Cuba Past & Present: Explore the Culture of Cuba

Join us for an unforgettable trip exploring Cuba’s unique architecture and heritage. This year, for the first time, the Florida Trust will be adding two additional locations to its itinerary.

We will be traveling Sept. 30 through Oct. 7, 2017 and our program includes hotel, most meals and excursions and your flight from Miami to Havana and back to Miami. On our trip we will we be exploring the architecture, culture and history of Havana, but also traveling to Cienfuegos and exploring Trinidad de Cuba. Adding these two locations will allow travelers to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the many historical treasures of Cuba.

Cienfuegos is a city on the southern coast of Cuba and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded in 1819 in the Spanish territory but was initially settled by immigrants of French origin. According to UNESCO, “Cienfuegos is the first, and an outstanding example of an architectural ensemble representing the new ideas of modernity, hygiene and order in urban planning as developed in Latin America from the 19th century.”

Founded in the early 16th century Trinidad de Cuba was built on the prosperity of the sugar trade and was an important step on the way to colonization of the American continent. We will stay two nights in the city, with highlights including visiting a restored sugar plantation, the Old Quarter and a private visit to a 16th century church.

We hope you can join us on this amazing adventure to Cuba! Please see the links below to access the full program and to register. Registration is open through August, and all program registrations include a membership to the Florida Trust.
