Outside of the old town, there is plenty to see for Havana holiday makers. Around Havana's Parque Central area (set next to Old Havana) are further beautiful examples of architecture, including the Capitiolio building (a replica of the Capital building in Washington DC) and the the beautiful Gran Teatro, still used for ballet and opera performances. The Partagas cigar factory is set behind the Capitolio building and makes an interesting visit for cigar smokers, giving an insight into how this Cuban tradition has been maintained. If you are staying at either the Saratoga or Nh Parque Central, then you have the added luxury of being able to take in a view of the Parque Central area from the rooftop pool area of your Havana hotel.
Other places of interest near to Old Havana are the Museum of the Revolution and the National Museum of Fine Arts, again both a short walk away from the old town, and close to Havana's Hotel Sevilla. A lengthier tour will also take in the more modern Havana, and include a visit to Revolution Square and the Miramar district of Havana.
The Malecon road winds along the coast of Havana and makes a beautiful drive. In the evening the Malecon makes a busy meeting place for local people, and makes for a wonderful romantic Havana holiday hot spot as you view the sun setting over the dilapidated buildings along the shore, with waves crashing gently over the seawall.
To make the most of your holiday to Havana we recommend that you take a guided tour, which can be booked with our representatives.
If you are staying in a Havana hotel but are still keen to take some time out on Cuba's beaches then the Eastern shores of the island are less than 30 minutes away from the city. These beaches feature fabulous white sands and crystal clear waters for swimming together with a small range of restaurants and bars. These beaches are particularly popular with local people so can tend to be busy at weekends, but do have the added bonus of having a true Cuban feel.
There is a vast choice of evening entertainment for Havana's holiday makers with a range of restaurant options, salsa bars, and cabaret shows. Many of Havana's hotels have their own restaurants, some specialising in a particular type of food. The Hotel Valencia Havana is famous for it's paella, while the tapas at the Hotel El Comendador is popular with guests. Larger 5* hotels in Havana feature international cuisine with a variety of menu options.
