Discovering Havana

A major touristic location, the Cuban capital has a lot to offer to its visitors, from delicious food to amazing history and religion. While discovering Havana, tourists will be able to take in a vibrant cultural city that cherishes its historical past, and a cosmopolitan capital with a diverse nightlife. Here is an overview of the best Havana attractions that you can start exploring once you’ve checked in at a casa particulare or a hotel.

Havana Tourist Attractions

1. Visit La Plaza de la Revolucion for a taste of a historical past combined with architectural developments. There you can see the 138 feet tall Jose Marti memorial tower that dominates the whole square. For a small fee, you can witness a spectacular view by climbing up the tower. Behind it there are the political offices where Fidel Castro spent most of his time. Opposite you can admire the Minister of Interior, with its famous mural of beloved guerrilla fighter, Che Guevara.

2. For those of you who have a sweet tooth, you should think about checking out the Museo del Chocolate (Calle Amargura, La Habana). You will see the process of making chocolate up close and leave with some delicious treats of your own. What other better way of discovering Havana?

3. Another great Havana tourist attraction is Hemingway’s former residence, now a museum. Moreover, if you happen to be a fan consider exploring the American writer’s other side. Sipping daiquiris at El Floridita or ordering another Mojito at La Bodeguita del Medio, the point is to do what the great master himself would have done. Enjoy yourself!

4. If after a quick tour of the bars you feel like having a puff, go visit Partagas Factory, and roll your very own Cuban cigar. And what does accompany a smoke better than listening to some good music? Salón ‘Compay Segundo’ may be an excellent starting point.

5. The best way to get to see Havana’s beauties is, no doubt, by foot. And while you’re doing that, make sure you stroll down the colorful, narrow streets of Habana Vieja (Old Havana) neighborhood.

6. El Morro is another must-see attractions in Havana. The lighthouse that you will see when entering the harbor offers stunning views, especially at sunset. You will also find plenty of souvenirs there, from pictures to key-chains. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes when you go there, as there is a lot of walking.


Whether it’s a peaceful holiday you’re after, or a mind-blowing cultural experience, then start discovering Havana and planning your next trip! Havana will seduce you with its warm weather, vintage cars, cocktails, unique history, and soulful music.
