Are You Interested in Going to The Havana Jazz Festival Tour

Since 1981, Havana, Cuba has been home to the Havana Jazz Festival; a gathering of some of the most talented performers from around the globe. Authentic Cuba Travel is proud to bring you the 2012 Havana International Jazz Festival Tour!

About the Festival

The 28th International Havana Jazz Festival, or Jazz Plaza 2012, is sponsored by the Cuban Institute of Music and has been organized by world-renowned, 7-time Grammy winning musician Chucho Valdes. This year’s festival will run from the 20th to the 23rd of December and will take place at a number of locations in the historic Cuban capital. The tour itself spans from December 16th to December 24th.

Visitors and guests will find that the Havana International Jazz Festival is an event that no jazz lover should miss. In the past, the festival has played host to such talents as Dizzy Gillespie, Ronnie Scott, Luis Monge, The Ronnie Mathews Trio, and many more. In addition to global talents, you will find that the festival brings out Cuba’s finest jazz bands and soloists. Whether you want to experience the main performances or to enjoy the late night jam sessions between artists, you may wish to book your travel now, as festival tours are selling out quickly.

Visitors will find that live music and excitement will be on offer at venues throughout the city. The festival allows you to experience some of the world’s most amazing musicians while taking in the splendor of locations such as Karl Marx Theatre, Mella Theatre, Casa de la Cultura de Plaza, Palacio de La Rumba, and Casa del Alba. The festival is a unique opportunity to experience jazz music on the very island where it has its roots.

The Tour Experience

By booking a Havana Jazz Festival tour with Authentic Cuba Travel, you will get much more than just the chance to hear some of the world’s most remarkable jazz musicians. The tour will take you to some of Havana’s most important and historic locations, including a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You will also receive full access to all of the festival’s concerts, including premium seating at both the opening and closing ceremonies.

Booking a tour with Authentic Cuba Travel allows you to truly see why Cuba is one of the most remarkable islands in the Caribbean. While US-Cuban diplomatic relations are strained, relative isolation has helped keep the island authentic and provides a more genuine Cuban experience for travelers who have the chance to visit. Your tour itinerary will offer the chance to see the best that Havana and Cuba have to offer, including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Cienfuegos City, Old Havana, Vinales Valley, and Trinidad. You will also get the opportunity to attend the shooting of the 9 O’Clock Cannon, a historic tradition that dates back to the 16th century, when a cannon shot was fired to signal military men to retreat from their positions and was later used to signal the close of the city walls during colonial times.

Literary and history buffs will also have the chance to experience the world as Ernest Hemingway did during the many years that the island served as his home. You will get the chance to explore Hemingway’s long-time home of Finca Vigia, where the writer spent more than two decades. You will also get the chance to tour the fishing village of Cojimar, which served as the inspiration and backdrop for Hemingway’s famed novel The Old Man and the Sea. In the village, you will find a bust of the author commemorating his impact on the village and its economy. Hemingway, like many visitors to Cuba, was renowned for his appreciation of fine Cuban cigars, and your visit will offer you the chance to tour the famed Partagas Cigar Factory, which has been in operation since 1845.

Hemingway isn’t the only local celebrity that plays a role in your tour experience. When you book with Authentic Cuba Travel, you will have the opportunity to rub shoulders and engage in conversation with many of the island’s most remarkable artists. Festival goers frequently get the chance to meet many of the performers, and your tour includes the opportunity to enjoy a lunch hosted by Jose Fuster- one of the island’s most renowned painters and ceramists. You’ll also get the chance to enjoy a private meeting with world famous architect Miguel Coyula during your visit to the Scale Model of Havana. Coyula is also Havana’s city historian, and his knowledge and appreciation for the city are certain to provide you with a deeper love and appreciation for Havana.

A Havana Jazz Festival Tour with Authentic Cuba Travel offers the chance to experience all of this and much more. A detailed itinerary leaves no stone unturned, providing beautiful accommodations and the chance to explore much of what makes Cuba one of the most amazing and enthralling travel destinations in the world. From breathtaking castles to the Jazz Festival itself, your tour creates an experience unlike any other.
