If you want to have the ultimate Afro-Latin experience in Cuba you should travel with Black Travel Movement! Each year we take groups of travelers to the Caribbean island to immerse ourselves in local culture. We spend our days touring Old Havana, visiting local artists studios, and shopping for cigars and rum. At night we get picked up in old classic cars and cruise the Malecon to dinner or take in a show at the Tropicana hotel.
