The group has several trips planned for the year, including visits to countries such as Peru, Brazil and Cuba.

Ever been curious about Latin America’s African history? A new travel collective is making it easy to do just that.

AfroLatino Travel is more than just your typical travel agency. Instead of booking tickets and finding hotels, they consult, build and create trips focused on exposing travellers to Latin America’s African roots.

In Cuba, for example, the collective suggests checking out the Yoruba Museum to learn more about the Orishas, or heading to the Callejon de Hamel, where one can see the artwork of AfroCuban artist Salvador Gonzalez.

Beyond Havana, Afrolatina Travel can advise travelers where they should go to explore Afrolatina history and culture in Peru, Nicaragua, Brazil, Mexico and beyond.

They also work with various groups in these countries, providing opportunities for community-building and activism.
