Cuban Educational Trip
Dec 6 2015 - Dec 13 2015
Cuba Educational Travel is offering the opportunity to spend a week visiting Communist Cuba. Once considered the forbidden fruit for Americans, our neighbor to the south is now closer than ever. Its fascinating history, breathtaking architecture, warm people, and rich music and art, make it the perfect place to learn about the Cuba of today, and have the time of your life while doing so. Travel to Cuba remains tightly regulated, but Cuba Educational Travel holds a license from the U.S. Treasury Department (CT-2013-300203-1) to arrange educational trips, meaning your memorable visit is fully sanctioned by the U.S. government.
