A trip to Cuba is like a step back in time, with its colonial buildings, classic American cars, and oxen pulling wooden plows through the fields. The travel landscape is rapidly evolving as the government continues to ease its restrictions. 

In Havana, a thriving artistic culture transforms African, Spanish, and American influences into a distinct national identity. Witness Cubans’ creativity, resourcefulness, and friendly nature in spite of economic hardship. Consider the strengths of a society committed to providing education and healthcare to all citizens, and see a tightly controlled economy face challenges and opportunities as entrepreneurs emerge. Outside Havana, fertile fields produce tobacco and sugar to fuel the country’s economy. Here you can examine firsthand U.S.-Cuban history and the impact of the U.S. embargo.

Beyond its cultural legacy, Cuba has a wealth of natural resources, including the distinctive limestone hills known as mogotes, unspoiled coral reefs, miles of beaches, two UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites (Alejandro de Humboldt National Park and Desembarco del Granma National Park), and a Ramsar Site (Zapata wetland), among others.
