Cuba. A magical place. For the past 60 years it has been a land of mystery to Americans. But that is changing. And Essential History Expeditions’ Cuba tours enable guests to explore this jewel of the Caribbean.
From the revolutions of Jose Marti and Fidel Castro. To the writings of Reinaldo Arenas, Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, Alejo Carpentier and Ernest Hemingway. From the art of Wilfredo Lam, Manuel Mendive and Alberto Korda. From the hot music scene of Havana and Santiago with the son, mambo, salsa and more to classical guitar and piano. From white sandy beaches and the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean to soaring green mountain jungles. From small hamlets to towns of still-perfect 18th century colonial architecture to modern metropolis. We will explore all this and much more.
Our Cuba tour includes eight days and seven nights of fully guided people-to-people contact filled with history, culture, music, food, in cities, towns and beautiful rugged countryside and pristine beaches.
Essential History Expeditions has now led nearly 20 tours throughout Cuba since the easing of travel restrictions in December 2014. Some of these tours were larger groups with a set itinerary. Many, however, were private tours with customized itineraries.
This Cuba tour is predicated, of course, on US policy once again opening up travel to Cuba.
