The stadium is in a bit of disrepair and leaving game 7 of the semi finals was challenging with few open exits and teeming people. Also, the bathrooms are typical of Cuba. I wish we brought our travel pillows to sit on! Seating is on...More

If you want a great glimpse into a bit of Cuban culture, you should really try and see a baseball game in Cuba. We watch Havana Industriales take on the Matanzas Crocidilios. The quality of baseball is about the same as a triple A game...More
