Fathom has announced they’ve been approved by Cuba to add stops in Santiago de Cuba to six of their upcoming voyages to the Dominican Republic.
In response to the huge demand for the Cuba sailings, and not as much interest in the cruises to the Dominican Republic, the Adonia will be stopping in the second largest city in Cuba during six DR voyages. Because of this, travelers will be able to experience two distinct destinations during one journey. They’ll be able to immerse themselves in the culture of Cuba for a day, and participate in the regularly scheduled social impact activities to make a difference in the Dominican.
During a full day of exploring Santiago de Cuba, travelers will be able to discover sights that are unique to the eastern side of the island. The city is home to the festivals of Carnaval and the Fiesta del Fuego, and is also home to many of Cuba’s most famed musicians and artists. Guests can tour the site of San Pedro de la Roca del Morro Castle, and explore San Juan Hill, Antonio Maceo Revolution Square, and the Plaza de Marte. One popular excursion available is a visit to Cuba’s most revered Catholic shrine, Our Lady of Charity El Cobre Church.
After arriving in the early evening to the Dominican Republic, guests will have 1.5 days to work alongside locals in activities like planting trees, producing artisan chocolates, and building water filters for local homes.
