Cuba Architecture Tours, Authentic Cuba Travel's Foundation


Authentic Architecture Cuba Tours for North American Architects, Urban Planners, Architecture Professors and Architecture Professionals.

Cuban architecture is a unique combination of colonial and modern structures giving the island a very distinct architectural landscape, while differences in pre and post-Revolution architecture provide valuable insight into the changes that the island has undergone over time. If you are looking for more than the chance to walk around and catch a glimpse of some of Cuba’s most famous structures, architecture tours to Cuba from Authentic Cuba Travel are certainly the right choice.

Travel to Cuba for just a “fun-in-the-sun” vacation is not even legal for US citizens, so why not consider authentic Cuba tours that are licensable for architecture professionals and educators? We make it our goal to ensure that each and every traveller is able to get a feel for the real, authentic Cuba that lies outside of Cuban beaches and resorts, and our Cuba tours can help you see the island in a brand new way while complying with US Cuba travel regulations.

The escorted Cuba tours from Authentic Cuba Travel are always led by university educated guides. This means that we can take you beyond looking at Cuba’s unique architecture and can tell you the stories and histories behind it. Our Cuba architecture tours take you up close and personal into some of Cuba’s most interesting and historic cities, while providing you a look into our architectural history in a way that few others could.

If you have always longed to study and explore Cuban architecture outside of the internet and classroom textbooks, let our Cuba travel experts help you get a front row seat to the best that Cuba has to offer!

Cuba's Architecture Overview

Throughout Cuba, you can find some of the most well preserved and biggest cores of Spanish colonial architecture in The Americas. This is one of the many reasons that Cuba architecture tours are one of the most frequent types of specialized tourism to Cuba. Authentic Cuba Travel gives visitors the chance to travel to those important historical sites whether they are found close to urban cities or in remote picturesque towns, and to hear from Cuban architects and locals, the authentic Cuba history behind them.

During the period spanning from 1512 to 1519, Cuban governor Don Diego Velazquez founded the island’s first seven settlements: Santiago de Cuba, Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion de Baracoa, San Cristóbal de La Habana, San Juan de los Remedios, San Salvador de Bayamo, Sancti Spiritus, Santisima Trinidad, and Santa Maria del Puerto del Principe, now known as Camaguey. Today, much of these settlements remains intact and holds its original charm and antiquity, which can be explore on Cuban architecture tours from Authentic Cuba Travel.

With incredible variety and a stark contrast between colors and textures, Havana is certainly one of the most architecturally impressive cities in the world. But Havana is not the only city of architectural significance and beauty in Cuba... Read More

Notice to USA Architecture Organizations, Academic and Educational Institutions, Secondary Schools and similar:



In January 2016, the US Government has announced further enhancements to the 12 categories of authorized travel to Cuba that previously required a specific license (this is, lengthy applications to OFAC). Now travel to the Caribbean island is allowed under a general license (this is, self-completed paperwork with no application to OFAC needed).

Subject to criteria established for each general license in the Federal Register published in February 1, 2016, travel to Cuba is permitted for educational and academic institutions.

The purpose of the Cuba travel should be for:

_ the participation in a structured educational program offered for credit as part of a course of the sponsoring institution;

_ educational exchanges sponsored by U.S. secondary schools for secondary students to take part in courses or structured program offered by the secondary school or other U.S. academic institution provided that a reasonable number of adult chaperones escort the secondary students in their Cuba trip.

_ educational exchanges not involving academic study to promote people to people contact.

_ attendance at non-commercial academic seminars, conferences and workshops related to Cuba sponsored or co-sponsored by U.S. academic institution.

_ non- commercial academic research related to Cuba for the purpose of obtaining a graduate or undergraduate degree;

_ the participation in a formal course of study at a Cuban academic institution provided that credits will be accepted toward the student’s graduate or undergraduate degree;

We take care of all details both in North America and in Cuba, including VISA and flight arrangements to Cuba’s main destinations via USA ports (Miami, Tampa, New York, or other) or through third countries like Canada and Mexico. Authorized US organizations can travel through a third country subject to the same restrictions and requirements as those flying directly from USA.

At Authentic Cuba Travel, we have been organizing such educational Cuba travel experiences for US educational institutions for many years with great success.
