PLEASE NOTE: The 2016 Cuba: A Cultural Odyssey itinerary detailed herein pertains to the following departure dates only: September 18, October 2, October 16, November 13, November 27, December 11 and December 18, 2016. For many decades, few U.S. citizens were able to enjoy a Cuba travel experience. Since 2012, under a license granted by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, our People-to-People educational exchange trips to Cuba have brought Tauck travelers face-to-face with the people of Cuba to share thoughts and insights, learn about their nation and their lives, and connect with their rich cultural heritage. For 2016, joining our 7-day Havana-based itinerary is this 13-day trip heading across the length of the island for in-depth People-to-People exchange in Havana, San Francisco de Paula, Santa Clara, Camagüey, Holguín and more. Talk with students, teachers, artists, preservationists, musicians, community leaders… delve into Cuban education, history, music, architecture, Ernest Hemingway's life and work in Cuba, community art, agriculture and cigar production, and much more... dine at privately run paladares, meet Cuban families, and interact with Cubans and their culture.
