Havana is a great city, with unique charms. But beyond the cliches that most people attribute to this city and the country; there is much misery, poverty and struggle. The embargo on the country has had its impact and the policies of the government of...More

We were not expecting the Old City to be well equipped with bars, eateries, friendly people and well behaved tourists.. After 5 days we thought... Havana- Thumbs UP!

We toured Old Havana as part of a Nexus Havana Rhythm (1/2 day) tour. Old Havana would be difficult to navigate without a guide or an excellent map. The streets are narrow, and guide you though various squares. We travelled by Hemingway’s favorite bar (La...More

The classic car tours are typically $40 for 1 hour and 480 for 2 hours. They are excellent although my lack of Spanish meant that I missed some of the commentary by the driver. He took us to places I would never have got to... More
