Cuba: Havana

Visit Us

Havana is one of Latin America’s most evocative and intriguing cities - famously stuck in a time warp, with crumbling façades and junk shop furnishings, it streets choked with one-gear bikes and classic American cars. Technology-free, it embodies 1950s nostalgia. Nowadays a lot is being done to restore the baroque colonial buildings and squares, there are new restaurants and smart hotels, and local people are more involved in the modern economy. But the place hasn’t lost its romance, its colour, its spontaneity, or the ever-present reminders of its unique modern history. Just shut your eyes and listen to the music...

Hitting the Hemingway trail, visiting the author’s old haunts in shadowy bars and at the waterfront, fortified by ice-cold, minty mojitos.

Watching the workforce hand-rolling cigars, surely a dying art, in the age-old way.

Strolling round the Museo de la Revolución in the ornate former Presidential Palace, bringing alive the extraordinary political story of modern times, with some extraordinary photos and mementos.

Walking the length of the breezy sea-wall malecón, or promenade, accompanied by Caribbean sea views during the day and bands of musicians, street vendors and couples by night.

What our experts say

I love to walk around Havana's restored colonial centre. Owing to its unique history the city has many squares, streets and buildings which retained their original colonial architecture and design, now gracefully spruced up.
