This experience will include a motor tour of some of Havana’s most appealing districts, including the famous seaside drive, the Malecon, as well as the municipalities of Playa, Miramar, and Vedado, culminating in the culturally rich Habana Vieja (Old Havana).
OLD HAVANA, A UNESCO World Heritage Site
On our first full day in Havana, we will enjoy a city tour of various points of interest, including a walking tour of Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most unique destinations in the Caribbean. Old Havana is among the most well preserved and dynamic colonial cities in the New World. This district of the city is undergoing rapid change, which fortunately includes ambitious historic restoration combined with modern improvement of what are in many examples UNESCO World Heritage Site restored and protected buildings. Lunch in a high quality paladare, or privately owned (as opposed to Government run) restaurant. is included.
Your experience in Havana will include both structured and unstructured time.
Your first days will include an introduction, after which you may explore on your own, or with the help of professional guides that we can help arrange for small group and individual excursions. Or you can find a great chair, some fine rum and a good cigar.
