Hemingway left an indelible mark on Havana. Journey with our local guide to visit his favorite places to drink in the old city, including the Bodeguita del Medio - the bar that claims to have invented the world famous mojito, and the Floridita - where a world record variety of daiquiris are on the menu, as well as the hotel room where he wrote part of "For Whom the Bell Tolls". We visit the quaint fishing village of Cojímar, which famously harboured his beloved fishing boat and a ranch on the outskirts of Havana that he lived in for 20 years, and where an impressive collection of his personal belongings remain.

    Yenni was an excellent guide in Havana and very knowledgeable about Cuban history. She responded well to any request that I had.I also had a one night stay in Vinales where Emilio was my guide. Again he was excellent and very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about local flora and fauna.

    It would be impossible to explain this trip- it sounded great in the brochures and was even BETTER! Ares was very knowledgable about historical events in Cuba which I am very interested in as a history teacher (retired) He was passionate about Cuba itself, describing it as "paradise". His love for his country made his comments and the tour in general that much more personal and enjoyable. He was an eloquent, knowledgable, & easy to get along w/ guide. He was accommodating to our wishes, answered all questions, & gave his all to the 3 of us. Very charming introduction to Cuba!Rosi`s place in Havana was lovely. The view from her terrace was beautiful- tr ees and in the distance, the ocean.She went out of her way to make good breakfasts and to speak w/ me even though my Spanish is not very good.
