    -------------------------------
    Tips:
    - Take out as much cash you think you will need for the entire trip! On a higher end we would spend about 100 CUC per day on drinks, taxis, tours, food etc. It definitely adds up and goes quickly so be sure to budget!
    - We filled out/purchased our Visas and certification at the airport. We flew with Delta so make sure you confirm that you can do that the day of with your airline.
    - Download this app! Trust me it will save you in so many ways. The map on here is amazing and its all "offline" (Just type in "Cuba" in the app store on your phone and its the green one, looks like this) : play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.triposo.droidguide.cuba
    WHERE WE STAYED: www.airbnb.com/rooms/15752806
    *Amazing place. Super nice couple that rents it. They gave us a phone that works with their numbers in case and everything is super secure. Great location too!
    Places we went to:
    - Plaza De La Cathedral: This is perfect for a photo-op plus it has an inlet street with the Cafe I mentioned and a bunch of resturants
    - Plaza Vieja: Super pretty, definitely go here for lunch. Great views and a ton of restaurant options with live music.
    - Parque Central / Paseo Del Prado : This is definitely a must see! You will find the Capitol building, great hotels with rooftop views and a plethora of classic cars to look at or pick one to ride in.
    - Museum of Revolution : This is a great way to cool off and kill some time. It was once home to Presidents and is beyond beautiful as it was designed by Tiffany & Co.
    - Hotel National- This is a super fancy hotel with amazing views! We stopped to check it out as a lot of our famous favorites have stayed there. It's definitely a taxi distance away from Old Habana though.
    Bars:
    Hotel Inglaterra- This is an amazing rooftop bar with an incredible view! I had my share of sangria's here :)
    Floridita- One of Hemingway's must stop for a Daiquiri. I really loved these but keep in mind they are 6 CUC a piece compared to 3-4 CUC most other places.
    La Bodeguita De Medio- Hemingway Bar #2. This was his go-to spot for Mojitos! Beware this is a tourist trap and you might be drinking your mojito on the street depending on the time of the day.
    Cafe:
    Cafe De O'Reilly- This was our go-to for breakfast and morning coffee. Try the Cafe Bombon, it was my favorite.
    Dinner:
    La Guarida- We found this to be our favorite spot. The restaurant requires reservations, but if you forget like us, you can go up to the roof for amazing sunset views and the best food we had the whole trip!
    Tips:
    - The classic cars you see are Taxi's and cost more than the regular cars. You can however rent one for around 20 CUC for an hour city tour. Definitely worth it. Plus they make for great photos ;)
    - If you are staying in Old Habana, the entire area of Habana Vieja and everything I mentioned is super walkable.

    I love this video! This really make me excited for my Cuba cruise I am going on next month and helped me with some outfit ideas!
    Question - What activity did you do to get your visa to travel in Cuba? I was told that I will need to take an 8 hour educational tour to be able to be granted an educational visa to leave the cruise ship in Cuba. I am trying to get around that if possible or do something that takes less time, as we only have so much time to visit in Cuba since it is a cruise. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!!

      hayleylowe1 Wow really? My bf & I are planning for a Cuba cruise as well! That would suck not being able to leave the ship like that. I didn’t know this! For the Bahamas we just needed our birth certificate or passport.

    I'm a Chinese guy that got to visit one of our former 'comrades.' Cuba is an absolutely horrible place. When I went there in Christmas of 2015, I stayed at one of the best hotels in Varadero and in the country. I couldn't sleep at night because as soon as I tried to fall sleep I would be swarmed by mosquitoes, ticks, and bedbugs. I got red bumps all over my lower body, and little cluster-like bites that I'm sure were from bedbugs and ticks. The hotel sold bug repellent but it was quite overpriced, so I'm pretty sure they deliberately chose not to deal with the bugs.
    Havana was a polluted shit hole. I thought the air pollution in Beijing / Shanghai was bad enough, but Havana, at least to me, took it to a new level. The city being so small and densely packed certainly didn't help make the pollution a bit more spread out. Their vehicles are really old, running on engines that should have long been replaced / discarded. A typical Cuban meal is really..... bland. A few pieces of pork and chicken and some potato or sweet potato with rice. When I was in Havana, I got a couple of stares from the locals that I found quite strange. They might simply been expressing their friendliness or curiosity, but as an introvert from an ethnically Asian background, Latin America as a whole is a bit too outgoing for me. There were salsa classes at the hotel, and the Western tourists from the US / UK / Canada had fun, but I never thought about joining myself.
    The island's scenery was quite dull as well. I went snorkeling but couldn't stay in the water for more than 5 minutes because sea water wasn't too kind to the four canker sores in my mouth. When they advertise snorkeling, all of the images they show you are photoshopped . I did see two things that were slightly more interesting: 1. Schoolkids in Cuba wear red neckties just like schoolkids in China back in the old days 2. The central square in Havana with that tall monument, where Castro made a 7-hour speech back in the 1950s
    Overall I had quite a shitty time. After Havana, I decided that I didn't want to do anything else, so I spent the remaining 4 days at the hotel. There simply was no usable internet, so I really felt like I was isolated from my friends.

    I like how you conveniently left out the poor people and instead chose to pose in front of landmarks.
    See you are one of those American fuckheads who romanticizes everything and loves to pose a picture in front of everything because you are a weak, vain human being.
    Fuck you and your RUclip Channel you fuckin poser, "Tess".

    Aha I just got back from Cuba, and it was amazing 💙 I went for a week & stayed at a resort. The food was really bland in the hotel so I suggest bringing spices & Nutella. Also reserve restaurants quick at hotels because they get booked fast.. also sometimes when you wanna buy something you need your passport so keep that with you &I always have your important stuff in the safe. Make sure do have Cuban money and you can only exchange bills of coins.
