Havana

A trip to Cuba is incomplete without visiting fabulous Havana. Much of the city has been locked in time since the revolutionary fifties, most classically symbolised by the fantastic selection of old American classic cars, which somehow manage to keep going!

Old Havana is now a World Heritage Site, where many of the centuries-old buildings having survived years of neglect are now being meticulously restored in their original style. Some of these have become hotels.

There is a lot to take in here for the culturally-minded including the magnificent Plaza de Armas, the imposing Castillo de la Fuerza Real and the beautiful Palacio de los Capitanes.A trip to Cuba (1)

Havana is also the home of the Daiquiri, so there’s plenty of opportunity to explore Cuba’s rum culture, perhaps in one of Ernest Hemingway’s old haunts such as El Floridita or the lobby bar of the Ambos Mundos hotel.
