For the first time in decades, Cuba’s doors are open to American travelers. The People to People program allows Americans and Cubans to share meaningful interactions while enjoying the rich history and culture of this amazing country. All people-to-people interactions weave seamlessly into the daily visits around the country, serving to enrich and enlighten.
The “Cuba Discovery” tour is from November 4 through 12 and provides the opportunity to interact with the locals to learn about life through captivating educational activities and conversations. Highlights include an interactive dance lesson, a ride in an Old Styler car, lunches at organic farms and discussions about Cuba’s free enterprise system. A special treat is a visit to the studio of artist José Fuster, known as the “Picasso of the Caribbean.” Guests will also enjoy a guided walk in Old Havana and a nature walk in Las Terrazas Biosphere Reserve, to learn about the area’s unique flora and fauna. Hemingway fans will be delighted to visit his beloved home and see his fishing boat, El Pilar. Guests also tour Cuba’s lush tobacco region, where they’ll even have a chance to try rolling their own cigars!
The second itinerary from December 7 through 15 features a “Charming Colonial City” tour, where guests can explore some of Cuba’s colonial cities with their cobblestone streets and historic architecture. In fact, the city centers of Camagüey, Trinidad and Havana have all been named UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Participate in discussions about Cuba’s history, agriculture, music, religion, and art Interact with the dancers of the world-renowned Camagüey Ballet Company and local artists and exchange views on the importance of art to a community; engage with musicians who will introduce you to son, Cuba’s popular music; discuss private enterprise in Cuba with local owners and staff; and meet Cuban baseball players to discuss this favorite pastime in both Cuba and the U.S. Fascinating, informative and insightful discoveries await on this rare opportunity to visit the “Pearl of the Antilles.” It’s an experience like no other!
