What you'll do

I invite you to be part of a wonderful typical party of the solares of Havana. This is a rare experience in Cuba, where you will have the opportunity to be part of daily life within a *solar *, interacting with the families that inhabit them, you will have the opportunity to dance and sing with us to the rhythm of the Drums, enjoying an atypical drink, unique to these activities and tasting the most traditional recipes of popular cuisine, we always invite a group of dancers to accompany us in these activities so that with their dance techniques, they give more joy to our party in which the main protagonist is the Cuban Rumba, recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Patrimony of Humanity.
When we finish the activity we will take a little walk to some of the nearest private art galleries to know more about the cultural traditions of Cuba, finishing in the meeting point. After the tour, you´ll feel like you are part of our culture, and you´ll be ready to continue your adventure in the streets of Havana, filling yourselves as cubans.

Rumba's experience in Old Havana embarks on yourself. You learn to explore music from Africa, traditional folklore, great dances, and excellent musicians. An incredible experience about Afro-Cuban culture and all that has been said, I recommend to all my friends and family that they make the Rumba experience in Old Havana. My host knows a lot about the culture and is very good at doing this kind of work. I will do it again. Far from my hometown, I found peace, happiness and a good rest from my daily life. Thanks to the book of Cuba for this experience.
