Habana Cienfuegos/Trinidad Habana
Each private program could possibly have a Jewish, Birding, Music & Dance, Environmental, or other theme added.
Each of our programs give the participant a real people-to-people experience while seeing this amazing county first hand and the new freedoms, business opportunities and changes that have happened for the Cuban people over the years. We give participants the ability to forgo traditional hotels, if they prefer, and stay with the Cuban people. We were one of the first to start staying in Private Homes over 4 years ago.
