Demonstrate a different way of life to your students on a school trip to Cuba

Cuba will show your History and Politics students a totally different way of life and is a chance for them to gain valuable insight into the Cold-war era and further their understanding about the personalities and politics of those involved.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, filled with incredible people and vibrant culture. Due to a harsh, decades-long economic embargo enforced by its big neighbour, the USA, Cuba has struggled to keep pace with the rest of the world. Its people and infrastructure have undoubtedly suffered as a result, but a slight upside of this is a magical place where much of a 1950s facade is maintained. Slightly shabby yet superbly stylish, Cuba is a great place for a history tour that also offers a chance to see how a small country can survive economically when isolated from much of the rest of the world.

Whether they are working in Key Stage 3, 4 or 5, a school trip to Cuba will show your History and Politics students a totally unique social structure and economy. They will return home with a greater understanding of the countries fascinating history, from the early conquistadors to the Cold War, the impact of trade embargos, today's communist political system and an understanding of significant events in world history.
