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.
“I was incredibly impressed by the care taken by Envoys. Before we even hit the ground, there was an emphasis on comprehending impact on our destination’s environment that I appreciated..Throughout the trip, our Envoys leaders made sure that we continued to be conscious of impact. That awareness of cause and effect is something that often gets lost when traveling, and Envoys did not allow it to. During this trip, there was never a moment I did not feel safe and cared for nor a moment where I did not feel I was learning something!”— Keylee S. , Student, Dalton South Africa 2014
“Every single person working for Envoys is excellent and committed to the kids and their experience, not just during the trip, but before and after. We would recommend Envoys to anyone looking for a high quality and enriching summer experience.”— Amy G. , Parent, Envoys Malawi 2014 & 2015
“With its emphasis on empathy and general intelligence in planning, Envoys has quickly emerged as a premier global program provider. They are well worth the attention of any of our schools.”— Paul Miller , Former Director of Global Initiatives, NAIS
