In her own words. My lifelong passion has been humanities, and from my early years, I oriented my career towards the social sciences.
I graduated from the University of Havana Law School in 2004 and three years later had the honor to serve as a legal advisor for Cubanacan. It’s the largest Cuban travel agency hosting the highest number of international visitors to the island. My work for Cubanacan was a life-changing experience. While there I acquired a deep understanding and knowledge of the intricacies of Cuban tourism industry.
In 2013 I started working for the specialty Cuban travel agency San Cristóbal, which focuses on cultural, historical and educational tourism. San Cristóbal is Cuba Explorer’s island partner. I was responsible for establishing Cuba Explorer’s legal and physical presence in Cuba. For three years I served as the agency’s operations manager and staff director at its headquarters located in Old Havana’s Plaza San Francisco de Asís in the historical Lonja del Comercio building.
Afterward, I moved to the United States, to the beautiful city of Miami! Here I continue my work with Cuba Explorer Travel as it chief designer of custom Cuba tours for schools and large private groups.
Today I have the pleasure to collaborate with hundreds of US-based educational institutions and private entities to prepare and plan tailored Cuba trips. It’s my new passion. My work helps thousands of Americans visit the country of my birth of which I remain immensely proud.
