The experience with Beyond Roots was fantastic. I highly recommend it for those who are looking for more insight about religion thru the lens of Afro-Cubans.

We met Frank, our host, at the Beyond Roots store- the meeting point for the experience. We had time to look at their unique items and plan our purchases. Frank took us on a short taxi ride to the home of the babalawo, where he gave us an introduction of the Afro Cuban religions and culture. What was great was he told us no questions were off limits, and we felt completely at ease in asking anything. Frank was so knowledgeable, gave us so much information. The cleansing ritual done by the babalawo was truly special--definitely will make you want to learn more about the religion!We had a delicious vegetarian meal and finished by experiencing the musicians and dancing for the oricha. The whole experience was beyond our expectations--highly recommend!

Good learning experience. It was an introduction to the Obeah & religious understanding of Santeria. I was able to tie together what I learned over the years with this experience, so it was very comforting to learn more and get confirmation. Overall it was a very rich and personable experience that left a great impression. Amazing vegetarian lunch along with time to enjoy some rum, listen, and dance to traditional music with live performers. The atmosphere is key and the short trip to the town of Guanabacoa brings it all together.

Frank is a very well-informed guide with a grounded, warm, and approachable manner. His English is also excellent. We were received warmly in the home we visited with Frank, learned many things about Santeria and its history and observed a ritual as well as a musical performance. We also ate a delicious home-cooked meal. Our 9-year-old daughter enjoyed the experience too. Very memorable.

Great tour. Frank was knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. We met at Beyond Roots, took a cab to a nearby town and spent the afternoon learning about Afro Cuban religion and culture at the home of a babalow. We did a cleansing ceremony. Lunch was great (okra stew, yucca fritters, yellow rice, etc.) loved the rum, drumming and dancing. Overall great experience.

Being Haitian, I grew up with the history of voodoo and the meaning in our culture. My husband is from Trinidad and the Obeah religion is embedded in his culture. We picked this excursion to learn from this and dispell some of the stigma we received from the Catholic influence we were exposed to. This was more than we expected as our host Frank delved deep into the meaning of the Afro-Cuban religions and how influential they are in the very facet of Cuban society. We also participated in a cleansing ritual from a babalawo but not the reading as it took too long. We were some amazing vegetarian lunch and had seconds and thirds. It is a lot of information so make sure to ask questions as everyone on the tour is not shy to answer all the questions.

This experience is magical! Our guide Frank was warm, welcoming and extremely passionate about his rich history. The knowledge we learned about the Afro Cuban heritage and religion gave us an instant sense of pride and connectivity. The Beyond Roots family greeted us with open arms and that felt like family from the time we made introductions. I would highly recommend this experience for all that visit Cuba. It will open your mind and heart to the mass abilities of God, ancestors and family. You will truly walk away knowing we are more alike than different. Oh and the food was best that Cuba has to offer. Delicious and made with love! Our reading from the Babalowa was life changing. We are grateful for this beautiful moment.

FAQs

Yes, it is. And easier than you can imagine! Many major airlines are making almost daily travels directly to Cuba from the states. Just arrive to the airport 2 or 3 hours prior and get you visa at the ticket counter. Just mark the section “Support for the Cuban People” under the application (pink card) and fill the requested information. Our itineraries besides providing you with an authentic immersion in the Cuban culture, they are also legally compliant with the US regulations

Credit cards issued by American banks won´t work here in Cuba, neither the ATMs.  But USD are accepted in every establishment! The official exchange rate at the banks is 1 USD = 120$ Cuban Pesos (CUP). But in reality, the exchange rate can go from 1 USD= 200 – 250 CUP. The exchange rate will vary depending on the location owner. Most of the cases It will be cheaper buying stuff in Cuban Pesos. But don´t worry we can arrange for one of our partners to exchange your USD to CUP at your house upon arrival for a more better exchange rate that you can find on the streets.

Beach weather all year round! Every month of the year is a great month to come to Cuba. We only have two seasons in Cuba. Summer, and Summer with the occasional storm. Keep in mind that depending if it is the tourism High season or the Low season, prices can vary at some spots.

Cuba is one of the safest places in all of Latin America and the safest in the Caribbean, even for solo travelers! The only things you have to keep an eye out is for pickpocketing in very crowded places and being scammed in tourist traps. So as long as you are aware of your surroundings and have one of our specialized guides accompanying you. You won´t have to worry about a thing
