You might be able to find info on living there also. It isnt all about prostitutes. But you'll have to sift through all of that.

Yeah prostitutes, if you want them, you'll need much more than $20,000 to live another 50 years.

Of course, a lot depends on what you like.

But I suggest - walk from the Plaza de Catedral to Plaza Vieja - and then across to Prado.

El Malecon.

If you want to see the whole city, go up the Jose Marti memorial in the Plaza de la Revolucion.

El Morro (old Spanish fortifications).

Take a ride across the bay on the ferry.

The art museums.

Sit in one of the bars in Habana Vieja where they have live music.

If you like jazz - La Zorra y el Cuervo.
For the top Cuban bands - Casa de la Musica.

A day trip to the country - Las Terrazas / La Moka. Or if you travel a bit further Viñales (world heritage site).

Railway enthsiaists - take a ride on the Hershey railway.

How's that to start ?

Hey there,

I've been a few times, both on holiday but also both times left the hotel as soon as I could to travel around the country without being part of some organised tour and packaged together with a load of tourists. Both times I rented a small bike or moped for next to nothing and rode about on that.

First thing to understand is that there is a two-tier monetary system with all the hotels and tourist things operating on Convertible Cuban Pesos (or something like that) which are linked to US dollars and the other cuban money which is virtually worthless, (and tourists are not meant to deal in it). This means that , in effect a bar tender working at a resort can earn far more than a doctor working in a local hospital. It's bonkers, and not right. I just made sure I spread my money about as much as I could to everyone I met out in the wilds. They are great people.

thanks..........
