    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.

    I took a trip here via the tourist bus which was very straightforward and took about 30 minutes for 5€. The bus departs every 40 minutes. Sun loungers and umbrellas were very cheap (150 cups). The sand and sea were very clean and it was very relaxing. There weren’t many facilities but there was a nearby cafe and people selling drinks on the beach.

    One of the center places and squares in Havana. Medium sized square surrounded by nice hotels, Capitol and Prado street that divide Old Havana (Habana Vieja) and Central Havana. Place that you must visit if you are here.

    Renting a driver with a classic car and spending an hour walking through the forest in Havana is a great idea! It looks more like a jungle than a forest. The only thing I highly recommend is to ask for prices before you order a water, beer or sandwich from the wee place at the edge of the Forest. I'm sure you can try to negotiate cuz it's ridiculously expensive. Buyer beware. You are not going there for dining anyway - so I have to give it five stars for beautiful nature. So much green!

    This is a relatively nondescript square in the centre of Vedado, now famous for the bronze image of John Lennon sitting on one of the iron benches – you can sit next to him for a photograph, but there is no sign of the national health-type spectacles that used to sit on his nose – they were regularly removed by souvenir hunters! It’s a bit of a way out of the centre, but if you’re on a classic car ride the driver will probably pass by the square, so you can ask him to pull up for a moment.

    Once you Navigate the channel entrance to the Marina, your first stop is aduana (customs) they will search the vessel looking mostly for forbidden items. (Guns, packaged electronics intended for sale,..) they will assign you your slip. They will have dockhands to catch your lines. Once you get to the slip the dock master followed by the doctor will visit. The whole check in process took me 1-2 hours. Tipping is not mandatory but a good gesture. Instea did $ i gave away sets of snorkeling gear I bought in Walmart for $30, they were happy.
    The Marina has concert walls to dock side. So have fenders ready.
    - For ice restocking visit any of the cafe or restaurant on site & will sell you an ice page for $1-2CUC
    -To go to town.taxi are available on south west side of canal 1 for $20-25 CUC. Or for the adventurous, & with little Spanish you can walk out of the Marina & flag a car on the street (sometimes they just stop when they see a foreigner) negotiate a price $10CUC is what i pay
    - car rental: there is a Havana car rental office on the NE side of canal 1 across The hotel. Car rental is expensive in Havana, expect to pay $70-80 per day, with no long-term rent discount. I rented a scooter for $20 per day & used it to get to old Havana.

    It is a great time to spend time with the family, specially the small ones. They can be entertained learning about animals and have fun. They offer two different shows, one with dolphins and one with sea lions, but for me they cost quite a bit and they last for less than 30 minutes each. I still recommend this place to go with your family. Also, children may take pictures with the animals

    Great green oasis in the middle of Havana if you love flowers, trees, and animals. Ticket includes guided tour which was great. We saw humming birds, lizards etc. Well worth a visit!

    Deep Blue waters with the most amazing White Sand in and out the waters . You may expect rain showers during summer time. Close to the city of Havana, 30 mins by car or taxi. Taxi drivers will wait for you until you are done! Always carry cash while you are in Havana. If you don't know how to swim, around the first 25 feet of water are very shallow. Perfect for family and friends reunions.

    The statue of Antonio Maceo is very beautiful. It is very detailed and quite amazing to see. The park itself is different. When I think of the word park, I see more green than concrete, but this is different. A huge patch of concrete with patches of green and a huge fountain that does not work. The park also is quite exposed to the sun, making it a very harsh place to sit/relax or take in the sights.

    Havana has many green spaces and treed avenues outside of the old city but all are part of the fabric of normal city activity.
    Quinta de los Molinos, situated on Avenida Salvador Allende and within a short walk north-east of the Plaza de la Revolución, is a refreshing respite from the surrounding ado. For $5.00 CUCs, one can immerse themselves in a number of themed gardens, stroll in a tranquil environment, enjoy the company of butterflies in their pretty pavilion, or watch a variety of resident birds, some endemic to Cuba.
    Some areas of the park are a work in progress while others hold temporary exhibits. Signage and park employees can provide identification. Note that the park is built on the former site of tobacco mills, later developed into the estate of General Maximo Gomez although evidence of either can’t be seen.
    It’s easy to spend a few relaxed hours here so bring refreshment, as nothing is available close by.

    If you wish to have a change of scene after exploring the wealth of old-style architecture in Havana, this is your answer. A very pleasant escape from the busy scene beyond.

    Who was Fidel Castro's hero? The answer is simple: Jose Marti, whose picture and statue is everywhere in Cuba, including 200m from this park.

    Who was Jose Marti's hero? Also simple: Carlos de Cespedes, a Cuban writer and revolutionary hero, a former wealthy plantation owner who freed his slaves in 1968 and started the Ten Years war against Spain. In 1869 he became President of the Republic of Cuba. The Spanish deposed him and killed him in 1873.

    Um so what? Well who was Carlos Cespedes' hero? What caused a wealthy plantation owner to free his slaves and take up arms against Spain? According to Fidel Castro, the answer was Abraham Lincoln. So far as I know, there is only one monument to Lincoln in Havana (or maybe in all of Cuba, not sure). It is in this park, easy to visit, and next to the vaunted Ceiba tree, which is said to bring luck to those who walk around it three times.

    Cespedes, Marti, Castro. Castro saw himself in their tradition, which is why the only mass-produced photos of Castro you usually see in Cuba are the ones showing silhouettes of the three men and the phrase "Una Sola Revolution" ("One Revolution"). Personally, I wish they would put Lincoln on the sign and adhere to his ideas about human liberty, but maybe someday...

    BTW, again according to Castro in his oral biography, Lincoln was so popular, that a significant portion of Cubans wanted to make Cuba a state of the US. Unfortunately for these folks, Cuba was so popular with Confederate slaveowners that a large number of them gave up their plantations in the US and moved to Cuba, where slavery remained legal until 1886.

    All worth thinking about when you visit the Lincoln statue.
