I am OBSESSED with Havana. There is so much soul to this city and is really unlike any place I’ve ever been before.
I knew this was a special place from the minute we arrived. We spent the day bar hopping amongst Havana’s trendiest spots. Daiquirí Limón from El Floridita, Mojitos at La Bodeguita del Medio , more mojitos at El Dandy. That night we hailed a 1950s Chevy to take us to dinner and drove down the Malecón with the wild sea spray crashing along the wall and spanish music blaring from the speakers. A long dinner on the terrace of El Cocinero restaurant with delicious Carribean lobster was followed by a few hours at Fabrica D’Arte listening to Cuban musicians and enjoying amazing artwork.
Even if you only have 2-3 days for a vacation, it’s worth it for a quick trip down to Havana. Below you’ll find some tips for a trip to Havana, and be sure to check out this post that has more advice on traveling to Cuba.
