If you're a die hard fan or looking for some quiet outside of Havana I would recommend. Great musicians playing in the outdoor bar; the house itself can only be seen from windows and open doors and the staff is just there for security purposes instead of providing any information.

This is an absolute must for Hemingway fans, but some of my travelling companions, who were less sure about making the trip out of Havana, still found the visit very interesting. Not being able to get inside the rooms is actually an advantage, because you can see them free from other visitors, and there are plenty of viewing points. Most interesting, perhaps, is the obsessively scrawled record of his weight on the bathroom wall. From the lookout tower you'll get great views over to Havana and the Caribbean beyond, and appreciate the apt choice of name for this house. Be sure to walk down past the swimming pool (now empty of water) to see Hemingway’s famous boat, the Pilar, which was brought over from Cojimar (something of a logistical challenge I think). Also close to the pool are two small rooms with some very evocative photographs of Hemingway. I’d advise giving the souvenir shop a miss – nothing much of any actual worth on sale there. But, in a small building to the side of the house, a local artist was selling some excellent prints, including one that I picked up depicting an image from “The Old Man and the Sea”. Hemingway was at home at the Finca Vigia in 1954 when the news came to him that he had been awarded the Nobel prize for literature following the critical acclaim that this book had received. He said: “This prize belongs to Cuba , since my works were conceived and created in Cuba…..” And many thanks to the security guard at the gate who saw me taking some photos and gave me an old but precious set of three postcards of Hemingway fishing, taken by Raul Corrales. The Cuban people are just great!!

This property is a few miles from Havana and it is worth getting a taxi or taking a tour to see it. You peek into the various rooms thru windows and doorways as all the furnishings and decorative objects are original to the home. Photography is allowed. If you are offered a tour, take it as the guide will point out and tell stories about many of the objects. Afterwards, be sure to take the path to see the pool, pet cemetery ad Hemingway's boat, the Pinar. Allow a good hour to see everything.

I was very disappointed with this museum. You cannot go inside the house so you're looking at everything through doors and windows. I didn't get a feel for Hemingway and who he was.

I enjoyed this site, seeing the actual items preserved from its original form. Have tips ready so that the employees posted in the building can take photos for you. It's really worth it.
