Havana, on the northwestern coast of the island, is the capital of Cuba and the largest city in the Caribbean. With a population of just over two million, the city was founded in 1519 and is full of Spanish history and culture everywhere you look. The city was granted the title of city by King Philip II in 1592, and it has flourished ever since. The Spanish American war in 1898 caused forts and walls to be built to protect the city, but that adds to its charm today.
Today's Havana is divided into three cities, the newer suburban districts, Vedado, and Old Havana. The new suburban districts are full of new buildings, including malls, offices, and nightclubs. Vedado is the central business district bordered by the Almendares River and the waterfront seawall of Melecon. Old Havana is in the center of the city and is protected by the original walls built in the late 1800s.
With a tropical climate, Havana enjoys an average temperature of 77 degrees all year long. It's perfect for a day at the beach or taking a walk in the park. Dozens of beaches dot the coastline, and parks are abundant around the city too. Of course, there are plenty of other things to do, like shopping, eating, and learning about the culture of this iconic city.
Since we travel often, we understand how annoying it can be to drag your luggage around with you. Drop your things off with one of our Bounce partners to head out and enjoy the beach or whatever else you want to do in Havana. Locals can take advantage of our service too. Just download our Bounce app and find the closest location.

There are more than 50 museums, monuments, and galleries in Havana. Be ready to soak up some culture along with some sun. From the unique and colorful Fusterlandia to the bizarre Museum of Chocolate and the Perfume Museum, there is something for everyone in Havana.
National Museum of Fine Arts: Do you want to see a giant cockroach? Head over to the National Museum of Fine Arts on Carr. Central de Cuba. The largest collection of fine art in Cuba is contained in two massive buildings here. See the Cuban Arts in one and International Art in the other. They boast over 940 pieces in the Cuban building, including engravings, drawings, sculptures, and paintings. The Universal building has collections of European, French, and Italian works, to name a few. And the giant cockroach.
La Cabana: Also known as Fort of Saint Charles, this 18th-century fortress along the canal is the third-largest in the Americas. Located atop the 200-foot hill with the Morro Castle, the fortress did not do well as far as defense goes but today it is a fascinating tourist attraction. In 1762, the British took the hill where they were able to defeat the city. Get some selfies, eat some food, and enjoy some drinks and Cuban cigars.
Napoleon Museum: Learn more about this iconic French emperor in this striking Renaissance-style building in Havana near the University of Havana. The home belonged to Orestes Ferrara, and there are more than 8,000 items displayed inside such as Napoleon’s death mask, telescope, coins, weapons, and furniture. You can also learn about the last days of his life and why he was always painted with his hand in his vest.
Much of the city of Havana is still untouched by technology. You can find many small shops, markets, and street vendors, as well as shopping centers and malls. Whether you want to browse for souvenirs for the folks back home or something special for yourself, you’ll find it here.
Markets: One of the best ways to shop in Havana is by walking through the open markets. The Almacenes de San Jose Artisans Market is a huge souvenir market at San Ignacio and Avenida del Puerto. Also, in Vedado, you can find a market on 23rd and M Streets. Old Havana is another popular spot to purchase unique items made and sold by locals.
Malls: The Galerias Paseo Shopping Center on Paseo Avenue is for the more privileged Cuban locals or tourists who want to find the best that Havana has to offer. From exquisite jewelry and watches to a large winery and a jazz café, there is a lot to take in. On Salvador Avenue, the Plaza Carlos III has four levels of shopping, dining, and entertainment. It is nicely decorated, colorful, and the prices are not as bad as the rest of the malls.
Specialty Shops: If you are looking for something in particular, many shops cater to specific needs. Cuban cigars are famous, so you will find plenty of cigar shops. Look for the La Casa del Habano Quinta on the corner of 5th and 16th Streets. They sell the best cigars and have a smoking lounge with a restaurant. Rum shops are plentiful too. Ron Legendario on Santa Catalina is one of the most popular, and it even has cigars.
Be sure to try some of the local cuisine while you are in Havana. Although many people think all Cuban dishes are spicy, this is not true. Their food is seasoned well but not spicy. They are famous for their coffee, of course, but they are also well-known for their plantains, Cuban egg sandwiches, and churros.
Local Food: Mojito-Mojito has the top reviews from locals in Havana. Located on Muralla, this cozy café has a unique way of serving the mixed grill in a terra cotta pig, lamb stew with all the trimmings, and of course, mojitos. And the live music makes it even more charming. Another five-star café, Buenaventura on 43rd Street is casual and comfortable with interesting dishes like octopus and Quibu chicken. They even have a vegan menu. Have some seafood stew or Gille’s Rabbit at 5 Sentidos on San Juan de Dios. The quiet and serene ambiance is a plus for those needing a break.
Burgers and More: If you need a burger and fries but don’t want McDonald’s, try Super Burger on 26th Street. They also have burritos, pasta, and pizza. Qbanas on 37th Street is a favorite burger spot for the locals. If you are dying for some sushi, head over to 26th Avenue, where Fuumiyaki will serve you the best in town. They offer vegan menus here too. And Distrito 25 on 25th Street is the best place to get a taco with whatever you want inside it.
Desserts: One of the best places in town to get some ice cream is at Helad’oro on Aguiar Street. Be sure to try the gelato waffle bowl. For baked goods, try Burner Brothers on 719th Street and Paseo. They have the best donuts, brownies, and cakes around. If you want handmade Italian ice cream, they have a variety of flavors at Amore Helado Italiano on 15th Street. They also serve delicious breakfast food.
