What better way to kick off your Cuban Adventure than with a ride along the Malecon in a pristine Classic American car? Crank up “Shaky Shaky” in your drop-top ’57 Chevy while you see all the major political and historic points in the city including the Hotel Nacional, the US Embassy, and memorials dedicated to Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Tip: In the afternoon, check out the city market in the park near La Fortaleza to find some Cuban artifacts, books, and other souvenirs. Traditional Cuban welcome dinner in the evening. Take to the streets in Old Havana for a night of live music, rum, and dancing – Cubano style!
