Who hasn't dreamed about traveling to Cuba?

     Well now is the time.  All but closed to US citizens for five decades, recent changes in US/Cuba relations have made it easier to visit the island.  Some  restrictions still apply and  JB Journeys is excited to offer legal small group, people-to-people travel experiences.
     Havana is 'frozen in time'. Havana Vieja, the old city, founded in 1519 by Spanish explorers, today is a sprawling metropolis of 2 million. Havana Vieja retains an interesting mix of Baroque and neoclassical buildings, and private houses with wrought-iron balconies and courtyards, many now serving as restaurants and bars, and is the heart of a vibrant nightlife.  The 'newer' parts of Havana are a mix of mid-century modern high-rise hotels such as the Nacional, Riveria, and Parque Central, (built by the mafia who controlled Cuba in the 40s and 50s) and Soviet style government buildings. The architectural mix has something for everyone.
     Our tour will focus on Havana, the central part of the island, and Trinidad, a 500-year old colonial city on the southern coast. We visit museums, take a cooking class, meet artists, and hike some of Cuba's beautiful landscape. Please join us in Cuba during this time of historic change. This is a legally operated people-to-people itinerary, operated under a general license.
