Havana is by excellence one of the most spectacular places to spend your vacations. It is a city where the modern and the historical converge, where you are forced to concentrate on your free time due to the characteristics of the country. Cuba, it’s a very unique place. The main tourist attractions of this city are in its center. NosotrosCubaneamos proposes three main routes in Havana:
The first tour dedicated to Old Havana (the historic center of the city), which is done on foot to get to know the 4 historic squares of Havana, is a beautiful tour where you will get to know part of the history of Cubans. A second tour dedicated to the modern part (this is done in a classic car). And finally a third tour that is “Havana inside” to learn more about Cubans.
In Old Havana or the historic center of the city, you will walk through the 4 squares (Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de San Francisco de Asis and Plaza Vieja), famous bars such as El Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio, and others economic and with good views. It also includes other non-tourist sites of interest where you can appreciate the daily life of the Cuban and observe the reality in which he lives, (what we call “cubaneo”) is a bit long because there are many things to see, but it is very pleasant and interesting, it is resting: enjoying parks, architecture, history, tradition, culture. Craft fairs will be visited where you can buy souvenirs. Normally it lasts from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm.
On the second day the tour is dedicated to the modern part of the city, stopped in the 50s. This tour is done by car that can be in collective taxis or in a classic car at the customer’s choice. We visit the Plaza de la Revolución (where the Che monument is, very famous), the neighborhood of Vedado (University of Havana, National Hotel (the most prestigious hotel in the country and with a lot of history), Focsa building: it has a great view with panoramic of the city, Callejón de Hamel (mural painting related to the Afro-Cuban culture) and the neighborhood of Miramar: is a residential neighborhood with the 5th avenue and the community project “Alegría de Vivir” with much influence of Gaudi (famous Catalan sculptor) , the forest of Havana, the neighborhood of New Vedado, the Paula Venue and the remains of the wall of Havana, the Cemetery of Colón and the Chinese Cemetery.
For those who want to know the Cuban very close, the option of collective taxis is recommended (according to the excursions and the place where they are located). It is a very beautiful experience and an adventure to share transportation with other Cubans.
The third and last tour in Havana that NosotrosCubaneamos proposes is “Havana inside”. On this tour you will get to know the reality of the Cuban people, you will visit neighborhoods and markets that Cubans visits in his day to day. A very entertaining tour without a doubt.
