Explore the best of Cuba City Havana Activities
Your guide will pick you up at your Casa Particulare after breakfast, around 09:00. Habana Vieja is the atmospheric heart of La Habana and there are a cluster of museums here including the Museum of the Revolution & Museum of Fine Art, but our walk will feature the beautifully preserved colonial plazas of Habana Vieja and neighbouring streets where Cubans live alongside visiting tourists, kids go to school, locals play games of chess or chequers in the street, sipping coffee from 'peso cafes' and all life seems to be happening in these atmospheric streets. Your Cuban guide will recommend some of the best bars for mojitos and live music and give you insights how Cubans live today in this complex and beguiling country. At some point to suit your preference we will take a classic convertible car tour to some of the further flung parts of La Habana not easily walkable. There are many options depending your preference but we recommend buzzing through the city to the Plaza de la Revolucion, a scenic drive along the Malecon and under the 'tunnel' to the Fort del Moro (best views across the city) before returning to Old Habana for drop off in Parque Central where your 'walking tour' of the classic sights of Old Habana will continue, finishing back at your Casa late afternoon.
Salsa lesson at the famous 'Casa del Son' in Habana Vieja. One-to-one tuition means that from beginner to advanced your dance instructor will take you through your paces and build your confidence and enjoyment in this amazing dance so beloved of Cubans. We need to get the basics right before heading to a salsa club after dinner!
Your guide will pick you up at your Casa early evening - or having made a dinner reservation for you - from a restaurant of your choosing. There are MANY nighttime options in Habana, as you might expect. Bar 1830 is a great live music and outdoor salsa dancing venue or if jazz is your interest we recommend La Zorra y Cuervo or Jazz Café. Fábrica de Arte is amazing for a bit of everything and there are many cabaret options such as Casa de Musica and nightclubs. Your Cuban guide has all the local knowledge and will make you comfortable wherever you decide to go! [taxi fares and entrance fees not included but your guide will advise beforehand and make sure these are appropriate]
