Cuba Study Tours Unveiled by Authentic Cuba Travel for School Year 2014

As students enter a new school year and many North American schools, colleges, and universities plan student programming for the year, Authentic Cuba Travel unveils Cuba Study Tours for students and educators alike.
TORONTO, ON, August 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As students enter a new school year and many North American schools, colleges, and universities plan student programming for the year, Authentic Cuba Travel unveils Cuba Study Tours at for students and educators alike. To kick off the Cuba student tours for the new school year, educators have an opportunity to explore Cuba with a free pre-departure familiarization tours, or Cuba Explorer Tours, prior to taking their students on the Cuba school trips. Travel resources are also available to help educational professionals plan and coordinate the Cuba tours for their schools and students all in effort to bring the most authentic educational experience to the students.
A growing number of students are choosing to forgo the typical spring break vacations and instead opting to participate in alternative spring breaks that are educational, cultural, and even offers an opportunity to be civically engaged and do well. As such, Authentic Cuba Travel offers Spring Break Cuba Tours for 2014 that presents a life changing educational experience like none other for an authentic immersion in Cuban culture, the opportunity to learn about historical and political influences on Cuba over the years, and the perfect backdrop to indulge in the natural beauty and landscape of the largest Caribbean island. The eight-day Cuba student trips offer a culturally rich and dynamic itinerary with a guided and fully escorted tour that includes volunteer work, peer-to-peer interaction with Cuban students, visits to various cultural sites, and even water activities to enjoy Cuba's beautiful beaches.
As a compliment to the Spring Break Cuba Trips, students and educational professionals alike also have the option of participating in a two-week Spanish immersion program at the University of Havana. What better way to accelerate learning the Spanish language than to do so in a classroom setting in Cuba while also learning about the history, culture, and richness of the Cuban people. Truly an experience of a lifetime, the student tours are as authentic as can get with the experience to travel Cuba like a local and live amongst the people for two weeks. In addition to the daily Spanish classes at the University, the itinerary includes escorted walking tours through Havana, visits to cultural and art museums, an opportunity to experience the uniqueness of Cuban music and cuisine, and even salsa dancing with Cubans.
Cuba remains a big mystery and has been largely unchartered territory over the past few decades. The Cuba study trips are a unique opportunity for students to gain worldly perspective, expand their horizons, understand culture and history, and even be inspired and optimistic about their future. The experience and reputation that Authentic Cuba Travels has earned over the years of providing guided tours to Cuba makes it possible for students to get the most competitive and affordable Cuba tour prices on the market. More importantly, the tours are safe and are fully escorted 24/7 from the moment students land in Cuba until the time they depart.
Since space is limited for the Cuba education tours, educators should begin planning and coordinating their tours now that the school year is underway. The familiarization tours are a perfect opportunity for educators to become acquainted with the Cuba tours prior to bringing their student groups and are being offered complimentary to select educators for a limited time only.
Furthermore, educators earn Educator Loyalty Points (ELP) for each student that travels as part of the tour, and the points ultimately add up to join any Cuba tours for free. Additional resources offered to educators include a free custom website for your school trip to Cuba to provide the students and their parents a wealth of information and resources in preparation for the tour. Fundraising ideas are also suggested to help students fund the cost of the tour, and because we understand parent's concerns while their kids are traveling, updates are offered to parents every 48 hours while the students are in Cuba.
The main Spring Break Cuba Education Tour is from April 13-20, 2014, and alternative dates are also available. Due to demand, it is highly advised that Cuba study travel is booked as soon as possible since spaces are limited per tour. Space is also limited for educators who want to take advantage of the free familiarization tour and must express interest as early as possible. Once the school or university has approved the Cuba Study Tours for their students, the agents at Authentic Cuba Travel works closely with the educators to plan and coordinate every detail of the tour.
Spaces for each tour are limited, and reservations are being accepted now. For more information and to book, visit or call (877) 280-2054 in North America or (647) 351-8191 worldwide.
Bella Travel Group Ltd. (Authentic Cuba Travel/ Hello Cuba Travel) is a full service travel agency based in Toronto, Canada that organizes cultural, educational and adventure tours for schools, NGOs, business and community groups.
Even though each year nearly 2 million tourists travel to Cuba, they hardly have the chance to get to know the authentic Cuba that lies beyond the confines of all-inclusive full-packed tourist resorts. Once back home, those travelers realize they have hardly "traveled" to Cuba. It might have been a nice and low cost package vacation from the cold weather, but they do not know much about Cuba's culture and its people.
Authentic Cuba Travel votes for a different kind of tourism for those travelers who demand more from their vacations. With over 40 fully escorted Cuba tours announced for 2014, ranging from educational and cultural to arts and architecture and festivals and events, Authentic Cuba Travel captures the Cuban identity that defines the island as a unique Caribbean nation.
