Vedado, Havana

4.1
#4 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Cuba
Soak up Cuban life at Vedado, a modern, upscale neighborhood of Cuba's capital city. Packed with lounges, music venues, galleries, parks, and esplanades, this urban hub is just a five-minute ride from the city's Old Town area. Numerous shops, bars, and restaurants are scattered along the most popular city street, La Rampa, which transverses the neighborhood from east to west. Be sure to visit the massive ice cream parlor, which occupies nearly an entire city block. Sit on a bench next to a sculpture of former Beatles member John Lennon. On hot nights, many visitors and locals alike flock to the Malecon--a pathway along the sea and a popular meeting spot where you'll often find hundreds of locals drinking and chatting. Put Vedado at the forefront of your travel plans using our Havana road trip website .

  • We just stood a distance away and viewed this monument . I don't think there is anything inside until the top tower. Not sure if allowed to go there.  more »
  • It is the residential area of Havana, which is located not far from the malecon and which is a must if you're in Havana
