  • Sehr interresante, anstrengende, fotogene, zerfallende Stadt. Nette Leute, mit einem Peso bist Du ein "grande Amigo". Für fortgeschrittene Touristen. Spanisch ist eigentlich ein MUSS.

  • En Cuba La Habana es conocida con el sobrenombre de "la capital de todos los cubanos" no solo porque en sus calles pueden hallarse personas de absolutamente todos los rincones de la isla sino también porque es un crisol de las tradiciones ancestrales, la historia y la actualidad cotidiana del país. Estas peculiaridades la convierten en el destino perfecto para quien desee conocer a fondo la cultura popular. Como toda capital, reúne las más importantes obras monumentales de la isla, tiene un ritmo de vida frenético y por las noches asegura diversión para todos los gustos ya sea en la tranquilidad de un piano bar, en las movidas discotecas o en los espectáculos al aire libre, entre los cuales sin lugar a dudas descolla el Cabaret Tropicana. La Habana también muestra otra faceta menos conocida, su ambiente natural, que puede disfrutarse en el Jardín Botánico, donde destaca el Parque Japonés o en las diferentes zonas naturales que están en las cercanías. De la misma forma, las Playas del Este, en temporada baja, son ideales para quien busca el relax. de la misma forma, Varadero siempre queda a pocas horas.
