nation as well as its lesser known gems including its world-famous cities, small fishing villages, vast

owned by locals, where travelers can indulge in homemade farm-to-table dishes prepared with
island-grown ingredients. Musical performances and art expositions, plus visits with farmers, craftsmen,

Join us to have an in-depth adventure in Havana…Once known as the playground of the rich and
famous, Cuba’s capital beckons with its acclaimed Spanish colonial architecture, famed watering
holes and family-run restaurants, live music and percussion that wakens the dancing spirit, plus the
coast-hugging Malecón overlooking the seemingly never-ending sea, old world traditions and warm,
welcoming people that easily captivate your soul.
Further along your travels in Cuba…Enjoy some time in the colonial city of Trinidad, founded in 1514,
a well preserved UNESCO World Heritage Site situated between the mountains and the sea. Visit
Camagüey, Cuba’s third-largest city, where a labyrinth of winding streets and alleys spill into public
plazas in this first of seven villages founded by the Spaniards. Experience Cienfuegos, known as
Cuba’s “Pearl of the South.” Cross as many of Varadero’s 17 bridges as you can while visiting this
seaside town. Explore the Afro-Cuban capital of Santiago de Cuba, the birthplace of some of the

celebrations in July.
Across this magical country, you can take in expansive city views and breathtaking natural beauty;
