Pre Conference Tour.

Dates

Join us on this amazing road trip across the country to see the REAL Cuba, not yet tainted by mass tourism. Tropical scenery; laid-back towns; day-today country life; living history of colonial occupation, slavery, revolution and economic difficulties with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the US trade embargoes. You can’t help but feel that the music you will hear everywhere has provided a means for the friendly Cuban people to survive whatever comes their way.

Don’t miss this fantastic excursion.
