-------------------------------
Tips:
- Take out as much cash you think you will need for the entire trip! On a higher end we would spend about 100 CUC per day on drinks, taxis, tours, food etc. It definitely adds up and goes quickly so be sure to budget!
- We filled out/purchased our Visas and certification at the airport. We flew with Delta so make sure you confirm that you can do that the day of with your airline.
- Download this app! Trust me it will save you in so many ways. The map on here is amazing and its all "offline" (Just type in "Cuba" in the app store on your phone and its the green one, looks like this) : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.triposo.droidguide.cuba

WHERE WE STAYED: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/15752806
*Amazing place. Super nice couple that rents it. They gave us a phone that works with their numbers in case and everything is super secure. Great location too!

Places we went to:
- Plaza De La Cathedral: This is perfect for a photo-op plus it has an inlet street with the Cafe I mentioned and a bunch of resturants
- Plaza Vieja: Super pretty, definitely go here for lunch. Great views and a ton of restaurant options with live music.
- Parque Central / Paseo Del Prado : This is definitely a must see! You will find the Capitol building, great hotels with rooftop views and a plethora of classic cars to look at or pick one to ride in.
- Museum of Revolution : This is a great way to cool off and kill some time. It was once home to Presidents and is beyond beautiful as it was designed by Tiffany & Co.
- Hotel National- This is a super fancy hotel with amazing views! We stopped to check it out as a lot of our famous favorites have stayed there. It's definitely a taxi distance away from Old Habana though.

Bars:
Hotel Inglaterra- This is an amazing rooftop bar with an incredible view! I had my share of sangria's here :)
Floridita- One of Hemingway's must stop for a Daiquiri. I really loved these but keep in mind they are 6 CUC a piece compared to 3-4 CUC most other places.
La Bodeguita De Medio- Hemingway Bar #2. This was his go-to spot for Mojitos! Beware this is a tourist trap and you might be drinking your mojito on the street depending on the time of the day.

Cafe:
Cafe De O'Reilly- This was our go-to for breakfast and morning coffee. Try the Cafe Bombon, it was my favorite.

Dinner:
La Guarida- We found this to be our favorite spot. The restaurant requires reservations, but if you forget like us, you can go up to the roof for amazing sunset views and the best food we had the whole trip!

Tips:
- The classic cars you see are Taxi's and cost more than the regular cars. You can however rent one for around 20 CUC for an hour city tour. Definitely worth it. Plus they make for great photos ;)
- If you are staying in Old Habana, the entire area of Habana Vieja and everything I mentioned is super walkable.

Hi! What video camera did you use??? :)

Author Fiorella Canache ( ago)
Amazing! Your videos looks so cool. I love it! greetings from Venezuela.

Author Roland Jefferson ( ago)
Three questions: 1) AS an American citizen did you leave out of Canada or a US airport?
2) Any trouble converting EUROS to CUC at the Cuban airport?
3) Did you and boyfriend travel solo or part of larger tour group licensed as one of the 12 allowed categories?

Author Noor Miles ( ago)

Hi Tess! I'm a new subscriber and I'm loving all your videos. Can you make a video about your outfits in this video? And also, what kind of visa did you fill out at the airport? I read online that Cuban visas are still restricted to only allow mostly government/educational visits. Thankssss!:)

Author Sara Cilea ( ago)
I find it so weird how even though they're so far away a lot of the architecture in Cuba reminds me of some places in Sicily :D

Author Dlz Smn ( ago)
Wow so beautiful

Author Eco Cuban ( ago)
Don't go to a resort if you want to meet the real cuban people! Avoid big hotels chain and support locals by staying at their home :)

Author zack mix ( ago)

The travel montages are very "slice of life" and well made. the only thing that would make it better is if the camera quality were higher

Author Pedro Machin Garcia ( ago)

Author A Rosie ( ago)
omg this is so funny! My sister was there exactly when you were😂😂😂

Author Vanessa Sander ( ago)
I met a lot of really nice cubans but the mayority only sees you like money when you´re a tourist. And I even speak spanish!
And what you didn´t experience is traveling cuba alone as a woman. I couldn´t walk around without some cuban man catcalling me every 30-60 seconds. And no, I didn´t dress up sexy. Not even comparable to the way cuban woman dress up. In the end I really just wanted to leave Cuba because I was sick of being seen as a sex object and treated like one too.

Author LeMon ( ago)
What are you wearing under off-the-shoulder tops? I love them, but I can't figure out how to wear them comfortably.. >.<

Author Rachel Earls Vlogs ( ago)
Totally agree, some of the nicest people we've met on our travels! My husband and I went to Cuba the end of December and loved it! We were in Havana and then hopped over to Trinidad!

Author MrMelgibstein ( ago)

Hey Tess! I'm going to Cuba in a couple weeks and was wondering if you could take things such as curling irons and straighteners? Might be a dumb question but I'm just not sure! Also, how's the humidity there? I have extremely frizzy hair so maybe it's not even worth doing my hair for the trip? Thank you!

Author rialew ( ago)
