Travelers will immediately notice a difference compared to traditional escorted vacations as this trip takes cultural immersion to a new level, offering travelers the unparalleled opportunity to peek within the borders of a once isolated nation.”

Throughout the trip, passengers will dance to the sounds of traditional Cuban music, experience a hands-on lesson in cooking authentic Cuban food, learn about the historic architecture in Cuba, visit the exotic botanical gardens in Cienfuegos and take Spanish lessons at the University of Havana. All packages begin in Miami with a chartered flight to Cienfuegos where travelers will stay for three nights followed by four nights in Havana.
