May Day Celebration?

by GroundhogDave

Hello everyone.
Another question about my upcoming trip to Havana. We'll be there May 1, staying in old Havana and I'm looking for information on the May Day celebrations. I haven't been able to find any information on what happens and when... is that info even available? Should we just try to get near the Plaza de la Revolución and see what happens? Any help is much appreciated!

What will probably happen is that the gov't tells everyone where they need to go celebrate according to political affiliation. They will fill up buses with people and bring them. There is already lots of talk of solidarity, etc. ... if you speak a little Spanish, you can follow along in the Cuban news.

Does anybody know if Raul makes an appearance - a public speech or anything?

Travel Tips for Havana

Old American cars everywhere

by mim95

Perhaps Havana is the only place where you can see old American cars in front of a Spanish colonial style house. Only the exterior of many of these cars from the 50s and 60s is originial, the parts and engine are possibly made in Russia or homemade! You can ride in one of them, as many are taxis.

Don´t look up!

by El_Sueco

The addresses in Cuba is a bit peculiar, but handy if you learn to read them.
Example: Calle Refugio 1, e/ Avenida de las Misiones y Zulueta.
The house you are looking for is situated on the street Refugio, number 1, between Misiones and Zulueta.
e/ means 'between'
y means 'and'
Sometimes it says 'esq.' which means the corner of the two streets mentioned.
(A problem that sometimes occurs is that a street can have one official name and one unofficial name that is not on your map. If possible, check with the cubans!)

FUENTE DE LOS LEONES

by LoriPori

Located in San Francisco de Asis Square, in Habana Vieja (Old Havana) the FUENTE DE LOS LEONES or Fountain of the Lions, was built of white carrara marble, by the Italian sculptor Guiseppe Gallini in 1836.
It is a towering sculpture and very beautifully done and very popular for taking pictures.

Convertible Peso

by travelife

Convertible Peso is the Cuban currency pegged to USD as 1 CP = 1 USD. Due to its overvalued status, you have no way changing this currency once you left Cuba. Better spend all your monies in your last min. shopping.

Photographing Havana People

by photopilot

Just one of the many characters that populate Habana Vieja (Old Havana). They hang about and wait for tourists to photograph them, then expect a small tip for being photographed. I love to wander about in Old Havana with my camera, always feeling safe. I love to stop in any of the many coffee shops for an expresso.
