Experience an exclusive trip to Cuba with KCTS 9!

For the first time in decades, Cuba’s doors are open to American travelers. Be one of the first to experience this communist isle before it changes. Stay six nights at the historic Nacional Hotel where Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Franklin Roosevelt and a host of celebrities have stayed. See the magnificent architecture and hear about its fascinating history. Wander the colorful plazas of Old Town, dine in Havana’s top private residences, visit the National Museum of Fine Arts, have a mojito at Floridita Hemingway’s bar, enjoy the vibrant music and dance, then cruise the Malecón in a perfectly restored 1950s convertible Chevy. This custom “People to People” journey has been specially designed for the KCTS 9 traveler who is interested in music, art, history, architecture and culture.
