What to see in 3 days in Havana?


Havana is full of various plazas and squares which present visitors with a plethora of monuments, memorials, and landmarks. The Castillo de la Real Fuerza bordering the Plaza de Armas is a famous fort in Havana that was constructed to defend the city from pirates. It is the oldest stone fort in the Americas. Havana Cathedral, one of eleven Roman Catholic cathedrals on the island of Cuba, is one of the finest examples of Baroque construction in the country and hence, worth a visit. Neoclassical Capitol building, a prominent Government organization in the country until after the Cuban Revolution, is a building of immense historical significance and now houses the world's third largest indoor statue.


Famous for its white-sand seashores and azure waters, Havana houses the famous Playas del Este – a 9-kilometer strip of coastline which encompasses numerous stunning beaches. Of these, Santa María del Mar is the most popular beach which is renowned for its beach parties. If you are looking for a quieter coastline where you can soak up the sun and enjoy the waves, then the Playa Boca Ciega is a good option for you.

Playa Guanabo located on the outskirts of Havana is a part of the rustic seaside village Guanabo where you can easily spend your whole day. This beach presents you with the best of beach shacks, bars, an uncrowded beach, and a quiet vibe. Playa Bacuranao is the closest beach to the city and quite famous among snorkeling enthusiasts due to the coral reef. Playa El Salado is one of the saltiest beaches in this continent and is often visited by tourists.

Malecon, though not a beach, is a waterfront walk at the edge of the city which is perfect to soak up the Cuban vibe. Lined with various sea-facing restaurants and bars, it is ideal to catch up with locals over a tasty meal.

Museums and Art Galleries

Featuring exhibits featuring the history of rum-making, Museum of Rum is a unique place where a guided tour takes you on an interesting journey back to the history of Cuba's most famous beverage. The Hemingway Museum housed in the Finca la Vigia, which was the house of the noted writer Ernest Hemmingway, is in San Francisco de Paula Ward in Havana. Morro Castle, a fortress guarding the entrance to Havana Bay, is a popular tourist attraction in the city. Also operating as a museum, it is perched on the promontory on the opposite side of the harbor from Old Havana.
