Cuba: The Road Less Traveled at San Antonio

Tuesday, April 5th at 7pm – Quarry Market store

Travel restrictions to Cuba have been eased. While it’s still not possible to visit the island solely for the beaches, food, music and cars, with planning, you’ll be able to experience them first-hand. Hostelling International’s Al Martinez will tell you how to plan your adventure to this special place in his talk Cuba: The Road Less Traveled at our San Antonio store on Tuesday April 5th at 7pm.
