What to Expect

Activity Level 3

Participants must be able to walk for long distances over uneven cobblestones and up and down stairs without problems. Cuba’s infrastructure is weak, and participants need to have a spirit of adventure and be prepared for possible, but unlikely, temporary power outages and non-functioning elevators. This is a fast-paced program.
