well, well this is my third visit to havana city and I am happy to say that I have had a wonderful time in this beautifull place and most of this great experience is due to havanatours.nl travel agency who provided us with an excellent service during our stay there; humble, smiling and profesional staff always happy to scort us on our trips through the city either on a bike, on foot or in amazing road trips in the most efficient and fancy american old fashion cars I have ever seen, visiting places with a lot of history and dipping into the real Cuban culture all over the city. I just have to say thanks a lot for the amazing time you gave us and that I hope once I come back you will be there still to show us more from this beautiful country.

very exciting to visit the place Hemingway wrote and lived. It is about 30 minutes from Havana by Taxi. all furniture and books are well kept.and even Hemingway's coat. But visitors are not permitted to enter into house. So some staff may take photos for you in the house and ask for tips.
we were lucky that day was sunshine.

Have visited 3 times now and still love it. House has been left in its original state. All is viewed from the outside through the windows. I recommend getting a guide who will have lots of Hemingway anecdotes. Don’t miss the Picasso. It’s about 15kms outside Havana but definitely worth the taxi ride.

A short ride outside of town brings you to the Havana home of Ernest Hemingway. Left to the state by his 4th wife after he died, the house maintains most its original belongings minus a few pieces that she had recreated. We were only allowed to view the home and tower through doorways and windows and received an explanation from someone who we felt we were interrupting to show us around and explain the history of the home. Overall a lovely experience, but visitors may want to read up on it to have insight rather than rely on the staff.

Ernest Hemingway lived here and it is interesting to see.
There is no access to the house and I was taking some photographs through a window when a lady opened it and offered to take some for me. Of course she wanted a tip and she wanted US dollars not Cuban Pesos.
There were other women around the grounds that were willing to take photographs but I had been stung already. They start by asking where you are from. They don't care where you are from. They just want your dollars.
We had our own private guide who explained some things to us.
It is worth a visit and one of those things that one just has to do.

The Finca Vigia is living history and highly recommended. Ernest Hemingway’s home in Cuba is preserved as if he was still living there. His clothes are still hung in the closet, hundreds of Books are found in every room! Certainly worth the trip!

What I came to Cuba for! Really interesting to see the furniture in place and all Hemigway's books and possessions. Disappointed that the dining room was cleared of furniture as I really wanted to see that. Also the tower where he wrote was closed up. I liked the visit to the Pilar, his boat which is now in the tennis court.

The main thing though, although I knew about it before we visitred, was that one could only look into the rooms from outside. I can understand their reasonings. Was also disppointed not to see any cats arouynd as I was under the impressions there were dozens of them, descendants of the original Hemingway animals.

Worth the time and energy to visit. House left ‘as it was’ when Hemingway left. You cannot enter the house, but doors and windows open so you can get a real feel for the place and take some good pics. Enjoyed the 60 mins we spent wandering the grounds

Please check closing time, we reached there at 3.15 and they said it was closed. Had to go back next day. Website says till 5. Nice place, lived in a beautiful place. It’s still set up like how he lived. First time I found that the Souvenir shop was lot an arm and a leg price wise. Worth a visit. Wish I could have a place like this one day!

The domaine and the house are in a poor state of conservation.
One can still imagine what it's glorious past must have been.
After thourough restauration, it might recover its majestic looks.
You cannot visit the main house inside. The windows are the only way to get a glance how the writer was living here.
