What you'll do
Starting from the understanding of the basic historical roots of contemporary Cuba, we will discover a city, a country that at times seems totally indecipherable to the stranger. We will live almost four hours of intense and animated talk about economy, society, politics and culture, among other topics, while we enter inside a universe that is beyond the reach of ordinary tourists. Going through different neighborhoods and experiencing our customs, we promise you an approach to the typical life of the people of Havana. In just a few hours, you will understand and feel first-hand the unique successes and setbacks of our island, gaining an understanding of why and how Cubans dance every day at our own beat. To finish, we will visit a local´s house to interact directly with the community. There, our friends will share their vision about Cuban reality, complementing our explanations with vivid memories and funny stories.
