- I stayed three days in Havana Vieja which was about right. There are lots of interesting buildings, some in bad repair but a lot of renovations are underway at the moment. As with any capital city, there are scammers but they will take a polite 'No' and move on. The open top tourist bus is a great option to get an overview of the whole Havana area. Plenty of reasonably priced bars and restaurants also.Written November 26, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Can't come to Havana and see the cathedral. the square is lovely and largely restored and the cathedral entrance is free. Avoid a lot of the touts trying to get you to their restaurants, as the better ones are off the square. The plaza is a straight line walk from Prado.Written September 18, 2023
- Such a cool little homage to Gaudi! ~20-30 minutes west of Havana - must come and check out the amazing tiles and artwork all around this area. You can also go into little shops where folks are painting or making souvenirs.
Highly recommended trip - won’t take more than 1 hour to see most of everything. There may be a stand on the corner you can get some delicious churros with chocolate!Written December 3, 2023
- Nice place where you can find different types of music and art and spend some time at a good atmosphere. Must to see in Cuba.Written December 10, 2023
- Morro Castle is a must-see historical site for anyone visiting Havana. The castle offers stunning views of the Havana skyline and the ocean. The architecture is impressive, and the history of the castle is fascinating to learn about. You can explore the interior of the castle, including the various rooms and corridors, and learn about its role in defending Havana.Written November 25, 2023
- An interesting perspective on Havana through art.
The museum has the exhibition’s broken down by time periods in the history of the city as seen through art and the artist. It is a nice collection and of interest for the eye.Written September 2, 2023
- We had a two day stay in Havana, on one of our previous visits the Capitolio was being renovated. However this time we saw it’s full glory.
Completed in 1929 it’s slightly taller than the similar structure in Washington DC . Initially Congress was held there before the revolution.
However I hadn’t fully researched and wasn’t aware that you can actually walk the 56 steps and look at its interior - big mistake.Written December 20, 2022
- This is the oldest of the four mains squares in old Havana and if you are in Havana you should see it. The square dates from the 1700's.Written May 9, 2023
- I made a stop at this huge square during a tour in a classic car. There was not much shade and it was hot. Make sure to wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Overlooking the square is the Jose Marti Memorial with its tall tower and statue. The square is surrounded by government buildings of which two have huge murals of the revolutionaries, Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. There were also several classic cars parked in the parking lot.Written September 20, 2023
- We went to Playa Santa Maria del Mar which is very popular among locals. We purposely picked a Sunday knowing it would be somewhat crowded with families and others from the area. Great cultural experience. There was some loud music and trash (most of which was picked up upon leaving). The beach is stunning with dunes and great vegetation. There was also a shack that had the freshest grilled snapper that I had during my stay in Cuba.Written April 8, 2023
- What I came to Cuba for! Really interesting to see the furniture in place and all Hemigway's books and possessions. Disappointed that the dining room was cleared of furniture as I really wanted to see that. Also the tower where he wrote was closed up. I liked the visit to the Pilar, his boat which is now in the tennis court.
The main thing though, although I knew about it before we visitred, was that one could only look into the rooms from outside. I can understand their reasonings. Was also disppointed not to see any cats arouynd as I was under the impressions there were dozens of them, descendants of the original Hemingway animals.Written January 31, 2023
- One of the best places I’ve ever seen I like how active this place is always many people passing tourists it’s really niceWritten April 13, 2023
- I visited the theatre 🎭 two weeks ago it was really nice specially the building outside and the details. I sit every night in the bar just next to it to see the details of this beautiful building, but the inside the big stage was close cause of renovations I would love to see it all inside .Written April 13, 2023
