Havana

Havana

This is the Cuban city with the greatest Caribbean flavor, and it hosts many popular festivities. It is also distinguished by having been the scene of the most important events in Cuba’s history and by being the place where the Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre (Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre), Cuba’s patron saint, is venerated with the most fervour. The adjacent mountains and sea are ideal for ecotourism and adventures, water sports, cruise ship tourism and health tourism. When visiting Santiago de Cuba, be sure to stroll through its streets, to see the friendship and contagious enthusiasm of the people who live here. Either of its two main arteries, Enramada and Aguilera Streets, will take you from the Plaza de Marte (parade ground) to Céspedes Park, the heart of the city. Magical Santiago de Cuba was the birthplace of the bolero, the conga and the son. Several cultures blend in this city to give it a distinctive culture of its own. Racial mixing-Spanish, black and French-is more clearly seen here than in the rest of the country. The city has around 15 museums and many other places related to folklore.

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for the flight to Havana. Reception and transfer to the Hotel Deauville.

Day 4. HAVANA (Breakfast)
After breakfast, guided city tour on foot of the historical centre of Havana including a visit to the Palacio de la Artesania.
Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristóbal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. This was one of the main historical reasons for the subsequent development of a city noted for its architectural diversity and whose nucleus still contains an exceptional collection of buildings put up around public squares, and has led UNESCO to declare it a part of its world heritage in 1982. Over eight and a half miles (14 kilometers) of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital, which is symbolized by the Giraldilla. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere. The city itself is a cultural center with a solid infrastructure of hotels and is prepared to host all kinds of conferences and congresses. Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba’s most famous authors, called it “the city of columns” and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer. The settlement of San Cristóbal de La Habana, which was founded in the southwestern part of the island in 1514, was moved to the northern coast of the port of Carenas in 1519. Every November 16th, the anniversary of its founding is observed with a picturesque traditional ceremony at the Templete, around an ancient silk-cotton tree in whose shade-according to tradition, was the first meeting of the town council and where the first Mass was held.
