February 27, 2024 Cuba: My New Friend
Cuba, a country only a five-hour plane ride away, I did not know much about before my experience. I was able to build an intimate connection with its friendly people, history, politics, and economy. Cuba is a beautiful country, and their struggles should not be overlooked. I learned the importance of changing American attitudes ... - Nazareth College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Abroadia: Havana - Cuban Culture Program

A student studying abroad with Abroadia: Havana - Cuban Culture Program
I learned so much about a country that is so close yet so mystical. I feel like just being there and learning from locals and seeing it for myself is the most worthwhile. The trip had opportunities to really expand my understanding of global relations as well as history and the arts. I really enjoyed my time in Cuba! - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
While being in Cuba, I learned a lot about the complexities of class. Specifically, I learned about the possible relationship of capitalism and socialism, the ways in which they can work against yet with each other, and the effects of both situations. - Lafayette College View Entire Review
I made new friends, learned about myself, and learned about Cuba. It was 100% worth it and I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone! - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I gained a better understanding of myself and the world around me. I was very nervous at first since I had never flown abroad alone before, but the second I stepped out of the Havana airport I was greeted by Abroadia and I knew I never wanted to leave. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I learned about the history of Cuba and the everlasting impact of the revolution which ended in the 20th century. I learned about food, architecture, culture, and more. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review

About

Infamous and colorful old cars. A mix of different cultures. 200 bays and 250 beaches. Discover the Cuban lifestyle and practice your Spanish in Cuba, the largest islands in the Caribbean! 
With an average temperature of 26°C (79°F) all year round, its unmatched landscapes and rich culture, Cuba will surprise you in ways you could not imagine. Cuban people are the most friendly and patient in the world. Having endured difficulties created by a 60-year old embargo, they have proven to be extremely resourceful with a joie de vivre that surprises many visitors to the island. 
You will study at the Universidad de La Habana, the oldest university of the country, and choose between a Spanish or Cuban culture class. For those interested in volunteering, you will be given the chance to visit a school in Havana to help Cuban students with their English. Our program will also take you to an excursion to discover the fantastic landscapes of the island. You will have the amazing opportunity to experience the Cuban lifestyle and live in homestay with a local family to be fully immersed in the culture.
