Here we are in the extraordinary city at the epicenter of Cuban life and culture. We’ll get right to the heart of things with an exploration of Habana Vieja (Old Havana). Our tour takes us among the four main squares from the colonial era, including the beautifully restored Plaza de Armas and the Plaza de Catedral, with its gem of a cathedral. You’ll also be able to witness for yourself the changes taking place in Havana today, including the restoration of long-neglected colonial façades and the opening of bright new shops and restaurants. We’ll also tour some of Havana’s landmarks including the malecón, the University of Havana, and Vedado, with a stop at Revolution Square. Cultural Discoveries: On a special People-to-People visit, discover the amazing accomplishments of a group of Havana’s homegrown community of social activists, artists, and entrepreneurs. We'll also learn about Muraleando, a community arts project in Havana, and attend a private rehearsal by the Malpaso Dance Company and have the opportunity to meet the dancers. Afterward, we’ll meander toward the San Jose Craft Market to shop for souvenirs and meet local artisans. Tonight, step back in time to 1950’s Havana with an exclusive private performance by Buena Vista Social Club members, the Afro-Cuban All Stars, and Grammy winners.
