Cuba Art Adventures is a grassroots collective that offers customized cultural immersion tours of Cuba for creative travelers. Our local guides offer daily cultural excursions providing the opportunity to an authentic experience in the heart of Havana and its surroundings. With a focus on employing Cubans, we explore places and venues meant to enliven our creative spirits including guided visits to the Museum of Cuban Art, day trips to Cuban beaches, and tours of Old Havana historical sites. We welcome all creatives (ages 18 through 95) to join us in discovering the beauty of Cuban art and culture.

Accommodation is in Cuba's classic "casa particulares" bed & breakfasts provide an authentic look into Cuban life. Run by local families, these private homes are clean, comfortable, and equipped with kitchens and air conditioning. Bathrooms have showers and hot/cold running water. Casa breakfasts are typically tropical fruit, eggs with or without ham, rolls, coffee/tea, and fresh fruit juice.
Cuban Friends & Family
Our guides for excursions are knowledgeable and give personal as well as historical experience. Our hosts are elegant and welcoming casa owners. Our salsa teachers will make it easy to relax and have fun in Cuba. The Cuban friends who join us for meals will share their life experience and views, and be eager to hear your impressions of the country they love. Most of our travelers to Cuba tell us that in a country of beautiful and compelling sights and experiences, it's the people who leave the strongest positive impression. Here, it will be easy to make Cuban friends and begin to see the country through their eyes.
