Only 45 minutes from the Cuban capital city, you will find San Antonio de los Baños, a local town that encompasses a mixture of Cuban culture and pure idiosyncrasy. In this experience you will understand the Cuban lifestyle outside the capital city. Where we live, and what we do for a living are questions that will be answered by getting in touch with the reality of a town that has not experienced mass tourism. To begin with, we will go to a local farm, managed by the host family, to familiarize with the farming culture in Cuba. Then, we will drive downtown to walk around its historic center and get involved with its people, streets, parks, and remarkable spots. Besides, we will stop by the Humor Museum, only of its kind in Cuba, which showcases very high quality caricature exhibitions. After that, we will visit our house in town where you will interact with our family and have a Cuban homemade lunch with us. To end up, we will go to El Bosque Martiano, a community project that was built over an ancient garbage dump with the aim of encouraging people to love and respect nature. This off-the-beaten path experience will definitely provide you a different approach to the Cuban people.
My name is Alfonso. I am an Instructor Professor at the School of Tourism of the University of Havana, and a former High School history teacher. I was born in San Antonio de los Baños, an agricultural town to the south of Havana. I was raised in a farming family that has an expertise of almost two centuries in agriculture. I offer this lifestyle experience along with my wife Neivy to visitors that are willing to really understand the Cuban life outside the big city. Neivy is an Instructor Professor of Linguistics and Translation studies at the School of Foreign Languages of the University of Havana. She was also born and raised in San Antonio. We will open you the doors of our home town looking forward to making new friends instead of clients.
