Absolutely amazing place to just take in. It is truly incredibly important as it was here that many of the first speeches and gatherings of the revolution took place. Not much to it, but still cool to check out!

This is just a big open square surrounded by important buildings. You have the monument of the revolution one one side and ministerial buildings not the other three sides. On the square there is no shade.

What makes this zone the magnet for all tourists is the display of 50s and 60s convertibles and the showpiece examples of the much loved older autos for hire. The square undoubtedly is massive in its historic and symbolic importance i remember watching black and...More

This is a large plaza or gathering area in Havana. Several large buildings around. Lots of history. We had a tour guide through Belver (highly recommend) who taught us lots of things which was very helpful. Nothing was going on the day we were there...More

Not sure who that is. There are a few tour guides (English speaking) that are wonderful. Susie Soto is one whom I would highly recommend.

When I went here in September we hired a classic car. Nice way to do it since it is more of a drive-by kind of place in my opinion. As far as cash, CUC is the only way to go. I had 500 Euro from a previous trip which made... More
