Havana features a perfect balance between the historical and modern, feeling like a city right out of the 1950's. Factors which have greatly influenced today's Cuba include, Spanish and Caribbean cultures, early 20th-century American sentiment and communist ideology, which has ultimately resulted in creating an urban fabric unlike that of any city in the world. Havana has an aura about it that is romantic, exotic, and unexplored. It is the intangible beauty, the joy of its people, the rhythms of music, and the history in the veins of the city that make Havana unforgettable.

What Our Students are Saying
"Nothing could have prepared me for the cultural differences that exist between my own culture and that of Havana and Cuba, but in working to bridge the gap, I found that every day was a rewarding experience."
Alexander Y.University of Alabama - Birmingham
"Studying in Cuba was the best experience I have ever had. With ISA and the local guide, I was able to fully dive into the culture. Without the program, I would have never been able to experience Cuba in such an authentic way."
Danielle C.University of Tennessee - Knoxville
"Going to Cuba was the most important experience of my life. It was not always the most fun experience because it was challenging and forced me to use my own strengths that I do not use when I am home in the United States. I think of Cuba every day and really miss it."
Edward B.University of Tennessee - Knoxville
"ISA offered a perfect amount of activities, excursions, and free time in a different country. There was a little bit of everything you could have wanted all wrapped up into one perfect learning abroad experience."
