My name is Elena and I come from the outskirts of Havana. I have a degree in Tourism from Havana University and since being a tour guide this has turned into the most important part of my life. I feel a deep passion for showing the beauty of my country to those who want to visit it, and love meeting amazing people from all over the world. I believe in the power of Cuba to change travellers’ lives because of how authentic, exotic, different and unique my little island is. My favourite parts of running tours are being in touch with the population by visiting communities and small farms, and creating bonds with travellers making them feel that once they return home that they’ve left a little piece of them behind in Cuba.
