Afro-Cuban Cultural Tour

June 4 - June 11, 2017 

Havana/Santa Clara/Trinidad

We will visit and dine at the top restaurants Cuba has to offer. Visit with chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs, and learn to cook Cuban style! Cuban cuisine represents a food culture blending African, Latin American, Indigenous and Spanish influences. Cuba’s food story is a melting pot of those vibrant cultures that once came through its ports. Rice, beans, peppers, fresh greens, fish, chicken, pork, and tropical fruit from across the Caribbean come together in stews, on the grill, and on your plate.

Depending on game schedules we will see powerhouse teams such as the Industrials Leones of Havana as well as amateur ball of young and up and coming talent.


Cuba boasts an unprecedented 100% adult literacy rate according to UNICEF and, until recently, the most doctors per capita in the world. On this tour we visit schools of every grade level and meet and talk with professors and students and learn about Cuba’s unprecedented educational system.
