If you don’t come to Havana when you visit Cuba, you’re doing this country an injustice.

Havana is one of the most wonderful cities we’ve ever visited. And by that, I don’t mean ‘oh isn’t this wonderful, darling’. Havana really is full of wonder and one of the best things to do in Cuba.

From the crumbling buildings to its curious narrow streets brimming with life and ingenuity, Havana is Cuba’s capital for a reason. Here you get the perfect screenshot of a culture the rest of the world has pretty much ignored for so many years.

Things to see in Havana, Cuba:

  • El Capitolio – National Capitol Building
  • Rooftop bar of Hotel Ambos Mundos
  • The Malecón – esplanade and sea wall
  • Almacenes San Jose market
  • The Cathedral Havana (plus square of the houses of the 4 richest families in Cuba)
  • Plus if you have time, visit the castle – Castillo el Morro – the other side of the harbour. It’s full of history and a real icon of the city.
