Havana September 22-29th

by marshallsteve

Hi,
Hoping to visit Havana in September after a week in Mexico City.
Is the weather 'sunbathing' weather during September or is it likely to be a mixture?
Planning on staying at Parque Central unless anyone can suggest alternatives?
Nightlife - is there a particualr area of Havana that is suggested for bars, clubs, etc?
Thanks, Steve

September as you probably no is still hurricane season so the weather in Havana can be unpredictable at that time but assuming there's no storms then it should be warm and humid as normal although the sky can be quite overcast at times so not always ideal for sunbathing.

The Parque Central has a great location right in the centre of Havana and was the most "westernised" of the hotels I saw there.

Nightlife is wide spread along the city. Real night life starts very late (re: midnight). While during the days Old Havana is where most of the so-called “action” happens (re: bars, music, attractions, etc) then at night time this area is very quiet.

There are a number of hotels to pick from depending upon taste. Mostly those in Old Havana (with the exception of P.Central) are boutique colonial architecture hotels. P.Central is certainly among the top 5 hotels in the City.

Travel Tips for Havana

MURAL ARTISTICO HISTORICO

by LoriPori

This mural, by artist Andres Carrillo, is a beautiful legacy to Cuban culture. This MURAL ARTISTICO HISTORICO named "Mural Merchants" took nearly 6 years to complete and the artist used special dyes for his masterpiece. 67 Prominent members of Havana are depicted here. The artwork was finally completed on December 27, 2000.

Phone calls cost a lot

by Soozay

If you don't have to make a phone call from Cuba, don't. The average price per minute is anywhere from a dollar U.S. to 2. I've heard of instances where the phone was not hung up from the caller's end and then they find out they have a phone bill for thirty dollars or more.
If you're staying at a resort have your family call you there rather than you calling out.

El Malecon Habanero

by mannymiami

El Malecon Habanero One of my favorite things about Havana is hanging out on the Malecon. This is where you can see people of all walks of life. This is Havana's front porch. From the beginning at 'La punta', Prado and ,Malecon, this here is where the entrance to the bay of Havana starts to the end just before you cross the bridge to Miramar you can get a look of all the diffrent types of characters that hangout and stroll on the seaside blvd...

A revolutionary wedding ceremony

by El_Sueco

It might seem that I have an obsession for marriage in foreign countries ...
Be as it may, here is the story:
When passing the building with these stairs in Vedado we were invited to vitness a civil marriage that occured in the building.
We accepted the invitation and gathered amongst all the relatives and friends to the couple that had come. The officiant read the proper words about marriage and the revolutionary point of view of the importance of being married. (Much the same as in the church ceremonies.)
The photographer missed to take photos when the couple signed their names and they were asked to do it again.
- Shall I sign again?, said the bridegroom, and all were laughing - except the officiant. Perhaps she thought that this cermony was too serious to be laughed at.
She was acting very professional, but I felt sympathy for her, not being able to relax just for a short minute.

EL MALECON

by LoriPori

Built along the Northern coastline of Havana, during the early 1900's EL MALECON is a favourite walk for the locals and tourist alike. It runs along the main arteries of Havana and provides incredible views of the Bay. The famous 12 kilometre oceanside road links Old Havana to the busy neighbourhood of Vedado,
We could see children playing, locals fishing, and folks just enjoying the afternoon of bright sunshine.
