Imagine yourself on a rooftop terrace in Old Havana, meeting with Cuban artists and educators, listening to rumba and salsa, and experiencing the energy of an exceptional moment in Cuba's history.
Time and time again, alumni have asked Princeton Journeys to offer an experiential travel experience specifically for a younger demographic. We've heard you and we are excited to add "Cuba X" to the 2019 roster. This four day People-to-People adventure will give the young and young-at-heart an opportunity to reflect on Cuba's remarkable history, burgeoning present, and fascinating future.
Expect daily opportunities to converse and engage with Cuban people from all walks of life who embody the richness of unique and proud traditions in music, art, culture, and history. Engage with leading intellectuals, on-the-ground change-makers, and up-and-coming artists from acclaimed galleries. Share ideas with representatives from various sectors of Cuban society to gain a deeper understanding of the transitions the Cuban people are experiencing today.
