COME EXPLORE CUBA WITH US
November 10 - 17, 2018
Peters Valley is hosting a one-of-a-kind trip to Cuba, designed to experience the arts, crafts, and culture of this unique island nation at a historic time of change. Join us for our seven-night tour, conceived in partnership with Cuba Educational Travel, a leading organizer of group travel to the island. Together we've created a special program taking us from electrifying Havana to charming and quaint Trinidad and back. We'll spend three nights at the historic Hotel Capri in the vibrant Vedado district of Havana, then two nights in colonial Trinidad, then back to the lovely mansion-filled Miramar neighborhood in Havana for our last two evenings. Please email development (@) petersvalley.org for more info.
