By special permission of the U.S. Dept of Treasury, Princeton Journeys can offer Americans the chance to interact with Cubans in Cuba.

Princeton Journeys is pleased to announce that, by special permission of the U.S Department of the Treasury, the Office of the Alumni Association has been awarded a license to offer to our alumni and friends educational exchanges in Cuba, a country long off-limits to American travelers. Please join your fellow Princetonians October 20-27, 2012, on a reprise of our sold-out March program, in this interactive Journey.

The Office of the Alumni Association has certified that each traveler on our programs will have a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between the travelers and individuals in Cuba. So, 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, youthful University students, talented musicians from the National School of Music, 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 Cubans are experiencing today.
