Kathy and Will, owners of Skads Travel, will serve as concierge hosts for their 3rd people-to-people cultural exchange, Discover Cuba, a personally-escorted tour, departing December 1 - 8, 2015.
Discover the enduring beauty and optimism of the Cuban people and come to cherish their customs, from traditional farming and religious practices to a culture of world-class art and music.
Departing from Miami, travel only 90 miles from the United States (45 minutes!) yet feel a world away. See classic American cars cruising down the highway, or farmers plowing their fields powered by oxen. No McDonalds or Starbucks here!
Stay at the four-star Melia Habana Hotel, located on the waterfront outside of Havana. Daily buffet-style breakfast, lunches at local restaurants, and most dinners are included. The quality of accommodations, food and service is excellent.
Travel around the city and countryside in a modern air-conditioned motor coach. An American-based tour manager, and a local, expert Cuban guide will teach about the islands history and life in Cuba.
The highlights are many: Revolution Museum, Bocoy Rum Factory, a cigar factory, San Jose Craft Market, National Museum of Fine Arts, Colon Cemetery, Cuban Institute of Music, home/studio of Jose Fuster ("Picasso of Cuba"). Visit Finca Vigia, the home of famed writer Ernest Hemingway, and marvel at the beautiful old world charm of Havana, once a thriving vacation spot for Americans in the 40’s and 50’s.
Capture the spirit of this incredible journey!
