Cuba is a place where art, music, and architecture are like no other. Talk with some local influential artists in their homes, see their personal galleries and discuss their works.

Havana has a thriving performing art scene pulsing with life, color and energy. Take a salsa dance lesson from a renowned dance company then relax with a mojito and a show at a local club or spend the evening dancing away to the music of the internationally acclaimed Buena Vista Club. We will explore Fusterlandia, a mosaic filled neighborhood created by the accomplished artist José Rodríguez Fuster, known in the art world as the “Picasso of the Caribbean”, and enjoy a luncheon hosted by the artist himself. Come see why Ernest Hemingway was so in love with this beautiful island while we visit his residence and spend some time at his favorite hangouts on this incredibly inspiring and colorful tour.
jewish history and culture
You will learn about the rich history of Jews in Cuba dating back to Christopher Columbus. We will visit the three local synagogues and hear from some members and their leaders about the Jewish community from the revolution to present day. Dinner at a couple of the synagogues provides a unique opportunity to see and interact with the people and find out what it means to be a Jew in modern Cuba. The Holocaust Museum, funded by Stephen Spielberg, and housed in the Sephardic synagogue is a touching and inspiring tribute to those who perished. A visit to the Ashkenazi and Sephardi cemeteries in the town of Guanabacoa will teach of the founding by Americans in 1906 and will certainly be an experience you won’t soon forget. The rolling green countryside of Matanzas and the crystal clear blue waters of the beaches at Varadero offer breathtaking sights. Here you can mix and mingle with the locals while you explore this beautiful island. Join us for a trip to a land rich in Jewish history and the hope for the future of the Cuban Jewish people.
