This is your chance to be one of the first to explore this "forbidden country" and see a side of Cuba that few have ever seen... Travel for 3 months combining service, cultural immersion, and adventure along with a group of 12 other students committed to the internal and external exploration our programs offer. Throughout your travels you’ll share meals, live among different peoples, and build meaningful relationships with local people along the way. Explore Baracoa and Santiago in what is know as Cuba's "Wild East", hike through the Sierra Madre, dance in the streets of Havana, learn first hand about sustainable agriculture and how it helped save the country from starvation while volunteering on a sustainable agriculture cooperative. Experience the culture first hand through home stays in Piñar Del Rio and learn the rhythms of the country off the beaten track in Korimakao.
This program is for those adventurous, inquisitive and dynamic people ready for a challenge.
