  • Description

    A real haven in the city, the Parque Central offers an important place to escape the traffic and city noise, growing to its present-day size in the latter part of the 19th century, following the removal of the city walls. Central Park is based within Old Havana and is the main park to head to for relaxation and a picnic. The park lies at the western edge of this historical district and is on par with El Malecon for people-watching. There are museums, colonial buildings, top hotels and walking paths galore. Particularly notable is the Jose Marti statue, the Centro Gallego, the 2000-seater Gran Teatro de La Habana (Grand Theatre), and the very unusual Esquina Caliente - a corner where crowds gather to debate baseball.

  • 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).

  • Playa Baracoa Airport

    Playa Baracoa Airport serves domestic flights scheduled by the local airline Aerogaviota and is situated about 28 km west of Havana, in the village of Playa Baracoa, (Province Artemisa).

  • Parque Central 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.

      “Doesn't really justify a review ”
      It's just a large traffic island. It has a small monument,a few trees and a few benches. At no point do you escape the noise of the traffic. If your hotel isn't near by don't make the effort to go here.

      “Grand name for small, but nice park ”
      Just across from the nice Hotel Iberostar Parque Central this small park is a relaxation area for locals and tourists alike. At one end there is a long line of vintage convertibles lined up for a scenic drive of Havana - or just to be used as a normal taxi. From the central park you can easily access Obispo, the... More

      “Take a rest! ”
      It is positioned on the right spot: there, where you really need the time to rest under a tree, away from all the city heat. Opposite the Capitolio, you can find some peace away from all the city buzz.

      The Parque central is a small quiet oasis just a short walk from the busy Obispo street and the even busier Floridita bar. It's a great place to sit and people watch, and OK you do get hassled but a cheery " No gracias" is usually enough to be left alone !! There are always classic cars parked outside the... More

      The Central Park as it is in the name is in Central Havana, it divides the old Havana area from Central Havana. Close to hotels, bars, museums, restaurants, surrounded by trees and benches that will help you take a break from the heat in your walking around Havana.

      If you speak/understand Spanish, drop by this area of the Parque Central (recongized by a big gaggle of men wildly genticulating) to overhear heated debates about baseball. Also, in the heat of the day, just hang out in the shade, on a bench benneath, and take in the passing scene. You might be hassled by jinatero/as; just be firm in... More
