This visit allows you to enjoy the beautiful views of the Viñales Valley, while walking, and also at the different stops, you can see how different products of the area are made, with the characteristic tobacco and coffee plantations. You will have the opportunity to taste the authentic Cuban cigar, coffee, honey or rum typical of the "Guayabita del Pinar" area. We will continue to the cave of silence (optional), where we will make a visit, and finally you can relax at the lake where you will have free time to bathe, and eat something in the restaurant that is in the area, where you can enjoy charcoal food , as a specialty, or something to snack on, if they wish. Later, we will return to the beginning of the route.

We had been able to contact the theatre through Facebook before we travelled to Cuba, so knew that there was a contemporary dance event scheduled while we were there.. It was easy enough to buy tickets on the afternoon of the performance (starting at 5pm by the way); a good seat cost 30 CUCs, so pretty good value. The theatre itself is spectacular, and the show was excellent – definitely worth seeing what’s on. I think there are guided tours, but have no information about these. We also sat in tha cafe/bar in the arcaded forefront of the the theatre and there was an excellent band, with mostly female musicians (for a change!), playing while we were there.

We couldnt possibly go to Havana and not visit the famous Gran Teatro - a beautiful theatre and famously home of Mr Carlos Acosta (my wife's favourite dancer). We saw some contemporary ballet - and had great seats. Well worth a visit.

Amazing place! We went on a tour with a lovely young guide - she told us loads about the history and seemed genuinely proud to be a custodian of such a wonderful building and all the history that it holds. Beautiful sculpture of the dancer Alicia Alonso, held close to all Cuban’s hearts, and we got to go into the theatre too. Would have loved to get to see a performance, but sadly our timing in Habana didn’t allow for that. Tour was 5CUC per person (5CUP for Cuban nationals); tickets for the shows are currently 30CUC for tourists (significantly cheaper in CUPs for Cuban nationals which I personally think is brilliant - attempting to make arts and the theatre accessible to many). Really recommend the tour and if you can, to see any performance.

Beautiful Building. We were lucky to go to the ballet, which was outstanding. We did a tour the following day. The guide was both informative and friendly. Ballet is a very important part of Cuban culture and this is very apparent here.

Home of the famous Cuban Ballet, founded by the legendary ballerina Alicia Alonso is really a fascinating building from the outside whether you see it during the day or at night when it is beautifully lit. It is almost next to El Capitolio and to see them at night, both beautifully renovated and so well lit is a great experience. I would definitely recommend you to go there at night at least once. To see a performance here would be a lovely experience too. I was lucky to see a ballet here with the late Alicia Alonso very close to my seat. I was thrilled to see her but they didn’t let me go near her and get a signature.
