Trapped in a time warp as a result of the Cuban revolution in 1959 and subsequent economic embargo, there is nowhere else like Cuba. On this journey we visit the great historic cities of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, where 1950s Chevys cruise past in a range of vivid colours; a contrast to the pastel hued architecture of smaller colonial gems such as Trinidad and Camaguey. The stunning natural beauty and fascinating history is only outshone by the Cuban people, incredibly warm and friendly, opening up their homes and their hearts to visitors. Che Guevara and Fidel Castro are still venerated, but times are changing. The embargo has been lifted, it's time to visit before the old Cuba is gone forever!
SPECIAL EXPERIENCES: • Cooking class and salsa lesson; Dive into Cuban culture - take part in a hands on cooking class followed by a fun dance class to learn the quintissential Cuban dance, the salsa. • Dine at some of our favourite paladares; Tucked away in side streets, you will visit some of World Journey's favourite paladares, traditional family run restaurants. They serve excellent seafood and delicious traditional Cuban/Spanish dishes. • Be swept up in the rhythm of Cuba; Music pervades the island of Cuba! Jazz is very popular and live music often seeps out of town squares. Enjoy some wonderful evenings listening to Cuban music made famous by the renowned Buena Vista Social Club.
