Cuba’s Cultural Heritage I

FEB. 17-24, 2018
Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad

Join us as we explore the island of Cuba – a resplendent tropical island unlike any other in the Caribbean. It is a country of picturesque colonial towns and magnificent 20th century architecture, a country of spectacularly beautiful landscapes, an intriguing Afro-Cuban culture and a vibrant music, dance and art scene. Our program, which travels from Havana to Trinidad, will unravel the richness of Cuban culture and allow the group to meet professionals from all walks of contemporary Cuban life.  Throughout this compliant People to People program, discussions with economists, artists, educators and historians will allow travelers to gain an insight into life in Cuba today and provide vision into its likely future path.
