On the brink of incredible change and off limits to Americans for over 50 years, the culturally rich country of Cuba holds a deep fascination for us all. With Creole, African and Spanish influences, today’s Cuba is woven with strong cultural rhythms strongly rooted in their respective traditions. Scintillating and sensuous Havana will be our base and the highly sought after historical Hotel Nacional our home for the week. Together with our expert guide and private driver, we will explore this gorgeous city, its center a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its stunning architecture and vibrant sounds and flavors of everyday Cuban life. We’ll enjoy a daily yoga practice, meet with local artists, attend concerts, learn a few Cuban salsa moves, visit museums and shop in local markets. Over the course of the week we may also indulge in a mojito or two as we enjoy the range of Cuba’s cuisine—from humble home cooking served in hospitable family paladars to sampling some of Havana’s greatest restaurants. Our adventure will culminate with a scenic drive to the famous white sands and Caribbean waters, where we will unwind in a day of fun in the sun before our last celebratory night in Havana. Join us on a unique journey to this most fascinating country.
