The People-to-People initiative requires Americans to take part in various cultural experiences in Cuba, essentially, as the name implies, putting them in direct contact with the people of Cuba with hopes of learning about the way of life in the country. It was implemented by President Clinton in 1999 and suspended by President Bush in 2004 before President Obama resurrected the program this January.

Highlights include; a chance to learn about the Botanical Gardens of Cienfuegos and their ties to Harvard University; visiting the Cuban Fine Arts Museum; meeting the students of a primary school in Havana; a harbor cruise with local fishermen who share their way of life; a stop at the home of Ernest Hemingway to explore his love of Cuba and its people; and even a hands-on pottery class at a ceramic studio during which the owners discuss passing down the traditions from generation to generation.
