Why visit Havana?

Explore a vibrant city

Caribbean and Latin cultures combine in Havana, the capital of Cuba, creating a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere that your students will find enchanting.

A crumbling beauty, Havana’s architecture is eclectic, and the streets are littered with classic cars – in which you can enjoy an unforgettable city tour!

Your students will certainly never have been anywhere quite like Havana, which is what makes it the perfect choice for a general and cultural school trip!

Discover a fascinating history

500 years old, Havana has a rich and complex history for your students to explore. And, as the country’s capital, Havana is the perfect base from which to explore the rest of the country.

Cuba was colonised by the Spanish in the 15th century. But before that, it was inhabited by two tribes of indigenous peoples of the Americas, the Taíno and the Guanahatabey.

On your school trip to Cuba, make sure you take some time to visit the Los Indios Caves, where you’ll see cave paintings and archaeological remains from these pre-Columbian civilisations.

And at Guama, you can visit a recreation of a Taíno village, to find out how these indigenous people lived.

Of course, while on a school trip to Havana, you must spend some time learning about the political history of Cuba.

Not to be missed is a visit the mausoleum of Che Guevara, the iconic figure of the Cuban Revolution. There is a museum here documenting the life of Guevara, and your visit will help students understand why he remains an important figure in Cuban history.

At the Museo Giron, on the Bay of Pigs, your students will learn more about the Bay of Pigs Invasion during the Cold War.

They’ll learn about the ultimately fruitless invasion and the counter attack, will learn about the experience of Cuban troops and will find out what happened to American prisoners of war. And outside the museum they’ll even see tanks and aircraft that were used in the conflict.
