"Travel to Cuba is the latest craze, and loosening of restrictions on travel there by U.S. citizens means many tour companies are jumping into the fray. A somewhat different approach is offered by ROW Adventures, a company that specializes in adventure travel around the world. Cuba Unbound: Adventure Tour is an eight-day itinerary that naturally looks at much of the island nation's culture but also adds in kayaking and hiking. Kayaking is in sheltered bays and in calm conditions, so it is appropriate for novice to intermediate paddlers. The trip starts and ends in Havana but then spends time kayaking in places such as the wetlands of Zapata National Park and the waters of Cayo Blanco, a key of white-sand beaches and coral reefs. For cultural exposure, there are stops such as the relatively new Museo de Ernesto Hemingway. The tour is priced from $2,995 per person double occupancy, which includes seven nights' lodging, meals, a bilingual Cuban guide and ROW Adventures representative and a variety of activities. Round-trip air from Miami is extra and should be about $500. Info: 800-451-6034, https://www.tinyurl.com/prwgmmh."
