The tour Colonial Havana is something that all foreign visitors should bring along within their plans when they decide to take their vacations in our island. The charm that the capital city transmits is undeniable, perhaps, because it seems to be stocked in time, by the mysteries and the delicious history that this city has in every one of its streets, squares, parks; or simply because of the great number of classical cars that for sure you will be able to appreciate. Beginning our journey in Varadero, it will last approximately 2 hours bordering the north coast of the country, you will be able to enjoy another charming city, Matanzas, which has a spectacular bay. In our journey you will find the Bacunayagua Bridge, which is the tallest one in Cuba, where, if you desires it we can make a stop and enjoying the popular cuban cocktail Piña Colada or simply you can observe the Yurumí Valley’s landscape. Once back in the road you will be able to see among other things the Havana Club rum factory, the Antonio Guiteras Thermoelectric and the very beginning of the beaches of Eastern Havana.

In the afternoon we will visit Old Havana and its Historic Center, which has been declared as a humanity’s patrimony by UNESCO. This is the colonial part of the city and therefore the most ancient, but it is very well conserved. It is mainly composed by four colonial squares: la Plaza de Armas, which is the first square that was built by Spain and the most important, the Plaza de la Catedral (Cathedral´s Square), which is located very near to the famous Bodeguita del Medio Bar-Restaurant, the Plaza Vieja (Old Square) and the Plaza de San Francisco of Asís (Francisco of Así’s Square).
