Cuba: A Cultural Odyssey

or many decades, few U.S. citizens were able to enjoy a Cuba travel experience. Since 2012, under a license granted by the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, our People-to-People educational exchange trip to Cuba has brought Tauck travelers face-to-face with the people of Cuba to share thoughts and insights, learn about their nation and their lives, and connect with their rich cultural heritage. For 2017, our 7-day Havana-based itinerary is joined by this 13-day trip heading across the length of the island for in-depth People-to-People exchange in Havana, San Francisco de Paula, Santa Clara, Camagüey, Holguín and more. Talk with students, teachers, artists, preservationists, musicians, community leaders... delve into Cuban education, history, music, architecture, Ernest Hemingway's life and work in Cuba, community art, agriculture and much more... dine at privately run paladares, meet Cuban families, and interact with Cubans and their culture.

Eleven days of "People-to-People" educational exchange; visits and discussions at agricultural sites, artists' studios, artisans' workshops, community arts projects, museums, dance / music schools, monuments and historic sites. Exclusive Tauck Experiences fostering meaningful cultural connections with Cuban families, artists, musicians, students, educators, agricultural workers, artisans, entrepreneurs, community leaders & others.

Why is Tauck offering travel to Cuba?
The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control has granted Tauck a license to provide People-to-People educational exchange travel to Cuba. Our 8-day small group cultural educational trips will enable travelers to meet face-to-face with local Cuban residents from different professions to share thoughts, gain knowledge, and connect with Cuba's deep cultural heritage over six days of People-to-People educational and cultural exchange. Our long experience has shown that the power of travel brings people the world over closer together. In the words of Arthur Tauck, Jr. - "It is my strongest conviction that travel is a key to world peace. By exploring new lands and new cultures, we increase our understanding of others and their understanding of us. It is fortunate that man has always had an innate need to explore the world. By facilitating this appetite, we fulfill a fundamental need of humanity and we make the world a better place.

What does "People-to-People" travel mean?
People-to-People travel is an initiative allowing U.S. citizens and others to travel to Cuba on a limited basis to participate in cultural experiences and have direct contact with the Cuban people in order to learn more about them and their culture. A highly rewarding educational experience, People-to-People travel encourages your direct engagement with the Cuban people you will meet during activities focusing on education and cultural exchange. Our experience has found Cubans to be interested in and well-informed about world events and open to frankly discussing the pros and cons of their country, as long as you are open to the same.
