Vedado, Havana

4.1
Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
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 into our Havana road trip website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Havana.
