Commerce Lexington announced this week that it will offer a nine-day, eight-night trip to Cuba beginning Aug. 23. The trip will include stops in Old Havana, Sugar Mill Valley, the Partagas Cigar Factory and the Bay of Pigs Museum. The trip is being coordinated by chamber of commerce travel organization Chamber Explorations, which has been approved by the federal government to send Americans to the country.
The trip will cost $3,499 a person with double occupancy or $4,099 for single occupancy. Registration is encouraged by March 1; the organization does not guarantee additional reservations will be taken after that date.

Last year, Commerce Lexington organized a trip to China that was attended by 60 people. A separate Cuba trip is being offered this year by World Trade Center Kentucky, an organization promoting trade missions and education.
