Cuba Now

7 Nights/8 Days    034-hotel-nacional-v3.jpg

Cuba Now introduces you to the island with experiences that provide insight into what’s happening socially, economically, and politically.  Cuba has been off-limits to most U.S. travelers for more than 50 years, so this trip has a lot of catching up to do! Traveling to Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad, you’ll get up close and personal with Cubans from all walks of life and have a chance to learn how relations with the U.S. affect their daily lives. (Photo by Cynthia Carris Alonso)
