Cuba is hypnotic – from the sultry, seductive streets of Old Havana, to the crystal-clear Caribbean waters, the music, art & dance literally pouring from the streets. It’s a country unlike any other, and one that sits almost preserved in time. Imagine yourself standing on the historic malecon as a parade of vintage, colorful 1950s American cars sweep by. Tuck into heavenly cuisine at one of the many local paladares – private restaurants created right in people’s homes, or sweat it out dancing salsa until the sun comes up. Cuba, and Havana in particular, is captivating, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the journey with you.

MEET CUBAN ENTREPRENEURS
A very special part of this particular journey will be the opportunity for our traveling entrepreneurs to meet and connect with local Cuban women entrepreneurs. These women have started businesses, including everything from organic farms and graphic arts, to dance companies and restaurants. As part of traveling legally to Cuba from the United States, each itinerary must include daily cultural exchanges. What better way to do this than to meet, connect, and bond with women from Cuba who are cutting against the grain and forging out to take ownership of their businesses, and their lives.
