This is an old warehouse of some kind - its a bit of a walk from the cruise ships to get here. There is little reward for your travel in my opinion here. There was terrible smell of cow manure, cigar smell, and sweat that...More

I'm of Chinese descent, and haggling is our hobby. It gives me a thrill. When I say I found this place more overwhelming than some streets in China, take it as a fair warning. There are also semi-scammers and beggars lurking about, so don't stand...More

There are plenty of places to buy souvenirs in Old Havana and around town but this market has a wide variety of choices. I was able to find magnets, humidors and art that served as excellent gifts and mementos. My friend found more of the...More

This was a very stressful experience! I wanted to pick up a few souvenirs but anytime I stopped to look at anything the owner of the booth would start waving different items at me trying to sell everything in his (or her) booth! Awful. I...More
