Fundación Antonio Núñez Jiménez – La Habana, 9 February 2018

Join Dr. Michael Connors and Liliana Núñez Velis, President of Fundación Antonio Núñez Jiménez, in La Habana for the presentation of:



When envisioning Cuba, images of 1950s American cars, historically significant architecture, pristine isolated white sand beaches, and Buena Vista music ensembles come to mind. But, for those who venture beyond the capital city of Havana, there are the dramatic landscapes and tobacco fields of the island’s western province, Pinar del Río; and the tourist-free eastern mountainous provinces of isolated and undiscovered colonial towns and villages suspended in time.

Even though the current administration in the United States White House is attempting to reverse President Obama’s 2014 travel directives, both individual and group travel is still legal. In addition, Cuba remains the safest place in the Americas!  It is a perfect time to visit before the floodgates open – visit Cuba is now.
