I've led several student trips over the years, organized by a few different vendors, and I can easily say that our group's trip Cuba was the smoothest, most rewarding and magical experience I've had! Sylvia shared with us her authentic and compassionate perspective of Cuba, and every one of us came home having learned something important. We had a good balance of fun activities (a cave disco and a gorgeous beach) along with things like a visit to a struggling community that found a way to work together to improve life in the neighborhood (Muraleando). Above all, Sylvia was really on top of anticipating the needs of our group. As the faculty leader, I often found that just as I began to realize that we were going to need something, she was already taking care of it! As we passed through customs on our way home, the other faculty chaperons and I joked about how life-changing it would be to have a "Sylvia" around all the time to help us! I would recommend Colibri Boston to anyone considering a trip to Cuba.
