Havana Holiday

Nearly all Cuban Holidays start in the capital city of Havana, with its legendary faded beauty and deep soul. Wonderful old vintage American cars navigate the cobbled streets of this crumbling capital, where old taverns are full of patrons sipping zesty mojitos, playing dominoes and arguing; creating the vibrant heartbeat of this charismatic Caribbean island.

What is there to do in Havana?

Havana is a seductive and magical city with endless entertainment, intriguing museums and a culture like no other. Wandering the narrow streets in the historic quarter you will see Habaneros, (Havana locals), queuing up with their ration books, against a backdrop  of  tourists taking pictures with the latest SLDR cameras. Havana, and Cuba, is complex and contrasting.
  • Take a walking tour around Old Havana
  • Visit Cuban artist's studios
  • Drive around Modern Havana in an open top classic car, or choose to do the same following the 'Mafia' tour of Havana!
  • Visit a cigar factory, or try cigar and rum tasting
  • Experience a ballet rehearsal or show, from the fabulous Cuban Ballet
  • Take dancing lessons or drumming lessons
  • Take a tour of Havana, including the Revolution Museum

  • The nightlife of Cuba is perfect for all ages to enjoy, with jazz bars and salsa clubs open all night. There are also a number of newly established private restaurants that are cooking the best food in the island.

    There is a reason Ernest Hemingway made Havana his home, and why Ernesto Che Guevara adopted it as his country, and why Celia Cruz, the salsa queen, sung so passionately about this island. Go, and let your soul fall in love with Havana!
