Old Havana is definitely a tale of two cities.
Some areas look brand new and are extremely clean.
But there a lot of other areas in Havana aside from just Old Havana.
There’s a lot to do besides just taking in the sights. Museums, art galleries, and famous hotels are some of the popular activities in Havana.
The sleek classic cars of Cuba often are a sharp contrast to their surroundings, which are much less sleek.
Regardless, every area of Havana has a life of its own.
Sometimes the city feels like it is straight out of a movie set.
…and sometimes not.
But the subtle chaos of the city provides a lot of excitement for any traveler.
You could be walking down a busy street filled with tourists and then find yourself alone just a few seconds later.
Thankfully, you’re never too far from an extremely photogenic car.
Although these are two of Havana’s most iconic buildings, we didn’t actually stumble upon them until our last couple days in Havana. Not having Internet meant we had no idea what we were even supposed to do in Havana.
We just walked around the entire time, finding cool little gems like this and that was fine with us.
