    The Malecón is the largest bench in the world and also one of the most popular sites of Havana. The first project for the construction of this magnificent seawall dates back to the beginning of the 19th Century. The wall borders 7 Km of the northern coastline of the city, from the entrance to the bay (Castillo de La Punta) all the way to La Chorrera fort at the entrance to the Almendares River.

  • Havana Airport

    José Martí International Airport (IATA: HAV, ICAO: MUHA), sometimes known by its former name Rancho-Boyeros Airport, is located 15 km (9 mi) southwest of Havana, Cuba, and is a hub for Cubana de Aviación, Aerogaviota, and Aero Caribbean, and former Latin American hub for Aeroflot Soviet Airlines.[2] It is Cuba's main international and domestic gateway, and serves several million passengers each year. The airport lies in the municipality of Boyeros and connects Havana with the rest of the Caribbean, North, Central and South America, Europe, and one destination in Africa. It is named in memory of patriot and poet José Martí. In the 1960s the airport was bombed by B-26 aircraft from Brigade 2506, a CIA-sponsored group of Cuban exiles attempting to liberate Cuba from Fidel Castro. Cubans are not allowed to own aircraft or use the airport for either private or commercial flight. Only government-owned aircraft are allowed to use the facilities. There are currently four passenger terminals in use at the airport, plus a freight terminal.[3] Terminal 1 is used primarily for domestic flights. Terminal 2 opened in 1988, primarily for charter flights to the United States. Ten years later on April 27, 1998, the International Terminal 3 was opened by Canada's then-Prime Minister, Jean Chrétien, and former Cuban president, Fidel Castro. International Terminal 3 offers many modern facilities and jetways that the former international Terminal 1 did not provide. Terminal 5 is operated by Aerocaribbean. Today, Copa Airlines is the foreign airline with most flights to the airport, operating 34 flights a week (roughly 5 daily flights) from Panama City, Panama, and Bogota, Colombia. The airport is operated by Empresa Cubana de Aeropuertos y Servicios Aeronáuticos (ECASA).

  • Malecon Avenue is located in Havana
  • Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.

    The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.

    The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.

    Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.

    Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

      Malecon Havana Cuba
      Construction of the Malecón began in 1901, during temporary U.S. military rule. The main purpose of building the Malecón was to protect Havana from the water and the so-called Nortes, but in reality, it wound up serving more for nighttime promenades by Habaneros, for lovers and most of all for individual fishermen. To celebrate the construction of the first 500m section of the Malecón, the American government built a beautiful roundabout at the intersection of Paseo del Prado, which, according to architects of the period, was the first one built in Cuba with steel-reinforced concrete. In front of the roundabout, where every Sunday bands played Cuban melodies, the Miramar Hotel was built, which was very much in fashion for the first 15 years of independence and which was the first one where the waiters wore tuxedos (dinner jackets), vests (waistcoats) with gold buttons, and did not have moustaches. Subsequent Cuban governments continued the extension of the first section of the Malecón. In 1923 it reached the mouth of the Almendares River between K and L streets in Vedado, where the United States Embassy was built, the José Martí Sports Park and further out, the Hotel Rosita de Hornedo, today, the Sierra Maestra.[3] The Malecón continues to be popular among Cubans, especially among those of lesser means whose other means of entertainment are limited. It is also a means of income for poorer families, as individual fishermen cast their lures there. In addition, it is a hotspot for prostitution by men (transvestites, transsexuals, or traditional) and women.[3] Although the houses lining the Malecón are mostly in ruins, the Malecón remains one of the most spectacular and popular destinations in Havana.

      Malecon Avenue
      El Malecon is the famous 8-km / 5-mile promenade that runs along the shoreline to the north of Centro. Locals come here to fish and stroll, while tourists enjoy walking alongside the palms and enjoying the views of both the seafront and the crumbling buildings behind. The Malecon dates back to the early part of the 20th century and this thoroughfare is especially fun on weekends, as it gets rather busy and is awash with cafés and bars. Amongst the Malecon's many attractions is the towering Hospital Nacional Hermanos Ameijeiras, the Monumento a Antonio Maceo and the Torreon de San Lazaro watchtower.

      Malecon Sun sets
      Thats our favourite and themost romantic place in Havana. The Malecon- seafront promenade winds for 7 km alongside the city's historic quarters, from the colonial center to the skyscrapers of Vedado. The Malecon is lined with buildings whose pastel hues have faded in the sun and saltu air. Its ashamed that nobody is renovating them. We could see the staircase, because one of the buildings was missing a front wall. Malecon is a place where locals are mixed with tourist. Fishermen we met were very friendly. It was the most romantic sunset we have ever seen. Malecon will always stay in our memories as a place our love grow up and our first vacation together came true.

      Malecon Seawall
      If you have seen the movie Buena Vista Social Club, you surely remember the waves crashing down on the Malecon in the opening scenes and the first thing you'll probably want to do upon arriving in Havana is go for a walk on the Malecon. The Malecon is a huge sea wall that extends from the Vedado area to La Habana Vieja. On sunny days, you'll see old men fishing and young couples cuddling and kids waiting for the waves to come. On the other side of the street, you'll see some of the old beaten down villas that used to belong to rich American tourists (and mobsters). Of all the places we've been to in Havana, the Malecon is the only place where we didn't get hassled - people just go out there to relax and enjoy the view, and so should you!

      “Very scenic, but be careful! ”
      My wife and I were walking along El Malecon in the middle of the day when she was attacked by a youth trying to grab her gold chain necklace. Luckily he was unsuccessful and ran off when I chased him and shouted. However, a very nasty experience on what otherwise would have been a delightful walk.

      The Malecon is just under 7km in length alongside the sea.

      The Malecon is excellent in the morning as a jogging path or read a book while sitting down before the sun turns blistering hot.
