  • The stadium is a sports centre that becomes all of a huge party when the local baseball team plays. Recommended for all ages

  • Good to drop by as a Cuban cultural experience so far. You can touch that? is the entertainment of those who live in Cuba. When I as a sport at the box office very unsatisfactory. It's rewarding to watch local League and European football you should come up here and watch baseball, this level of service.

  • We took a taxi from Varadero. It cost us 100 CUC and the driver acted as kind of a guide, got us into the game and waited around to drive us home. We were there for a playoff game in the lower priced ...  more »

  • Amazing authentic experience. Crowd is great. Befriend a local guide to go with, if possible. It'll be easier to get tickets and concessions. If you don't speak Spanish it could get tough. Tix are 1 CUP (.05 CUC) to sit anywhere except behind home. The locals are nice, and it's very safe. A lot of food/beer vendors outside the Stadium, no alcohol inside. If you want a beer or snack midgame then ask security to give you in out privileges. If you're a washroom connoisseur then be forewarned, you'll be very dissapointed.
  • The atmosphere itself was amazing! It is really different from watching baseball in North America as it was always loud - I really appreciated it. The stadium is old and is in need of upgrades, but it doesn't take away from the experience of watching Cuba's official sport. There are very few vendors selling snacks and sandwiches inside the stadium, but the good food and souvenirs are located outside the stadium. You are best to purchase prior to entering. Also, there is no alcohol sold or consumed inside the stadium; again it's all done outside.
  • The number one team in the league, very good quality players, super fans and only 3 pesos to sit in the best seats. I agree the stadium could use some TLC.
  • Beautiful. Real baseball place.
  • Fun and loud atmosphere. Facilities are quite run down
