Cuba Cultural Travel, in consultation with Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, is running "Cuba: People-to-People Educational Exchanges" in January and February 2012. Register soon if you hope to go; many of the programs have sold out, and there is limited availability in those remaining.  The following two programs have recently opened up but require registration by end-of-business-day today, Thursday, December 15!

January 25 - February 1, 2012           

The Color of Cuba

The Cuba educational programs have been developed to be not just travel experiences but opportunities to create shared exchanges that foster dialogue, interaction and understanding.
