Born in Cuba in 1961, Peter was just six months old when his family left for Buenos Aires. After a brief exile in Argentina and Chile, his family landed in Los Angeles, California, where Peter grew up, like many Cubans in exile, within two cultures simultaneously.
Thus the term Cuban-American. Peter, always felt a connection and a yearning for his native Cuba. Like many Cuban exile kids, the parents and extended family had a lot to do with the first generation living their traditions and cultural heritage. By 1996, he was travelling to Cuba and beginning to elaborate the idea of creating a company that would share the best of Cuba with the US, but also bring the best of the US to Cuba thereby building cultural bridges, good faith and hope among two peoples that had always had a natural affinity for each other. By anchoring on Cuba’s rich artistic and cultural heritage, he organized his first groups for the Bienal de La Habana in the year 2000, and every year since.
He has explored the island from end to end in the company of the best historians, artists, architects musicians he derives the greatest joy firm sharing Cuba wihh his travelers.
Our two week trip was a great experience. The staff was impeccable with every aspect of the journey, from arrival in Miami for the charter flight to the amazing restaurants, walking tours and music excursions. To coordinate over 150 travelers for a premium tour would have been impossible without their wealth of knowledge and attention to detail. For myself, the band, and many of our guests, the trip was one of the best experiences of our lives!
