As a People to People trip there will be lots of opportunities to interact with the Cuban people, as well as soaking up the Cuban history and culture.

The group will stay in the 4* Presidente Hotel near the Malecón, walk Old Havana, join Cuban families on the ramparts of the Morro Castle for the cañonazo ceremony, visit the small towns of Regla near Havana and Las Terrazas in Pinar del Rio. Walk the streets of Old Havana. Meet artists and children involved in art projects for those with disabilities, visit organic and urban community gardens, talk with social scientists and university professors about how they see the direction in which Cuba is going. Explore the Pinar del Rio countryside, visit the Theological Seminary and the community projects in which they are involved. Go to nightclubs and concerts, -- A non stop week of education and contact so hard to sum up in a paragraph!

Yes, it is true. People to People licenses are being held up by pure venomous politics. In fact, for the organizations we work with, this is the last People to People trip until their licenses are renewed. We think depending on the outcome of the election and the might of the Cuban Right, the license renewals will come through. But this a moment to call your Congress people and urge them to push People to People travel forward, as well as the right of all people to travel.
