Join the Alexander von Humboldt for a 11 days voyage. On board you participate in the daily working of the ship alongside professional seamen, standing lookout, manning the helm, helping in the galley, hoisting sail and voluntarily have the chance to climb the rigging/mast. Language on board German and English. Open to all ages, minimum age 14 years.
Havana is a place where time seems to have stopped, a country for a long time closed to the public because of many political tensions. Architecture has been preserved from the ravages of modernism, colors, faded with time, are evidence of the splendor of the Spanish imprint. La Habana Vieja is a UNESCO heritage site. Discover the place that inspired Hemingway, ride a taxi particular and listen to the omnipresent music to submerge yourself in the unique Cuban atmosphere.
Santiago is a big and festive city in Cuba and its most important fishing port. Cuban music is deeply rooted in Santiago and is the result of the fusion of African drumming and Spanish guitar. Stroll through the streets of the historical center and savoring the fresh breeze, until you arrive at the famous building La Casa de la Trova. Visit the Revolution Plaza with its monumental statues and don't forget the Diego Velazquez Museum.
