As Seen On


You aren’t just clients, you are our family.  We are passionate about showing you this misunderstood, complicated, yet magical island.  We specialize in intimate and unique experiences that show you the real Cuba: The beauty and the struggles. While you’re here, you’ll be invited in our homes, meet our friends and families, and have a profound experience you won’t find anywhere else.

  • Support Cuban People

    Our Families and Friends

    The drivers are our friends, the cooks our moms. You’ll be welcomed like family, because you are!

  • Non-Touristy Experience

    The Beautiful and the Raw

    When we mean real, we mean it.  We aren’t afraid to show you some of the challenges AND the exciting changes. No sugarcoating.

  • Giving Back

    Proceeds go to Community

    Our families live in one of the most impoverished provinces in Cuba. The proceeds of the tour have helped us construct bathrooms (a luxury in Cuba) inside homes.

  • All Included

    Yes, Everything

    You got that right – Everything in Cuba is covered (except for tips if you want to show us extra love!) so you dont have to worry about anything.

My friend, my parents and I had an AMAZING experience. My parents got to experience many different parts of Havana from the beautiful, toursisty parts to the farms where plowed roads and electiricity can come and go.

About Us

Hola! My name is Marissa (or Missa, Mima, Mari).  You might have seen me on instagram as @mimaincuba showcasing my photography and my commentary from the island.  Now I’m here.. on a website! When I first started in 2015, I never thought I’d reach your eyes and I never thought I could call myself a “blogger.”But now that I’m a blogger, I guess you’re here to learn a bit more about me.  I’m horrible at these things, but I hope my personal insight into Cuba and perception of its socio-economic reality can help you have a better and more culturally conscious trip.My tips, guides, blog, and tours will help you see Cuba (and soon, other countries) differently than what’s on other sites..I made this site Mari Mundo in hopes, one day, to see the world beyond Cuba and the United States.  I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to Mexico, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Antilles Islands, Kenya and Tanzania.

Joel (or Yoel) is the ultimate instagram husband. He arranges everything and takes direction from Mari, because she is boss.  That is all. 🙂
