Head to Havana for New Year’s Eve
Trying to sort out your plans for arguably the biggest celebration of the year can be daunting. But, booking an amazing holiday somewhere warm can take the guesswork out of the occasion, and create the perfect atmosphere for ringing in the new year. The Evolved Traveler can help with their Cuban Fusion New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Cuban Fusion is a seven-night trip that gives you the exclusive access to Cuban artists, performers and locals The Evolved Traveler trips are known for. You’ll spend your time immersed in the country’s vibrant culture, and celebrate the end of 2019 dancing in the streets with the locals.
You’ll begin your journey into Cuba with urban planner and “Explainer-in-Chief” Professor Miguel Coyula. He will explain the nuances of Cuban culture to you, and how things work in Havana. You’ll then interact with local entrepreneurs to learn more about the unique challenges they face while running their businesses in Cuba. That will be followed by an amazing opportunity to learn more about the country’s foreign policy when you have lunch with Cuba’s former ambassador to the European Union. And then, have a true home-cooked Cuban meal when you join a family of artists for dinner, during which you’ll also learn about the arts community in Havana. Watch art and urban life collide again when you visit the home and studio of Cuban artist Fuster, who reinvested 90 percent of the proceeds from his work into the community, revitalising the formerly poor neighbourhood.
In keeping with the changes to the criteria for acceptable tourism in Cuba, the Cuban Fusion New Year’s Eve Celebration is designed to give back to the communities you’ll explore. That means financial compensation is given directly to any artists and performers you meet so they benefit from their hard work right away. In addition to that, The Evolved Traveler will plant 100 trees in each guest’s name through their partnership with Carbonfund.org, and every guest also gets to choose a charity to support through a $200 donation from the company.
Experience the best of Cuban culture while you celebrate the start of 2020 when you join the Cuban Fusion New Year’s Eve Celebration with The Evolved Traveler. From the true immersion in the culture to the stunning architecture to the welcoming locals, this trip is a great way to both enjoy a warm week away and give back to the people and places you’ll fall in love with.
