Hemingway Marina 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.

Senate panel approves lifting Cuba travel ban
A Senate panel easily approved a spending bill amendment on Thursday that would lift a travel ban preventing American tourists from flying to Cuba. Prior to advancing the fiscal 2017 spending bill for financial services and general government, the Senate Appropriations Committee adopted four separate amendments related to travel and trade with Cuba. One amendment approved by voice vote would prohibit federal funds from being used to restrict air travel to Cuba. The language is backed by Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.). Another amendment, also endorsed by voice vote, would allow international flights traveling to or from Cuba to refuel at Bangor Airport in Maine. Flights currently have to refuel in Canada instead of the U.S. because of restrictions mandated by the trade embargo on Cuba. “Reopening travel relations with Cuba is about more than just restoring the freedom to travel there for all Americans—it’s about opening Cuba to new ideas, new values, and improved human rights that our 50 year old policy of isolation could not achieve,” Durbin said in a statement. “While we have to be realistic about the prospects of this Congress fully lifting the embargo on Cuba, today’s committee votes were solid steps in the right direction.” The move comes just a week after the Department of Transportation announced it was authorizing six airlines to begin commercial flights to Cuba this fall. The Transportation and State Departments agreed to re-establish scheduled air service between the U.S. and Cuba as part of the administration’s push to normalize relations with the country. But tourists are still not eligible to fly to Cuba. Currently, travel is only permitted for family visits, official U.S. government business, foreign governments, journalistic activity, professional research, educational activities, religious activities, public performances, humanitarian projects and certain authorized export transactions. “The federal government shouldn’t be in the business of policing Americans’ vacation plans,” said James Williams, president of Engage Cuba. “The travel ban is inconsistent with our values as a free society and I’m glad the Senate Appropriations Committee made it overwhelmingly clear they want that to change.” Senators adopted provision on a 22-8 vote that would repeal a requirement that any U.S. vessel entering a port in Cuba must obtain a license to load or unload freight in the U.S. within 180 days. It would also allow American farmers to extend private financing for exporting agricultural commodities to Cuba. The panel also approved an amendment by voice vote that would permit consumer communication devices or telecommunications services to be exported to Cuba.
Cuba is planning a major expansion of its marinas.
Cuba is planning a major expansion of its marinas. In light of the expected increase in recreational arrivals to Cuba (in large part from the United States), the business group Boating and Marinas Marlin SA is promoting foreign investment proposals aimed at creating new facilities and expanding those in existence. According to Business Director Ramiro Mas Camacho, last year the group presented a portfolio of seven projects, three of which will go forward in the coming months. He said that they have received several offers from foreign investors for the expansion of the Nautical Base Tarara, with the aim of reaching a capacity of 250 berths in the first stage. He added that a project at Darsena Varadero marina is also intended to increase berths while the base project of Santa Lucia, located in Camaguey, also includes a real estate development and golf course adjacent to the facility. Mas Camacho said that the goal for this year is to secure investors for each proposal, and sign the agreements by the end of January 2017. At a recent exhibition of the portfolio at International Tourism Fair, FIT Cuba 2016, Mas Camacho spoke of the possibility of establishing management contracts for funding the expansion of the Marina Marlin Santiago de Cuba. He said that positioning of the facility in the south of the greater Antilles, near Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, may be beneficial for stopovers an boats that sail regularly sail in the Caribbean Sea. He also noted that the group is negotiating with a German company for funding to expand the Marina Cienfuegos, an investment that may also include the construction of theme parks and hotels.

“Waste of time and arrogant to boot :-( ”
We took a special trip to go to the marina from Old Town Havana to try and get great fishing. The whole marina seemed "out to lunch" in every sense. We did eventually get sorted out with a possible fishing boat but the Captain was so disinterested we felt there wasn't any point going, plus it could be dangerous as... More
“the twilight zone ”
we were driving 100 foot motor Sailer during the tail end of hurricane Sandy so you could say it was a case of any port in a storm. There were a few boats in the Marina when we arrived and after clearing official formalities as well as being sniffed over by the cocker spaniel drug detector retied up. I have... More
“Overrated and in dire need of renovation ”
The old man and the sea hotel is closed and the fountain empty except for the statue of an old man and a fist. The marina is run down, tired, and reminiscent of Russian buildings. A definite PASS on this marina.
“Not too great anymore ”
I remember when the Marina used to be an amazing place to go to. Now it's destroyed. You can still come and have fun inside. There are many gorgeous boats and hotels. There used to be many pools, I don't know if they still exist but you can go to the end of the 4th canal and swim there. They... More
“Chill out here! ”
On a corner in the middle of a little village, we entered to find a sweet man playing and the table and chair roped off where Hamming way sat! Lots of photos fill the walls and tales of the great man himself. We enjoyed a cool beer here and chilled out to the sound of the waves and music. Very,... More

“Hidden Gem ”
If you're in Havana and need to have a quick swim this is the place to get to. Grab a taxi and head to the Ernest Hemingway Marina in La Playa area of Havana and enjoy yourself swimming in the Marina. If you are looking for a beach, there is none here but there is swimming and beer, booze, and... More
“Surprise yourself in this place ”
Yachts, channels, beautiful marina and surroundings. Great for pictures and to experience the historic riches of the city.
“Not to be missed if a History Buff ”
We actually booked a full Day tour with the Tour Operator which incorporated the Marina and have to admit this is the best value for money, it was listed as the Ernest Hemmingsway Tour. We went everywhere that was connected to Him including his residence, eating places, his boat(still stored in the grounds of the house) and where he wrote... More
“wonderful Billfishing tournament! ”
I took part in the Ernest Hemingway billfishing tournament and it was just amazing for my friends and I to enjoy the facilities of the hemingway marina in these five days. It was cloudy the last day, though, but we had the opportunity to caught some marlins of more than forty pounds. I indeed recommend it for fishers. George
