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.

    A great neighborhood interesting and what is to be seen walking among its wide boulevards and parks. You can see large villas and colonial buildings, some city heritage, or 40 years and 50 dwellings. Here you can breathe the atmosphere of a big city outside the festive bustle of town. For her condition is the best neighborhood to stay in town.
