Join us for this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich local culture and rhythms of daily life in Cuba. Our program has been designed to unravel the richness of Cuban culture and allow the group to meet local residents and professionals from all walks of contemporary Cuban life while exploring local landmarks that are significant to Cuba’s heritage. Explore Havana, a treasure trove of churches, palaces, citadels and mansions wedged along narrow streets or looming over palm-fringed plazas. Enjoy a full day trip to Matanzas to experience the rich cultural history of this city known as the “Athens of Cuba,” before heading east to spend two days exploring Cienfuegos and Trinidad. The entire city of Trinidad with its fine palaces, cobbled streets and tiled roofs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered by many as the crown jewel of Cuba.
