Havana: Breathtaking atmosphere, musical scale and unique tradition characterize this amazing city. The capital of CUBA is definitely one of the most charming cities I have ever seen. Visit the city with a vintage car, you can find a lot of them in the whole city. Avoid to ask drivers that are in front of the “CAPITOLIO” they are more expensive. I made the experience that you have to ask 2-3 drivers for the cost so you get an idea of how much you can pay for it.
HAVANA – MUST SEE PLACES:
– Habana Vieja with its colonial architecture and its plazas (Plaza Vieja, Plaza Catedral and Plaza de Armas)
– Malecon (Havana’s most popular road where the waves hit the promenade)
– Capitolio (recalls the United States Capitol in Washington)
Tours from Havana
I made also a tour to Pinar del Rio and to the Mural de la Prehistoria. I went there with a vintage car taxi and he took me to a “casa particular” for lunch. A casa particular is a private house where the Cubans offer some dishes. Some people on the web say it is a trap, but I realized that it is a great experience as you get plenty of good food and a warm (mi casa es tu casa) welcome.
The best bars of Havana
The best bars you should visit are the “Bodeguita del Medio” and the “Floridita”. They are really famous because of the frequent visits of Ernest Hemingway. In Havana I had the most delicious mojitos and margaritas I ever had. Everywhere you will find live music and that really gives you a special feeling as you can see in my photo gallery and my video.
