Espíritu Travel is a company that believes travelers want to experience authentic trips in a way that makes a positive impact to local communities and the places that they visit. It is not easy in a destination like Cuba but we try our best.   Our goal is connect travelers with meaningful, unique and well… awesome experiences while in Cuba. Our tours help to promote the small but growing number of entrepreneurs that is why we almost exclusively work with casas particulares, paladares and other privately owned businesses.

At Espíritu Travel we are passionate about Cuba, so naturally we want to help to maximize the benefits that tourism can bring to Cubans. Responsible Travel (RT) does not mean having to compromise on the enjoyment of your trip or the quality of your accommodation. We feel strongly that our tours should directly benefit the communities we visit whenever possible through the principles of sustainable travel; minimizing environmental impacts and optimizing community benefits, without sacrificing comfort or the character of your vacation. Visit our website at or email our founder, Karin Eckhard at
