This tall tower/monument is situated in the middle of Revolution Square. Jose Marti was an early prominent revolutionary, poet and writer. Apparently vultures continually fly around the monument on the thermals which our guide intimated may have some significance even today.

What you would really enjoy is the elevator ride to the top of the monument where you get a 360 degree view of Havana. Docents are available. It may have cost 3 - 5 CUCs. It is definitely worth the investment. The views are... More

When we went, we flew JetBlue. They made it so easy. Filled out forms with JetBlue online and picked up visas when we landed in Ft. Lauderdale.
