Just sit at Parque Central and enjoy the view. You travel back in time. We were able to enjoy a wedding couple pass by in a 1950's convertible down the street

Been around in Cuba for 25 days manage to visite the island from west to est and I really believe that old Havana is the most culturally rich place in all CUBA ✌️😁

It's really amazing cultural experience, staying in Habana Vieja. Lots to see, to walk around, go out for food and drinks. Recommend staying there if you go for a visit! Me and my friends stayed at casa particular, which I totally recommend, instead of staying in an hotel, specially if you look for more cultural experience.

Old Havana is home to amazing plazas, museums, architecture, and some of the best paladares in Cuba. It's definitely worth saving plenty of time for, and I'd recommend a guided walking tour to get the full scope of the history around you. There will be Cubans dressed in traditional clothing or walking on stilts who you will be able to... More

Havana is one of the most incredible places we have ever visited. We had booked to stay for five nights in Havana before travelling onto Varadero for 7 nights. We wished we had booked more nights in Havana as we missed it when we left. There is something to see on every street corner. It is a lively, busy place... More

I stayed in central cuba for 12 days, about a 15/20 min walk to Parque Central where Old havana starts. It's very important that you remember that here is where it leads you to different things. You need more than a a few days to really try to see everything. From the park you position yourself where you can start... More
