Until 1959 and Fidel Castro’s ascent to power, Cuba was America’s tropical playground: a place of restaurants, casinos, nightclubs. Even today it’s a popular destination: four million tourists visited Cuba in 2016, with more due in 2017. And 37% of Americans are considering a holiday there – a figure that’s highest among millenials.
In this new guide from Herb Lester Associates we explore much of what remains from the freewheeling 1950s, while keeping an eye on new enterprises that have opened as the government stance on private business has softened.
The 32 selections encompass legendary bars and clubs – such as Sloppy Joe’s, La Bodeguita – historic buildings and neighbourhoods, along with many of the best new restaurants. Consider it your guide to Havana: Right Now!
