Activities for La Habana, Cuba
The programmed field trips and activities are an integral part of the intellectual and cultural experience and are included in the program fees. These excursions include walking tours, museum visits, and guest lectures coupled with cultural activities and meals to provide you the opportunity to interact with Cubans and learn firsthand their perspective of our common histories. Dates and locations may change at the discretion of the Resident Director. Individual courses have field trips, performances, or outings built in to complement what you explore in class. These, too, are also included.
Possible visits include the Fine Arts Museum, Malecón, the José Marti Institute, and the Guanabacoa Museum, activities and interactions with local students, and, of course, experiencing the cuisine, music, and dancing for which Cuba is famous. You’ll also visit a tobacco plantation, cigar factory, and a beach resort to experience the full range of Cuba’s agricultural history and present tourism economies, as well as discovering Cuba’s natural beauty.
