Journey from the eastern tip of Cuba across the island westward,
experiencing the personalities of its various colonial cities and its
ecological variety. Begin in Santiago, whose close links to Jamaica and
Haiti, and infusion of French planters and merchants, created a rich
racial mixture evident in the music, art, and architecture of the city. In
Baracoa, learn about the legacy of cocoa in the region. Experience the
opulence of Trinidad, owing to the once vibrant sugar industry.
Explore nearby mountains, rivers, and canyons. Tour Havana's
architecture and urban gardens, and experience its art and music.
Meet Cubans, and gain a first-hand perspective of Cuba's natural and
cultural wealth and the challenges facing its citizens. Life is beginning
to change in Cuba; there is little doubt that it is headed for a different
future—if you have been thinking about visiting but have not yet
done so, now is the time! Optional extension to Pinar del Río.
