General Tour Information
As with all Livingstone’s breaks and tour, this Havana City Break is taken at a relaxed pace to ensure you get the most from the trip. The services of knowledgeable English speaking guides are included to guide you though the 500 years of history, the melting pot of cultural influences, the amazing architecture and the people, both famous and infamous that make p Havana today.
The City break will be added to the end of your golfing holiday and those arriving from Gatwick will return from José Martí International Airport in Havana. If you flew in from Manchester, you will be transferred back to Juan Gualberto Gómez Airport in Varadero.
Havana is Cuba’s capital city, largest port and main commercial centre. Spanish colonial architecture in its 16th-century Old Havana includes the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, a fort and maritime museum. The National Capitol Building is an iconic 1920s landmark. Also in Old Havana is the baroque Catedral de San Cristóbal and Plaza Vieja, whose buildings reflect the city’s vibrant architectural mix.
And yet with all of this going on you can still find a place to relax, either in the National Botanical Gardens with over 4000 native plants species or on the Playas del Este, a coastline of nine tropical white sand beaches and turquoise waters only 20 minutes from the city.
For culture vultures a visit to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is a must or you could take in a performance at the Gran Teatro de La Habana, headquarters of the National Ballet of Cuba, the National Lyric Theater and the Spanish Ballet of Cuba.
