As we approached Hanana you can't help but notice this statue on the far shore by the castle you need to catch a taxi if you want to visit this and the fort

Must see from a perspective standpoint! It was made by a woman, so it indeed was a work of art predating equal treatment of men and women.

El Cristo de La Habana was a stop on the tour of Havana. There is an overlook that is a great place for pictures as well.

This trip is 10 cents on the ferry and an easy walk up to see the Jesus statue and a nice respite from the hussle of Havana

Pretty impressive statue, but the view of the city is worth the ride up to it. One of the sights you can see from the cruise ship and be able to get up close to it.

I would not bother to take the ferry. Instead I would hire a cab. Avoid the nearby restaurant, Dona Carmella's.

Thoughts on our Havana itinerary? (12 Replies)
Hi Cuba experts! I wanted to run my first attempt at putting together an itinerary for Havana. We are there Monday to Monday (with one member of our group arriving Tuesday afternoon). We have a driver for Tuesday through Saturday and plan to do a Vinales day trip on Thursday. We are staying at a Casa in Vedado and our party is comprised of two grandparents (in their 70s with some mobility issues), 4 adults in their 20s-40s, and 2 littles (ages 2 and 4 and both are pretty chill and good...More
