                      Program Description

                      • Spanish Classes
                        • Your teacher is licensed, and on day one, you receive a short test to establish your level and objectives. Lessons take the format of 3 x 45-minute lessons with 15-minute breaks to refresh.
                      • Dance Classes
                        • In the 1hr. dance classes, you are taken through your paces – lessons feature Salsa but depending on your progress, you may also be introduced to Kizomba, Bachata, Reggaeton, Son, Rueda de Casino, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, and perhaps a few moves you haven’t heard of! The lessons are delivered a short walk from your Casa by a licensed dance instructor, and in the evenings, there are MANY free live music venues where you can do your homework!
                      • Welcome Camino
                        • On your first day in Havana, you are taken on a short walking tour – usually within 24 hours of your arrival – to familiarise you with your new surroundings and to give you a flavor of the opportunities to enjoy your free time.
                      • Beach Excursion
                        • You are accompanied on a day trip to the beaches directly east of Havana. Journey time is 30 minutes by bus, and you can enjoy the exhilarating rollers that break on these pristine sandy beaches.
                      • Guided Culture Walks
                        • Hop onto a Wah-Wah (fume-belching local bendy bus) or Colectivo (classic car/ communal taxi) and take to the streets to discover the real Havana. Understand how Habaneros live; the practical day-to-day issues Cubans face living in this complicated country at this exciting time, and help us take away some answers to our own ‘first world’ problems! We take you on an adventure to help you understand and enjoy the history of Cuba and
                          Havana.

                          Understand the source of her amazing wealth, the rich cultural mix, marvel at the faded patina of Havana’s
                          famous gorgeous Neo-classical architecture, the rumble of classic American cars, curious soviet era high-rise buildings, ubiquitous live music on every street, dance, exotic religions etc. the list is endless. You will quickly feel at home and gain the knowledge and confidence to enjoy the city during your own time with newfound travelers and Cuban friends. You have been immersed into the Cuban culture - enjoy!

                          These cultural experiences and excursions are with our trained local guides, who will show you how to buy (and spend!) local pesos, take local transport, and generally make you feel at home and comfortable with your new surroundings.
