The common history of Miami and Havana goes back for many decades. And while this connection shows its face in the food, façades, and music, beneath the surface there is even more history and co-created culture to examine. We explore Miami, practising our Spanish where possible, and discovering the murky history and the blurry line between Miami and Havana, between Florida and Cuba.
Places and ActivitiesThis program is flexible, and can be offered in 3, 5, or 7 day itineraries.
“It was not only the good times with our friends or the relationships we built but how we were after we came back, returning to this agitated society with a new view of ourselves and not just our impact on the world, but the world’s impact on us.”— Gabriela , Student, Deerfield Colombia 2014
“We had an amazing program. It was a biology teacher’s dream and Felipe and his crew couldn’t have been more thorough and professional to work with. Thanks for all of your efforts to organize an unforgettable experience for us all.”— Gerry , Traveling Faculty, LCC Colombia 2016
“Many student groups participate in ‘Voluntourism’. This trip did not attempt that, but rather funneled the collective energy of each member into meaningful, mutually beneficial cultural interactions. Thank you so much for this unforgettable and transformational experience.”— Altana , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
