About Us

Who We Are

Embracing Cuba Travels is a boutique agency dealing with higher end Cuba experiences. 

At EmbracingCUBA Tours (YABBA BIRI Tours), our mission is to continue fostering mutual respect through education, engagement, and entertainment.

We do Cuba RIGHT!

Why Cuba?

Inspired by his decade-long excursions, intercultural studies, and bolstered by the success of his award-winning photo book Embracing Cuba (University Press of Florida), author/photographer Byron Motley launched EmbracingCUBA Tours (aka YABBA BIRI Tours), offering travel  tailored to showcase Cuba's rich culture.

We offer unique ONE-OF-A-KIND excursions!

Why Choose Us?

Through the years, Byron has established enduring friendships with political figures, artists, musicians, dancers, photographers, shop-owners, restaurateurs, tour directors, athletes and everyday people in every province of the country. It is these relationships, and, on occasion, his unprecedented access at all levels of Cuban society that makes EmbracingCUBA Tours (YABBA BIRI Tours) superior to other Cuban travel options.

We KNOW what we're doing!
