A unique music and culturally focused People-to-People exchange. Cuba is a unique world of open and friendly people living in a very vibrant culture. We suggest you leave behind anything and everything you may have heard about Cuba, traveling with an open mind in an attempt to understand Cuban politics, economy, and culture through the eyes of Cubans themselves. Global Exchange in partnership with AC Journeys, invites you to join us in exploring Cuban reality while enjoying the renowned events of the Havana Jazz Festival and private performances along with meeting local artists and musicians.
We’ll also visit with an urban planner, we’ll have an exchange with a Cuban economist, we’ll make a trip outside of Havana to see Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs), and we’ll visit a sustainable mountain community to learn about their preservation efforts.
