The Devenish Group's very first event of the year was our long-planned Caribbean venture extraordinaire... a trip to Cuba for nine glorious days!
Once in Havana, we checked into our five star Hotel Parque Central filled with tourists from all over the world… and yes, many Americans, too. Guess Cuba is open to all now and beckoning!
Of course, our group traveled there on humanitarian visas allowed by the U.S. government which meant we had to arrive with bags of mostly toiletry necessities destined for Cuban inhabitants, in our case a convent our gracious tour coordinator and premium Devenish Group member Madeline Eckett Oden had before arranged. Madeline, who herself has traveled to Cuba many times over the years, had everything planned ahead of time for us and the entire trip unfolded with absolute perfection! She was expertly aided by Tony Ransola, our Miami-based tour guide and Vivian Quintero, our guide in Havana, both of whom made the whole trip a thorough breeze!
