Source Events invites you to travel back in time and embark on unforgettable adventure to Cuba, a captivating island filled with World Heritage Sites, timeless Spanish architecture and classic cars. Experience Cuban culture the most authentic way possible — through its people. On this unique and inspiring program, get acquainted with Cubans in diverse settings, from Old Havana to Varadero.
March 19-26, 2016
The arts run through the heart and soul of Cuba which is why we have customized this people to people program to include soul stirring music, art and dance. Whether meeting leaders of the LGBT community and learning about their struggles and successes, or visiting artists studios, the people you connect with will reveal the spirit of this fascinating, culturally rich island nation long off-limits to American travellers.
Get ready for an extraordinary, unforgettable journey through Cuba’s colorful complex history via the place and people who bring it to life. You’ll dine at the finest Paladares, privately owned Cuban restaurants, and learn how Cuba’s classic mid-century American cars stay on the road.
After falling in love with Havana and a day visiting Cuba’s tobacco growing region, it’s on to Mantanzas, where you’ll connect with Cuba’s past before heading to Varadero, one of the most famous beach destinations of the Caribbean for a sunset sail and farewell dinner.
With the recent opening of embassies and thawing of diplomatic relations, Cuba is changing quickly. Now is the best time to visit with Source Events!
