Cuba. Culturally rich, politically controversial, and filled with endless beauty, the name conjures up a place of mystery. It’s a little rough around the edges, but alive with a warm and exuberant spirit, from the glimmering bays to the vibrant people and the legendary music scene. It’s right on our doorstep, but remains almost off-limits to all but a select few. That is, until now. Here’s your chance to legally travel to Cuba as part of a fully licenced educational exchange program, with thanks to our friends at International Expeditions. All you need to qualify is a valid US passport and a desire to immerse yourself in every aspect of Cuban culture. From the elegant Cienfuegos to the music-infused streetlife of Havana, this trip reveals the rich culture and heritage of this complex country.
