DETAILS

Cuba. A magical word, a magical place. For more than a half-century it’s been off-limits to Americans, but this is changing. Now Quintess members can explore this jewel of the Caribbean with a private historian and exclusive access to locations throughout the island. From the hot music scene of Havana, the white sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean to soaring green mountain jungles. From small hamlets to towns of still-perfect 18th century colonial architecture to modern metropolis. Cuba. At last.
