Cuban people category, which means that we must provide travelers with a full time itinerary of meaningful activities intended to strengthen civil society in Cuba. With our guidance, you'll take care of booking your flight and getting your Cuban visa. We'll take care of the rest of the logistics! You can learn more about traveling to Cuba here.
Why would I travel with La Luchita Project?
If you want to be part of a community of progressive organizers and educators or people who just care about building a better world, you gotta come thru with us! We're organizers too and we know the struggle of not being able to travel much with a non-profit or campaign salary, and that's why we charge sliding scale and we encourage those who benefit from systems of oppression to contribute more. And look, if you want to turn up while having genuine conversations about Cuba with a loving community, we're what you've been looking for.
Alright, how difficult will it be to book my flight?
You can book your flight online! To compare prices we recommend using Google Flights, Kayak or similar flight search engines. But the airlines with regular flights to Cuba are American Airlines, Southwest, JetBlue, Delta and United.
