12 Things you can’t miss in Havana, Cuba
1. Morro and the forteza
2. Avenida de los presidentes
While walking this beautiful street, pay attention to the amazing architecture around you!
3. Hotel national at sunset
This is definitely something you have to do! The Hotel Nacional in Havana is one of the most famous ones in Cuba! From the garden, you can have a drink and enjoy the breathtaking sunset over the malecon!
4. Habana vieja
The historical part of the city! Get lost in the small streets of the Habana vieja!
5. Fundacion Guayasamin
Guayasamin is a really interesting artist from Ecuador. he was friend of Fidel and Raoul Castro and also portrayed them in some of his paintings. The foundation Guayasamin shows some of his artworks. I really suggest to see it.
6. Plaza de las armas
In this beautiful plaza, surrounded by decadent and fascinating buildings, there is an amazing flea market you can´t missed. I loved to see all those used books of poetry and cuban literature.
7. Enjoy a beer at Plaza vieja
This plaza is one of my favorite part of the city. It´s actually also where we lived. We slept in a casa particular right here. After a long day of sightseeing, everything I wanted was a beer here, relaxing, enjoying some live music and resting a little bit.
8. A daiquiri at the Floridita
Everyone talk only about the Bodeguita del Medio, but it´s not the only historical bar in Havana! Don´t forget to have a drink (I suggest a daiquiri) at the Floridita! You can enjoy the amazing artist playing salsa music for you! This is a bar where Ernest Hemingway used to go as well!
9. Museo de la revolucion
Cuba has a interesting and complicated history behind it. To understand it´s culture better, it´s really interesting to visit the museum of the revolution in Havana.
10. Carneval in august
We were super lucky because we happened to be in Havana in August, when the carnival of Cuba takes place! In every city there are parties on the streets and in Havana we enjoyed a beautiful street parade right on the malecon! I think I don´t need to tell you it was an amazing experience. 😉
Just jump into a cab and drive 20 minutes away from the city to enjoy a beautiful beach where real cubans spend their free time.
This place is also renamed “Fusterlandia” because it´s a small part of the city which is decorated by Fuster, a cuban artist, which filled Jaimanitas with his mosaics. This work of public art is spectacular and is definitely something you can´t miss if you´re around Havana.
