Tauck has announced a new expanded and more intensive People-to-People cultural program to Cuba that explores more of the country beyond Havana. The expanded 13 day itinerary, “Cuba: Connecting with People and Culture”, includes three nights in Havana, two nights in Cayo Santa Maria, three nights in Camaguey, one night in Holguín and two nights in Santiago de Cuba.
CUBA TOUR HIGHLIGHTS
Tour highlights include visits to the:
- Village of Biran, the birthplace of Fidel and Raul Castro, and their family estate, Finca Manacas,
- Che Guevara Mausoleum in Santa Clara,
- Tomb of early champion of Cuba independence Jose Marti in Santiago de Cuba, and the
- Finca Vigia (“Lookout Farm”), Ernest Hemingway’s winter home in San Francisco de Paula and the Hotel Ambos Mundos in Havana, where Hemingway lived when he first arrived in Cuba.
Tour participants will delve into Cuban education, history, music, architecture and enjoy encounters with contemporary artists and musicians, a visit to an organic orchard, a Catamaran ride to Cayo Granma to meet local fishermen, dining at privately run paladares, and interactions with local Cubans and their culture.
