For Booking & Information


a unique blend of learning Spanish, travelling adventure & volunteer projects


Rousing rhythms, luscious landscapes and loquacious locals make Cuba a top travel destination for lovers of music, food, culture and life! Offering so much more than antiquated cars and coveted cigars, Cuba has a bounty of beaches, villages, farms and forests for travellers to explore. Viva Cuba!

Cuba's subtropical climate is ideal for travelling, with most places catching the cool trade winds that blow from the coast, giving Cuba pleasant temperatures year round. June, July and August are usually the hottest months, the dry season runs from November to April and the wet season from May to October. Even in the rainy season, downpours are short and heavy and shouldn't hinder travel plans. Tropical storms and hurricanes are more prevalent in September and October but rarely cause problems for travellers.


Combining the best of our Learn Spanish, Dance & Culture program with meaningful volunteer placements.

Conservation and community work in Playa Giron AND volunteering in Havana. These volunteer placements will help you connect with Cuban people, understand their culture and history, and give you an opportunity to make a real difference!

Our most ambitious Cuban program, this 6 week program comprises approximately 4 weeks in Havana, 2 weeks on Cuba’s south coast and a weekend excursion to Vinales. Activities include learning Spanish, dance tuition, cultural excursions (including horseriding and waterfalls) and meaningful volunteering. This is our busiest program and will give you a good all round feel for what is going on in Cuba today.

Spanish, Dance & Culture

Two or four week full cultural immersion based in Old Havana – spanish classes are supplemented with dance classes, cultural tours, excursions and trips out of town.

Based at Casa Jakera in Old Havana, Spanish language lessons take place Monday to Friday in the mornings, and in the afternoons you will receive dance classes and cultural excursions. Weekend trips feature the beach and a two-night road trip to Viñales (four week program only).

This is a busy program and offers the possibility of a full immersion into Cuban life – past and present – and the opportunity to really understand what makes this amazing country so special.

Cuba is probably the most musical nation on the planet and where there is music… there is dance!

We have selected Havana and Trinidad as the destinations for this program. Both destinations are bursting with atmosphere and vibrancy, they are culturally rich and tell the story of Cuba’s colonial era wealth and importance. Both have a rich musical and dance heritage and boast a fantastic nightlife.

This program can be taken in either Old Havana OR Trinidad or combined to make a two, three or four week program. The format and price is the same for either location and can even be combined into a 4 week program for those who wish to spend 2 weeks in Havana followed by 2 weeks in Trinidad. Lessons are delivered by professional instructors and supplemented by cultural immersion and orientation. After breakfast enjoy Spanish language lessons and then in the afternoon we hit the dance school!
