Travel: March 14 - 21, 2020

Marist faculty, students and their guests stay in a beautifully restored home or residencia (similar to a bed and breakfast).  Located in the Vedado neighborhood just outside Havana, these accommodations are exclusively reserved for members of the trip and are overseen by an on-site local host or host family with English speaking support staff.  Double or triple rooms are included. There is an additional fee for a single room. 

This experience has been designed with the adult student in mind where a selection of unique experiences have been chosen to appeal to a more sophisticated student. Adult guests and older children may attend this trip with the permission of the instructor. Guests are required to pay the program fee and participate in activities while abroad.
