Old Havana is like something out of a 50's movie set. Beautiful buildings and amazing cars and wonderfully basic. friendly people who want to show you their amazing home. You wont find a fast food chain for love nor money and its a welcome relief!!

An island with a heartbreaking history. Everything here is so different to anywhere else on that planet. Sometimes it feels like the DDR in warm and at the seaside, means an ocean. Not the Baltic Sea indeed.

Daytime: During the day the shops are open and there are museums to walk into. Nighttime: Safe to walk around at night. We were 4 ladies walking around after dinner and it was delightful. I would say even romantic. Well lit and many people were hanging out. The inner streets are closed for vehicle traffic, wear comfortable shoes for lots... More

Our WestJet rep arranged a car, driver & guide to take us into Havana. We split the cost between 4 of us & it was the best deal ever! Ivi's beautiful 1955 Chevy Belair was a jewel. Abel, our guide, was fantastic. So knowledgeable and friendly. They took us to see all the sights in both old & new Havana... More

Walking the streets of Old Havana is a memorizing stroll. Take pictures, people watch, and enjoy every minute.

Old Havana is one of the most touristic place in Havana. Very colorful, exciting, crowded and cultural spot BUT really dirty according to me...

This city is a city like no other i have been too. Its a city in the 1960, but still in fantastic condition. Its just takes your breath away. You just stand back and look at all the Old cars, and take every thing in, its like being on a film set. I was lost for words really.
