Hotel Cozumel room

cuba - Central

may 30th - June 6th, 2020

Your trip begins with environmental experiences in the northeast coast of Cuba in the sleepy town of Santa Lucia where horse drawn carriage taxis are the main transportation.

Spend 4 nights conducting marine research from the all inclusive 4 stars hotel Las Brisas, in Playa Santa Lucia, northern coast of Camagüey Province, protected by a long coral reef only 1.5 miles from shore. The seabed supports an astonishing variety of marine life and several sunken ships dating from the 19th century.

The centerpiece of the Central Cuba itinerary is the bull shark population in Nuevitas Bay of Santa Lucia, where visitors will dive and participate in a shark conservation program led by a local Cuban marine biologist.

Capture photos and help gather details for our 2nd ecological book. Then, you’ll spend the weekend in private, chic homes in the quiet, clean art colony of Camagüey – world renowned for its pottery. If you’ve ever been to Havana, you will appreciate Camagüey’s fresh, clean air with flourishing artists of all kind—devoid of street hustlers.
