Central Park, Havana

4.3
#2 of 14 in Parks in Havana
The beating heart of the city of Havana, Central Park bustles with sounds, sights, and smells. Perfect for a spot of people-watching, this small patch of greenery provides a series of stone benches, fountains, and sculptures to break up the hubbub of the busy streets, bus terminal, and buildings that surround. At the center of the park a sculpture of national hero and important figure in Latin American literature, José Martí, looks out serenely over the lively city center.

  • the place is very nice, although the name is inappropriate, because of the little park there, along with a few palm trees. The square is very beautiful is one of the most picturesque towns of Havana, its multicolored taxi make it even nicer, buses leave from here, close to many attractions of the old Havana, a must in the Cuban capital.

  • Central park in this beautiful city. A true marvel to stroll through the picturesque streets of the capital of Cuba.

  • Parque Central is not a park as you might think, but a nice place in the center of the part of the city that has been remolded. Several hotels around the square in the beautiful buildings, and at the Center is a statue to the memory of Jose Marti - one of the Cuban heroes. There are carriages, old American cars and a crowd that walks - and some small snacks at the corners of the streets. Nice, beautiful and restoring some glory to the city!

  • Beautiful place near some very nice hotels and within walking distance to El Floridata. A lot of taxi drivers and other trying to make money from tourists though. Easy place to pick up the hop on/ hop off tour bus though.
  • Beautiful park surrounded by classic architecture. The park does not have lots of grenery but its a great place for photo ops none the less. At the same time the classic 50's cars are everywhere giving the impression of a time jump to a different era.
  • Beautiful place to take pictures. There is usually a whole bunch of old colorful cars parked in front.
  • You have the chance to get in a magnificent pre-revolution classic car from the 50's-60's...
  • Central Havana is beautiful!! The old buildings makes you feel an interesting feeling of being part of the past.
