Responsible Traveling in CUba

Responsible Travel in Cuba

As a team of people that are both passionate about travel and passionate about Cuba we are very much aware of the impact travel and tourism can have on a destination. Of course economic gain from tourism can be very important to a country but it should never be at the expense of its culture, environment or people’s wellbeing. Locally Sourced Cuba tours therefore aims to provide our fellow travellers with experiences that have a positive impact on the locations they visit – promoting responsible travel in Cuba. As visitors of another country, we should never look to impose our own culture, traditions or beliefs on others and instead look to appreciate those of the locals and experience first hand a different way of life.

"This is not only good for the communities we visit but it also gives our travellers more enriched adventures.”

  • Supporting and working directly with Cuban businesses, services and individuals.
  • Sourcing supplies and equipment in Cuba.
  • Working with, supporting and involving Cuban people
  • Consulting with and treating our travellers, local communities and businesses in a fair and just manner.
  • Working with other partners who are focused on giving back to the community
  • Having our travellers stay at Casa Particulares (small family run home-stays)
  • Being efficient in our use of natural resources.
  • Minimising environmental damage for items that can carry a negative impact (see our environmental code of conduct).
  • Leaving accommodation sites in better condition than we find them.
  • Running group tours that are small, helping minimise cultural and environmental impact and allowing for a more enriched travel experience.
  • Following Cuban government and local council recommendations for preserving flora and fauna.
  • Working with like-minded companies who share our passion for travel, the environment and ethical travel in Cuba.

It is important to us that Locally Sourced leads by example in the area of responsible travel in Cuba. We use every available opportunity to remind our staff of the importance of the need to reduce, re-use and recycle. All of our guides are aware of our responsible tourism objectives and values and buy into the importance of this remit.
