Until recently, few U.S. citizens have been able to experience Cuba travel. But under a licensed granted by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, Tauck has been providing People-to-People educational exchange Cuba tours since 2012. Meet face-to-face with local residents from different professions, share thoughts, gain knowledge, and connect with Cuba’s cultural heritage on our 7-day, Havana-based Cuba: Connecting with People and Culture. Around key themes of Cuban culture and the arts, history, architecture, entrepreneurism, agriculture, baseball and more, travelers interact directly with the people of Cuba. Meet Cuban students, teachers, architects, artisans, dancers, musicians, coaches and ballplayers… learn about Ernest Hemingway’s Cuba… discuss art and private enterprise at the studios of community artists… visit with agricultural workers to talk about agrarian reform and organic farming… interact with members of community and charitable organizations about their work… learn about Cuban cultural traditions… have meals at paladares (small, privately operated Cuban restaurants)… and connect with Cuba on Tauck's cultural exchange.
