Legacies and Landscapes of Cuba

2nd Departure!

Click here to download the itinerary and registration packet


Cuba’s defiant history makes it a Caribbean island unlike any other. With recent changes in travel policy, you are now able to visit its colonial towns and tropical landscapes and explore its Afro-Cuban culture. You’ll traverse the island from west to east—Havana to Santiago—taking in colonial towns with small squares and cobblestone streets, where you’ll meet contemporary artists to learn their views on thematic shifts in 21st-century Cuban art, trending away from revolutionary content. You’ll also learn the history of Cuban political development at Havana’s Presidential Palace Museum, and have an opportunity to interact with Cubans from all walks of society.
