Cosy square with some nice places to have lunch or drinks. Sitting outside in the bright sun at noon may be a challenge.Umbrellas are scarce. Sit inside. But for drinks late afternoon and evening super. Nice music.

Fabulous architecture with excellent photo opportunities. A honey pot for tourists - you will be approached by people asking for money, some can be very persistent.

Large, busy square near the cruise ship terminal. Lots of attractive buildings. A good place to sit and people watch. As is the case with all tourist spots in Havana, there are plenty of people asking for money. If you have your picture taken with one of the colorfully dressed natives or musicians, be prepared to tip them.

Eat at one of the surrounding cafes and enjoy people watching. More classic colonial buildings in a most impressive City.
