Mexico City or La Havana ? which one to choose for 1 week vacation

by mounirco

Hi Guys,
I have a week vacation at the end of may, and I have the choice between these two cities... I've never been to Cuba (I'm Canadian citizen so i won't have a problem) and la Havana seems very nice city. I wil have the chance to see the city and to go to the beach (playas del este)...BUT, Mexico city is a gem. It is must see city...
I don't know which one to choose....
Any thoughts ????

Re: Mexico City or La Havana ? which one to choose for 1 week vacation

You pretty much answered your own question. It all depends on what you're feeling like. I've been to Havana, it's a nice city with fascinating sites. It's really quite interesting to see how people leave under the regime as well. The beaches around Havana are amazing and pristine. The night life is very traditional to Cuba.

Mexico City is huge. There's enough museums, theaters, sites to keep you entertained forever. The ambivalence of the city is also different from what you find in a beach city like Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, etc. The night life is more international than in Cuba. There are a bunch a haut cuisine restaurants and great hotel chains like The Four Seasons. If you are into those sort of things, you won’t find that in Cuba.

So it pretty much depends on how you're feeling. Are you in the mood for a mega metropolis, or for a smaller less international city that is more tranquil?

Travel Tips for Mexico City

There is certainly plenty to...

by Luis_Alberto

There is certainly plenty to do in this wonderful city, however, I do not recommend staying very long, because of the tremendous smog problem affecting this city. Attending some plays at the many theatres in Mexico City. The incredible variety of good restaurants in town. Visiting friends and their wonderful hospitality.

The Judas Burning

by pencho15

The Judas burning is a tradition whose origins can be traced in the colony.
It is believed that this celebration comes from the valencian "Fallas", a festivitie organized in this spanish city in saint Joseph day. The tradition was brought to Mexico by the priests dedicated to evangelize natives.
On holy saturday a cardboard devil (within 3 to 15 meters hight) is hunged in public squares and curchs atriums and burned (according to the tradition to punish Judas for betraying Christ)
In XVII century gobernors figures were burned along the devils, a tradition that has survived despite many attempts to forbid it. While the Judas burns a band plays music and some people dances disguised as demons.
This celebration is dissapearing in Mexico City, though it remains popular in other states of my country and some cultural institutions are trying to recover it. La Merced and Cuajimalpa (where the devil is made of clothes) are the most famous burnings, i`ve also seen it behind the cathedral.
If you go to a burning keep a safe distance with the devil, the figure has some gunpowder so it explodes. accidents are not ussual but is better not to take the risk.

What To Bring To Mexico D.F.

by AnnaLupilla

You can bring whatever amount of luggage your airline allows if you come here. I always travel with a big backpack, but to get to know the city, I would recommend you to bring a some kind of comfortable bag for your guide book, and necessary stuff. If you come to Mexico in winter, you should always keep in mind that it is located in 2300m above sea level, so it can get pretty cold at night. Therefore you should bring a jacket and jeans (trousers) with you. During the day I would recommend a pair of trousers and T-shirt or shirt.
Besides, wearing touri-stylish kind of pants always is a question of style and going there remember that you are in a big city, so no beach wear! Also … the more “turistic” you look, the more you attract thieves. Also, as you are in a big city, you can find many stylish bars and restaurants, so bring apropiate clothes with you! You can get about any kind of things in the city, but what you definitely should bring, if you are used to it and can't live without, is shower gel, as this does not exist in a great variation.

Flowers in Jamaica!!!

by Matravel

Mexico City has a long tradition in markets. The Market of Jamaica has 350 shops that sell a huge variety of flowers. Vendors also offer dry flowers and other accessories.
Browse the open air market and mingle with real Mexicans in a real setting.

Polanco Neighbourhood.

by Aptypo

Polanco Neighbourhood.

This once quiet residential neighbourhood now is filled with offices and apartments buildings, hotels, restaurants, chic boutiques, and shopping centers.

For a sophisticated dose of modern Mexico City, visitors should head to Polanco neighbourhood to spend the afternoon or just shopping.

Everything is very expensive.
