On this eight-night journey, we’ll visit the UNESCO World Heritage cities of Camagüey (with its unique labyrinthine layout), Trinidad and Havana. Although Havana remains Cuba’s largest city, there is so much to be learned from traveling through the other provinces of the largest island of the Caribbean. Beyond Havana, Cuba is a contrast of bucolic landscapes and vibrant art scenes. Monuments crucial to the island’s history dot a landscape that’s changed little over the last 100 years, where the major form of transport remains the horse and cart. Tour rural markets, nature preserves, old sugar mills, and historic monuments. Snorkel off a pristine beach in Jibacoa, and attend private screenings and recitals in Havana. We’ll meet with filmmakers, architects, artists, dancers, and activists, exploring the treasures of Cuba’s cities and its countryside.
