Havana, Cuba

Havana is the capital city of Cuba and one of the largest and most vibrant cities in the Caribbean. It boasts an old town area, a 19th-century district of densely packed, houses and narrow streets contrasting with the high-rise city center (Vedado). The sea wall, known as the Malecón, extends for 8km and is a popular walking spot. Havana’s best beaches, the Playas del Este, are about 20km from the center.

Exploring la Habana Vieja is a must. The streets and alleys of this colonial-era city center have been perfectly restored. You can visit the plazas, churches, and forts here. The Calle Tacón market is great for souvenir shopping and a walk along the Malecon in the afternoon is a great way to finish the day. The Hotel Nacional is a good place to grab a cool drink and enjoy the setting sun from their "Compass Card" outdoor terrace.
