Cuba Trip Photo

Join your Potsdam family & Civitas Global Education Services in Cienfuegos & Havana, Cuba

May 20 -26, 2018

Immerse Yourself in the Culture, Art, History and People of Cuba!

Join us on this spectacular People-to-People educational exchange program, authorized by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Cuban Assets Control Regulations.

This journey puts you in contact with Cubans to learn about their culture, their history and their heritage AND you’ll discover SUNY Potsdam’s newest international partner institution – Universidad de Cienfuegos located in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Cienfuegos. Known as “La Perla Del Sur”, Cienfuegos is a vibrant city full of charm that is authentically Cuban. Removed from the congestion of the capital, it is rich in history, culture and diversity. Once you set foot here, you will see right away why the Lonely Planet Guide says “if Cuba has a Paris, this is most definitely it.” In addition, we will travel to Havana where you will get a proper orientation on the city and its history. We will stay at one of Havana’s most iconic hotels and witness the “socio-economic update” in action by frequenting some of the private establishments of the “new economy”.

Space on this amazing 7-day journey will be limited!
