Yes, I recommend this program

Life-changing Experience!

From first arriving in sunny Havana I was made to feel welcome and appreciated - I'd already got to know the UK group on the flight, and we were picked up by ICAP (the host organisation) and taken straight to the CIJAM (camp).
The stay was a mixture of talks (we met veterans of the Revolution, community organisers, union representatives and political campaigners), film showings, excursions (to the AMAZING beaches, and to Santa Clara, the Museum of the Revolution, Che Guevara's memorial, Havana and loads, loads more), dancing and drinking (sometimes too much rum, but it never ran out!), and plenty of other things. We did our voluntary work in the fields nearby - early starts, but early finishes too meaning we had a chance for a nice siesta to recover. The Cuban workers we met were so friendly it was lovely, and no-one was expected to do more than they could.
The camp is basic - dorms, bunkbeds, washing facilities not worth mentioning - but this is more than made up for by the amazing atmosphere. I am desperately saving up to go again as soon as possible, and would recommend it to anyone.
