Cuba: Connecting with People and Culture

2014 Prices From $4,990 for 8 Days - Tauck World Discovery

For decades, few U.S. citizens have been able to experience Cuba travel. But the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has now granted Tauck a license to provide People-to-People educational exchange travel to Cuba. Meet face-to-face with local residents from different professions, share thoughts, gain knowledge, and connect with Cuba’s cultural heritage through Cuba: Connecting with People and Culture. Around key themes of Cuban culture and the arts, education, entrepreneurism, agriculture and the spiritual side of Cuba, travelers interact directly with the people of Cuba. Meet Cuban students and teachers… learn about Ernest Hemingway’s Cuba … discuss art and private enterprise at the studios of community artists… visit with farmers to talk about agrarian reform and organic farming… listen to local Cuban musicians… interact with members of charitable organizations about their work… learn about Afro-Cuban religious traditions… have dinner at a paladar (a small, privately operated Cuban restaurant)… and connect with Cuba and Cubans on Tauck's cultural exchange.

The Tauck Difference

I just wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed the Tauck People-to-People cultural exchange program to Cuba and how impressed I was with the quality of the Tauck Director… I will say that the rigorous and busy schedule we were on really did mean that this was much more of a cultural exchange than a tour (although this was still a lot of fun). The TD did a fantastic job of managing the flow of people and organizing the various events… combining both a sense of humor and a strong knowledge base of Cuban and Latin American culture that made the trip really enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
