Havana: Backpacking

Capital of Cuba

A backpacking holiday in Havana is a great way to see the city on a budget. Remember that on entering Cuba you have to have a registered place of accommodation (essentially a hotel) to stay in for the first night, but from then on you can get around and stay in some of hostels and ‘Casa Particular’ available across the city. If you are taking a trip around Latin America then a backpacking holiday in Havana should be a priority. The city is not only a hive of cultural activity but also represents great value for money if you’re willing to seek out bargains. Rum is exceptionally cheap and there is plenty of nightlife to keep you entertained into the small hours. A backpacking holiday in Havana is a definite must for any enthusiastic traveller.
