Though just 90 miles from the United States, Cuba remains a mystery to most Americans. Now, during an in-depth visit, travelers will experience this enigmatic island through the eyes of its people. We are delighted to offer alumni from Dartmouth an opportunity to gain an insider’s perspective on Cuba during a period of  momentous change. In Havana, connect with locals from all walks of life, including artists, diplomats, and museum  directors. On a walking tour, experience Old Havana’s charming squares, eclectic architecture, and  cobblestone streets. As part of this people-to-people  exchange, travelers are expected to participate fully in the scheduled activities, which have been designed to provide immersion in the arts and culture of Cuba. We hope to welcome you on this  educational adventure to discover Cuba’s  history, culture, and cuisine.
