For Americans, Cuba occupies a mysterious and complex place in the lexicon of our cultural and political history. Once beloved as a socialite playground, the Havana high life of the early 20th Century gave rise to the Communist revolution prompting an enduring embargo for generations. Now, as we open our people-to-people Wildland Adventures on the largest Caribbean island, Cuba is the least commercialized and most fascinating isle of the Caribbean. While its political and economic isolation has held it back from development in the modern world, we explore the deep roots of Cuba’s traditional cultural heritage retained among its professionals and working class people living close to the land. Many of the sensual rhythms, political revolutions, art and passion of Latin America derive from the influences we experience traveling amongst the friendly, passionate, and sophisticated Cuban people you meet on our small group Wildland Adventures to Cuba.
