Gay Love Spirit macht sich für das dritte Kuba Abenteuer bereit. Zunächst sei gewarnt: Warte nicht zu lange falls du Kuba besuchen willst. Das Land ändert sich rasend schnell. Kuba ist ein sehr geheimnisvoller Ort mit vielen Wiedersprüchen. Kubanische Zigarren, Salsa, wunderschöne Männer, traumhafte Strände, Städte im prächtigen Kolonialstil – und nicht zuletzt eine nach jahrelanger Unterdrückung aufkommende schwule Szene.
Kuba hat sich zu einem angesagten schwulen Reiseziel in Latinamerika entwickelt. Möchtest Du mit uns kubanische Männer, Künstler und Musiker kennenlernen und mit uns dieses wunderbare Land auch durch ihre Augen entdecken? Dieses Mal kombinieren wir Havanna mit dem Süden. Zunächst werden wir Havanna aus verschiedenen Perspektiven entdecken.
Nach ein paar schönen Tage in Havanna fahren wir nach Santiago de Cuba, dem Geburtsort vieler kubanischer Bands.
Note: This is a sample program, based on last years trip. Each trip is unique. This year we will explore the surroundings of Santiago more instead of going to Baracoa. We will do more off the beaten track travel bringing you in contact with the real Cuba.
Day 1: 4th January. Most of you arrive in the evening. We’ll have a lovely welcome dinner in our guesthouse.
Day 2: 5th January. We have a morning tour of Centro Havana and Havana Vieja, the old colonial heart of the city. Our gay guide will tell us about the history of gay men in Cuba, and the situation nowadays. In the evening we have the Gay Love Spirit Workshop „Find yourself, love yourself“ with Moxe, together with a few local Cuban men. Some of them will come for the second time. In the evening it’s time to dress up and party.
Day 3: 6th January. Today we head to the beach for some more socializing, together with some men of the workshop.
Day 4: 7nd January. This morning no program as some of you might want to sleep a bit longer. But it’s easy to explore the area around our guesthouse, full of ancient houses and very hard to get lost. In the afternoon, we’ll do a trip with Old Timers to the Hemingway House and the Havana Forest.
