The Caribbean attitude to life, kilometres of dream beaches and cheerful islanders will make your language study trip to Cuba an unforgettable experience.
SUNSET ON THE BEACH
Cuba is a true Caribbean island. After your language class, head down to the beach and watch the turquoise-blue waters lapping the white sand as the sun sets. Treat yourself to a Mojito at a beach bar and watch the locals dance to the rhythm of the Cuban son, salsa or cha cha cha. The average temperature is a pleasant 25 degrees. Cuba is also known for its varied landscape. The hilly hinterland and "Pico Turquino", the highest mountain on the island, are ideal hiking territory. Thanks to its diverse flora and fauna, the "Sierra del Rosario" mountain range is protected by UNESCO.
PRODUCTS OF INTERNATIONAL RENOWN
Despite their somewhat dilapidated state, the old colonial-style houses in Havana, Trinidad and Santiago exude a nostalgic charm. American vintage cars can be seen on the streets. They are old treasures that the Cubans have kept ticking over with a great deal of love and hard work. Colourful markets, exuberant dance performances and exotic food also form part of the country's rich cultural offering. On a language study trip to Cuba, you should also make time to explore the areas outside of the cities. Here, the scenery is characterised by tobacco, coffee and sugar cane plantations. These raw products are used in the making of the world-famous Cuban cigars, aromatic coffee and top-quality rum.
