Commerce Lexington said Tuesday that it is offering a second trip to Cuba after overwhelming interest led its first trip to sell out.
The second nine-day, eight-night trip to Cuba will depart Aug. 16, a week before the earlier announced Aug. 23 trip. 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 Cuba.
The trip is $3,499 a person with double occupancy or $4,099 for single occupancy. To learn more, go to Commercelexington.com/events/discover_cuba_2012.aspx. An informational meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. March 21 at Commerce Lexington, 330 East Main Street.
Last year, Commerce Lexington organized a trip to China; 60 people participated. A separate Cuba trip is being offered this year by World Trade Center Kentucky, an organization that promotes trade missions and education.
