    An evening stroll across Santiago's main square ist the perfect start to an evening of dine and dance. Be sure to get your Mojito on the roof of Casa Granda!  more »

    A beautiful small square or park with its Cathedral and a balcony from which was Fidel Castro. Here you can breathe history. Sit the street musicians. The Cubans in the street dancing or do the normally thick cigars cohiba brand.

    This small, busy square can be regarded as the real heart of the city. It is where everyone (foreigners and locals) goes to chill out, listen to the municipal orchestra, hang out with both friends and total strangers, enjoy random musical acts from street musicians, art exhibitions, have a "maní tostado": local term for toast peanuts and finally, to take the pulse of the city by soaking up its vibrant Caribbean atmosphere.
