Wildland Adventures is offering a people-to-people Cuba tour
that focuses on the role of music and art in the lives of the Cuban people.
The nine-day "Adventure Cuba: Art, Music & Dance"
departs Nov. 10 and visits various sites in Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad
that include community centers, performance stages, concert halls, private
homes, farmers markets, ration stores, gardens and museums.
Some meals are eaten with artists and scholars.
"Music and revolution go hand in hand in Cuba as music
in many aspects is a representation of the revolution," said Wildland
Adventures CEO Kurt Kutay. "We've chosen a variety of artists and a range
of both musicians and performance venues. Our travelers will have opportunities
for open-ended conversations with Cubans in private audience settings."
Accommodations are in private homes and in the Hotel
Nacional in Havana.
For groups between 12 and 14 participants, the rate is
$5,800 per person, double. The rate drops by $200 for groups between 15 and 18
Wildland Adventures has five additional programs to Cuba
ranging from five to 11 days in length with a focus on Cuba's heartland,
Havana, the national parks, kayaking and a coast-to-coast itinerary.
