Havana is Cuba’s capital city. All throughout the year, Havana experiences tropical climate with warm and humid weather. This means, you can visit the country anytime of the year. The city is one of the country’s top tourist hotspots. You can arrive in Havana either by plane, train, car, bus, or boat. Jose Marti International Airport offers three terminals. Be sure to practice your patience upon arrival since most customs and immigration officials work a bit slow. This means long lines at the immigration counter. Getting around the city is best done by taxi. There are different types of taxis in the city. However, it is illegal for tourists to take those which are not official government taxis. Luckily, tourists most often don’t encounter problems when taking other types of taxis except going to and from the airport.
Save money and enjoy a different experience by taking the Coco Taxis and Taxi Collectivo. These are popular modes of transportation by most Cubans but tourists will certainly have a blast trying these out plus, it will definitely save you a lot of money.
Exploring the city by foot is also a good alternative and don’t forget to get a good map. Wear your comfortable shoes and head to the Museum of the Revolution and the Capitol Building. Just at the back of the capitol building is the Partaga Cigar Factory. If you want to get the correct cigars then this is the place to go. They offer the best quality but can be more expensive than street cigars.
Experience the Havana night life by walking your way to Prado Street. The street oozes with life colored by exotic cafes, bars, and restaurants. This is a really charming Havana experience you might not want to miss. Most tourists also love to walk along El Malecón and enjoy the stunning views of the Bay.
