Commemorate Wildland Adventures’ 30th anniversary on this active people-to-people exploration into the heartland of Cuba visiting some of its lesser-known and beautiful UNESCO-designated traditional towns, nature reserves, and Caribbean islands. Take in the sights, sounds, and flavors of Old Havana on a guided walking tour and on a bicycle-taxi. We learn to prepare traditional Cuban dishes, and have private visits in artist studios, with a social psychologist, and a presentation from a musicologist who introduces us to the sensuous Latin rhythms that are ubiquitous in the city. In the beautiful Viñales Valley a small tobacco farmer shows us how to roll the best cigars, and in Viñales National Park and Biosphere Reserve we hike on easy trails and cycle down meandering country roads through spectacular landscapes of towering limestone karsts covered in rainforest. Snorkel and paddleboard among Caribbean reefs and white sand beaches in Cayo Jutias, and hear the fascinating story of the Las Terrazas “Green Revolution” project initiated by Castro in 1968 turned nature reserve and eco-community.
