Cuba has undergone dramatic changes after it restoration, It felt like I travelled back to 1953… and it’s dreamy. Enjoy Viñales Valley and look for amazing treasure in the flea market in Old Havana.
The day of my Havana journey continues with an intimate lunch at Restaurante Paladar Café Laurent, vintage car experience in Miramar, visit of the Revolution Square and Hotel Nacional, and ended at the Malecón!
The mission for the morning is to visit the four plazas in the Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that contains the core of the original city. Apart from the heritage spots within the area, Havana is also filled with stories and antidotes about the legendary American novelist Ernest Hemingway…
1953: the year when the Cuban Revolution took place and since then the time in Havana stood still, owing to the American embargo. This policy had Cuba perfectly preserved as a giant, spectacular open-air museum of 1950s communism without the American influence – the country has no chain stores, no fast food, no Coca Cola, no Starbucks, and even no outdoor advertising… the country, to a lot of travelers, is unique and fascinating.
