Trip Overview

Ever want to visit Cuba, but have limited time?

Blue Note Travel’s Havana Jazz Weekend Getaway Tour is perfect for you. It’s specifically designed for busy people who want to fully experience Cuba’s vibrant capital city on a short schedule.

Words cannot truly describe the energy of Havana. See the gorgeous seaside architecture on the Malecon (boardwalk). Experience the warmth of the people welcoming you with smiles and friendly faces. Listen to the music and watch the dancers line the streets. Most of all, Blue Note Travel legally allows you to see Cuba’s real treasure—its people.

On our special tour you will meet Havana’s up-and-coming artists, as well as world famous painters. You will also be invited to attend exclusive dance performances, and listen to some of Cuba’s finest jazz, salsa bands and son bands in the style of the Buena Vista Social Club.

In Havana, you will feel like you are going back in time as you see the spectacular old American cars on the road and the fascinating old world architecture. Our mission is to immerse you in this passionate culture to truly have you experience Havana just like a local. People-to- People travel allows even the most seasoned travelers to view Cuba through the lens of the musicians, dancers and artists— an experience that is virtually impossible anywhere else in the world.
