Lovely during the daytime, a bit seedy at night. An old promenade that makes up the grand entrance to the Malecón.

Living just off this street - we walked it on several occasions and got a really good "look" at Havana. The central walking area is "tree lined" and shady and there are plenty of stone benches if you get tired. On both sides you see the old cars flying past, there is a great collection of old buildings and the locals and kids walking updown, make it a great place to hang out.

If you're planning a trip to Havana, do your best to make it on a Saturday morning and catch local artists as they flog their wares up and down Prado. Artists line the concourse from around 9am - noon and you can find a wide variety of pieces, from traditional tourist art to unique one of a kinds! Further down towards the Malecon you'll find locals offering a night's accommodation in their homes, (licensed by the gov as bed & Breakfasts) .... there are great galleries, restaurants and shops also lining both sides of this busy street. Old havana is just a stone's throw away, as is the National ballet, capitol building and more.... my favourite part of town!

Paseo del Prado is a great place to wander along and sit to watch young (and old) attempting to master the Tango.

Really nice area to watch the locals socialise and walk along from the Museum of the Revolution.

We walked on the Saturday and discovered that this is where the locals market their properties for sale. Being in the property software and website industry this fascinated me. The locals sit and stand with prices or wood, cardboard or just paper with photos stuck to them and bullet points of what they are selling. A fab and social way of doing business and gives you an insight into the living accommodation of Cubans
