"I was always treated as if I had insisted on being born in opposition to the dictates of reason, religion, and morality, and against the arguments of my best friends." ~ Pip's Lament "Great Expectations" (Chapter 4, pg. 25)

I hope you saw my e-mail earlier this week about The Nation’s 2017 trips to Cuba. If you’re interested in traveling with us, don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions by calling 212-209-5401 or e-mailing email@example.com.
The Nation has two spring 2017 trips planned to Cuba—both are unique ways to experience this fascinating island during a time of unprecedented change, as the country responds to the death of Fidel Castro and looks toward a new era and an uncertain new relationship with Washington.
Join The Nation for seven nights as we travel to vibrant Havana, a place of rare beauty and culture, to experience the people, politics, art, and history of this city in ways few others have. We’ll tour museums with eminent art historians, wander through the markets of the old city, enjoy the bohemian clubs and cafés of the pulsating Vedado neighborhood, and attend intimate concerts by renowned Cuban musicians. We’ll also experience the scenic beauty of the Pinar del Río Province and the Viñales Valley (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and savor traditional Cuban food and spirits at the island’s finest restaurants and organic farms.
The all-inclusive cost of this seven-night tour is $5,855 per person with double occupancy ($400 single supplement). This includes round-trip airfare from Florida to Havana, six nights at the four-star Hotel NH Capri La Habana, and one evening at a private guesthouse in Viñales, Pinar del Río Province.
Join us for eight nights as we explore multiple Cuban cities and the island’s beautiful countryside. During our visit, we’ll stop in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Camagüey, with its unique labyrinthine streets and narrow alleyways; the stunning colonial city of Trinidad, also a UNESCO World Heritage city; and the pristine beaches and coral reef of Jibacoa. We’ll also spend two nights in Havana, with day trips to Santa Clara and Matanzas. Beyond Havana, Cuba boasts rural as well as urban treasures: gorgeous architecture, vibrant art scenes, immaculately maintained nature preserves, historical monuments, and, in the countryside, a pastoral lifestyle unchanged for decades.
The all-inclusive cost of this eight-night tour is $5,980 per person with double occupancy ($840 single supplement). This includes round-trip chartered airfare from Florida to Camagüey (returning from Havana) and two nights each in Camagüey, Trinidad, Havana, and Jibacoa.
During both trips, we’ll connect with prominent Cuban professors, community activists, farmers, artists, dancers, business owners, journalists, and health-care workers. Our evenings will be filled with private showings at artists’ studios, special performances by some of Cuba’s internationally acclaimed dance institutes, and wonderful Cuban music and cuisine.
