Rico's Legacy

With a heavy heart we announce that our founder, Ricardo Hernandez, has passed away on March 23rd of 2018. 

Ricardo's legacy is carried on by his wife Rosa, and three children, Jessica, Jonathan, and Justin. 

Ricardo (better known as Rico) had a vision many years ago for his travel company and he made it happen. Rico rose above his conditions and persevered against all odds. He built a successful Cuba travel company with his family and staff out of Cuba for the past 20 years (with little to no resources) before expanding into the US early this year. Rico's passing was sudden and very hard on all who knew him. We all knew one thing, that Rico would want his family to carry on the legacy he built of Rico's Travel Cuba.

We are proud to announce that we will be carrying on that legacy and continue operations through Rico's wife Rosa, their exceptional travel team in Havana, and our US office. We will continue to provide you with an incredible and authentic experience through Rico's Travel, just the way that Rico would want it!

By booking your trip through Rico's Travel Cuba, you are directly effecting his staff, family and making it possible to keep his business and legacy, alive and well. Although, it's just not Rico's Travel without Ricardo Hernandez himself being with us anymore, we know that we are making him proud by continuing to spread his legacy.

Rest in heaven Ricardo Hernandez.
