Discover Havana - 4 days in the heart of Habana Vieja


Discover Havana - 4 days in the heart of Habana Vieja

Day 1 : Arrival Havana International Airport

Accommodation Name: Casa Leonel, 362 O'Reilly / Meals Included: Welcome Cocktail

Airport transfer to your Casa Particulare in the atmospheric heart of Old Havana. Provide us with your flight details - date, time & flight number - and we will have our driver waiting for you in the main public arrivals area of the airport with a sign with your name on it. On arrival at your Casa Particulare, welcome drink and introductions. If it is not too late in the day 'welcome camino' to introduce you to your neighbourhood and show location of practical services such as banks for money exchange, wi-fi hotspots and nice local bars & restaurants.

Day 2 : Discover Habana

Accommodation Name: Casa Leonel, 362 O'Reilly / Meals Included: Breakfast

After breakfast at your Casa Particulare in the atmospheric heart of Habana Vieja ('Old Havana') your guide will pick you up for a full day tour/exploration of La Habana. There are a cluster of museums here including the Museum of the Revolution, but our walk will feature the beautifully preserved colonial plazas of Habana Vieja and neighbouring streets where Cubans live alongside visiting tourists, kids go to school, locals play games of chess or chequers in the street, sipping coffee from 'peso cafes' and all life seems to be happening in these atmospheric streets. Your Cuban guide will recommend some of the best bars for mojitos and live music and give you insights how Cubans live today in this complex and beguiling country.

Mid morning we pick up the pace as we are collected by a 1950's classic American car to explore some of the main features of the rest of the city. There are many options depending your preference but we recommend buzzing through the city to the Plaza de la Revolucion, a scenic drive along the Malecon and under the 'tunnel' to the Fort del Moro (best views across the city) before returning to Old Habana for drop off in Parque Central in time for lunch. There are many options for lunch and time for a siesta if you would like before continuing our exploration of Habana Vieja. Late afternoon your guide will drop you back off at your Casa by which time you will be comfortable in your new neighbourhood and buzzing with ideas for how to spend your first night in Habana!

Day 3 : Salsa lesson & night time tour La Habana

Accommodation Name: Casa Leonel, 362 O'Reilly / Meals Included: Breakfast

Salsa Lesson at 'Casa de la Son' Dance School
Salsa lesson at the famous 'Casa del Son' in Habana Vieja. One-to-one tuition means that from beginner to advanced your dance instructor will take you through your paces and build your confidence and enjoyment in this amazing dance so beloved of Cubans. We need to get the basics right before heading to a salsa club after dinner!

Habana by Night - Nighttime tour of Habana
Your guide will pick you up at your Casa early evening - or having made a dinner reservation for you - from a restaurant of your choosing. There are MANY nighttime options in Habana, as you might expect. Bar 1830 is a great live music and outdoor salsa dancing venue or if jazz is your interest we recommend La Zorra y Cuervo or Jazz Café. Fábrica de Arte is amazing for a bit of everything and there are many cabaret options such as Casa de Musica and nightclubs. Your Cuban guide has all the local knowledge and will make you comfortable wherever you decide to go! [taxi fares and entrance fees not included but your guide will advise beforehand and make sure these are appropriate]. Alternatively, take the short ferry ride across the harbour to Fort del Moro as a nightly ceremony takes place. The famous 21:00 'cannon shot' that rings across the city as the harbour is 'closed' for the night lets Habaneros know that the city safe from marauding pirates! Return to Habana Vieja at your leisure.
