Cuba & Africa

Our day starts with MEDITATION & LIGHT MOVEMENT followed by our first ANCESTRAL CONNECTION WORKSHOP before we salsa our way to our own private CUBAN DANCE lesson where our professors are the world-famous dancers of the Tropicana Cabaret!

Next we'll learn how Cuba's African heritage has shaped its culture and present-day life from dance to music to religious beliefs. A Cuban soldier who fought in Angola alongside Che Guevara presents on CUBAN SOLIDARITY MISSIONS and how Cuba & African Nations have a long-standing positive relationship.

We’ll end our day under the palm trees with snow white sand under our feet and lobster at our tables as we watch the sunset at our BEACH BBQ.


Matanzas & The Stolen Tribes of Africa

We depart on a journey an hour away from Havana to Matanzas to the San Severino Castle Museum Slave Route where we’ll talk to the director about the SLAVE TRADE and how the majority of enslaved peoples arrived here to this very town.

Following this experience you will meet with the first female president of Yoruba who will teach you the basics of LUCUMI/SANTERIA and how it has preserved African culture, language, rituals, and customs on the island. The Grammy-winning folkloric group, Muñequitos de Matanzas, will also perform the DANCE OF THE ORISHAS to help you learn about the different gods and goddesses that rule Cuba’s natural elements

Then you’ll get to dancing yourself! You’ll learn the ceremonial dance called the RUMBA, which is very important to Afro Cubans.


Cuban Countryside & Tobacco

Viñales is a small town where the landscapes take your breath away. You'll be welcomed into a typical Cuban family home and enjoy a fresh, homemade meal leading to our FOOD ECONOMICS activity. Learn how sanctions have affected Cuban access to food and the strange laws created as a result.

Our next lesson is on a HORSEBACK RIDE as we trot through the farms of Cuba to learn about ECO FARMING. Here is where you’ll learn the tobacco growing process as you try your own complimentary cigar dipped in honey and sip mojitos at one of the best views Cuba has to offer.

Sunrises & Pig Roasts

Our day begins with an optional sunrise hike to the valley where we see the sunrise, watch the valley explode with a myriad of colors, and participate in YOGA & MEDITATION to rejuvenate our minds, bodies, and spirts.

The rest of our day is open for us to explore the town on our own. Go shopping, zip lining, or enjoy other natural activities.

We’ll celebrate our time together in a CLOSING CEREMONY and dinner with a traditional Cuban pig roast (don’t worry vegetarians, there will be plenty for you to eat).


Our journey ends in tropical Cuba but we’re sure you’ll continue on your own path with the memories made during your experience!
