Itinerary

01

Day 1: Havana

There are no planned activities until the welcome meeting in the evening.

Additional Notes:
It is important to note that Cuba tends to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and infrastructure are generally old and may not have been maintained to the highest standard. Elevators, internet and A/C often break down, things happen very slowly and water pressure and hot water can be minimal. Cuba is an amazing place to visit but to fully enjoy and relax, western expectations should be left at home and your sense of adventure should be your guide.

Included Activities:
Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting
