Airbnb and Fathom agree that you appreciate a destination more when you’re able to fully immerse yourself. Airbnb connects travelers to a network of shareable homes all over the world. Fathom connects travelers to the Dominican Republic and Cuba through powerful experiences with local people. And now, we’ve come together to connect you with a special offer: share you home on Airbnb and earn a $250 credit towards your next Fathom cruise. As you’re welcomed by the people of the communities you visit, return the favor and give a fellow traveler a home away from home.

About Fathom

Fathom is a pioneering travel company that gives travelers the opportunity to go deep inside some of the world’s greatest destinations in a way other travel companies don’t. They believe that traveling can and should actively benefit the places it touches. Through immersive small-ship cruises to Cuba and the Dominican Republic, they’ll introduce you to vibrant cultures and the fascinating people who live them every day. When you travel with Fathom, you truly connect with people in a way that enriches your life and theirs. Like Airbnb, it’s based on sharing.

How it works

Fathom is about connection and exchange, allowing you to become part of a much larger story. Itineraries are designed to provide an ideal balance of cultural contact, historical exploration, leisure activity (or inactivty, if that’s your thing), and positive engagement with local people and communities. Each cruise builds upon the legacy of the previous one, which means that you’re not just going with your current traveling companions, but all Fathom travelers who have come before.

The Dominican Republic

For most people, the DR begins and ends with all-inclusive resorts, and maybe Santo Domingo if you’re lucky. Fathom’s adventures in the DR center around Puerto Plata, an unspoiled gem of a city on the island’s Atlantic coast. Home to 60 miles of gorgeous coastline and positively stunning mountainscapes, it’s no wonder that Puerto Plata was named one of Travel + Leisure’s best places to visit in 2015.

Fathom travelers get the benefit of discovering this underexplored city, meeting the locals and delving into its vibrant culture. But they also go a level deeper; Fathom’s cruises give travelers the chance to truly connect with the DR and its people through eight unique and powerful “impact activities.” Spend time at a chocolate cooperative, craft and fire clay water filters, plant seedlings, engage in conversation with local students eager to improve their English and a variety of other activities will bring you closer to your destination than any vacation you’ve ever had.


Fathom is the first travel company in over 50 years to be granted approval from both the United States and Cuban governments to run round-trip cruises to the island nation. You can hear and feel Cuba’s energy before you even step off the boat; the cities of Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba pulse with an intriguing rhythm that draws you in. Cultural immersion is paramount on Cuba tours, and you’ll quickly discover just how welcoming the citizenry can be to new visitors.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
