Profundo Journeys Cuba 2018
An Immersive Photography and Cultural Tour
January 8-21, 2018
Welcome to Cuba! Colorful, warm and full of surprises!
What sets this Profundo Journeys cultural photography tour apart from others? We start with a very unique itinerary, going to places no other tours visit. You will see not only 'must see cities and towns, but also small villages and remote islands. You will experience deeper exploration, meeting and engaging with local residents. In a Profundo Journeys cultural and photography tours, we stay in these small towns for more than a day, allowing for a true immersion in Cuban daily from dawn to dusk. Why, you might even find yourself in the middle of a parade!
Your photographs and memories will capture the intimacy of courtyards, narrow cobblestoned streets and homes open to the air. People will smile at you, and perhaps an invitation will be extended for a visit into a humble living for a cup of cafe. The details of their lives are laid bare form religious altars to single framed photographs on the wall. Cindy will be there to guide you in your observations and photography, taking you to hidden places of the 'real' Cuba.
Your Cuban experience would not be complete without time in the vibrant city of Havana, home to colonial architecture, historic plazas, the seaside Malecon, and exciting night life. In Havana, you will tour the city with a local photographer, visit galleries, museums and a boxing gym and have the opportunity to ride around in one of the famous antique American cars.
Our 2018 itinerary begins in Miami with our flight to Holguin. We once again visit the intimate fishing village of Gibara, the farming village of Remedios, historic Camaguey, isolated Nueva Gerona (with the prison made famous by the Castro's incarceration) and ending in Havana, from where we fly back to Miami. There is ample time in each location to get out and explore, and become immersed in the local culture, to wander at your leisure, experiencing the narrow streets, colorful characters and vibrant plazas. The full itinerary is available here. A trip to Cuba inscribes itself in your heart and will stay with you, always.
