What travelers are saying
- Havana has lots of lovely architecture, beautiful squares to wander round, with cafes, restaurants and street artists. The streets were not rushed and not much traffic, but then it's not full tourist season. The roads are full of potholes so expect to be shaken about a bit! The air is very smelly from the car fumes but the cars are lovely to see. A tour in one is a nice experience and a good way to see and learn about the city. The side streets are a bit rough around the edges and there are many touts wanting you to change money. They do leave you alone if you say no and walk on but it gets a bit tedious as they are round every corner and on every street. The streets are strewn with rubbish and potholes along the paths mean it's easier to walk down the roads and that's not too much of a problem in August as it's fairly quiet. In my opinion a good time to go! Everyone wants Euro or Pounds in preference to Peso so better not to change much money if any. There are some lovely restaurants and cafes in the squares and not expensive compared to most capital cities. The people are very friendly and helpful and happy to sit and chat to you though not too many can speak English so though quite challenging was also rather fun. Tourists are completely safe walking around even in the evening so explore both day and night.

- Definitely worth a visit, the best of the squares in Havana. Lovely to walk around and take in the Cuban life. Some beautiful buildings, some of which are cafes and restaurants and one a micro pub. We were on a tour with a guide during the day and visited here but decided to come back to see it in the evening. It has a lovely fountain and a bit of a weird statue and while we were there there were ladies in Caribbean attire looking very colourful, old ladies smoking big, fat Cuban cigars and men walking on stilts. This makes it sound showy and lively but it was a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. The restaurants upstairs have balconies on which to sit while eating and watch the world go by. Quite a romantic setting in the evening for dining out and yes most restaurants are aimed at tourists but still felt very Cuban.Written August 8, 2022

- Tour was in understandable English, took 45 minutes and cost 120 pesos per person. Unfortunately there is a lot of repair work still being done in crucial parts like the main hall. Was nice to stand on top of the buildingWritten July 26, 2022
- Cathedral Square is one of the four main squares in Old Havana and the site of the Cathedral of Havana from which it takes its name. Following the construction of the Cathedral in 1727, it became the site of some of the city's grandest mansions and to this day is one of most busy places in Old Havana.Written July 3, 2022
- The house was really beautiful, but unfortunately it is forbidden to enter the rooms. You may have a look at the rooms through the windows and open doors.
It is interesting and the house and the surrounding Parker very beautiful .Written May 7, 2022
- The Malecón is a broad esplanade, roadway, and seawall that stretches for 8 km along the coast in Havana from the mouth of Havana Harbor in Old Havana, along the north side of the Centro Habana neighborhood and the Vedado neighborhood, ending at the mouth of the Almendares River.
I went almost all of this road. It os interesting walk but on the other side you see that this city needs a lot of improvements and renovations.Written July 3, 2022
- Definitely go to this beach if you have a stay in cuba. You just take a local bus.. takes about twenty minutes. There is a cafe restaurant at te entrance and there is also a little bottle shop where's you can buy some booze to take to the beach. There are locals walking the beach with snacks and drinks. The sun. Beds are of varying quality with shade cover... also of varying quality. The water is amazing. Go for a day Ormond half a day at least.Written June 13, 2020

- I am sure this is the biggest cemetery in the world - maybe China or India can compete but wow - I've never seen such a big old cemetery. I don't know how to RATE a cemetery. It reminded me of New Orleans but ten times the size.Written April 26, 2022
