There aren't many places on earth that are so distinct and organic to the point where they can't be compared to anyplace else. Havana's bold history can be seen in all aspects of the city from the colorful architecture to the demeanor of locals walking the cobblestone streets. There is a certain rhythm to the city that sets the tone for your entire visit.
To get a true pulse of the city, Havana is best explored on foot. Its revolutionary past can be seen around every turn as crumbling colonial buildings are woven between five large plazas that make up the architecture of old Havana. Iconic spots like the Museo de la Revolucion provide perfect opportunities for your local guide to take you into the Havana time machine as you learn about the transformation of this former presidential palace. The historical squares you will navigate give off the perfect aura of authenticity that leaves each plaza as fascinating as the last. Everywhere you turn provides a new discovery.
Walking through Havana is often compared to walking through a car museum with old-school American brand vehicles lining the streets. This isn't just a result of citizens trying to look "hip" but instead an effect of a multiple decade long ban on foreign vehicles put in place by Fidel Castro. We'll grab one of these now famous cars and take off for some of the most famous areas around Havana. At the Colon Cemetery, named after Christopher Columbus, you will see a unique 150 acre grid layout that organizes occupants in order of their social class. The higher you were regarded socially, the more prominent your spot is on main boulevards. The stories are endless among its inhabitants!
The suburb of Miramar was the hub of wealth and upscale residents prior the revolution. Large houses, luxurious hotels and mansions lined the streets throughout the 50s in this once alluring neighborhood. Hearing about its present transformation is the perfect lens into Cuba's history.
