Mira Costa High School and Peace Works Travel give you the opportunity to spend a week visiting Cuba. Combining cultural awareness, adventure travel, insider’s access to social enterprise, natural landscapes and analytical reflection, this one-of-a-kind Digital Storytelling Adventure empowers students to explore a hidden gem of the Americas. Once considered the forbidden fruit of the West, Cuba is now closer than ever. Fascinating history, breathtaking architecture, warm people, rich music and art, make it the best time to discover Cuba. We take students beyond the touristy exterior, to meet fascinating Cubanos on the wave of change. Our excursions provide travelers with the best of Cuba’s “must-‐see’s” in a fun, hands-‐on way. Vibrant City Culture. Tropical Beach Explorations. Exciting Baseball Games. Charming Pueblos and Mountain Ecology Preserves. Wherever we are, each day has an exciting activity for students, humanizing real people once dismissed as “enemy communists.”
