They will have opportunities to interact with the locals, visiting the home and studio of a famous artist, a classic car enthusiast club as well as the San Jose Craft Market, where local artisans show off their handmade goods. Travelers will enjoy UNESCO World Heritage Sites including Old Havana and the beautiful countryside of Pinar del Rio, where a visit to a local tobacco farm and cigar factory is included. The trip includes one night at the Airport Miami Marriott and five nights at the Melia Havana Hotel.
