About Havana

In the heart of Cuba, lies the capital city of Havana. The much-loved city of Havana didn't miss a chance to make it to a hit song by Camila Cabello! No wonder half of her heart is in Havana. This city will bind you into a never-ending spell and will probably keep half of your heart! It is a perfect mix of modern as well as vintage style life as well as architecture. Old Havana is more inclined towards the vintage era and other parts of Havana are slightly more modern. The city is famous for the crystal clear beaches it has to offer along with clear white sand to soothe our wandering souls. Havana is the largest city in Cuba. Being the capital of Cuba, it is rich in culture and has a lot to offer. The cuisines, cultural performances, and architecture offered in Havana are just amazing!

Experiences
  • The Capital Building is one of the best places to visit in Havana.
  • Everybody takes pictures of vintage cars in Havana, as they are easily spotted pretty much on every street, traffic light, or parking lot. Taxi particulares (privately owned taxi) rides are shared taxi rides. Meaning that when you get in one, other people also got in. If they are going in the same direction, you'll have company. It's a good way to meet some locals!
  • Havana is famous for its tobacco and cigars. Smell the delicious tobacco and find out a lot on how to properly save cigars.
  • Interestingly, Mojitos were invented in Cuba and are one of the island's oldest cocktails. Mojitos are made from white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane), lime juice, soda water, and mint.
  • El Malecon is 8 km of a paved road where the locals mostly go at sunset, to relax after a day at work to hear the ocean waves crashing on the shore.

Souvenir Suggestions
  • Cuban Cigars – Get the authentic Cuban cigars from government-owned cigar stores. All of the government-run stores sell at identical prices and you can be sure they are not duplicates.
  • Cuban Cigar Humidor: For the true Cuban cigar fan, you might as well go all out and buy all the accessories. Along with cigar matches, lighters and cutters, you can also pick up a humidor – an essential for storing those temperamental cigars.
  • Cuban Rum: Cuban rum is delicious. Surely, fresh mint expertly muddled in the mojitos, or the just-picked pineapples blended into the pina coladas might have a role to play in these delicious beverages, but the smooth Cuban rum definitely contributed.
  • Anything made by Cuban Artisans at Piscolabis: Piscolabis finds local artisans around Cuba and sells their handmade products in the shop. But these aren’t regular items, these are gorgeous, stylish designs that would fit right in with any trendy Manhattan shop.
  • Cuban Perfume from Habana 1791: This souvenir store creates distinctive scents based on local flowers and plants (including the infamous tobacco plant).
  • Cuban Art
  • Cuban Straw Hat
  • Cuban Kitschy Tourist Items
  • Cuban Baseball Jersey
  • Cuban Coffee
