Cultural Cuba began as a passion project after a 2011 humanitarian visit to Cuba. Enthralled by the vibrant culture, history, architecture, and abundant talent of the Cuban people, founder David Lee wanted to share the richness of this experience with friends and family, but not as part of a rigid tour group with cookie-cutter itineraries. At the time, no companies were providing legal travel to Americans in a custom, private manner. So, David launched Cultural Cuba to serve this niche. Cuba is the home of the Daiquiri, Mojito, Hand Rolled Cigars, Salsa, Mambo, Rhumba, Cha Cha, and has more fully functioning 1950’s Classic Cars than anywhere in the world.
