    Hi, we live in the USA and have been to Cuba, now we are considering an off-the-beaten track adventure. Things like an overnight trek in the mountains, going fishing with a local fisherman, learning the indigenous story in Cuba plus a little city life too. We are open to ideas. Is this the type of thing that you do? It would be two couples. Thanks, Don
