Cuba conjures up visions of beauty, music, and intrigue. GeoEx’s educational exchange brings you the best of this seemingly frozen-in-time destination, introducing you to Cubans as they look to the not-so-distant horizon of change. Our Cuba program is ambitious, but we think that it’s more than worthwhile to seek out the heart of this vibrant country.

In Havana we experience the old and the new, dialoguing with highly respected architects, historians, academics, and curators, and learning about Cuban-American relations. We interact with musicians, businesspeople, students, and artists at studios, museums, restaurants, and schools, gaining insight into the progression of Cuban art and politics through the country’s history. For a broader perspective, we venture into the beautiful, multiethnic Viñales Valley, a World Heritage Site. We behold it's dramatic limestone outcroppings known as mogotes, experience life on a family tobacco farm, and see a community project for children. Throughout our explorations in Cuba, we get a taste of entrepreneurship at its delicious best in paladares, where we sample traditional Cuban dishes in the homes of welcoming locals.
