I have read some Hemingway but am not a devotee. IMO a special trip to the house is justified for those really interested in his life. The home and property are very well preserved and part of that preservation is not letting you into it....More

I went by a taxi, though it was a great deal to negotiate. It is in a very beautiful green area. I was very sorry, because only Hemingway's apartment could be seen from outside, not allowed. So I'm a little disappointed.

If you have time take a trip to see the Ernest Hemingway museum to get a look at what his home looked like. He lived in Cuba for 20 years. You cannot walk through the actual house but you can peek inside and take pictures.

We toured the grounds. You cannot enter the house but you can peer in through open windows. The tour is self-guided with very little interactive media to explain the different rooms. Make sure you climb the tower in the back yard. The view is stunning....More
