Havana is probably the most enthralling city in the Caribbean; a combination of magnificence and crumbling decay.  If you try to visualise the city in your minds’ eye, you will probably conjure up beautiful colonial buildings, perhaps the epic waterfront Malecon drive, or even one of its iconic old American cars.  All those things are there, much in evidence, but Havana has so much more than that.

Of course, you should spend time wandering the gorgeous cobbled streets, marvelling at the architecture which has (and continues to be) beautifully restored and preserved, come across stunning squares and visit the cathedral, the Capitolio building, the Museum of the Revolution.  But if you really want to get under the skin of Havana, venture further afield to the city’s other districts or go and see some places that other visitors miss out on.

La Bedeguita del Medio

Famous for its Mojitos, is a great place to also enjoy lunch which from time to time give you offers that are great value for money. Live music is also a reason to visit this famous place.

Plaza Vieja

Arguably one of the most beautiful squares of Old Havana.

For art lovers, you really need to visit Havana’s art factory (properly known as Fabrica de Arte Cubano) which is an incredible place buzzing with energy. Housed in a former olive oil factory, this is a true centre for arts – with theatre, dance, visual arts and music.  There are places to eat and drink there too so can spend an entire evening if you want to get a full sense of the place.  There is always something happening here and you can easily while away a few hours without realising it.

Does Havana have a beach area?

Well, yes but it is about 25 mins away. Playas del Este are where most of Havaneros go. There is a bus service that takes you there on a Hop on / Hop off basis. There are a few locations that you could stop by but Santa Maria beach is one of the best.

Havana can be noisy, chaotic and, occasionally, incredibly frustrating but it is also one of the most exciting places you could visit.  Cubans are very resourceful, they have had to be over the past few decades, and this resourcefulness is now showing itself as small businesses start up, as Habaneros, young and old, begin to welcome change.  There is much to do and still an awfully long way to go until Cuba can be considered to have the same standards as other nations but one of the most often given reasons for travelling there is that people say they want to see Havana before it changes, thinking it will become, again, almost a satellite US state, a party place for wealthy Americans.  I’m not so sure that will ever happen again.  Cubans are fiercely patriotic and proud of their country and their heritage and have a strong sense of their cultural identity. So, my advice is to visit now, while it’s changing.  See for yourself this beautiful city and meet its wonderful people as they move forward.  Visit and be part of that and, in years to come, know that you were there during this amazing period in history.
