Yachts, channels, beautiful marina and surroundings. Great for pictures and to experience the historic riches of the city.

On a corner in the middle of a little village, we entered to find a sweet man playing and the table and chair roped off where Hamming way sat! Lots of photos fill the walls and tales of the great man himself. We enjoyed a cool beer here and chilled out to the sound of the waves and music. Very,... More

The old man and the sea hotel is closed and the fountain empty except for the statue of an old man and a fist. The marina is run down, tired, and reminiscent of Russian buildings. A definite PASS on this marina.

We took a special trip to go to the marina from Old Town Havana to try and get great fishing. The whole marina seemed "out to lunch" in every sense. We did eventually get sorted out with a possible fishing boat but the Captain was so disinterested we felt there wasn't any point going, plus it could be dangerous as... More

we were driving 100 foot motor Sailer during the tail end of hurricane Sandy so you could say it was a case of any port in a storm. There were a few boats in the Marina when we arrived and after clearing official formalities as well as being sniffed over by the cocker spaniel drug detector retied up. I have... More

I took part in the Ernest Hemingway billfishing tournament and it was just amazing for my friends and I to enjoy the facilities of the hemingway marina in these five days. It was cloudy the last day, though, but we had the opportunity to caught some marlins of more than forty pounds. I indeed recommend it for fishers. George

We were passing, so dropped by. This a fairly large marina complex with just a few boats, a hotel that was closed in October, another AI hotel that the gate guard wouldn't let us access, and a couple of attractions such a a small poorly stocked mini supermarket and a bowling alley which we didn't visit. There. 4 canals, each... More

Marina is OK, but the real attraction is the great, but expensive grocery store/mall next door to the Marina complex. You can buy real coke here. A shopping destination of Cubans with money and diplomats.
