Three opportunities for you to enjoy May Day in Cuba in 2012

Each of CSC's fantastic May Day trips offer the opportunity join more than one million Cuban workers as they march through Havana’s Plaza de la Revolución on 1 May 2012. They provide a wonderful opportunity to see the real Cuba away from the usual tourist trail and allow you to experience Cuba’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

The route dips and falls alongside the turquoise blue Caribbean to Trinidad, Cuba’s best preserved colonial town and UNESCO World Heritage site.

Monies raised will go towards purchasing essential educational and musical equipment for young visually impaired Cuban school children and the Teatro Miramar Project, a community theatre which is being restored through monies raised by the Music Fund for Cuba.
