Exploring Havana, Cuba
This five-day trip focuses on Havana—the cultural, political, and economic center of Cuba—where evolving relations with the United States have been influencing significant changes. Our stunning program features exclusive lectures, private performances, artistic demonstrations and interpretations, and informal conversations with local Cubans. Tour Old Havana to witness the extensive restoration of the city’s monuments and Colonial buildings. Immerse yourself in the Cuban art community through guided tours of museums, meetings with artists in their studios, and discussions with local curators. While staying in a five-star hotel accommodations and enjoying meals at the city’s finest restaurants, our program focuses on unique access opportunities allowing a deeper understanding of Cuba’s history, where it is today, and where it might be in five years’ time. As diplomatic and economic ties between the United States and Cuba are strengthened over the next few years, the country will continue to change dramatically. Now is the time to experience Cuba as it is today—there simply could not be a more exciting time to visit this “time-capsule” nation before its landscape changes forever.
