The Many Faces of Cuba: Across a Changing Island

March 14 - 27, 2014 (14 Days)

Double occupancy: $6,350 per person
Single supplement: $1,330
HMNH Study Leader: Ms. Martha Muñoz


Journey from eastern Cuba across the island westward, experiencing the personalities of its various colonial cities and its ecological variety. Begin in Camagüey, Cuba's largest province, which is rarely visited by foreigners. Its historic center, considered the largest and best preserved on the island, boasts many lavish churches and a twisted maze of streets designed to confound marauding pirates. Experience the opulence of Trinidad, owing to the once vibrant sugar industry. Explore nearby mountains, rivers, and canyons. Visit Pinar del Rio, a region famous for its tobacco plantations, 250-million year-old eroded karst towers rising from a tropical plain rich with vivid hibiscus and bougainvillea, tobacco plantations, and rice paddies.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!
