Our trips

Trip BOS-HAV-MIA: Dec 2-10, 2017

I.    (BOS- HAV: Dec 2-6) 

The first part of our trip will include a full program to explore Cuban culture and celebrate the talent of the most creative people of the island! This is a tremendous opportunity to understand Cuba’s reality through its people and history. Although you will ride the old cars, enjoy a mojito, or photograph the architectural landmarks, this program will showcase what’s not in the guides and makes Havana an exciting city with new energy and trends. In 5 days, you will have the opportunity to meet a group of creative people who are shaking the cityscape with inventive ideas about food, culture, nightlife and hospitality.  

II.    (HAV-MIA /or BOS-MIA: Dec 6-10)

The second part of the program will give you exclusive access to some of the most exciting happenings during Art Basel Miami, the art fair that showcases in America significant work from the masters of modern and contemporary art, as well as the new generation of outstanding emerging artists presented by leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Thanks to our contacts in Miami, you will have exclusive access to curated tours, private collections, and exciting parties that other art enthusiasts can only read on the news.
