1. The cars
A city trapped in time, Havana is home to a sea of vintage cars straight out of the 50's. These classic cars were brought into Cuba from the States up until the importation embargo in 1960. From then on, Cubans got creative and restored cars using parts & diesel engines imported from Russia or Japan.
2. The cigars
The world's most revered stogies come from Cuba, so it's fair to say a visit to Havana isn't complete without taking a puff on a genuine Cohiba or Montecristo.
Cigar Factories in Cuba:
Romeo y Julieta/H. Upmann Factory
(Belascoaín 852 entre Peñalver y Desagüe, Centro Habana)
Calle Industria No. 520, Centro Habana
La Corona Factory
Av. 20 de Mayo y Línea de Ferrocarril, Cerro
3- The art
A visually fascinating city, Havana is flooded with innovative and original artwork, whether it's graffiti, street murals, sketches or colourful oil paintings, this vivacious country is well-equipped to impress even the toughest of critics.
4- The Music
Whether it's salsa, reggaeton, jazz, Afro-cubana, latin or rumba, music is cemented in Cuban culture and Havana is where it's at.
Calle Mercaderes is buzzing with musical energy. Latino vibes can be heard around every corner. So immerse yourself and get moving.
5- The photo-ops
Capture a kissing couple on El Malecon, snap a classic car speeding past a faded, crumbling building or photograph an exotic Cuban salsa dancer. If you're a photography novice or simply looking for enviable holiday photos, you've come to the right place.
