Any visit to Cuba has to start with Havana. The capital of Cuba is a living museum with its many architectural gems and historical landmarks. The city offers restaurants, bars, music venues, and many unique cultural activities.

The best way to see Havana is on foot since most of its construction was completed well before the arrival of the automobile. Havana is by far the safest city in Latin America and a place where you can feel comfortable and carefree while strolling down its streets.
