The Greater Peterborough Chamber has partnered with, Collette Vacations,in creating "Rediscover Cuba - A Cultural Exploration." Some of the sights in Havana will included the Cathedral de la Havana, the Museo Fine Arts, the Museo de la Revolucion that displays historical documents and artifacts and La Marketa de Havana in Old Havana, a collective of small-craft workers.
Among other sites were author Ernest Hemingway's farm and Playa Giron/Bay of Pigs Museum. We felt frozen-in-time when we saw the classic, vintage cars which line the streets.

Traveling to Cuba has been open to international travel and it is just recently that U.S. travelers have been able to visit. President Barack Obama lifted some travel restrictions in 2009 and began allowing cultural tourism groups to travel to Cuba in 2011.
