AFROLATINO TRAVEL CALLS themselves “the premier travel and culture resource of the African Diaspora in Latin America and the Caribbean.” They consult travelers on destinations and areas that are significant to Afro Latino history, they help build itineraries, and they provide travelers with general information on Latin America’s connection to their African heritage. For example, for travelers in Cuba, the agency suggests visiting the Callejon de Hamel where you can find the work of AfroCuban artist Salvador Gonzalez. They also advise on areas like El Carmen, Peru; Bluefields, Nicaragua; Bahia, Brazil, Guerrero, Mexico and others. The organization also partners with grassroots organizations within these countries to make sure travelers learn about the positive work already being done on the ground.
