    One of the best experiences in Varadero Beach was snorkeling in its vibrant waters. The marine life is simply stunning, with colorful fish and coral reefs that seem to come alive before your eyes. Swimming alongside these majestic creatures was a surreal experience I'll never forget. Renting a car in Cuba further deepened my connection to the island's beauty.

    Charming old city streets, forts, Lots of bars and restaurants many with live music, galleries with creative original art at bargain prices. Very safe to get around during day and felt safe at night especially if street wasn't deserted. Can easily navigate by foot or inexpensive pedicab. Area contains dozens of private pensiones. Many look shabby on the outside but are quite secure, comfy with A/C inside. Check carefully for museum schedules. Some are closed Sunday. Others are closes Monday.

    Our family of five had an amazing overnight/2 day trip with a private guide to the beautiful Viñales valley. I found our guide, José Javier Morales, through good reviews on trip advisor and he exceeded our expectations! He suggested an itinerary and worked with us to shape it to what suited us as the kids were keen to do horse riding and zip lining. We also did a boat tour through the Indian Caves, saw an impressive mural and went to a tobacco farm. The activities were all well organised, fun and interesting. We also learnt such a lot about how Cuban society functions from Javi and really enjoyed our time with him and the driver Carlos who drove us around in a classic car. They were understanding about the needs of younger kids. Absolutely top rated. Javi is very responsive on WhatsApp: +53 5 2658393 and speaks fluent English.

    Thankfully, our Airbnb apartment was only two blocks away from this charming square.

    We were able to enjoy it lively atmosphere, street dancing, live music, shops, and delicious restaurants.

    It is not too touristy as it is also enjoys by locals and tourists.

    We ate at the restaurants on the Square and nearby four times .

    Our local guide, Jay showed us exactly where Vin's car went over the wall. In fact, he was there during the filming because the studio paid locals with vintage cars to be in the scene. The Malecon was not that busy while we were there but it's an iconic view of Havana. After walking along it for a while, we hopped into a vintage car and Jay took us on a fun, informative Walking Tour of Old Havana as well as a special Cigar Tour near the fortress. He was the perfect English-speaking guide for a family with teenage boys. Highly recommend reaching out to Jay through WhatsApp +53 5 2647935. He plans custom tours in Havana and for all activities anywhere in Cuba you want to go - he will save you a lot of time and money.

    Can't come to Havana and see the cathedral. the square is lovely and largely restored and the cathedral entrance is free. Avoid a lot of the touts trying to get you to their restaurants, as the better ones are off the square. The plaza is a straight line walk from Prado.

    One of the most pristine beaches I have ever seen. Turquoise water and powder white sand. Clothing optional section. Loungers and sun shades available for a small fee.

    I visited the FAC with a large group during a visit with my university. The FAC is an interesting, open-concept mixture of a museum, bar, club, shop, food court. While I was there, I saw a fashion show and a dance class! It was really cool! I would recommend checking it out for a night - especially if you are with your friends. Everyone can find something to do here.

    It is multi-level, so keep that in mind if you are bringing guests who have trouble going up stairs. It is also a little pricier than other places in Havana. If you are a tourist, come prepared with Cuban pesos (not dollars or euros).

    This was a highlight for me while in Cuba. The art is just amazing and the way it has spread through the neighborhood is just memorizing. It feels more like an artistic town or haven than a neighborhood.

    We were fortunate enough that our tour guide arranged lunch for us while visiting. This was the best home cooked food we had on our entire trip. It is not a restaurant so if you are interested have your tour company contact them in advance (small groups only). Honestly the lunch at the Fuster House aline is worth a trip to Cuba

    I enjoyed this fort during the day. The fortress that protects Havana for centuries. The view is super ! Wonderful history and architecture.
    Highly recommend!

    This is the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. It’s like being in a dream. Gorgeous white sand beaches you can walk for hours. I was relaxing on my floatie when a stingray swam beneath me. Snorkelled for 2 minutes before finding a starfish.

    The restaurant boasts great off the resort meals for cheap. We ate 3 meals + alcoholic drinks for $30 CAN.

    If you want to feel like you went to heaven, spend a day on this beach.
