Take part in this immersive program that reveals the profound influence of the African diaspora throughout Cuba. Stay for seven nights in a privately owned boutique hotel in Havana’s beautiful Vedado neighborhood. Daily excursions will broaden your perspective of Cuba while benefiting and supporting the local people. Enjoy Havana’s lively jazz and art scenes, ride in a vintage convertible along the Malecón seashore, visit rural Cuba, and discover the storied Afro-Cuban roots of Matanzas, Guanabacoa and Regla. Tour the National Museum of Fine Arts focusing on Afro-Cuban artists. Experience Cuba through meaningful exchanges with entrepreneurs, dancers, artists, community leaders and more. Visit Matanza’s “slaves’ route” and see the Monument to the Slaves’ Rebellion for a glimpse into Cuba’s African legacy. Plus, local experts add another enriching layer with discussions about compelling topics.
