The photography workshop pricing is comprised of 2 components and is in Canadian Dollars. The following was our 2020 pricing, this will help to give you an idea of what PhotoCuba 2022 may cost. We will not be able to post 2022 pricing until August 2021.

- Travel companions are welcome to come and enjoy a vacation at the hotel while you are participating in the workshop. A travel companion would just pay the travel fee.
- Travel companions can come on the Santiago day trip for $125+13% tax ($141.25).
- Over the years most participants have found that it is far more economical to book the package and fly out of Toronto direct to Santiago de Cuba with Sunwing and our group.
- Sunwing offers an excellent price on staying an additional week at Los Galeones hotel either the week before or after the workshop. Please ask Sandy from Burkhart Travel to assist you with this.
- If you are making your own travel arrangements, please be at Los Galeones Hotel in Chivirico on Wednesday January 8, 2020 at 3:00pm for our welcome session.
