High Rollers Can Now Take a $65,950 Trip to Cuba on a Private Jet
If you've been itching to check out Cuba and humble ferry or charter plane service just won't do, TCS World Travel has an extraordinary itinerary just for you.
TCS, which has been crafting private jet journeys for a quarter of a century, just announced its Cuba and South America trip: a 21-day adventure from Miami to Orlando, with stops in Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Cuba. Guests (up to 78) will travel between cities on a custom Boeing 757, outfitted with business-class seats, complimentary iPads and Bose headphones, and top-notch meal service.
Three full days of the trip will be spent in Havana, the city best known for its vibrant vintage cars, eclectic street art, and musicians. The trip is authorized as a peer-to-peer experience, and cultural exchanges will include private studio tours, an explanation of those famed Spanish colonial and Art Deco facades by a local architect, and plenty of opportunities to learn to rhumba.
From there, you'll head to South America, and reach the southernmost tip of the continent, before looping back up and returning, nearly a month later, to Florida.
You'll bed down in some of the world's most upscale hotels, such as Belmond and Four Seasons, and see some of the countries' most iconic landmarks (Machu Picchu, Iguassu Falls, the 100-foot-tall Christ the Redeemer statue) from the ground, as well as your lofty perch 30,000-feet up.
The price tag? A cool $65,950 per person. So empty those piggybanks, because this once-in-a-lifetime trip takes off on October 7. If you're ready to head to Cuba—but not ready to shell out for the private jet or take a sabbatical—not to fear. There are plenty of other ways to get yourself to Cuba now.
