    Favorite thing: En el mes de Septiembre estuvimos de vacaciones en Cuba y buscando hoteles por internet vimos que muchos Cubanos estan alquilando habitaciones en sus casas. Nos dio curiosidad y ganas de ensayar pero a la vez desconfianza por ir a casa de personas desconocidas. Al fin decidimos ir a una de estas casas pensando en que si no nos gustaba nos cambiabamos para un hotel. Escogimos la casa de Reina y Paco por los buenos comentarios que vimos en internet y el sitio donde esta hubicada. Al llegar nos dimos cuenta que es el sitio perfecto para hospedarse en La Habana. Los duenos de la casa son personas muy amables dispuestos a ayudar en todo y hasta nos hicieron todos los arreglos de alojamiento en otras provincias que visitamos donde en todas quedamos muy a gusto. La casa de Reina y Paco es un apartamento en un quinto piso (hay ascensor.) Hay un balcon desde donde hay una vista espectacular de la bahia.Tienen dos habitaciones cada una con bano privado, aire acondicionado, amplias, iluminadas, ventiladas, todo muy limpio y organizado. Hay desayuno opcional muy bueno y abundante. El apartamento esta muy bien hubicado, se llega caminando a todos los sitios interesantes de la ciudad vieja y con el malecon en frente para ver los mejores atardeceres. Pueden comunicarsen con ellos al telefono 0053 7 8616495 o al correo electronico "reinamuro58@yahoo.com"

    LA HABANA

    Favorite thing: The Capital of Cuba and a UNESCO World Heritage Site Havana or LA HABANA is also the major port and leading commercial center of Cuba. With 2.3 million inhabitants, Havana is the largest city in both Cuba and the Caribbean region.
    Havana is located 106 miles ( 170 km ) southwest of Key West Florida, on the northwest coast of Cuba.
    I thoroughly enjoyed strolling through the different Plazas like - San Francisco - Plaza de Armas - Plaza de la Catedral and Plaza de la Revolucion.
    I found Havana to be a charming city to visit. It's like it is frozen in time with its vintage cars and Barocque-style buildings. Some of the once grandiose buildings, built during the city's more prosperous times, lie in disrepair, but still adds to the charm of the city. Hans and I are so glad that we decided to take a day tour here.

    Favorite thing: For me ..i can just walk around the streets of habana..or more like walking the malecon from vedado to habana vija starting with some water at hotel telegrafo...maybe sending some e-mails there or the capitol. Then walking around some more..coffee somewhere..maybe a beer in a bar..meeting some friends..maybe many more drinks..or just more walking around..i love the mornings..the smell on the malecon..the waves coming over there..i got used to walking on the street. because its so slippery sometimes I think just looking at the cuban people makes you walk more sexy..as u normaly would walk..well i think i moved my hips much more etc..its just in the air..like the music..and another thing i love soo much is a rocking chair..i spend plenty time in it..and it made me relax soo much..waiting..for whatever..

    Fondest memory: Cooking dinner in my friends houses.. and beeing bought out for dinner and nightclub from my cuban boyfriend. It meant a lot to me as i know they dont have much to give. so after giving so much it was just so nice to get too:)but i cant say this is my foundes memory..because i really have loads more...

    Walk the old town streets in pouring rain

    Tropical old town feelings

    Favorite thing: If you are lucky and not out of sugar, honey, this is what you want to do for getting the real sticky tropical feeling for this hot city. Cubans usually don't use umbrellas and you will not bring yours, will ya? So just enjoy the warm water running down your face and watch the children play in the rain or other people getting wet, too. I loved it....

    Favorite thing: OLD HAVANA
    The right side of the centre of Havana is called Old Havana. (See the map in the Travelogues). Here is where most of the old colonial buildings are. They are now beginning to restore some, but most of them are just falling down, so hurry up if you wanna see them!!

    Favorite thing: You must take a tour of the city of Havana.
    You must visit the city near the harbour, where the cathedral is located. Very beautiful old buildings, but most need restoring.
    The Christopher Columbus cemetary is also a place to be seen, very impressive.
    Do not get caught in going to the Copacabana night club. It might have been something 50 years ago but the shows now are kind of amateurish. The setting however is beautiful.

    Fondest memory: The plaza around the cathedral with all the nice old buildings.
