Yes, I recommend this program

The best cuban experience!

I really enjoyed my time in Cuba and I have Jakera to thank for that! The staff makes you feel very welcome and you get to be a part of the Jakera family very quickly. As a solo traveler, it's so nice to feel that you have people around you that you can trust and also have fun with. Leonel and Leandro are super kind and helpful, they will help you with anything you need. The rest of the staff are also very nice and as a tourist it's nice to get to know and spend time with the local people. I also had so much fun with the other "clients" that I met there. I enjoyed the spanish lessons I had with Laritza, she really pushed me to talk spanish and gave me the confidence that i needed. I would absolutley recommend others to visit Jakera Cuba!!

What would you improve about this program?
I really enjoyed the cultural walks and i wish that some of them would be longer. I felt that some of them were too short while others were perfect when it comes to time, the locations and the information the guide would give us.
Also, i found the dancing teachers at Casa del son to be unprofessional with the girls. That was upseting for me to hear since I was serious and actually was there to learn the dance. Some girls were offended and didn't want to go back there.
