Tour Overview

Follow the steps of “El Papa” and several places made iconic by his presence in Havana. Head to Finca Vigia, his house in Cuba, nowadays a museum. Next, we will venture into Cojimar, a small fishing town east of Havana’s bay. This place used to be one of Hemingway’s favorite spots; also the home of the man who is said to have inspired “The Old Man and the Sea”. We’ll have lunch in a local restaurant to try some delicious local dishes.

After lunch, we’ll continue to Old Havana, where we’ll be visiting “El Floridita”, the birthplace of the daiquiri cocktail and one of the bars where Hemingway used to relax in the afternoons. Next stop: Hotel Ambos Mundos, the place where “El Papa” used to stay before he bought his house. Our last stop of the day is “La Bodeguita del Medio”, the place where the mojito was invented and another of Hemingway’s favorite bars.


You’ll be picked up at your chosen location in Havana. We recommend starting at 10 AM.

“We did a 7 day experience with Cuba 360 – Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Varadero. Engaged with Cubans throughout and learned tons. Cesar made it so outstanding, right down to learning how to make the very best mojito! Muchas muchas gracias and here’s to a positive future for the people of the US and Cuba!”


“If I could give Cuba 360 more starts I would. These guys go far beyond to make sure you have the best trip. I’m from South Carolina and had a ton of questions about being an American. Cesar was always very quick to provide insight and answer any questions we had…”
