Havana

Rome of the Caribbean

Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time. Tour Havana at any time of day, and you'll see classic cars rambling along wide avenues flanked by some of the most photogenic colonial buildings in the Americas. In the World Heritage-listed town center, massive palaces with Baroque facades appear frozen in time, while the city's expanding suburbs seem on the verge of finally entering the 21st century. Few world cities feature such a curious mixture of elegance and decay, and such a blend of European, African, and American cultural influences. Like the rest of Cuba, this city is quickly changing, so if you want to soak up its unique sights and sounds, you better plan your Havana holiday quickly. Havana is in Ciudad de la Habana Province.

Where to stay in Havana

Old Havana remains the most popular neighborhood to stay in Cuba's capital. Here you'll find all manner of accommodations, from budget guesthouses and bed and breakfasts to luxury hotels. Some of the back streets in the old town can be quite rough, so visitors with children might want to steer clear of the area. Providing a quieter, more residential alternative, the western suburb of El Vedado exudes a relaxed atmosphere and serves as the perfect spot for a family vacation. If you're after better beach access, look farther west to the upper-class district of Miramar.
