Cuba: People, Culture, Art

When: January 07, 2018 - January 15, 2018 (iCal)

Description

 
 
 
“Great for immersion into music, culture, and history”
 
 
 

For most of us, Cuba has always been shrouded in mystery and geopolitical intrigue. Here is our chance to draw aside the Sugar Cane Curtain and meet the real Cuba, face to face. This small-group, People-to- People educational exchange, licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department, gives us unique access to the culture, heritage, and daily life of this vibrant island nation. We’ll learn from Cuban experts, interact with local artists, and gain fresh perspectives on Cuba’s history and economy. Along the way, we’ll experience vivacious Old Havana, the pastoral Pinar del Rio region, Hemingway’s home in Cuba, enchanting seaside Cienfuegos, and photogenic Trinidad — not to mention three UNESCO World Heritage sites and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Exceptional value: Price includes round-trip air, first-class accommodations, and an extensive meal plan. Maximum of 28 travelers. Don’t wait. Book now!
