Cuba is an amazing country that is on most travellers’ bucket list, and for a number of very good reasons. It is one of those places that grows on you: for as shocking, different, difficult and at times simply frustrating.
But if you actually want to experience the local Cuban culture and to see things that typical Cubans find interesting, then the Real Havana guidebook is right for you.
The trip starts the Cuban way, with a mojito. Hemmingway’s favorite comes from la Bodeguita del Medio.
As you wonder through Old Havana’s many squares you’ll be swept away by their beauty. My favorite, Plaza de Armas.
Explore Old Havana and Central Havana. This is best done on foot. Spend a few hours or a day in each location (depending on the length of your trip).Old Havana is touristy and the main language spoken is English, but it’s all part of the experience.
