Cuba Up Close™ and Sippican Lands Trust are teaming up once again to offer a fun- filled exploration of Cuban culture, food and the people. The Sippican Lands Trust and Cuba Up Close™ have created a special 8-day, 7-night exploration of Cuba tentatively planned for Saturday, June 4 through Saturday, June 11, 2022. Check this once-in-a-lifetime trip off your bucket list and visit a vibrant island country that has changed little in over 50 years.
