CUBA 2016

New Dates: November 2016 - Completed

Praxis Peace Institute, in conjunction with Cuba Educational Travel, a people-to-people, US Treasury licensed company (License # 515.565, has prepared a spectacular program for our travelers. And, Praxis offers the absolute best price for this type of trip!

There are no plans for a Cuba trip in 2017.

What participants said about our 2015 Cuba trip:

I's recommend this trip very highly. Cuba itself is literally the most fascinating place I've ever explored, but Praxis and CET did an exceptional job of introducing us to the realities of the island and its people. Thanks for putting this together.  M.F.

Learning that even thought there is severe economic hardship, the majority of people love their country and believe in solidarity and don't want to leave or give up socialism. Living in south Florida, you never hear that side of the story. K. R.

This was the most intellectually interesting trip we have ever taken. C.F.
