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.
“The Envoys Staff were exceptionally committed to us and to the goals of our trip. They were thoughtful, kind, caring, friendly, with great sense of humor, yet serious in their connection to the ethos of professional development that was our trip’s purpose. I was struck over and over again by how they literally RAN to be in the right place to respond to any given situation.”— Constance , Traveling Faculty, Friends Seminary Colombia 2016
“I don’t think it is possible to pull a trip like the Amazon and the many activities that you directed without the sense of purpose you have, without your drive for experiential learning for teenagers. All our experiences with the Envoys team were amazing!”— Angela , Traveling Faculty, RoundSquare Colombia 2015
“The Envoys staff were very open about sharing their first-hand experiences, which was a game-changer in terms of learning about post-apartheid South Africa. Also, having everything planned to the T made me feel very safe. I knew that I was in good hands.”— Gio H. , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
