Havana & Santiago - April 12 - April 22
SANTIAGO de CUBA
Set on the seaside, near the island's eastern tip, Santiago de Cuba is the country's second-largest city. Vibrant, tropical, and often sweltering, Santiago is the country's liveliest cultural showpiece, outside of Havana. With a population just under a half-million people, Santiago is a world apart, with a unique history and rhythms all its own. The city has produced some of Cuba's greatest contemporary musicians as well as several of its most stalwart revolutionaries, and it has served as the stage for some of the most storied events in Cuba's modern history. As the capital of the old Oriente province, it has the largest Afro-Cuban population in Cuba and a resolutely Afro-Caribbean feel that distinguishes it from the rest of Cuba.

DEPARTURE CITY: Miami & New York
A unique destination and one of the most famous cities in the world, Havana is a living time capsule of times past, from its Spanish colonial history to the enduring legacy of the Revolution. An intensely atmospheric city, it contains some superb architectural gems and many other cultural and historical sights. Havaneros (natives of Havana) love their city and it's not difficult to see the reasons. Amid the warm crystalline waters of the sparkling Caribbean, over five hundred years of roller-coaster history have conspired to create one of Latin America's most electric and culturally unique societies. Havana is a one-of-a-kind city. As the Caribbean's largest and most vivacious metropolitan areas, its romantic atmosphere and infectious energy are the stuff of legend.
One of the world's most fascinating destinations, Cuba has something for everyone, from its stunning colonial architecture, UNESCO preserved habitats, breathtaking scenery and a wealth of virgin tropical beaches. Much of Cuban culture is definitely African in origin, it's music, folklore, dancing, much of the food. Music is in the feet of every Cuban. The African origin has given Cuban music a prestige recognized the world over. Today the island contains priceless survivals of African cultures. In addition, Cuba hosts a number of other Diaspora communities from the neighboring islands.
