Vedado, Havana

(4.1/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Havana holiday planner to visit Vedado on your trip to Havana, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • It is a very good site for staying as difference of old Havana is more modern and has the Malecón in its entirety. Find theatres, shops, great number of hotels and departments for rent, restaurants, tours, etc.

  • The second downtown Havana. From the old town on foot in an hour and a half, or by taxi or bus. A lot of the likes of skyscrapers. There are clubs, restaurants, cafes

  • Heart of Havana, a name whose origins date back to the existing prohibitions in the 16th century to open roads in the area, covered with forests that were an obstacle to any hostile towards access to the villa of San Cristóbal from Havana.
