Popular location for Cubans with many shops and restaurants
Jan 2020
While we were there, some kind of festivities took place there, the surrounding streets were closed off to traffic and there were plenty of various booths/kiosks selling food. Of course, the plaza was teeming with Cubans, who were strolling, sitting and checking out the attractions. Unfortunately, it was impossible to purchase any Cuban beer anywhere nearby and only after searching several stores I managed to buy German-made beer “Heineken”, created to commemorate Havana’s 400th anniversary. Very close to the Plaza was a Communist Party of Cuba Provincial Head Office—since there were a lot of photographs hanging in the lobby (most likely related to the Cuban Revolution), I asked if it was possible to take a look at them, but the guards did not let me in.

Cuban life
Dec 2019
This is the center of Cuban life, in Santiago. Besides nice spots for eating and drinking close by, you will see Cubans enjoying life.

Very well presented park
Oct 2018 • Couples
The park is well maintained and has plenty to keep your interest in terms of statues and structures. Plenty of seating and WIFI available.

A really good place to rest up and people watch if you are walking around - ice creams available if the heat is getting to you.

Plaza de Marte
Dec 2018 • Solo
This is a very nice plaza to relax, people-watch or otherwise just chill-out. It is centrally located and very busy as most roads lead into the plaza. There are some great monuments and other historic artifacts worth viewing.

The venue is a hot spot and for visitors like me I was able to access by using my Etesca wi-fi card (prepaid).

Go on Saturday Night
Dec 2018 • Couples
We went here on a Saturday night when the streets are closed off. People of all ages are there playing, singing, and dancing. There are food areas that serve a high variety of things. It's amazingly fun.

Spacious square
Jan 2018 • Friends
As others have said, this is a large square at the top of the hill at the end of the pedestrian street. It has monuments and to Cuban independence and obviously to Marte.
It's a popular place too as it's got wifi
