Join renowned travel journalist and Cuba expert Christopher P. Baker on National Geographic Expeditions’ 8-day ‘Cuba: Discovering its People & Culture‘ program and experience Cuban culture the most authentic way possible—through its people


Yes… you can still travel to Cuba legally by joining a licensed group ‘tour.’ In June 2017, President Trump only banned independent travel by individuals.




No other entity offers such a richly rewarding in-depth study of Cuba as National Geographic Expeditions.

Prize-winning writer and photographer Christopher P. Baker, author of National Geographic Traveler: Cuba and hailed by National Geographic as “one of the world’s leading authorities on Cuban travel and culture,” will accompany a number of departures as the National Geographic Society’s Cuba expert.


On these unique and inspiring programs, Christopher will introduce you a fascinating medley of Cubans from all walks of life. Get acquainted with Cubans in diverse settings, from Old Havana to the French-infused city of Cienfuegos, plus the charming colonial of Trinidad, and engage them directly in discussions about their lives and work, culture and traditions. Meet with Cuban historians, teachers, students, artists, naturalists, and others, and experience this fast-changing island nation through their eyes.
