Visit Cuba's museums and cultural institutions. Experience the beat of "rumba" drumming and dance. Travel by bus through Havana Province to experience rural Cuba, learn about Afro-Cuban religions such as Yoruba, and see the beautiful city of Cienfuegos, whose colonial architecture has made this town a UNESCO site.
