Your casa particular will be located either in Havana Vieja (Old Havana) or in Vedado. While Havana Vieja is located right in the middle of the city, Vedado is a more quiet and peaceful corner that is just a 10-minute drive from the centre of the city.

You are free for the rest of the day today. Take rest or explore the city on your own.

Day 2

Enjoy a delicious breakfast at your casa particular and start your Oldtimer & city tour with your English-speaking local guide.

Before the tour starts, the guide will give you a short introduction of all the things you can expect when in Cuba. He will also provide you with tips and tricks, allowing you to start the adventure without any worries.

With this tour you will see the most interesting places in Havana by old-timer, think of places like the Parque Central, Paseo del Prado, Avenida del Puerto, the rum museum, the train station, Plaza de la Revolución, and the park with the John Lenon statue.

During the ride the driver will stop several times, so you will be able to take some pictures. After this ride, a local guide will take you through Havana Vieja

Walk through Havana Vieja enjoying all its major highlights. Explore different squares of the city, including Plaza de Armas, Plaza Vieja and Plaza de Catedral. Also travel to the famous shopping street of Calle Obispo as well as to La Bodeguita del Medio (where Hemmingway drank his mojitos), El Templete and El Capitolio.

Trinidad is one of the best preserved colonial cities in Cuba, a living museum whose walls breathe history. It has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites since 1988. This place was once home to rich sugar barons and infamous pirates.
