This is a must-see in Havana. Although I have been there dozens of times, I never get bored. The interior design of Heminhway's house is so beautiful and the garden is a relaxing place. No more freshly squeezed sugarcane juice unfortunately :-(

This location is a great source of pride in the region. The home is beautifully preserved as it was when it was last Hemingway's home, including the famous craft Pilar.

The visit was part of a planned excursion from Royal Carribean. We were told that we could not get in, that no one could as the preservation aspect kept it sealed. However, from reviews here, it appears that is not true. The surrounding neighborhood is...More
