    Thank you. I’m planning a trip there the end of September and have airfare and lodging complete. Now I’m looking for connections with AfroCuban culture and people. I would love a private rumba y salsa instructor and a maestra to study Spanish, Santeria, Rumba y mas. I love music, dance, food, nature and people; people, especially! I am traveling alone, retired Sista from Oakland, California. My daughters may join me sometime on this 29-day trip.

    Any ideas?

      I have a connect in Santiago who dances for one of the Folklorico companies. He teaches salsa and rumba and he’s excellent. Reach out to me on Facebook and I’ll connect you.

  2. In my head, I have been saying that I would like to visit Cuba but I never gave much though to the history of the country. I did not know that slaves were taken to Cuba and I had no idea about the details about Castro. I feel like I got a quick history lesson and I appreciate that. Now going to Cuba seems even more intriguing.

  3. Great post! I have heard this is the place to go to really dwelve into Cuban culture. The music ad the dancing! I look forward to visiting the island again and getting to Santiago!

    Cuba is non African country that intrigues me. In spite of their struggles..there is a certain romantic appeal that it has and I want to learn more Afro Cuban culture.
