Get ready to take a trip back to the middle of the 20th century. Travel back in time as you wander through Old Havana, dine on classic dishes, and explore everything this charming city has to offer. Start with a vintage car tour. One common sight in Havana is classic cars—some more well maintained than others, but each of them a work of midcentury art. See the city sights while cruising in a classic ride. Choose from a two- or three-hour tour and catch a glimpse of everything from the capitol building to the Plaza de la Revolución. Lots of people think of cigars when they think about Cuba. Learn more about the intricate process that goes into making Cuba’s famous cigars—and bring home a few for yourself, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Sightseeing doesn’t have to take place from the back seat of a car—there’s more to see than meets the eye from the road. Choose a sunny afternoon during which to stroll the Paseo del Prado. Eight lion statues flank the route, from which you can see Fraternity Park, the Great Theater of Havana, and the ruins of the former Jail Building. Built in 1772, this old-world treat is not to be missed. Lovers of native flora should plan a visit to the National Botanical Garden, which contains plants native to the tropics, plant nurseries, exhibition pavilions, working laboratories, and even an eco-friendly restaurant—which makes it easy to spend a whole afternoon there, including lunch.
