Don Quijote schools are also offering various other afternoon/weekend activities e.g. city tours, visits to museums, excursions to nearby towns & villages as well as Tapas tours & movie nights.
Stepping into Havana, you will of course find the anticipated cool vintage cars, colourful colonial buildings, the Che Guevara posters, sounds of drums & guitars and locals dancing away at the Malecon. An atmosphere that can’t be put into words by any means, it has to be experienced personally and with all your senses.
As Cuba’s political and economical situation is rapidly taking a new direction you have to hurry to still get a piece of the old revolutionary Cuba as we’ve known it in the last 5 decades.
