  • Out of the hustle-and-bustle of Old Havana, Hemingway's house is a peaceful oasis on a hill overlooking the city. It is a 20-30 minute drive from Old Town, but certainly worthwhile. Visitors can't ent...  more »

  • Beautifully maintained piece of history. You cannot go inside, but you are able to see most of the restored areas from the windows. Make sure you go up the tower if you're able.
  • Really enjoyed seeing the villa Hemingway had just outside La Habana. Bring enough time to soak in the atmosphere! Even though you can only see through the windows (or exactly because of that?), you get a good sense of what it might have been like for Hemingway and his visitors.
  • This is a must visit for Hemingway fans. The house is pretty much as he left it and there is plenty to see even though access into the house is not permitted. The guided tour is worth taking.
  • Well preserved home where Hemingway lived while in Cuba. They did a nice job curating the home. Well appointed grounds with great views.
  • Cubans have done a good job of keeping this place in good standing. A must see when visiting Cuba.
