Havana Historu Day Tour Jan 24, 2017
Wednesday, November 14, 2007

One of the must things to do in my opinion, is to make a day trip to Havana which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We booked our HAVANA HISTORY DAY TOUR through our Nolitours representative at the cost of 67 CUC (Cuban Convertible Pesos) - about $70.00 CDN.

The bus picked us up at 8:00 a.m. and after picking up some more people at other resorts, we were on our way to Havana. We drove through the town of Varadero and then on to Matanzas and finally - Havana, arriving around 11:00 a.m. We did a walking tour to Cathedral Square, to see the wonderful Cathedral and to look inside. We then went down a side street to Hemingway's favourite bar - Bodeguita Del Medio" where he had his usual Mojito. Then it was time for lunch at a typical Cuban restaurant which was called "El Patio". There we had a lunch with a choice of chicken, pork or fish. I had the chicken which came with a cole slaw and rice. You also could have a drink and coffee with dessert.

After lunch we had free time until 2:00 p.m.

After getting back on to the bus, we headed for "Revolution Square" and then to the Christopher Columbus necropolis (cemetery). We were then taken to a cigar store "Romeo Y Julieta" where some people bought cigars and bottles of rum. A cigar factory tour was not part of the tour.

The last stop was near Central Park where some very beautiful Havana buildings were located such as the Capitolio which very much resembled the Washington DC Capital building.

About 4:00 p.m. we all boarded the bus for the trip back to Varadero. Overall a very nice tour and very well worth going.

Hi Lori, I enjoyed your blog on Havana. The city tour sounds great! Do you mind letting me know the agent you used to book the Havana city tour?

I really liked Havana, especially the rather dilapidated buildings in the oldest parts - very photogenic!
