The Common Good Trip to CUBA, November 9th-16th, 2012


We are thrilled that we offered our first trip with The Common Good.  On November 9th to November 16th,  we traveled to Cuba with travel experts.  The trip included visits to the Bay of Pigs, Hemingway’s home, cultural, political and economic highlights in Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad and other important places of interest.

On October 28, 2011, Californians Building Bridges (CBB) was granted a license by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control, License # CT-18210, to travel and engage in travel-related transactions directly related to educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between the travelers and individuals in Cuba.  CBB was founded on the principle of joining together communities and providing greater opportunities to those who are economically deprived by emerging cultures, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds.  Attendees travled under this license during your trip and participated in a full-time schedule of educational activities.

Daily Activities
CBB scheduled daily activities that gave insight into the local customs, history, and politics that shape the lives of the Cuban people.  These activities included language lessons, salsa classes, guest speakers, and field trips to local areas of interest, such as Hemmingway’s home.  The group had an opportunity to visit a cigar factory, the Rum and Fine Arts Museums, local artist’s homes, and the Tropicana Cabaret.
