One of the great attractions of this city is Old Havana (Habana Vieja), its old town. Woven by a labyrinth of delightful alleys, this neighbourhood was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. One of its most important corners is Plaza de Armas, headquarters of the Governor’s Palace (Palacio de los Capitanes Generales) and the Morro Castle. In addition to monuments that leave the newcomer speechless, you will also find handicraft markets.
Do not miss the unforgettable Malecón, a unique promenade with a soundtrack played by street musicians. In any case, the truth is that any space in Havana is perfect to enjoy Caribbean beats. You can also visit the many salsa or jazz clubs, where you can delight yourself with the best music while sipping on a glass of rum, a daiquiri or a mojito.
Visit the neighborhood of Havana Centro too, with its iconic Paseo del Prado dominated by the unmistakable silhouette of the National Capitol of Havana (1929). The same could be said about Revolution Square (Plaza de la Revolución), where there is a second-hand book market.
Another place that deserves your attention is the neighborhood of El Vedado, created in the 19th century and with landmarks such as the Christopher Columbus Cemetery and the famous Rampa (or 23rd street), which is the center of Havana’s nightlife. Right next to it is Playa-Miramar, a residential area dotted with mansions and estates. There are also marinas and the exclusive Fifth Avenue.
It is also convenient to mention the beaches of the East, where you will find the most famous seafood restaurants in Cuba, Las Terrazas, which feature in two novels by Ernest Hemingway.
If you are passionate about cultural tourism, get ready to fully enjoy your trip to Havana. There you will find buildings with centuries of history, as well as a first-class museum offer. Surrender to the Museum of the City, in the Governor’s Palace, and to the National Museum of Fine Arts. Inaugurated in 1918 in the heart of the Cuban capital, this institution exhibits important samples of Cuban, Ibero-American and international art.
An ideal option to visit Old Havana is to ride on a horse-drawn carriage, on a route that starts right in front of the Capitol. Another great idea is to rent an almendrón, the traditional vehicles of American origin that managed to survive the Revolution.
Would you like to treat yourself to a special evening? If so, be sure to discover the Gran Teatro de La Habana, home to the National Ballet of Cuba and a few steps from the Capitol, and the famous restaurant La Floridita. Another reference of the Antillean scenic arts is the Amadeo Roldán Theater, where you can attend dance or music shows, played by the National Orchestra of Cuba.
If you're tempted to go shopping in Havana, there's nothing better than taking a walk down Empedrado Street. Do not hesitate to wander around its bustling craft stalls. This same artery also accommodates another of the great claims of Havana: La Bodeguita del Medio, an establishment where you can savour the aroma of an authentic Havana cigar.
Of course, we could not forget the pleasures offered by Cuban cuisine. All those who wish to taste typical local dishes, such as ropa vieja or fried beef, should book a table in the best restaurants in Havana. One of them is Casa Miglis, whose stoves are dedicated to Swedish-Cuban gastronomy.
We could not forget to mention the beaches of Havana, that go from the Malecón to the sandy beaches of the East. All of them are ideal to sunbathe, swim or contemplate the most beautiful sunsets in Cuba. Among the most beautiful beaches of Cuba and its surroundings, it is worth mentioning Guanabo, Santa María del Mar, Mar Azul and Jibacoa, a natural sandy area that unfolds in a calm and peaceful bay, halfway between Havana and Varadero. And that's not all: it is also an ideal setting for diving in Cuba, exploring the secrets of a beautiful barrier reef.
There are many traditional festivities in Havana that will help you immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of Havana.
The festive calendar starts on New Year's Day, on January 1, with the celebrations commemorating the triumph of the Revolution. The following month, in February, you can visit the International Book Fair of Havana, located in the imposing fortress of La Cabaña, next to the Tres Reyes del Morro castle.
In April, it is the turn of the International Festival of Old Havana, an event that hosts demonstrations of classical and modern dance, crafts, parades and concerts. No less interesting is the Santa Blues Festival, created in 2005 and dedicated to the musical genre that gives it its name. The concerts are held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and boast the participation of top-level artists.
This is the prelude to the Carnival of Havana, which takes place in July. On the 16th of this month, the area of Cojímar lives the celebration of the Virgen del Carmen festival, where there is no shortage of dances and typical product tastings.
In September, you must dedicate some time to discover the International Biennial Theater Festival of Havana, and between October and November, the International Ballet Festival of Havana. The 10-day International Festival of New Latin American Cinema and the Jazz Plaza International Festival end the season on the last days of the month.
