Where you'll be

We will visit the Yoruba association, a resource for the Yoruba religion in the tourist center of Old Havana, close to the historic segregated outer-walls of Jesus Maria, where AfroCubans were relegated. We continue to the 2nd developed barrio of Centro Havana & end in the AfroCuban neighborhoods on the margins: El Cerro & 10 de Octubre: named after AfroCuban Independence Day, October 10 1868. Most of our Cuban guides are from these barrios.
