Central Park, Havana

4.2
#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. Our Havana vacation builder makes visiting Central Park and other Havana attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    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...
