It was a great feeling being in Havana and seeing our embassy standing tall. I can only hope we continue to make headway with the Cuban government.

Located along the Malecon (beyond Hotel Nacional) in the Vedado section of Havana. Easily walkable from La Rampa (Cale 23) & Hotel Nacional. Entry is not allowed. But a good photo of the U.S. Flag and the Embassy can be had from the exterior.

Unimpressive and a lot of secret service SUV in the drive. But it's there and made a good back drop fot the Cuban mile car crash in F8. Which was nice for the young one to recognize.

Cool to see outside but you cant go inside. They told us they dont allow Americans inside. You do not need to visit this place.

Drove by with our tour group. Worth looking at since the embassy was just re-opened. US flags have only been allowed in Cuba since the lifting of some restrictions in Oct 2016.

Nothing special. But the US ambassy on Cuba is a historical event :) Who knows when it will be closed once again ;)
