Havana, Cuba: Where Yesterday Lives Today

Step into a time warp where classic cars, stately squares, and crumbling estates hint at a history begging to be discovered. Havana may be a look into the past, but its iconic music, distinctive culture, and nostalgic allure never get old.

THINGS TO DO:

Colorful Cuba Street with Old CarsOLD SCHOOL CRUISING

There are plenty of driver services in Havana offering scenic rides along the waterfront in a classic American car. Or hop in one of the many bicitaxis— rickshaw-style bikes that are both affordable and a great way to sightsee.

STEP INTO FUSTERLANDIA

Cruise to Havana and wander along spiraling walkways past fountains and sculptures covered in vibrant mosaic tiles in Jaimanitas, a district just west of central Havana. Artist Jose Fuster has transformed this suburban neighborhood into a Gaudí-esque wonderland of realism, modernism, and a healthy dose of Cuban national pride.

TURN BACK TIME

Stroll through the plazas of Habana Vieja, where you can visit cigar factories, sip “agua de coco” and browse colorful stands selling antiques and memorabilia— all while soaking up the intriguing sights and sounds of this six-hundred-year-old slice of Havana.

COZUMEL: MEXICAN HEART AND CARIBBEAN SOUL

Cozumel blends Mexican culture with Caribbean vibes. You can explore its Maya roots in Tulum, or discover a secret world of sea life as you snorkel beneath the waves in Chankanaab. And there’s no better way to close out a day of adventure than with an ice cold michelada and a beachside massage at Playa Mia.

THINGS TO DO

San Gervasio, the largest ancient Maya site on Cozumel

TEMPLE TREKKING

Get up close and personal with Maya history at San Gervasio, the largest ancient Maya site on Cozumel, which dates back to as early as A.D. 300.

Swim with dolphins at Chankanaab National Park, Cozumel

DIVE INTO ADVENTURE

At Chankanaab National Park, you’ll find everything from snorkeling and scuba to swimming with dolphins.

Aerial View of Punta Sur National Ecological Park, and its adjacent beach.

NATURAL THRILLS

Reconnect with nature while wandering the endless mangroves, beaches and reefs in Punta Sur National Park during your Cozumel cruise.

Michelada, Mexican drink made with beer and freshly squeezed lime juice over ice in a salt-rimmed glass.

LOCAL CUISINE

Cozumel’s cuisine is dominated by Mexican, American and international cuisine. Fresh seafood is always a good choice, and so is the cochinita pibil— a slow-roasted, highly seasoned pork dish. Cool off with a michelada, made with beer and freshly squeezed lime juice over ice in a salt-rimmed glass. Or keep it traditional with Mexico’s signature spirit, tequila.

SHOPPING

For great deals and guaranteed stores, walk along the waterfront on Avenue Rafael E. Melgar, a mile-long strip in San Miguel. And be sure to check out the Chile Tequila Factory for a sampling of Mexico’s favorite spirit.
