If for the last five decades, you’ve admired Cuba from afar, wondering if you’d ever mambo with the Habaneros or lay eyes on Hemingway’s old haunts, now is your chance to apply for the trip of a lifetime!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the iconic art and culture of Cuba, spanning 500-plus years of colonialism, revolution, and rebirth. Community, Arts and Culture is a unique travel experience offered to members of the Busboys and Poets and Global Exchange communities.

Community, Arts and Culture promises rare opportunities to engage in meaningful discussions with our Cuban counterparts about topics ranging from gender + race relations, Afro-cuban history, Cuba’s rapidly shifting economy to healthcare, visits with prominent local artists, evening performances, Afro-Cuban music and dance, and of course. . . food!

This eight-day guided tour is limited to 20 participants, and pricing – $2,100 per traveler – is land package only. Flights will be arranged separately from Miami, FL. to Havana, Cuba.

“Habana is very much like a rose, ” said Fico Fellove in the movie The Lost City, “it has petals and it has thorns…so it depends on how you grab it. But in the end it always grabs you. “
