Surrender yourself to the youthful spirit of Havana and revel in the humming Cuban culture.
Founded by Spanish conquerors, ransacked by pirates, and reborn from its ashes after a magnificent revolution, the city of Havana is the stuff of legend. The city’s modernizing sector never seems to overshadow the historic center. Harboring a stark juxtaposition of tradition and renovation, the capital of Cuba may be overwhelming at first sight. But, once you set foot on its restless land, one thing will be certain. Havana will capture your heart with its riveting allure.
Bundled up in a small circle in the Old Town, the major squares of Havana are poised for sophisticated exploration. Once a house for military exercises, Plaza de Armas nearly borders the historic port. And, it sprawls with its picturesque 16th-century flair. Right next to it is the Cathedral Square. But, the true courageous spirit of Havana radiates most powerfully in the Revolution Square. It has seen countless gatherings and political speeches throughout history. Today, the square is a calling card for the revolution. It is also home to the world-famous Colon Cemetery.
The key ingredient of Havana’s bewitching aura is salsa. Evocatively intimate and brilliantly artistic, the exotic music reflects Havana’s brisk spirit. Whether in Plaza Vieja or the downtown bars, immerse yourself in the soulful late-night scene. Throw in some sizzling Cuban dishes, and you have yourself the enticing recipe of the Americas.
