Study Spanish in Havana, one of the oldest and most picturesque cities in the Americas and a melting pot of cultures.
Cuba’s economic, cultural and political centre, Havana is a lively, fun-loving capital. Its old town is like a living museum, with its incredible colonial architecture brought to life by the country’s intoxicating music that combines influences from jazz, salsa, African and Caribbean music. Outside music, Cuba’s biggest exports are rum and cigars and in Havana you can see where both are made on a trip to the Havana Club Rum Factory or a cigar factory, as well as trying your fair share in the city’s many bars.
To get to know the city, take a stroll along the Malecón (the coastal promenade where young Cubans like to meet), go on a tour of the city in a stylish American vintage car, watch the famous Tropicana cabaret show or learn about the country’s recent political history at the Museum of the Revolution. For those days when you would like to just relax, you can enjoy the Caribbean sunshine on one of the beautiful beaches a short drive away.
