The Bodegita is a small bar restaurant not far from the cathedral. It is well known among tourists to enjoy a mojito and where Ernest Hemingway visted.

Always packed and over priced. Nothing really to see and it is on a narrow street with not much around it. Popular because of Hemingway but not worth the time or money.

We actually stayed above here in an apartment so saw a lot of partying. The street is closed to traffic which is nice so people party outside. Looked like a lot of fun if that's your deal. Good for a pix as it's famous and...More
