Havana, Cuba, isn't exactly the place our parents warned us about anymore. The people are extremely friendly and always willing to help. Havana is a magical place where you can easily find yourself getting lost in the music and a good few mojitos! If you ever get the chance to go, jump on it! I won my trip to Cuba from the Havana Club Gap Year competition and I'm so grateful.

Havana is a crumbling colonial paradise, where the cobblestone streets are lined with classic american cars and palm trees, and the air is an unchanging warm breezy embrace.
It is fascinating to observe the nuances of everyday life in revolutionary society, where the fundamental social contract is law and basic human rights are upheld as national policy. There is no advertising.

A unique and impressive city. At once you can feel the opulance of the past wealth in the grand buldings, while also sensing the strife of people now as they struggle to keep cars and homes from deteriorating and earn a living in the underground economy. The Malecon is a defining characteristic of lifestyle here. I fully recommend staying in casa particulares (private houses as opposed to hotel/hostels) which allow you to give money directly to people and also gain insight into there perspectives and daily lives. There is also great food in this town, but it seems like tourists are still having a hard time finding it.

Havana cidade da musica, dos charutos e do rum. Cidade de gente simpática, de cultura e conhecimento. Se pudesse todos os anos iria a Havana, uma cidade que me deixou encantado, pelos seus famosos carros, pela sua musica que toca em cada canto, cada esquina...pela sua mística. Havana tem edifícios coloniais lindos. Havana é uma cidade de gente feliz. Havana é um dos locais do mundo onde todos deveriam visitar.
