A mere 90 miles off the coast of Miami, Cuba was once a popular destination for American tourists until politics, revolution and international intrigue got in the way. Today the island nation is a mirage in the minds of most travelers, a mysterious yet romantic place where cigars, antique cars, baseball and a bearded dictator loom largest. Cuba is place of dichotomies that leave your mind spinning: iconic revolutionaries and disillusioned expatriates, white sand beaches and industrial yards, decaying infrastructure and a highly educated population. The paradox of its proximity and isolation seems only to add to Cuba’s charm.
We are thrilled to offer a program that will see our participants digging deep into the history and modern reality of Cuba. We will meet with local community and government leaders, visit with farmers, hike along mountain trails, dance salsa and much more. Viva Cuba!

Fun Fact: The only cars that Cuban citizens can own legally are cars created and bought before 1959.

The homestay was one of the greatest, most memorable experiences I have ever had. It took no more than two or three days for everything to click and it eventually felt so right that I could easily call it home. The overall amount of love and caring from my family was overwhelming and the feelings of belonging I had in the village is impossible to describe and something I’ll never forget. The homestay affected me in many positive ways and the only thing that could have possibly made it better was if I could have stayed longer.
