Havana

Rome of the Caribbean

Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Photography Tours and Nature & Wildlife Tours. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Malecón of Havana, make a trip to Plaza de Armas, contemplate the long history of Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales, and take an in-depth tour of Museo de las Telecomunicaciones de la Habana "ETECSA".

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, use the Havana sightseeing site.

Ljubljana, Slovenia to Havana is an approximately 17-hour flight. Traveling from Ljubljana to Havana, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Ljubljana in November: high temperatures in Havana hover around 33°C and lows are around 21°C. You will have some time to spend on the 17th (Sun) before leaving for Vinales.
