What you'll do

We'll meet in the city center and travel to a popular neighborhood using public transportation, just as typical Cubans do. We'll walk through the community and interact with the people there so you can see what a normal day is like for the locals. We'll learn about the educational and health systems, visit and learn about historical places, and get to know and interact with small businesses that are part of the lives of the Cuban people. Together, we'll experience the daily lives and idiosyncrasies of Cubans, and learn about the main accomplishments and challenges of our economic and social reality. The day will end at my family's home, where you will get to know the story of my Cuban family, and also taste some typical drinks and snacks.

Your hosts

We love Cuba. We strive to make each day a little better and enjoy discovering its reality at the same time that we dream about its future. This vocation, coupled with our profession as economists and graduate from the University of Havana, has encouraged us to study and discover issues related to the daily lives of Cubans, including their history, culture, idiosyncrasies, entrepreneurship, and more. We have some friends who are doing this tour with us, normally will be two of us in the tour to show you Cuba from diferent perspectives and to do a better job. We are two Jorges hosting this, both from the same school and with the same love for Cuba.

Where you'll be
