The view from the top is all encompassing, so there's that. Once on top, you must wait for the elevator to return and the exhibits were blocked off, so that was disappointing. Cuba has much to offer but its museums are not one of them.

Jose Marti is a national here in Cuba and this monument does a fine job of honoring him. Every tourist is driven by - it is very impressive!

Our tour took us there telling us that over a million people gather there to see the political speeches of Cuba. The area isn't much bigger than a high school stadium and the grounds are uneven and you have to watch where you walk.

This is a beautiful monument in Revolution Square to honor Jose Marti, a poet and writer. You cannot go inside the monument but it is nice for photos.

When we went, we flew JetBlue. They made it so easy. Filled out forms with JetBlue online and picked up visas when we landed in Ft. Lauderdale.
