Cuba – Celebration of Arts & Culture

Enjoy Cuba’s vibrant music and arts scene. Connect with Cuban artists and dancers while discovering its cultural heritage.


The Place and The People

Cuba is a nation of vibrant music, color, feeling and tastes. While the Buena Vista Social Club popularized Cuban music, and Anthony Bourdain brought its restaurants to television, the island has a long tradition of supporting art and culture.  Its musicians have fueled the global music scene and its artists continue to produce world-class paintings.

Discover first hand how this rich pageant of African, European, and North American influences come together to create a cultural scene unlike any other. However, what travelers remember most are the passionate residents who are excited to share their culture – and you’ll immediately get swept up in the simple pleasures they practice with passion and pride.

 


What You'll Do

Cuba is synonymous with art & music. Just walk through the streets of Havana where the sounds of jazz and salsa echo out of cafes and artwork adorns the century old buildings.

Uncover Cuba’s vibrant art scene with a visit to a Havana neighborhood transformed by street art, visit renowned Cuban artists and take in a private performance from the Cienfuegos Choir. Experience a memorizing display of talent from the Habana Compas Dance troupe, explore Havana’s famous Museum of Fine Arts and take a step into the past walking through Old Havana – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every interaction is guaranteed to be engaging and insightful.

What You'll See

This 8-day journey begins in Havana, the capital city of fascinating history and charming architecture. From there, progress east to the colonial town of Trinidad, where you can soak in the vibrant arts scene. This town is so unique that it’s earned UNESCO’s designation as a World Heritage Site.

For history buffs, a stop at the Bay of Pigs is essential for viewing the past through the Cuban perspective. This trip even includes a visit to the town of Cienfuegos — giving you an opportunity to meet with community groups and local residents so you can gain insight into life in a small Cuban town.
