While we were walking around the city we stopped here for a quick drink or two!!! The Mojito’s were the best that we had while on the island of Cuba. Friendly staff, oh and did I mention how nice the Mojitos were😘👍

Be sure not to miss a tour of Gran Teatro when you visit Havana. The building is stunning. You can only explore by guided tour, which goes into the history of the theater and you realize that Cuban artists are so wonderfully talented and accomplished.

This is a beautiful building and you should do a building tour at least or try to get tickets to a performance. We were lucky to be in Havana to see an Acosta Dance performance, it was fantastic!

The building is a beautiful architecture palace. Inside is the great theater where that’s home of the Cuban ballet. If you are planning to attend an event arrive early as the tickets are filled manually and it can become confusing.

Cuba is different- I suggest when you get there; either use your guide or find a guide to help you out!
