Our travel partner, AHI (Alumni Holidays International), with whom we have worked for over a decade, has confirmed that as of now, they will continue to offer all of their scheduled tours to Cuba. The American Tour Operators of Cuba, a coalition of more than 50 U.S organizations offering travel services for Americans in Cuba issue​d​ a statement stressing that "...there has not been a single reported health incident affecting a tourist or civilian visitor of any nationality, much less American." And they note that many U.S. companies, including American Airline​s​, United Airlines, and Airbnb are also continuing their operations ​in​ and to Cuba without interruption.

We will be in regular communication with AHI and will update this page with any additional information, ​as it become​s​ available.
