Cuba is a mystery to many travelers. So much so that many U.S. citizens are not even sure they can go there (good news: they can).

Another misconception is that Cuba is just a big island with spectacular natural beauty, a vibrant music culture, legendary nightlife, and lots of rum and cigars. In fact, Cuba is a lot more.

The country has 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites, dozens of protected nature and wildlife reserves including 6 UNESCO biosphere reserves.

The capital of Cuba, Havana, has a rich artistic legacy that includes 40 museums dedicated to everything from fine arts to chocolate.  Cuba’s ballet institute is among the finest in the world and art galleries grace the palm tree-fringed plazas in Old Havana.

Havana’s eclectic architecture shifts gracefully from colonial to Baroque to Art Deco but always manages to maintain its own unique style.

Cuba delivers what you imagine it to be, but it also surprises with the unexpected.

This presentation, with a focus on cultural immersion, will introduce you to Cuba and explain why it is a destination like no other.  

Some of the Cuba travel tips you’ll learn include:
·  How U.S. citizens can travel to Cuba legally (it’s easier than you think).
·  The best places to stay to experience cultural immersion (think, homestays).
·  Different transportation options and how to get around.
·  So what’s the deal with the dual currencies?
·  What to eat and where to eat it.   
·  What to bring back home from Cuba.  
·  The perfect Cuba itinerary for 5, 10, or more days. What cities should you focus on depending on how much time you have. From the jaw-dropping natural beauty of western Cuba to the hidden spots that make Havana so fascinating to the perfectly preserved colonial cities of central Cuba, learn what you need to know to make the most of your time.
