At a Glance

Over the years, we’ve heard from many grandparents who tell us that as their grandchildren grow older, it’s harder and harder to stay in touch. That’s why we’ve created this amazing learning adventure for you and your college-age grandchildren. Together, explore the culturally-rich island of Cuba and meet the locals that call it home. Visit an independent small town community project and venture to the capital city of Havana to delve deep into its complicated history and learn how Cuba’s past has influenced its modern culture. Along the way, engage in fascinating discussions with artists, dancers and entrepreneurs and strengthen your bond with your grandchild as you learn about a new place together.
