Hemingway tour with lunch at Paladar, and vintage car (2nd day in Havana) - Departure time: 10:00 am
During this tour you will follow the footsteps of one of the world’s greatest writers, who lived in Cuba for 20 years. You will visit the Hemingway´s former residence, "Finca Vigia", where he wrote a part of his novels, now a museum where you can find his library, hunting trophies, his bar, personal belongings, and his famous boat “El Pilar, that he used to fish, sailing from Cojímar.
Precisely Cojímar is the next stop, a fishermen’s village who´s landscape and people inspired Hemingway to write "The Old Man and the Sea", for which he received the Pulitzer Prize. A walking tour takes you to Hemingway’s statue, (paid by local fishermen and made from old anchors, props, and tools), and Las Terrazas restaurant, the preferred Cojimar hangout of the author.
From here, return to Old Havana, to see room 511 in Ambos Mundos Hotel, where Hemingway used to stay in the 1930s. Like Hemingway himself used to say: “My Daiquirí in “El Floridita” and my Mojito in “La Bodeguita”, referring to the last two stops, the famous bars “La Bodeguita del Medio” y “El Floridita” where you can taste his beloved cocktails. Return to the hotel not included. Drinks at the bars not included. Finca Vigía closed on Sundays
