Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Church and Convent of St. Francis of Asisi and Museu Nacional de Belas Artes de Cuba. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales and Castillo de la Real Fuerza. Venture out of the city with trips to Cayo Largo (Playa Mal Tiempo, Sea Turtle Hatchery, & more) and Matanzas (Puente de Bacunayagua & Pharmaceutical Museum). Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Malecón of Havana, examine the collection at Museo Napoleonico, make a trip to Old Square (Plaza Vieja), and steep yourself in history at Fort San Salvador (Castillo De San Salvador De La Punta).
