Daily Escape: Havana Cuba


Looking for a historic Caribbean destination to visit? Look no further than Havana Cuba. Known for its colonial-inspired architecture, compelling history, authentic eateries and bustling atmosphere, Havana is an intoxicating, enchanting and captivating mixture of opulence and decay, socialism and capitalism. It is fair to say that this Spanish Caribbean city is an open-air museum and one of the world’s greatest iconic cities that stood still in time.

The city is full of cultural attractions, offers plenty of things to do and the rich culture is laid bare, thereby making it one of the best weekend getaways the Caribbean has to offer. Havana has one of the most outstanding examples of Spanish colonial architecture in the Caribbean. On the list of places to visit are the Neo-Gothic churches; Art Deco theaters, 18th century convents and Habana Vieja (Old Havana) the capital’s tourist center, which is being transformed into a living museum of colonial architecture. An array of late-night cabaret shows, theaters, nightclubs and cinemas can be found in Vedado. You can also watch as the waves of the Caribbean Sea crash over the sidewalk in Malecón.

The opportunities to lose yourself in the unique city offerings are limitless. Be sure to check out the vintage model Cadillacs, Buicks, Chevrolets and other classic cars that line the streets, which offers a glimpse into the past. The 16th century Spanish fort El Morro is also close by. If you are looking for something to remember your trip, take home a bottle of the famous Havana Club rum, a case of cigar or a few pieces of attractive handmade crafts.

In addition, it’s best to visit Havana Cuba in the late spring, before the rainy season.
