This was the second time we visited Old Havana but we saw different things this time around. They are very busy repairing the old squares and you can tell the Cubans take immense pride in their heritage. An absolute must for every visitor!!

Old Havana is amazing to see, if a little touristy. The old streets and buildings are fab. There are a lot of good eateries around old Havana if you want to sample some authentic food.

I thought I had a pretty good idea about the history of Cuba. Nope!! Havana, the old Havana is amazing. I learned so much about the Cuban people and all that they have gone through. Their strength and continued love of life is amazing. As much as I wish they had all inclusive, I appreciate why they don't.

The most amazing architecture, whether in ruins or renovated. Loads to do and see, so much history, music, dancing and the old american cars, most look spanking brand new. Amazing and a truly wonderful experience.

If you wish to experience Cuba this is the place. It's the city center of Havana. It's full of houses that now is functioning as a souvenir shops. Classic American cars all all around.

It is the second time that I go to the old town of la Havana and I really enjoyed. People are nice and especially during the evening you can have a great experience there. You will feel safe there and in all cuba.

This one area you should definitely visit. This area shows you more about how Cubans live, you find a lot of locals, people are very nice, it is also a good place for pictures, all the architecture that is very old has its own beauty.
