FALL 2014 TRIPS



CUBAN DISCOVERY
A People-to-People Educational Exchange


Date: October 17–25, 2014
Price: From $4,899 per person double occupancy

Cuba: Historically rich, culturally diverse, environmentally magnificent. For decades, the Caribbean's largest island—roughly 90 miles away from U.S. soil—has been but a mystery, perceived through secondhand sources and beyond the grasp of most American travelers.

Now that People-to-People exchanges are possible, we invite you to embark on a captivating journey that reveals Cuba's complex history and culture. This trip is specially designed to broaden your understanding of a nation of stark contradictions molded by a turbulent past. Time seems to stand still as you watch vintage 1950s-era automobiles roll along cobbled streets past beautifully preserved Spanish colonial buildings. As the hub for economic and political heritage, Havana presents an ideal setting to interact with local citizens and uncover new perspectives. You will gain insight into the country's thriving arts community through discussions with independent artists and visits to performing arts schools and studios. You'll also journey beyond the spirited capital to fertile tobacco and sugar cane fields that permeate the countryside revealing a glimpse into rural Cuban life. Along the southern coastline, you'll visit the beautifully preserved colonial cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos—both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
