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.
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. You’ll also attend a thrilling performance by the extraordinary Havana Queens, a groundbreaking dance troupe founded in 2012. Your introduction to Havana’s thriving art scene then continues with a visit to the lively Almacenes San Jose Craft Market, where you can browse among the offerings and chat with skilled artisans. The market relocated a few years ago to a restored warehouse located on a pier.
This evening, as our Cuban adventure comes to a close and we cast off for Miami, take in the view of Havana’s skyline, including the dramatic El Morro fortress that watches over the harbor entrance.
