Havana will be a trip down memory lane – a return to the 1950’s vintage cars. And 1950’s glamour revisited with an evening at the Cabaret Tropicana where 200 singers and dancers perform under the stars. You might wish to visit a UNESCO Heritage Site, Fusterlandia. It is the creation of artist José Rodriguez Fuster.

Cienfuegos presents a dramatic change in ambiance. Situated on a beautiful bay in the heart of Cuba’s fertile agricultural region. It is home to farmers and many working class Cubans. It was originally founded by French settlers and will quickly charm you with its neoclassical architecture and tranquil seaside setting. Its city center is recognized as a UNESCO heritage site.

Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city in Cuba, with a diverse Cuban/Caribbean culture. This culture is exhibited in its architecture, music, art and cuisine. It has also played a pivotal role in Cuban history. Visit San Juan Hill, where the battle that ended the Spanish rule of Cuba took place. Visit the cemetery where the Bacardi Rum heir, Emilio Bacardi Moreau, is buried.

These are but a sampling of what you will experience at the 2020 Spring Break, in addition to the traditional GLCC fun and fellowship.
