History is being made with a group of New Mexicans traveling to Cuba for the first time since the US legalized travel there earlier this year.
The New Mexico Jazz Workshop is sponsoring a trip to the land of Rumba, Ritmo and Rum with the theme “Havana, Then and Now.”
Cuba is the birthplace of the Cuba Libre, the Cha-Cha, Mambo and Latin Jazz and travelers on the Jazz Workshop tour can drink in the rhythmic music for seven days and six nights starting March 16th through March 21st 2016.
This is the first organized trip to Havana from the New Mexico Jazz Workshop since an embargo was first imposed by the United States on Cuba in October of 1960. It came after Cuba nationalized American-owned Cuban oil refineries without compensation.
The cost of The Jazz Workshop Havana trip is $3,749 including hotels, meals, and day trips. The tour leaves from Miami.
