Spring Getaway to Havana on a Creative and Culturally Immersive 5 Day Long Weekend Experience.

February 9, 2018

CALGARY, Canada - We know that vacation days are precious, and few and far in between, which is why we are making the most out of our Easter long weekend trip to Havana from March 29 - April 3rd.  Ditch the all-inclusive resorts and tourist crowds this spring to experience Cuba the Comuna Travel way.

Today's Cuba is on the precipice of big and exciting change. It's a place where creative expression pours from behind every peeling facade and where a young entrepreneurial generation, driven by hustle and grit are forging a modern awakening. Cuba's modern culture is as deep and layered as its history, which is why travellers should go to Cuba not to see it before it changes, but to experience and be a part of the change as it happens.

Over 5 days, our founder and trip leader, Ioana Todosia, will bring travellers inside the electric and creative vibe of Havana's local culture to meet the young tastemakers pushing their country towards a new and exciting openness. Travellers will stay in stunning casa particulares hosted by a Cuban Olympic gold medalist and his family.

This will not be your average pre-packaged resort holiday to Cuba. Comuna's local partners will show travellers the electric pulse of Cuban culture and take them inside their Havana - the best kept secrets, exclusive events, thriving and innovative music scene, creatives in their most intimate spaces expressing their passions, late nights dancing to the beat of Cuba's best musicians and DJs, and many opportunities to indulge in heightened culinary experiences.

The long weekend itinerary is jam-packed, but travellers will still enjoy ample free time. On this trip they can look forward to;

Learning Cuban salsa and rumba at the private studio of a young professional choreographer. 
Experiencing the work of an inspiring social impact organization that focuses on youth development through skateboarding and art. 
Discovering the roots of Afro-Cuban culture and spirituality in a small township outside of Havana where we will be the only travellers and be invited inside the home of a Santeria Babalawo.
Indulging in high-minded traditional and contemporary Cuban fare at Havana's best new and innovative restaurants and favourite hole in the wall paladares.
Becoming inspired by the insanely creative energy of Havana on a curator led tour of the best contemporary art and music the city has to offer.
Relaxing on sugary sand beaches and swimming in crystal clear waters while sipping on rum filled fresh coconut water, where the locals go.

Because Comuna believes in sharing experiences over things, we are also running a flash sale until February 18th for Valentine's Day. All deposits booked during this time can enjoy 15% off using discount code "COMUNALOVE".
