Old Havana is not for the feint at heart. If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton experience, don’t go. However, if you wish to see a place with radiant colors, radiant people and a radiant culture, by all means, go now while it is still pure. No cell phone coverage and horribly slow internet connections. Ahhhh. Bliss.

5. Relax On Pilar Beach (Playa Pilar)

Nice historic atmosphere giving you the feeling how pirates and Englishmen must have taken over the city centuries ago. They also host a cannon show here at night, a strange historical re-enactment, but worth it for the uniqueness of doing something that is mostly done by locals.

8. Buy Some Amazing Art In Fusterlandia
