In a country that has just recently opened for US travel, Rustic Pathways is thrilled to now have programs running in Cuba. This Caribbean nation’s vibrant colors and rich culture will be sure to catch your eye. In Cuba you will have the opportunity to learn about the history of Havana and Trinidad, work with farmers and park rangers on issues such as sustainable farming and reforestation, and learn the traditional dances of the island, including the salsa and rumba.
“My time in Cuba has been full of dancing, laughter, and changes in perspective. It’s our closest neighbor in the Caribbean, yet has been isolated from us for years. Cubans want to know us as much as we want to know them, and time has finally brought that to fruition. I’m excited for students to learn from the Cuban people and share experiences.”
--Harry Alvarez, Cuba Country Director
