EXPLORING HAVANA CUBA


EXPLORE MYSTIC HAVANA

Havana is the capital city of Cuba and one of the largest and most vibrant cities in the Caribbean. It boasts an old town area, a 19th-century district of densely packed, houses and narrow streets contrasting with the high-rise city center (Vedado). The sea wall, known as the Malecon, extends for 8km and is a popular walking spot. Havana's best beaches, the Playas del Este, are about 20km from the center.

Exploring la Habana Vieja is a must. The streets and alleys of this colonial-era city center have been perfectly restored. You can visit the plazas, churches, and forts here. The Calle Tacon market is great for souvenir shopping and a walk along the Malecon in the afternoon is a great way to finish the day. The Hotel Nacional is a good place to grab a cool drink and enjoy the setting sun from their "Compass Card" outdoor terrace.
